I come from a long line of family cooks. My grandmother owed a restaurant, my mom was a cook there, and I love cooking. However, in my case, love did not translate to skill... at all. I have mastered the art of boiling over, burning, and all general cooking mishaps.
Along with the ruined food, I now have a collection of melted utensils, burnt hot-pads and burners that have had more food spilled on them than most kitchen floors - which means my house doesn't smell too great sometimes. Nothing can ruin an appetite like the odor of melted plastic, charred wicker, burnt popcorn, blackened garlic, I could go on for days!
Enter the VERSONEL PERSONAL MINI AIR PURIFIER PLUG-IN ROOM OZONATOR, seen here. No matter the odor, this little purifier can neutralize the smell in a matter of minutes. I instantly starting using it because that was the night I forgot that my stove was on, and left my wicker hot-pad on it. Thankfully no fires, but the smell was awful. So I plugged in my little Mini Air Purifier, and the smell immediately started to dissipate. I was impressed!
Now, like a lot of people, I totally ignored that this was also an ozone machine. For most people, that means nothing. For people who are sensitive to smells, allergens and air quality like me, please read this! It can make you nauseated and light headed if used for too long in a small space. For example, it works wonders in the bathroom, but don't close the door and leave it running overnight because you could be affected by it in the morning. Nothing dangerous - just a normal warning that goes on all ozone machines.
Still - this is a favorite of mine. I constantly turn it on in the morning after I burnt the toast and leave it run while I am at work. When I come home, there are no smells in my house - no toast, no trash, no bathroom, nothing. Its wonderful!
