    So…this can be used in the detection of taint?

    Whatever, $90 for that! I think I’ll stick with my nose too, its never failed me yet *knock wood*.

    @AlteredBeast: Children read this blog! :-P

    It seems fairly iffy. While it supposedly detects bacteria, it’d be nice to have an actual list of what it can detect, plus an accuracy rating for each.
    And a meter would be better, in place of the arbitrary good/ok/bad system.

    Meat tastes the best just before it slips over the line into rancid. Greenish steak? GIMME.
