Ozone isn’t just a term for the stuff in the sky that’s destroyed by aerosol cans. When working in tandem with water, ozone is a strong antibacterial agent that oxidizes microorganisms. And now this wonder water is available in the kitchen thanks to the new Aqualogic ozone faucet by Lenova.
The faucet has a thin generator that produces ozone water, which can be used to clean hands, foods, and surfaces without chemicals and residues. And the water doesn’t even need to be hot. The odor-free ozone water kills food pathogens such as Salmonella, E-coli, and pesticides on fresh produce, and the water has been measured to be 100 times stronger than chlorine while killing bacteria 3,100 times faster.
“The potential uses and health benefits are endless, from sanitizing cooking utensils and cutting boards to disinfecting baby toys and binkies,” Jay Beaumont, national sales and marketing manager of Lenova, said in a statement. “Ozone water can extend the shelf life of food, remove odors, and increase the level of protection from food-borne illnesses.”
The faucet has a sleek, simple design, and comes in either polished chrome or brushed nickel. It’s the only ozone faucet tested and certified by the FDA, the company claims.
