It's easy for me to tell how it smells. Trust me it smells like pigeon. I had an craft made up of flour. Once that was rotten, it started to smell. When ever I entered the room, I felt like a pigeon had been there already, but then I discovered that craft stank so bad, I had to take it out since it was the source.

Actually, it's a matter of physics. More heat = more energy = all actions and reactions happen more quickly. Freezing slows down but does not stop chemical processes. Those would not stop unless your freezer could chill things to absolute zero. If your food is in the refrigerator, processes take place in a matter of days, because the food is relatively ...

Most freezers are frost-free, which means that they occasionally cycle above freezing to prevent formation of frost on the walls of the freezer. This makes them easier to maintain but it shortens the storage longevity of the food. This makes products stored in them vulnerable to freezer burn, which is a loss of moisture. It can also cause ice and IQF ...

This is called waxy breakdown. It's a defect rather than a disease, so you don't have to worry about a microbe or parasite. My neighbors have used affected cloves and they're still alive, though I've never been able to make myself use them because of the texture.

There is no reason why this thing will extend shelf life with regard to food safety. It is by no means comparable to canning, where you first sterilize the food and then ensure that there is some vacuum in the jar, as a sign that the jar is not exchanging atmosphere with the outside environment (which would bring in contamination with new microbes). ...

It's true that keeping air away from most foods will increase their shelf-life, but so-called "vacuum" food containers can't possibly create a powerful enough vacuum to remove all the air. I would be suspicious of glowing reviews with wild claims of their effectiveness. For the purpose you described, I think you would be much better off using a good quality ...

Our schedules are often times unpredictable, and its hard to plan meals more than a day in advance. Does anyone else face a similar problem, and what have you come up with to solve it? I had similar issues due to a lifestyle that involved lots of commute (to work, to friends place) and friends that insisted I stay with them more than I stay at my ...
