If you ever went on a vacation or a short weekend trip leaving food your freezer and plan to consume it after coming back, then you need to think twice.

Today we are going to share with you a simple trick that will tell you if it is safe to consume the food that you left inside your freezer.

You might wonder why this is so important? 

Well, what if your power went off when you were away and you never get to know about it.

However, this can cause your food to get damaged because it will defrost and freeze back. 

However, this may prove harmful to your food stored inside your freeze.

The food stored inside your freezer will defrost and deteriorate.

After power comes back the thawed food will freeze again and you will never get to know how long it was left thawed.

In fact the food that seems perfectly fine to the naked eye may have grown harmful bacterias.


Next time you leave the home for a long period of time, place a cup of water in the freezer overnight. Once the water has frozen over, place a penny on top and pack your bags!

When you come home, check on the cup -

  • If you see the coin is exactly over the ice just the way you kept, then the food in your freezer should be fine. The same goes for the food in your refrigerator!
  • On the other hand, if the penny is at the bottom of the cup, then the ice (and food) has had the time to completely thaw. This is a sign that you should clear your freezer.
  • Lastly, if the penny is the middle of the ice, then your freezer was only out of order for a short period of time. This means that most of the food should still be safe to eat.

In any case, if you’re not sure whether food is still edible, throw it out.

This tip is great for vacations, evacuations, and even day-to-day life. After all, if you don’t check your freezer often, it’s impossible to know how safe your food really is.
