All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!
When I’ve had the unfortunate experience of having my freezer break on me, I’ve simply noticed the smell of rotting food and ice cube trays filled with water to tell me that such a tragedy has taken place. I was unaware that in addition to this effective method of identifying a broken freezer, I also could have had a device tell me the exact same thing! Introducing the Frozen Food Safety Monitor:
Yes, the Frozen Food Safety Monitor tells you when your freezer is no longer working based on a complicated series of colorful liquids. When the colorful liquids are in the bottom of the device and not the top of it, then your freezer is no longer working! So, in addition to having rotten food, you also have a monitor to tell you that your food is rotten — how about that! Rotten food and a monitor. Fantastic!
(Seriously, if the device could somehow make a beeping noise or posses some way to alert you before your food went bad, well, that might have some sort of a purpose. Would it really be all that difficult to fashion a sensor, alarm, and battery to this contraption to give it an alarm?? Sigh.)
Thanks to reader Bluenewts for introducing us to the gem.
