Reheating Food on Shabbat

| |

Chazal forbade putting fully cooked food on the fire on Shabbat because one could come to stoke the coals. Additionally it is mechzi k’mevashel, it appears as if one is cooking. However, if one satisfies five requirements, then bishul becomes chazara and is permitted l’chatchila.

The five conditions are,

1.      the flame must be covered,

2.      the food must be fully cooked,

3.      it must still be warm,

4.      one may not release one’s hold on the pot, and

5.      one must have intention to return the pot to the fire.
