How Long Do You Microwave Hot Pockets?

Hot Pockets microwave preparation times are between 1 minute and 2 minutes and 15 seconds. Hot Pockets are a brand of ready-to-eat, hand-held sandwich found in the frozen section of the grocery store. Hot Pockets are prepared in a microwave or conventional oven, as per the package directions. Microwave preparation times will vary depending on the wattage of the microwave oven and if the Hot Pocket is frozen or thawed.

According to Nestle, the parent company of Hot Pockets, a frozen Hot Pockets Cheeseburger sandwich should cook for 2 minutes in a 1100 watt microwave oven. A refrigerated sandwich cooks for 1 minute. In a 700 watt microwave oven, a frozen Hot Pockets Cheeseburger sandwich cooks for 2 minutes 15 seconds. After microwaving, remove the sandwich and let sit for 2 minutes. The sandwich will be very hot. Use caution when handling.

Hot Pockets may also be cooked in a conventional oven. After placing the frozen sandwich on foil or a baking sheet, cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 24 minutes. Since all ovens vary, cooking times may require adjustments. If thawing a Hot Pocket before cooking, Nestle recommends thawing under refrigeration (less than 41 degrees Fahrenheit) for a maximum of 12 days.
