Spoiler Alert

If you've ever discovered your freezer door partially open or come home after a power outage and wondered if the food in your freezer was still safe to eat, our Spoiler Alert is for you! Simply shake the Spoiler Alert and place it upside down in your freezer for 24-48 hours. Then turn it right side up and it's ready to go. If an event happens, the four different colored liquids inside the Spoiler Alert will tell you how many days you have to safely consume your frozen foods or whether you need to discard everything. For example, if the blue liquid is in the lower part, you have 14 days to eat your food. If the red is in the bottom, discard everything. It's incredibly easy to use and can be used over and over again.

Awesome I always wondered if my food was safe after coming home and seeing the clocks flashing. This tells me how warm it got in the freezer. I read the review about the blue liquid not freezing that simply means the freezer isn't below 0. Remember that the manufacturer is ultra conservative about the temperature. So no worries about the blue liquid. May 6, 2014
Can't even get it to freeze all the way I bought this to put in my freezer as I tend to travel and have had power outages (flashing clock when I've gotten home) while away. This looked promising. However, after a full 2 weeks in my freezer (temperature well below freezing) the blue section of this gadget won't freeze --- thus I will never know if my food is spoiled beyond 14 days. The instructions say that the whole block will freeze after 48 hours --- this simply is not the case. This makes the gadget somewhat unusable. Thus I cannot say I would recommend to others...

We have lost power a few times and often wondered if our freezer food was still good. We are hoping this item will help us make an informed decision. I'm sure its not perfect but it will allow us to know about how cold the freezer was and the likelihood of spoilage. It has not been put to use yet so I can give it 5 stars. January 17, 2014
