CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hurricane Fruit Washer, LLC launched a Kickstarter campaign so that Vitamix® and Blendtec® owners can soon wash fruits and vegetables by placing the Hurricane Washer container onto their Vitamix or Blendtec machine. “A Vitamix or Blendtec contains 2-3 horsepower. Now imagine using this power that’s readily available on your kitchen countertop to power-wash all your greens,” said founder Melody Lo.
The design includes a patent-pending (application no. 62386601120715), 96 oz container that holds most fruits and vegetables. Hurricane Fruit Washer, LLC, inspired by the rise of the whole foods diet and the Local Food Movement, encourages people to not only eat more whole foods for health reasons, but also purchase produce at local farmer’s markets, where the fruits and vegetables have a distinct, delicious flavor that cannot be replicated by supermarket produce. Lo said, “Whole foods are full of nutrients that are packaged in a way our bodies know how to easily absorb. By simplifying the washing process into a convenient and efficient solution, more people will reach for the healthy option first.” You can fund Hurricane Fruit Washer’s Kickstarter campaign here.
