If you put the battery-powered BerryBreeze on the top shelf of your refrigerator, the manufacturer promises that it will keep your stored foods fresher for up to 2-3 times longer than normal.  The BerryBreeze “filters and cleans the air in your fridge. Using newly-patented technology, BerryBreeze fills your refrigerator with activated oxygen to neutralize bacteria, mold, and other harmful microbes. As a result, your food stays fresh for longer in your fridge, without the use of carcinogens, chemicals, or harsh cleaners.”  It promises to keep the fridge cleaner and fresher smelling, too.

It measures 5″ X 2.5″ x 5″ and uses 4 D-cell batteries.  It’s $49.98 with free shipping, directly from BerryBreeze.

    If “activated oxygen” (presumably ozone) will kill bacteria et al. it is presumably doing so via some sort of oxygenation reaction. Food and bacteria are indistinguishable organics at that level so the food would also be effected. Leftovers might be a sealed container but fruit and veggies would be damaged.

    But, what about the placebo effect?

      I would call it the sucker effect. I did not see any comparison studies or any other data to show that this thing works. If it really did work, BerryBreeze would have set up several refrigerators some with and some w/o the device. They then would have shown the produce to people who did not know which stuff came from which refrigerators. The then would have an ad headline saying “SCIENTIFIC TESTS PROVE etc.” The fact that they did not do this proves to me that the gadget is a useless piece of junk.

        We actually have an upcoming review of this device…

          Great. I would suggest a double blind test with 4 refrigerators: 2 with BerryBreeze, 2 without. Testers should not know which one is which.

        Hi Don,

        BerryBreeze does indeed work, and it’s entirely safe. In fact, BerryBreeze has worked with various scientists, doctors, etc. to conduct the research and prove its effectiveness. You can check out the results and findings here: http://www.sunfood.com/ebook/berry-breeze/Berry_Breeze_ScienceDoc.pdf

          If it does, then it is exactly what the world need to reduce food shortage. I have seen study saying that more than 50% of fresh fruits and vegetables are thrown out due to spoilage.

          Also, if it does, why is it not built into refrigerators?

          I am just a skeptic.
