For those who love shopping, keeping up to date with innovative new products and trends is fun. Finding out what the most popular items are is much easier these days as they often go viral on social media. Buyers simply post a photo or video of a one-of-a-kind find, and before you know it, that item is sold out everywhere. Now a new obsessed kitchen product is making the rounds – and conveniently it’s on sale. Read on to find out why shoppers are calling this cooking tool “magic.”

Various products have been stealing the limelight on TikTok lately, including ones that are ideal for the spooky season. In August, shoppers at Michaels were particularly crazy about a new line of Halloween decorations. TikTok users documented trips to their local shops and featured items in Victorian Gothic style, including a bust of the writer and poet Edgar Alan Poe. However, many commenters noted that their store had already sold out of the one-of-a-kind collection well before October.
Similarly, a rug sold at TJ Maxx and Marshalls caused quite a stir and sold out fairly quickly online. The black and white mat is strewn with ghosts and was actually a fan favorite in 2021 as well.
But while you’ll probably only use this decoration in the fall, you might be tempted by a much more practical kitchen product that you can use all year round.
If you’ve ever forgotten to take meat out of the fridge to thaw before a meal, you’re in luck. The XWell Defrosting Tray is an aluminum defrosting tray that one TikToker says actually works.
In a video posted Sept. 7, @chum.bucket51 puts the tray to the test, calling it one of their “top five products to order on Amazon.” In the video, she shows frozen turkey in a plastic bag and explains that the tray defrosts it in minutes. The TikToker ends the clip and starts a new one after five minutes.
“It’s been five minutes, my turkey thawed,” she says. “I’m going to make a turkey burger for lunch. Definitely get one if you ever forget to take out the chicken before your mom gets home from work.”

The video made its way onto TikTok and received over 255,000 likes and 1,000 comments.
“I literally said out loud ‘nah uh’ then you proved me wrong,” one commenter wrote, while another explained that they are “definitely investing in this.”
Others joked that the tablet was “sorcery” and “witchcraft,” while one user wrote that the tablet really was “like magic.”
To sweeten the deal, this viral product is now available on Amazon for $16.95 compared to its normal price of $25. If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can also take advantage of two-day shipping.
While some TikTokers were intrigued by the swap bowl, some weren’t so easily won over. Various commenters noted that the thawed turkey @chum.bucket51 was “paper thin” and would have defrosted quickly anyway.
“I bought this months ago thinking it would be awesome,” reads one comment. “Used once and now it’s in the cupboard. Something this super thin would work, but everything else still took forever.”
Additionally, many found that a standard aluminum pan can do the same thing as a quartz or granite countertop — and it may be “safer” to use the standard bowl of cold water to avoid bacterial growth. According to FoodSafety.gov, which is overseen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the safest way to thaw meat is to store it in the refrigerator, and officials don’t recommend thawing it on the counter.
