Default Re: Thawing meat QUESTION

Large items I defrost in the refrigerator. Smaller ones I defrost using the cool water method. I don't use cold water because it takes too long. I've been doing this for years and never had a problem. Miniman is correct in that toxins produced by bacteria are the main problem. The bacteria will be killed by cooking but the toxins are not destroyed by heat.

I have a very heavy aluminum cookie sheet that acts like a heat sink when I put frozen things on it. The only problem is that I have to dig it out of the cabinet. Using the water method is much easier.
