  • Does anyone remember those defrosting pans

    Remember a few years ago, as-seen-on-tv was selling those things that defrosted meat quickly...did anyone buy one?

    I just found out that a cookie sheet does just as well. I have a old aluminum cookie sheet and it will defrost a 2-in. thick roast in under 2 hours. Before I tried this, I would put a roast on the counter, still in the store packaging, and it would take all day. I should have tried this a long time ago!!!

      Been using my "air-bake" cookie sheets for years to defrost meat fast! It really works!!

        I turn my cast iron frying pan upside down and toss whatever needs defrosting, on top. Works like a charm.

                You can basically use any heavy pan. Put the frozen item (preferably in the wrappings so you don't get 'juices' all over) on the pan and just let it sit on the counter for a couple of hours. It has something to do with the way heat and cold is conducted thru metal.

                    I haven't tried anything except flat meats. Does it work for a whole chicken too?

                      Here's what I found about how it works.
                      Metal alloy (aluminum) that draws energy heat from the air & displaces it back into the metal alloy of the tray & then into product that you are defrosting.

                      I found that the pan was discontinued because of the danger of thawing meat at room temperature. It said that thawing meat for longer that 2 hours at room temperature "may" be dangerous.

                      I guess I won't try thawing chicken that way. I'll just do it in the frig. like I usually do.

                        Actually, if you turn the thing you are trying to defrost, after an hour, I find that most anything defrosts in 2 hours. I always check the item about every half hour, and if it does not still feel cold on the outside, I move it to the fridge.
