The average family throws out more than $400 per year in spoiled fruits and vegetables. We can attest to that problem.

We’re always looking for a solution, and we may have found it with the MiniMate. A battery-operated appliance that sits in the fridge, it prevents the growth of mildew and kills the bacteria that cause food to spoil. And it claims to eliminate E. Coli and Salmonella, which can survive in the freezer as well as the fridge.

The MiniMate generates activated oxygen, or ozone. This technology is used as an antimicrobial agent in the fresh-cut produce industry. As it makes produce last longer, it saves money in spoilage. We think the MiniMate will earn back its $29.95 cost in just a few months.


And at 5″x5″x2.5″, it fits into our seriously packed refrigerator.

We conducted our test-run on the two items that we throw out the most: fresh raspberries and strawberries. Under our observation, the MiniMate doubled their shelf life in our fridge.
