ThawNet is a silicone mesh covering that will help you thaw various frozen foods in your sink without wasting water. It'll fit in nearly all sinks, regardless of their shape and size, and each one has suction cups on each corner that will help it stay in place. You can use it when you need to thaw out frozen meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and more, and it's large enough that you'll be able to fit a family-sized ham or turkey underneath.
The cost of ThawNet is $24.95 and the shipping is FREE!

Before you start using your ThawNet, you'll have to place the first frozen item or group of items that you want to thaw in the bottom of your sink. You should place them on top of the drain so that the water you add later won't end up running down the drain quickly. Alternatively, you could plug the drain with an ordinary plug—that'll work just as effectively.
Next, place your ThawNet mesh covering on top of the frozen food(s) and secure it by making sure its suction cups are sticking to the bottom of the sink. When you're putting the covering in place, try to make sure that the frozen food is as centered underneath it as possible.
Finally, fill your sink up with cold water so that it's almost full. After you do so, your food should begin to thaw and should thaw at a rate of approximately a half hour per pound. When it's done thawing, you can simply remove it from your sink and prepare it as usual, and store your ThawNet in a place of your choice.
Each of these food coverings is made of materials that aren't toxic to use around food. Plus, each one is completely free of the potentially harmful chemical compound BPA, which is commonly found in plastic products. While the ThawNet might look like it's made of plastic, it actually contains no plastic at all and is made from flexible silicone instead.
This apparatus is also dishwasher safe, so if it ever ends up with food residue on it that can't be rinsed off, you'll have the option of running it through a dishwasher.
Each ThawNet has been designed to resemble mesh fabric and contains small holes. As a result, you'll be able to look through these holes and see what's happening to your food at all times. This will help you determine if it has finished thawing out or not. Furthermore, the mesh's holes will allow the water in your sink to come in contact with your food, while a solid silicone covering would prevent most of the water from doing so.
If you thaw frozen foods in the microwave, the outside of each food item often gets hot and starts to cook, becoming a great breeding ground for bacteria, while the inside stays cold and frozen. However, if you use a ThawNet and your sink to thaw your food instead, the silicone covering will cause unheated water to be evenly dispersed to all areas of your food. Then the food will be safe from both uneven thawing and bacteria growth.
When you're done using this silicone covering, you can store it flat, but you'll also have the option of rolling it up so it'll take up less space. After it's been rolled up, it'll fit into virtually any kitchen drawer, and will fit inside nearly any backpack or handbag if you want to take it somewhere outside your home.
Due to the flexible nature of its silicone material, the ThawNet will fit in almost any sink of any shape. Not only will you be able to use it at home, but in sinks outside of your home, too, such as the one in your workplace's kitchen or the one at your summer cottage. It doesn't matter what the sink is made of, either—this covering will work just as nicely in a stainless steel sink as it does in a glass or plastic one.
This silicone covering will be in one complete piece when it arrives, so you won't have to assemble a single thing before you start using it. Even the suction cups that you'll find on the corner of each one will already be attached.
Some people may try to thaw frozen food by continuously running hot or cold water over it in their sink, but this is an ineffective strategy. It'll waste your water over time, and besides, you'll have to stand there while the water runs. Fortunately, when you place a ThawNet over your frozen food, you'll be able to fill up your sink with water once and leave it for a half hour or more. That means not as much water that could be used for something else will end up running down your drain.
Aside from being a frozen food covering, this silicone apparatus has an alternative use. If you have difficulty opening lids, or your hands start to hurt while you do so, you can place the covering over any lid before you try to twist it off. The silicone covering will make it come off more smoothly without causing you any pain.
If you've got a really tiny sink, there's a chance you might want to cut your ThawNet down to a smaller size, but you won't be able to do this without ruining the apparatus. If you were to cut it down, you'd cut off the holes that hold the suction cups and wouldn't be able to use them any longer. Therefore, you'll have to keep on bending and folding your device in order to fit it into a small sink.
As your frozen food covering ages, the suction cups on the corners of each one may begin to lose their ability to cling to things, especially when they're exposed to water. You may be able to replace the cups, but it might be difficult to find new cups of the proper size and shape to add to your device.
While it's acceptable to fill your sink just once with water when you're using this covering to help you thaw food, you'll get better results if you change the water every half hour. If you decide to leave the same water in your sink for several hours with frozen food, this water may start to become warm and therefore less able to fight against the growth of bacteria.
