Default PSA- great product

Anybody besides me use these things? I have been using them for a long time, and I swear by them! I actually use two, run hot water on them first to “prime” them, then sandwich my frozen steaks or fish between the two, and…voila…thawed in no time! I don’t have the drip tray; not needed!

Ill have to check that out thanks. Best method I ever had was when we had a pool and the frozen item was vacuum sealed. Into the pool the steak went and within 5 min fully de thawed lol.

Please don’t ever do this with sausage. If that bag breaks they’ll turn into floaters and nobody’s getting in that pool again.

Randy you could start a side hustle. You could link the Amazon link to your affiliate marketing. Lol

Seriously I will definitely check that out. I like cool gadgets. About how long will it take to defrost a normal size steak.

They do. We now have a dishwasher underneath granite countertop. I put some fish out on it not thinking and my wife ran a cycle with heat dry. I came back to hot bagged fish haha. Its understood now that area is off limits.

Nope. They it is just an aluminum plate with grooves and painted black (although the paint on one of my two is flaking off), and they absorb the cold, thus thawing the frozen meat/fish pretty rapidly. As I mentioned, I prime the plate(s) with hot water first to warm them and speed up the process.

You can get them from some dollar stores or off Amazon.

I think it works exactly the opposite of the fins on an air cooled engine. Those fins have enough surface area to radiate the heat away from the engine.

The thawing plate probably (by conduction) draws the cold away and disperses it over much more of a surface area.

But it has been 49 years since I took physics in high school….
