Commonly Asked Questions

How do I reheat my crab rangoon?

The best way to reheat them is to bake them in the oven for 5 minutes at 300 degrees F. If you have an air fryer, it works just as fine to reheat these little wontons. Both methods will liven up the crispiness back to its original state and will taste just as great!

Can the crab rangoon be refrigerated after being assembled?

You can, but keep in mind that the crab rangoon will only last for 3 to 4 days in the fridge. We also recommend sealing them in an airtight container to avoid spoilage. This will ensure the crab rangoon won’t dry up in storage.
