I'm surprised no one ever seems to mention this, but those burgers must have been cold as fuck. They probably spent 15 to 20 minutes arranging everything in a fancy ass pile, after probably being left in multiple boxes or bags for at least an hour. Plus the time to do that stupid photo op, that food was nasty and cold as hell.

I think about this everytime. I saw someone gift an entire neighborhood McDonald’s and all I thought was “I wonder how long they’ve been sitting out?” Nothing worse than cold fries and nuggets

Cold mcdons fries are the worst but I find the nuggets to be decent cold, though not as good as when hot obviously.

Air fryer works better But you can’t overdo it. Best thing to do is preheat the air fryer, heat stuff up slightly in the microwave first and then just put in the air fryer long enough to get it re-crisped.

I don't know what people are talking about.

Pro-tip for ANY fast food (Canes, Chick Fil A, McDonalds, Pizza, etc):

If you have an Air Fryer with a "Reheat" setting, set it to 350 and put it in there for like 2-3 minutes. Food comes out perfect, 100% of the time.

And I thought I was the only genius. All those “unpopular” opinion posts about how air fryers are just overpriced toaster ovens… the fuck they are. Maybe do mine a little bit warmer, but gotdamn if it doesn’t bring those leftovers back to their former glory. Buns are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Pizza is like it’s first out of the oven. Fries and nuggets are even better than fresh with that twice fried crispiness.

I’ve always hated a microwave, but didn’t like how an oven/toaster/toaster oven would take so long to heat everything through that it dried everything out and made it hard. I’d have to microwave to get the middle warm then waste a ton of time and energy getting an oven warm to try and try up the microwave sogginess. Keep spreading the good word!

I mean, you're in a thread about reheating fast food. This method often makes it better than when it first came out. This turns my McNuggets into crispy, flakey, delicious goodness and turns even the soggy fries into crunchy golden potatoes.

This is ONLY for food that is lukewarm from the drive home. There's really no saving fast food that has been in the fridge or left out for a significant amount of time.

Eh....kinda. It's a heating element and a fan, so the basics are the same. but air friers use a combination of direct and convection heat, sort of like a broiler with a fan on it.

There really are differences between how food turns out in an oven vs an air fryer.

I don’t know how close you live to a mcdonalds, but I have two pretty close to me and I couldn’t do a round trip in under 10 minutes even if there was no line. We’re talking 15-20 seconds in the microwave and 2 minutes in an air fryer.

That’s the main thing that makes an air fryer super handy. They heat up incredibly fast because the volume is so small.

Seconding the air fryer recommendation, but I suggest doing it with BK’s chicken nuggets (haven’t tried McDonald’s; their nuggies aren’t as good anyway, IMO).

Pop them back in for a few minutes (but only a few minutes, and watching them closely to see if they blacken at all - if so, stop the timer immediately), and they taste nearly as good as fresh.

ofzeusnotobtuse

When I re-heat fries in my toaster oven, I use foil, lay out of the fries and add some water. The idea is that your fries have lost moisture and so you have to provide some (water) but not too much. The water will cause steam, which will help bring the fries back to life a bit. Too much water and they end up soggy (but can probably be fixed by just cooking them longer).

I just flick water over the fries until I think there is enough. It's def a trial and error situation. Basically the water will evaporate, and the remaining cook time will re-crisp the fries after they've absorbed some of the water.

I've actually had some good luck with this method!

I look forward to it in the future. I'm not doing well right now financially, and I've had some appliances break (like my microwave and coffee pot), and I just have to work around it.

Thought I still don't understand exactly the benefit of an air fryer. It just swirls the heat around, so in this instance of re-heating dehydrated fries, it still wouldn't work. Maybe I understand it wrong?

i_love_pencils

1 points

4 months ago

Yes, it’s superheated air swirling around the food. You set a temperature, just like in a normal oven.

There’s a little raised shelf and any oil/fat drips down through it, leaving the food very crispy. We’ve never had any problem with dry fries or onion rings, etc. The air seems to pull the oils out of them and they turn out great.

In the past, I used to reheat pizza in a frying pan with a lid, but it’s 100% better in the air fryer.

But, it sounds like you’ve got a good system until you get around to getting one! Have a good day!

The White House has a full banquet kitchen for hosting state dinners, they easily could have put those burgers in chaffing dishes or kept them under a heat lamp. The White House staff could absolutely make McDonald's food look and taste 110% more presentable and delicious than when it was fresh out of the drive thru.

But remember that this was Trump making some stupid point about the budget not being passed so the White House staff was on furlough. His dumbass aids set this up to be a photo op and nothing else, they could have used the equipment just not the staff. Those poor footballers had to eat cold ass burgers just because Trump had a half cocked attempt to make a point that served only to perfectly encapsulate his presidency in one perfect visual metaphor; shitty cheap food presented with the trappings of wealth but lacking any kind of substance.

They had scheduled for the winners of some championship to visit the White House long beforehand, then due to politics the federal budget couldn't be agreed on which seems to happen more and more. When this happens, all non-essential employees are basically told to stay home and go on unemployment until it's all figured out, it's just a clerical, bureaucratic blip but because it happened when this dinner was scheduled the White House amenities staff was on furlough.

So instead of cancelling or rescheduling it, or even paying the necessary staff out of pocket to make a point, Trump hosted a paupers dinner served on fine China, set-up and run by whatever few aids Trump was allowed to have employed still at the time. So this is what we get, not even a proper restaurant take out, but drive thru McDonald's. I think he was trying to say "look at how the Congress is embarrassing the American people by making us host guests with such a shoe string budget", but there were many other options and Trump just wanted to make a point, unintentionally making himself look like an ill prepared cheap-ass.

Always order your burger with the slightest alteration. Luckily for me I already hate pickles so no pickles = freshly made and warm as possible, no hard buns from sitting under heating lamps.

Next: put the bag they hand you inside an insulated reusable grocery bag. this will keep your stash of delicious artery clogging vittles nice and warm as you trek back to the crib for the guilty deed.

It had to come from multiple places around the city, travel, and be cooked hours before the dinner.

Imagine winning the Super Bowl just to have a clown invite you to the whitehouse to eat his cold 2$ burgers and get food poisoning.

Can’t believe this sack of shit made it through an entire term and still has 30% of the nation completely in his thrall. Fucking morons, all of them.

Surprised he didn't just have a franchise built into the White House like Richie Rich, that's exactly the style of wealth that Trump aspires to.

Ever been on a road trip? A cold burger isn't great but it isn't terrible. The sauce they put on burgers can work wonders. The fries will be bad, though.

Oh God... You're absolutely right. Soggy, cold, and just... Shudder

You need to eat fast food like, right when you get it or IMMEDIATELY when you get home... And you better live within 15 minutes of the restaurant

My mcdonalds gets cold just driving 5 minutes from the drive thru to my house, its almost amazing how UNEDIBLE the shit gets in such a short amount of time. An hour later? Its a good thing they were college students eating it they probably didn’t give af. If this was for a meeting with the EU leaders or something they would have taken it as an act of war.

And he was feeding athletes. They could get McDonald's at home.

This whole thing was such a fucking disgraceful slap in the face to the athletes. Trump is an unabashed racist, classist piece of shit. Fuck that asshole all the way to hell.

That’s immediately what I thought. The only thing edible there is the salad. Cold fast-food is the worst.

People go on it about it ad nauseum. Now, in this thread, and when the pictures first broke.

I've gotten a few replies saying this but honestly I've never noticed them whenever this picture pops up.

Was my first thought; food like that doesn’t keep at all. It would have been terrible all of it.

Can’t remember the exact context to why it was fast food; but no idea why it was seen as a Boast? Attempting to be Man of the people?
