The kitchen is now considered the hub of most family homes and as such, an awful lot of food graces the surfaces of oak kitchens.
Whilst many timbers – such as our bamboo and iroko worktops – are naturally hygienic and capable of resisting fast-breeding bacteria, it is difficult to create a completely germ free kitchen unless you are very diligent with cleaning.
February’s ‘Gadget of the Month’ is a steriliser and deodoriser that is designed for use in refrigerators, but can also be used in wooden kitchen cupboards, too. This particular steriliser claims to eliminate E.coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus, mould and unwanted odours. If used in a fridge, the steriliser should also make fresh produce such as meats, fruits and vegetables last significantly longer.
With a battery life of 2 – 3 months from 4 AA batteries, this particular steriliser from UV-C Products on Amazon will keep your fridge clean and fresh for a long time, and once turned on, can be largely forgotten about. It runs a cycle to help conserve battery life, and has easy one-touch controls to choose the operation mode. For just £16, this refrigerator steriliser and deodoriser is excellent value for money – especially when you consider how much money you might save on fresh produce if it lasts significantly longer.
