Hey everyone is it just me or do your onigiri fall apart after you warm them up in the microwave? I have frozen them and also just kept them in the fridge till I needed them, but when it comes time to warm them up to get ready for packing they get all mooshy and fall apart :( I only heat them for a tiny bit too.. if anyone can help me that would be great!

Mine always stay together, but I warm them up in the plastic wrap I wrap them and freeze them in. (I know a lot of people who wouldn't heat up plastic wrap, but I'm not particularly nervous about it.)

If you are using sushi rice they should stay together, but if they've been sitting not wrapped up, you might put a drop of to of water on them before you heat them to help them get their sticky texture back.
