Is it okay to thaw food by leaving the food out of the freezer?

Some people say yes and some say no. I do this about once a week.

Yes you can leave food out of the freezer, how else would it thaw out. You can use the microwave, place the food in a sink of water to thaw out, or just put it in the fridge.

Of course, as long as it is only for a few hours and not for several hours or overnight. It should only require a couple of hours anyway. Place the food to be thawed in a dry area at a normal room temperature and you should be able to begin cooking it soon. It's totally safe.

It is safe, as long as you take some basic precautions. Watch the food and make sure it does not get too warm. Also, cover it to avoid insects.
