How to Revive Stale Cereal
Instagram account Problem Solved, which tackles everyday problems you can encounter in the kitchen and gives surprisingly simple solutions for them, recently posted a video that shows how you can easily revive stale cereal.
According to the video, all you need to do is line the cereal on the baking sheet and pop them in an oven at 300F. Let them bake for five to 10 minutes, and they should be as good as new.
Cereals usually get stale because they pick up moisture after being stored improperly. Baking them in an oven will dry out the moisture and revive the crunch you like.
