Simple Freezer logging device

Post by ChrisGreaves »

When you go on vacation, how do you know that your frozen meat hasn’t thawed during a power-cut while you were away?

You fill a tumbler with water and freeze it. At the same time you put a heavy brass nut in the freezer to chill.
Twenty-four hours later you place the brass nut atop the frozen water and catch the plane out of here.
If when you return the brass nut is still atop the ice, prepare dinner.
Else, think carefully.

Cheers
Chris

Seen this many years ago, but used a quarter instead of a nut.

My problem isn't knowing if something has thawed or not, it's my wife's assertion that "it will be alright" regardless... :hairout:

If your absence does not affect them, your presence didn't matter.

Speaking of heating up ...

I realised that with a quarter-turn of my head i could just check to see if the microwave oven showed the correct time. :doh:
