Best Used By. We’re kind of confused by this one. So on the one hand it’s a free, clever and rather useful online application to let you keep track of the Best By dates on your groceries, which is a neat alternative to the DaysAgo digital day counter gadget. On the other hand we’re wondering just how many people will bother to keep updating a computerised grocery list every time they do a shop? Anyhoo, for those who do keep up, the service will automatically email you a few days before the Use By date arrives, so you can stuff your face with the goodies just in time.
If the food spoiled before you could eat it, click the “This food spoiled” icon: . (This information will be used in the future to suggest “Use by” dates for common foods, based on how long similar foods took to spoil.) If you ate the food and then replaced it, click the “Restock this food” icon: . This will create a new food item with the same number of days before the “Use by” date as the one you ate.
