If you have mouths to feed and places to be, there's nothing quite as bothersome as realizing you forgot to take dinner out of the freezer.
While hot water baths and the microwave are old standbys, if you would prefer defrosting your food sans heat, Amazon shoppers say this unique rapid defrosting tray is worth checking out.
Yibidys rapid defrosting tray is a unique method for defrosting frozen meat, fish, and other frozen food. The 3mm-thick aluminum tray features deep draining channels, encouraging food to defrost faster than on a plate or wooden cutting board.
The defrosting tray comes with a drip tray to catch any melt-off liquid, a pair of tongs, and a silicone sponge for easy clean-up. It measures 11.6 by 8.1 inches, fitting larger cuts of steak, poultry, and fish.
What people are saying
While the defrosting tray has only collected a handful of reviews from Amazon shoppers, its fans call it a "great way" of "thawing meat naturally."
One user, who writes that they often forget to take meat out of the freezer for dinner, says the defrosting tray "works well."
"I was skeptical" of the tray, they write, but "to my surprise, it worked!"
The tray was a "success" for thawing steak and chicken, they say.
Another shopper agrees that while the tray is "very thin," it "works." It was "rated as the best," they write.
Despite an average 4.6-star rating, reviews for the defrosting tray are sparse, which in itself is something to keep in mind when placing your order.
