Which I regularly use to rapidly defrost stuff I plan to use in 30 minutes. not something that will be refrozen, plus time neccessary for a 60LBs block to be defrosted and monitored vs a pound of ground beef, or a few pork chops / chicken breasts /etc is vastly different.

on a serious note... I usually thaw "whatever" on a rack. Whether in the fridge or sink. This way there is almost same temperature all the way around. Yes, it is still wrapped.

Well, I'm glad it worked out for you Nova! What's for supper?
