How does the Fridge Fresh unit work?
The science is complex, but the concept is simple. The Fridge Fresh unit uses a superior patented technology to convert the oxygen inside your fridge into O3, pure activated oxygen, to create an ideal environment where produce stays fresh up to 3 times longer. Common microorganisms found on the surface of fruits and vegetables and within your fridge can trigger natural foods to decay and spoil prematurely. The timed release of O3 zaps these microorganisms to slow down the decomposition process. At the same time, O3 also has the power to neutralize ethylene gas to delay ripening. That’s how Fridge Fresh technology extends the life span of fresh fruits and vegetables and helps reduce household food waste.
You won’t have to worry about outlets and extension cords when you use the Fridge Fresh refrigerator appliance . All the unit requires is a fresh set of batteries, and since the power drain is so low, those batteries will last on average 3-6 months before they need to be replaced. We are supporters of environmental stewardship, after all, and being energy efficient is a big part of that. There are also no filters or absorption packs to clean or replace, so you don’t have to worry about maintaining your Fridge Fresh. It does all the work for you.
You’ll even save fuel, because you’ll make fewer trips back and forth to the grocery store, and you’ll indirectly help stores do the same. After all, when people waste less food, stores don’t need to restock quite so often.
Is the Fridge Fresh unit proven to work?
YES! We believe strongly in the powers of our Fridge Fresh device, but our business doesn’t stand on belief alone. Research shows proof and performance for our Fridge Fresh device. In fact, an independent study conducted by R&D Enterprises proved that our product is “very effective” at eliminating strong food odors and successfully keeps food fresh longer, saving fresh food from spoiling too soon. You can learn more about our research by visiting our technology page.
Is the Fridge Fresh unit safe?
YES, the Fridge Fresh unit is perfectly safe for use inside a household refrigerator as directed. O3 has been used for over 100 years to purify air and water in many important applications. In June of 2001, the FDA approved ozone for use as an antimicrobial agent for direct contact with foods, food storage and processing. O3, or ozone, naturally converts back to regular oxygen after 20-30 minutes. The patented design of the Fridge Fresh unit includes a smart timing sequence to ensure that O3 does not accumulate or rise to unsafe levels at any time inside the refrigerator.
How is Fridge Fresh different from other products on the market?
Other products on the market today claim to keep food fresh by absorbing ethylene gas, a natural plant hormone that causes fruits and vegetables to ripen quickly. But the truth is, there is a lot more to keeping food fresh than that! Here are 4 reasons why the Fridge Fresh unit is better than all the rest:
ONE COMPLETE SOLUTION
Fridge Fresh technology is a superior solution because it addresses both fundamental issues that trigger fruits and vegetables to spoil too soon. In addition to neutralizing ethylene gas, the Fridge Fresh unit uses patented technology to zap the common microorganisms found inside the refrigerator that trigger the decay of fresh fruits and vegetables. The timed release of O3 inactivates and/or delays the growth of many of these microorganisms, including bacteria that causes unpleasant fridge smells. The result – fruits and vegetables stay fresh much longer and the refrigerator smells fresh and clean.
WORKS FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
The Fridge Fresh unit works throughout the entire refrigerator. The Fridge Fresh unit fills your fridge with O3 from top to bottom, on the shelves or in the crisper drawer. You don’t have to worry about where inside the fridge you keep your produce. As long as it’s inside the fridge, the Fridge Fresh unit is working to keep it fresh longer for you.
NATURAL, SAFE, AND EFFECTIVE
The Fridge Fresh unit is a non-toxic alternative to products that use chemicals to rid your fridge of harmful pollutants and unwanted odors.
EASY AND CONVENIENT
The Fridge Fresh unit is convenient and hassle free. The device requires no disposable filters or absorption packs to replace. Just insert the 4 “D” size batteries, place the device on the top shelf of your refrigerator, and let the refrigerator magic begin. The Fridge Fresh unit even lets you know when it’s time to replace the batteries with a red light!
How big is the Fridge Fresh unit?
We have taken great efforts in our development to ensure the Fridge Fresh unit is compact enough to go unnoticed in the back of the refrigerator. Our clever design is small enough that it won’t take up too much precious refrigerator space, yet powerful enough to be extremely effective in removing the harmful elements that trigger foods to spoil and cause unpleasant fridge odors. Our customers tell us that the Fridge Fresh unit creates more space inside their fridge because they no longer need bulky food storage containers or specialty bags to keep food fresh. The exact dimensions of the Fridge Fresh unit measure 5w x 2.5d x 5.2h inches, and it weighs less than 1 pound.

Where should I place my Fridge Fresh unit inside the refrigerator?
We recommend you place your Fridge Fresh on the top shelf. Anywhere on the top shelf will do, even if it’s buried way in the back. Most refrigerators have a fan near the top of the refrigerator, so this placement ensures the activated oxygen will circulate most efficiently from top to bottom inside your refrigerator.
How do I store my Leafy Greens?
You’ve probably noticed that most grocery stores have misters that “rain” on the high moisture vegetables periodically to keep them watered. That’s because leafy greens and delicate vegetables wilt because of a loss of moisture. Air in your refrigerator tends to be very dry, therefore delicate ingredients that require more moisture like Kale, Spinach, or Lettuce are best stored in a crisper drawer because the contained space offers a little more humidity.
Generally, the best way to store fresh produce is just how you would find it at the farmer’s market or the grocery store, outside of plastic bags. However, LEAFY GREENS ARE THE EXCEPTION. Leafy greens can benefit from being stored in an open plastic bag inside the crisper drawer. Be sure to line the inside of the plastic bag with a dry paper towel before adding the greens. The dry paper towel will absorb excess moisture that can cause the greens to break down.
If your refrigerator is not equipped with a crisper drawer or vegetable bin, or if you prefer to store your fresh ingredients on the shelves for easy access, there are two simple ways to add extra hydration, 1. place a damp paper towel over the leafy greens to add some extra moisture, or 2. keep a basic spray bottle filled with water in or near your fridge and use it every few days to mist inside of your refrigerator.
If you like to use storage containers to organize your fridge, we recommend keeping the lids off to allow the activated oxygen to easily reach the surfaces of all your fruits and vegetables.
Do I keep my fresh produce in bags?
When you have a Fridge Fresh unit at work inside of your refrigerator, it’s best to remove your fruits and vegetables from the plastic bags you bring them home in. That’s because ethylene gas and microorganisms can build up inside plastic bags or closed containers. Remember, Fridge Fresh technology works best when the O3 can easily reach the surface of all fruits and vegetables. Fresh produce will last the longest when stored the same way you find them at your local farmers market or grocery store, outside of the bags.
Fridge Fresh technology greatly reduces the number of plastic wraps, disposable bags, and bulky food storage containers you’ll need to preserve your fresh produce. The Fridge Fresh unit offers a more effective, convenient, and eco-friendly solution that keeps fruits and vegetables fresh longer in their natural state.
*However, leafy vegetables such as Kale, Spinach, and Lettuce are high moisture vegetables and therefore benefit more from humid environments such as your vegetable bin/crisper. If your refrigerator is not equipped with a vegetable bin/crisper, we suggest you place your leafy vegetables on a plate covered with a moist paper towel. You may also mist leafy greens with basic spray bottle filled with water to add extra moisture as needed. Think of the misters in the produce department at your local grocery store. Same idea!
Will the Fridge Fresh unit work on my produce when stored in their bins?
YES, the crisper bins and drawers in your refrigerator are not air tight or sealed, therefore the molecules of activated oxygen easily penetrate these spaces. The contents inside your crisper bins will benefit from the powerful effects of activated oxygen, as long as they are not kept in plastic bags or containers that would inhibit the flow of air. For this reason, it’s best to store your produce in your refrigerator the same way you would find them at the grocery store or at your local produce stand.
How much longer will my food stay fresh when I use the Fridge Fresh unit?
Several factors determine how much longer your food will remain fresh, including the type of fruit or vegetable, the condition it was in when you purchased it, temperature and humidity. You can expect foods to stay fresh several days to several weeks longer. For example, delicate berries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries) may stay fresh 2-4 weeks. When purchased on the hard side, avocados can last a whole month in a refrigerator with a Fridge Fresh unit. For bananas, the peel may darken on the outside, but the inside of the banana will remain fresh for several weeks. But, these aren’t the only benefits you’ll enjoy. The Fridge Fresh unit also neutralizes unpleasant fridge odors while fighting refrigerator mold and bacteria. Those are results you can see – and smell – every day of the week.
The light on the front is blinking green, what does this mean?
The first time you pop the batteries into the chamber to activate your Fridge Fresh unit, the green light will come on and glow continuously for the first 60 minutes. After this first cycle is complete, the unit will kick into standby mode and you will see the green light blinking periodically. Standby mode saves your battery life while ensuring the optimum levels of ozone in your fridge. If at any time you have your refrigerator door open for an extended period of time (more than a couple minutes) its a good idea to re-set the automated timing sequence by taking the batteries out for just a minute and immediately putting them back in your unit. This will allow the 60-minute cycle to repeat and refresh the inside of your fridge.
How long will my Fridge Fresh unit last?
If our present experience is any indication, forever. Okay, we’re exaggerating of course, but we do have units at headquarters that are still going strong after five years of use, and they don’t show signs of tapping out any time soon. When you create a product that’s built around the laws of nature, it’s a product that’s built to last.
What size batteries are needed and how long will the batteries last?
The Fridge Fresh unit operates using 4 D size batteries. On average batteries will last 3-4 months, depending on the quality of batteries you purchase. The indicator light will glow red to alert you when the batteries are running low and it’s time to replace your batteries.
