- Gourmet Defroster - Auqa Gadget - Innovative Marine (DISCONTINUED)
Do you ever feed your tank and watch half the food float right down the overflow?
Do you ever thaw frozen foods just to forget about them?
Then you are in need of the AUQA Gadget Gourmet Defroster.
Just drop a cube and go, and let this 3-in-1, magnet-mounted defroster thaw, separate, and dispense frozen food all by itself! Its open/close pivoting design gives you an adjustable release setting that allows for portion control and the ability to regulate the amount of food that is released into your tank. This keeps more food in their mouths, and less in your filter.
- Reef safe magnetic mounting
- Reduces wasted food
- Use with any type or brand of fish food
- Adjustable settings for food separation and dispersion
- Easy to Clean
Dimensions - 4" H x 2.5" Diameter
Max Glass Thickness - 1/2"
Not the best By Byton on 1/28/2020Byton wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWith the right food maybe it would work. But it didnt allow anything to fall through the holes between the 2 inserts. So the food just stayed in the top part not allowing the flow of the water to help move the food around to break it up while the frozen cube thawed.
Magnets rust out in only a few months By Don on 10/26/2019Don wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMagnets started to corrode and rust within a few months. Made of very weak, thin, lowest-grade dollar store like plastic. Don't waste your money on this product!
The magnet rusts By Paolo on 1/6/2019Paolo wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis thing broke on me twice. I don't use it all the times and i don't keep it inside my tank. After I purchased the magnet rusted (its not sealed properly)after only a few months. Innovative Marine replaced free of charge, but i was skeptical because the material is cheap. After a few months, the magnet was rusted again. I am not going to bother getting exchanged because i won't use it anymore.
Gourmet defroster By Wendell on 12/31/2018Wendell wouldn't recommend this product to a friendVery disappointing
Great idea, poor quality By Chris on 10/15/2018Chris wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAs others have experienced the magnet adhesive brakes and magnet comes loose.
only lasted a couple of months, disappointing.
Seems to work well By Richard on 8/26/2018Richard would recommend this product to a friendIt seems to be doing its job. Have read comments on the plastic and magnet issues. I believe the manufacture can try to implement something similar to the magnet system on the powerheads.
not worth it By david on 6/18/2018david wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLooks nice, but that's about it. Plastic is weak, too thin, or a low grade, whatever it is, it will break around the magnet eventually. Will be a toss up on if magnets rust through first or plastic breaks.
I contacted IM directly about a replacement after it broke, and they told me where i can buy another one. Probably last product i buy from them
Needs work By Derrick on 4/1/2018Derrick would recommend this product to a friendGreat item but as others have said magnets they used junk the plastic that holds them in on mine was cracked when I got it but still works great with fixing that part
Works as advertized, so far By Thom on 3/30/2018Thom would recommend this product to a friendWorks as advertised. So far seems to stay put, distribute the thawed food and be fine. Had it in the tank about a week or so. Don't mind the high price too much haha , but wish had found it on sale.
Update on this product By richard on 2/26/2018richard would recommend this product to a friendI purchased this a few months ago no issues but I was concerned the company was getting a bad wrap because of the magnets. So I spoke with a rep all magnets that are defective even if out of warranty they will replace they have since changed the material they use to seal the magnet and recommend when removed from the tank put card board between the two magnets because it damages the material and could possibly make it leak .. But so far so good and I have both feeders ..
Great idea, poor planning By Regany on 2/25/2018Regany wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIs a neat concept and if you change the flaws will be a great product. Bad magnets, and horrible design for tanks with eurobrace.
Junk magnet seals By JOE on 1/30/2018JOE wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMagnet and and seals are junk the magnet housing gave out and well erosion from it happend, I’ll see what icp readings I get
I have a rimmed tank and the rim is 5/8 inch and the water line is 3/4 inches below the water line. Will this fit in my tank?
Can you tell me the GourmetDefroster's dimensions? Many thanks!
The height is 4", the diameter of the defroster is 2.5" and the diameter with the small magnetic stand will increase the size to 3".
Up to what size glass will this work with?
This defroster will work well on even the largest tanks, Innovative Marine has recommended its use on tanks at least up to 15 mm or .59"
Would it be a problem to leave this in the tank?
We leave ours in the tank all the time! We do take it out and clean it quite often as a result. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
