Q. How does ThawTable defrosting tray work?
A. It helps to conduct the warmer, room temperature air into the frozen meat, and the cooler temperature into the board, thereby raising the temperature of the frozen meat and defrosting it. Want to speed up even faster, prop our defrosting tray up 2-inches(Wine Cork, Bottle Cap, Orange Juice Cap), which accelerates the thawing process, by increasing room temperature air flow around the surfaces.
Q. Why use a defrosting tray?
A. Using a Microwave, which seems to be the go-to rookie mistake, dries out edges of meat and can even cook your food. By properly defrosting with ThawTable, you are containing more of the juice in your meat, keeping it moist for cooking. Similarly with alternative thawing methods, like water thawing or counter thawing you have to more tightly follow recommendations, regardless of always being aware of them, as these are deemed not safe and can lead to foodborne illnesses and bacteria multiplying.
