The BEST Way To Reheat Croissants

I have tested countless different methods to find out what does the best job at keeping croissants, fresh, flakey and buttery.
Even when they've been in the cupboard for a couple of days. Here's the best way to reheat your croissants.

  • 1 piece croissant
  • 1 piece pain au chocolat etc


  • Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
  • Cover the croissant with foil (optional, see notes below).
  • Heat the croissant for 4-5 minutes in a conventional oven or 2-3 minutes in a toaster oven.
  • Remove the foil for the last 2 minutes of cooking (optional, see notes below).


Should you use foil?
Using foil traps any steam the croissant produces and results in a moister croissant, but the crust of the croissant won’t be crispy or flaky (like it is without foil).
Instead, the crust is soft. You can always combine the two methods and cover the croissant with foil at first, then uncover it for the last few minutes to crisp the exterior. This is my preferred method because you get the moist inside and the flaky outside.
