With three growing kids I feel like I’m always at the grocery store buying more and more food to keep them full and happy. But if you saw my fridge you’d be surprised: lots of half-eaten fruits, wilted greens and veggies that are going rotten just because we forgot they were even there. Berry Breeze is a device that sits in your fridge and keeps your produce fresh longer and eliminates odor.
I received the Berry Breeze for review and set it up. It’s very simple: just take it out of the box, uncover the lid, pop in batteries and put the lid back on – voila! Berry Breeze is all set. At first you have to leave it overnight in the fridge because it needs to be in for 6-8 hours straight. Once it’s there there’s nothing else you need to do! Other than change batteries every 3-4 months, just leave it in the fridge at the top shelf and let it do the work.
Berry Breeze has patented technology that produces activated oxygen, which effectively fights microscopic germs, bacteria and mold. It does so by inhibiting ethylene gas, which is the main cause of food spoilage and decay. Berry Breeze can also preserve the nutritional benefits of the food as well as eliminate odor.
A few days after setting up Berry Breeze I was at the grocery and bought a bag of cut romaine lettuce. When I brought it home I noticed that the expiration date was sooner than I had liked and the lettuce itself was getting dark spots and not looking great. I realized I’d have to eat it soon or toss it in the garbage but after a few days I noticed that the lettuce’s look and texture did not change. I was expecting it to look worse but it looked the same and was edible. It really seems like magic because I am so used to everything rotting quickly in my fridge and here’s food that is destined to go bad quickly but somehow stays pretty fresh! I also noticed my pint of berries remained fresh even a few days after purchasing.
It’s also available at Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Amazon and more. It’s on sale for $39.98 with free shipping on Amazon.
