There's a natural and effective way to sanitize food
without using any toxic chemicals. This Food Sanitizer uses ozone to kill pathogens and insects that are found on many fruits and vegetables.
Treating food with ozone is a very simple and easy way to ensure food safety. Ozone (O3) is a form of very reactive oxygen - it kills bacteria by oxidizing them and the only byproducts are water and breathable oxygen. Ozone is approved by the Federal Drug Administration as a proper Antimicrobial agent, and it's 300 to 2000 times more effective that Chlorine
at killing microbes. Eliminate up to 99% of all gut churning bugs, including E.Coli, Salmonella, Listeria Giardia, fungi, and other sources of foodborne illnesses.
In addition to killing bacteria, treating food with ozone also breaks down harmful chemicals. Ozone degrades many pesticides and chemical fertilizers into inert components. Many pesticides are suspected carcinogens, so it's important to minimize your exposure. Chemical fertilizers can also cause serious allergic reactions, but not if they're broken down to their neutral, harmless ingredients.
Compare ozone with chlorine. Chlorine is used in almost every water sanitation plant, and it is very effective at killing waterborne illnesses and fungus. However, chlorine isn't very effective at denaturing pesticides and it can produce carcinogenic halides. Chlorine isn't very good for the environment either. Producing chlorine is a toxic process, and its byproducts cause secondary pollution.
Ozone, on the other hand, can be made without any mining or refining - it's produced by passing electricity through water. After ozone does its job disinfecting food, it will naturally revert to oxygen without producing any toxic residue. Ozone is the environmentally friendly way to sanitize food.Technical Details

Taste more flavor, and less dirt.
Shouldn't fresh groceries taste fresh? Ozone treatments also help remove dirt from hard to scrub areas and give food a fresher, crisper taste.
The food sanitizer is easy to fill, operate, and empty using just one hand. It has a turn knob timer, and can be set from 1-15 minutes. 5 minutes is the recommended time for most produce, but some produce with high levels of pesticides or contamination should be washed for longer. Grapes, cherries, strawberries, spinach, apples, lettuce, oranges, potatoes, and cucumbers are a few items that benefit from extra wash time.
Use the Ozone Sanitizer to clean your groceries, and it will boost their shelf-life by up to 25%. The CuisineClean does this by killing the bacteria found on the outside skin of produce. This bacteria is what causes pears to soften, apples to turn colors, and potatoes to rot. By killing off this bacteria, you can not only make fewer trips to the grocery store, but you can reduce wastage and cut the grocery bill too!
The Ozone Sanitizer exposes fruits and vegetables to ozone in two ways. First, it produces an ozone rich dunk for immersing the food in. Second, the Cuisine Clean uses a Patented Vortex Washing Spray to spin wash the food from every angle without bruising, tearing, or otherwise damaging the produce. The Natural Food Sanitizer reduces the amount of time and effort involved in hand cleaning fruits, and it is more effective.Please note
: When using the Sanitizer, do not use water over 80° F. Ozone treatments with colder water are more effective in sanitizing food.
