DID IT WORK? Lol, not for me.
THE RESULTS: I started by placing an equal serving of frozen salmon, chicken, and broccoli on both a defrosting tray and a plain plate, and left them out at room temperature. Once two hours had passed, I checked the defrosting tray and found it FRIGID, which I initially thought spoke to the tray’s magical cold-absorbing powers. But then I checked the plate and found it to be equally cold. Cutting up the food also made zero difference.
If I really wanted a similar product to expedite the defrosting, I think I could just use a cast-iron skillet — or just defrost in the microwave. Though if we’re being completely honest, even on my non-lazy days, I’ll never have enough foresight to start thawing a meal hours in advance.
(Also worth noting? This thing had a ton of positive reviews on Amazon. So maybeee it’s user error or I just got a defective tray? IDK. ¯_(ツ)_/¯)
Get it from Amazon for $15.50.
