Thaw food quickly without gimmicks

You can thaw frozen foods quickly with a heavy aluminum frying pan.  Fill the pan with hot water and wait a minute or two for the pan to warm. Pour out the water and set the frozen food in the pan. When the pan cools, repeat the heating process with hot water and turn the food over to thaw it from the other side. Repeat this process until the food is thawed. The method works just as well as those expensive thawing trays advertised on television.
