Subject: [Histonet] Chilling trays

I went to eBay and found a set of three (total $12.00) stainless steel
"food prep" trays, roughly 9x5x2" (LxWxH). I fill them with DI water and
freeze them.   I also inherited a larger stainless steel container
that's 12.5x10.5x4.5" - same deal, DI water and freeze.   I face blocks,
put them on the ice and add a little DI water and soak for 10-15 minutes
- blocks cut like a dream! They stay frozen for a  l - o - n - g  time!
Try a local restaurant supply.
