Defrost food quickly without the need for an oven or microwave. Your Andrew James Defrost Tray will save you time while still ensuring that food is safe to cook and eat. Defrosting food has never been easier - whether you want to prepare raw meat, frozen vegetables, fruit for smoothies, or a pre-made meal, your Andrew James Defrost Tray can significantly decrease the time it takes for your food to defrost. 

The longer you leave meat out to defrost, the more time bacteria can develop - which is why the defrost tray is a great way to quickly and safely defrost meat and other foods. 

This aluminium defrost plate is a superb conductor that brings your food up to room temperature much more quickly than just putting food onto a plate in the kitchen. There isn’t any need to use a microwave or oven, so there is no risk of partially cooking food while defrosting. By using no chemicals, electricity, or heat, the Andrew James Defrost Tray boasts a natural thawing process when defrosting meat or other foods. There is no loss of nutrients, and food maintains its original flavour. 

The grooves help to draw the cold liquids away from the food, and you can place the thaw board on some kitchen roll or in a baking tray to collect some of the juices. 

The non-slip feet on each corner of the defrost tray help to raise the tray slightly and make it easier for you to pick it up. Once your food has finished defrosting, simply pop the tray in the dishwasher or scrub in the sink using hot soapy water for a quick clean. Due to its compact size, it is also very easy to store away.
