This Defrosting Tray will take over dinner prep when you’re forgetful

Defrosting Tray

Making dinner is not a particularly difficult thing to do, but it does take a little bit of planning ahead for things to go smoothly. If you forget to buy an ingredient, you have to adjust the recipe or find a replacement. If one method of cooking fails you or you don’t have the right utensils, then you have to jerry-rig something so it works. Worst of all, if you forget to thaw the meat, you have to either partially cook it in the microwave, waste clean water, or cook it from frozen, which doesn’t always work.

If you wish you could speed up the thawing process without using any of the above listed methods, then this Defrosting Tray could do all the work for you. This is a tray with conductive strips that will make cooking dinner seem like far less of an ordeal if you forgot to pull out meat from the freezer with enough time for it to thaw. There are lines in the top to catch the fat that comes off during the process, and rubber feet on the bottom to keep it from sliding everywhere.

Measuring 14 x 18”, this isn’t exactly big enough for the whole family, but it could help out one or two people with an evening meal. It’s best to hand wash this in warm soapy water since the dishwasher could affect its ability to do its job. One of these will cost you $13.99, though most households will need two if you have a home full of hungry people.

  1. Our family had one of those about 30 years ago. It even looks exactly the same. It was a waste of money then and probably still a waste of money now. It never worked like they said so was thrown out in the rubbish where useless products like this deserve to go.

  2. This is genius! I’m probably the most forgetful person and I do not even go shopping without a list of products to buy. And this tray is just irreplaceable thing for me: each time I want to cook meat I remembered that it should have been thawed and I changed my decision and should pick up another dish. Great thing for a fair price!
