  1. Your product boxes doesn’t say if i should thaw it in the refrigerator or if i should’nt. I think you guys should tell us on the boxes if we should or shouldn’t. But besides that, your productgs are very delicious.

    Slices or whole cake on plate(s), covered in refrigerator: 5 hours
    Microwave thawing is not recommended for Sara Lee® strawberry cheesecake

  3. On our Sara Lee cheesecake just purchased it states it will taste best if thawed in one of 2 ways but only give directions on how to thaw it using the microwaves. We also love Sara Lee but for the consumers this issue should be corrected.

  5. I have also purchased a Sara Lee cheesecake and the thaw directions also say to thaw in the microwave I had to get on the Internet to find out how long to thaw the whole cake without using the microwave.

  6. Hi Monica, thank you for reaching out and letting us know. The cheesecake will likely take a couple hours to thaw. If you have any further questions, please call our Consumer Affairs team at 1-800-323-7117. Thank you.

  7. It is now December of 2016 and I read comments above from 2011!! that the directions on how to thaw a whole cheese cake are not given. If they are now on the box I do not find them. I also had to go on line to find out how to thaw a whole cheese cake. (4-5 hours in the refrigerator is what I found and also found 2 hours with out location.) Why do you resist making the information available and obvious on the box? Great product but for goodness sakes Consumer Affairs team please listen to your customers.

  9. bought the cheese cake with strawberry today, in China! the thawing instructions are covered up with the “Chinese import label”?

  10. Hi Andrew, thanks for reaching out with this question. You’ll need to place individual slices or the whole cake on plate(s) and cover them before placing in the refrigerator. They’ll take about five hours to thaw in the refrigerator. Microwave thawing is not recommended for this product. Thank you!
