We’ve all done it before: planned on cooking some delicious chicken or steak for dinner, but forgotten to take the meat out of the freezer and defrost it until the last minute. As a result, we’re left scrambling to thaw our cuts, sticking them in hot water or into the microwave, creating a lot more hassle than it’s worth. Thank heavens for the Yeti Touch Fast Defroster.

This awesome little tray can defrost rock-hard frozen meats – beef, chicken, fish, you name it – in as little as 20 minutes. It’s a casted, Aero-grade aluminum board with an enamel coating – totally food-safe and inert, as far as surfaces go – that works by “pulling the chill away,” speeding up defrost times exponentially. There is no heat, which means no batteries, no power source, and no risks towards food safety; Salmonella and E. Coli have nothing to thrive on, so you can grill up with peace of mind.

All you have to do is completely unwrap your choice of meat, and place it on the Yeti Touch. It will defrost evenly and thoroughly. No more sticking in the microwave, where part of the meat starts cooking, or running it under hot water, which ruins the texture and washes away some of the flavor. There are drip holes in the corners, so juices and water just run into the secure drip tray until you’re ready to empty it; goodbye messes. And when the food is thoroughly thawed, the board doubles as a cutting board – just slice and dice to you heart’s content.

Whether you cook regularly, or just enough to forget about defrosting your meat regularly, the Yeti Touch makes an excellent addition to your kitchen. No more putting food out the night before and forgetting about it, or rushing to defrost a huge block of frozen chicken at the last moment. It’s only available via Kickstarter right now, where you can snag an early bird special for as little as $34.
