Many people, including myself, take meat or leftovers out of the freezer each morning and leave them to defrost in the fridge to be cooked when they get home from work. The problem is that I am constantly looking for the right sized container, WITH a lid, and then I am still stuck with a chicken breast that has been sitting in its own defrosted runoff for hours. Slant changes that. A slanted design with built-in ridges allows runoff to drip to a collector throughout the day, all while keeping your food unexposed throughout the day.
But that's not the whole cooking process. I also wanted Slant to be used for its full potential. Slant doubles as a cutting board, to slice up your perfectly-defrosted foods right on the surface. Slide items into the trough as you cut them and you have a freshly chopped meal assembled and ready to cook. Perfect for slicing a brisket too, so that you can collect those awesome juices and save them for later.
