Thank you Laura for sharing this website with EcoDeaf.


  1. Thanks, Laura for the App! I just bought this app and wonder if theres another one that tells me which food is still good if the power goes out? How long do eggs last, etc..

  2. Thanks for your comment! I'm glad you like the App, P! That's a really good question but I'm not aware right now of an application for what you mention. I'll keep you posted if I happen to come across it. Cheers!

  3. That will be interesting to know which food is still good and for how long after the power goes out. It is common for Buffalo to have black outs due to ice storms.
    P, if the power goes out, you might want to somehow have a back up charger ready for your iPhone. Unfortunately the iPhone battery do not last too long.

  4. Oh, and I wanted to mention something about this application: I do not totally agree with some of its answers and I'll take them as an approximate rule instead of as a rule of thumb. In my experience, apples last for a long time in the pantry, for instance. Mushrooms also last a bit more than just 3-5 days.
