You can either heat rice dishes on your stove top or in the microwave. If you're going with the former, put rice in a saucepan and add a splash of water. Heat over medium-high until the rice starts to sizzle. Stir to incorporate and warm the rice for about a minute, then cover pot and let steam off the heat for 5 minutes, until fluffy. If you're using a microwave, put rice into a microwavable bowl, add a splash of water, then heat covered with plastic wrap (not touching the rice) until heated through, about 3 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Stews and Soups
It takes a little patience, but you should reheat soups and stews slowly in a pot over medium heat. Letting it rip on high will cause lots of liquid to evaporate, making you lose part of your precious lunch (or dinner or snack or whatever).
I won't tell you details about the incident at a not-for-profit where I worked many years ago when one of the staffers reheated his leftover fish in the toaster oven everyone else made bagels in every morning.
