Some of my snakes won't touch the prey until it's stone cold (ie room temp). I've also read a few caresheets (ie, proexotics) that suggest that warming in hot water makes the prey less appetizing for the snake and that it should be thawed on a plate.

Personally I use the hot water method because I'm lazy, impatient, I don't wanna leave rodents out all afternoon (I have cats), and my boids seem to like it. I didn't discover the method, I just use it from thawing meat for personal cooking.
