The two best ways to thaw a turkey

If you prefer, you can thaw your Exceldor Freezer to Oven turkey before cooking.

IN THE FRIDGE

  1. This is the most recommended method. Thawing your turkey in the fridge keeps it cold until it is thoroughly defrosted.
  2. Leave turkey in the original packaging.
  3. Place it on a platter to catch any juices and put it in the fridge.
  4. Allow at least 1 day per 2 kg (4.4 lb.).

IN COLD WATER

  1. We recommend thawing your turkey in the fridge but to speed things up, you can use the cold-water method.
  2. Leave turkey in its original packaging and place it breast down in a container.
  3. Cover with cold water.
  4. Change the water every 30 minutes so the surface stays cold.
