ICEGONE is a defrosting tray that facilitates thawing meat and other foods at eight times the speed compared to thawing at simple room temperature. The ICEGONE is cut in a highly conductive aluminum body with sealed thermal liquid underneath that can store and release heat in an accelerated manner, while heat fins across the base speed up the rate of heat transfer with the ambient air. Basically, the frozen food on top of the tray gets more hot air exposure because of the thermal liquid and heat fins underneath, ramping up the defrosting process without exposing the meat to high levels of heat. According to the company, it should facilitate thawing at eight times the speed compared to simple room temperature exposure — all with no wires, batteries, or plugs required.
Because the ICEGONE does not expose the meat to actual heat, as it would defrosting in an oven or warm water, it will not impact the food’s flavor or nutrients whatsoever. The tray has a non-stick surface, so it should clean effortlessly with just a wipe down, making it highly convenient to have around — it is also dishwasher safe. The ICEGONE measures 13.6 x 8.5 x 0.4 inches, so it’s around the same size as a standard cutting board so it can be easily stored. ICEGONE is a Kickstarter project with a delivery date of July 2021.
Once you’ve thawed the meat, it’s time to grill! Check out IMBOLDN’s Grilling Essentials.
