Defrost Your Food Quicker: Your Andrew James Defrost Tray will soon become an essential in your kitchen. Depending on the food and its thickness, it may take as little as 20 minutes to defrost. 
No Electricity Required: This handy quick defrost tray lets you defrost food both quickly and safely. There isn’t any need for a microwave or oven so there isn’t a risk of partially cooking food while you are defrosting it. 
Non-Slip Silicone Corners: The modern non-slip silicone corners grip your work surface and prevent your meat defrosting tray from slipping across the bench as well as allowing you to easily handle the tray. 
Dishwasher Safe: The tray features grooves that allow liquid from frozen food to be drained away. Simply place a piece of kitchen roll underneath the tray to catch it. The non-stick surface is very easy to clean and also dishwasher safe.

Defrost food quickly without the need for chemicals, electricity, or your microwave. When you want to defrost food quickly, your Andrew James Defrost Tray will save you time while still ensuring that food is safe to cook and eat.

Defrosting meat and other 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.

Actual defrosting time does vary, as it depends on the food itself and the thickness, but here are some guidelines:

Frozen Pastry - 20 Minutes

Bacon Slices - 25 Minutes

Sausages - 30 Minutes

Pork or Lamb Chops - 60 Minutes

Large Chicken Breasts - 80 Minutes

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

The non-slip feet on each corner of the defrosting tray help raise the tray slightly and make it easier for you to pick it up.

Once you have finished defrosting, simply pop the defrosting mat in the dishwasher or scrub in the sink using hot soapy water for a quick clean.

Important: For health and safety reasons, please ensure all food is suitably covered during defrosting, especially raw meat. Also, please ensure your thaw board is cleaned thoroughly in between uses, particularly when you are switching between defrosting raw and cooked foods.

Quick Thaw Defrost Tray

Does exactly what it says on the description. Replacement for an old one but much better and great with the edge corners. Clean, efficient and hygienic.

Quick Thaw Defrost Tray

Left a steak in its plastic (to avoid washing). Defrosted quickly and in much less time than leaving it in the open. A winner.
