Heating up a congealed gravy on shabbat – is this permitted?


Congealed gravy should not be heated up on Shabbos, since this involves changing the state from solid to liquid, and also a question of “cooking” the gravy by heating it up.

If a food only has a small amount of gravy, it is permitted to heat it up (in a permitted manner) and one does not need to be concerned from the small amount of gravy. But if the amount is significant, so that the gravy is considered an independent entity, one must refrain from heating it on Shabbos.

Best wishes.
