It takes a fair while I think. Probably to be safe 4/5 hours and thats out of the fridge. It will give you a rough guide anyway. Someone else may be able to be a bit more of an exact answer. Hope it helps. I never seem to have much luck trying to defrost in the fridge with things, takes forever.

I would say 5 hours at room temp, or defrost in slightly warm water for 1 1/2 (have done this many times and still alive )

we take ours out at about 5.30pm to cook around 7.30pm, but have one of those little tray things that are meant to aid defrosting, personally I'm not sure they do - they always used to take about 2 hours before anyway.
