[Giveaway] Hyflux DEW Fruit & Vegetable Washer D818 is the new jacuzzi for fruit & vegetable

UPDATED on 25 Nov 2014 – The Winner has been chosen. Congratulations to Wendy for her comment:

“I like to win this! My eczema girl has recently been on plant based diet in hope to heal her eczema and I have been looking at how best to wash the vegetables and fruits as consuming only organic food is too expensive for my family of 3 kids and 3 adults. I believe this product will aid in her recovery by giving her cleaner food and hence lesser toxin to her body. Not only her, the whole family will definitely benefit from this product! Thank you!”

So, you’re cutting back on meat and eating more fruits and vegetables in hopes of doing your part for the environment and becoming healthier. But did you know that much of our produce is contaminated with hazardous pesticides? Leafy veg, bell peppers and blueberries are some candidates which have made their way into the Environmental Working Group‘s Dirty Dozen list unveiled this year.

It isn’t quite possible to always buy organic produce. Cost aside, it simply isn’t always available. So, I was very happy when Hyflux approached us to review their DEW Fruit and Vegetable Washer D818.

This ingenious contraption has changed the way I wash my fruit and veg!

What it is and its benefits:

A 4L capacity basin-like device which washes fruit and veg using ozone technology.

The washer can destroy up to 99% of the microorganisms found on produce; has more than 99% antimicrobial effectiveness and been tested by TUV SUD. You just need tap water and electricity. No chemicals are required and no residue is left behind on the produce that you wash.

Fruit and veg emerge from their jacuzzi squeaky clean and will store for longer too!

How it works:

Ozone is a strong oxidising agent which kills microorganisms by breaking down their cell wall. It’s widely used to disinfect food and to sterilise surfaces.

A small bag containing charcoal is placed inside a cavity on top of the lid to absorb the smell of ozone.

How to use:

1. Before using the washer for the first time, fill it up with tap water to the 4L mark (that’s the maximum capacity) and press the switch twice. The indicator light will turn red and the washer will run for 15 minutes. Pour away all of the water when it’s done.

2. To wash fruit/veg, just put them inside the washer and fill it up with just enough water. Do not exceed the 4L mark. Do not wet the electrical circuits.

3. Plug your device in. There are two modes: 1) To wash fruits, run the 10-minute cycle by pressing the switch once. 2) To wash leafy veg, run the 15-minute cycle by pressing the switch twice. The device will stop once the cycle ends. Disconnect the device.

4. Rinse the fruit/veg once more before consuming/cooking. Air-dry the Dew Washer before storing.

At first I did think that the Dew Fruit & Vegetable Washer was a tad bulky for my teeny tiny kitchen but I have decided that I cannot do without it after one use. I especially like how clean my leafy veg get after a bath in this mini-jacuzzi. You know how annoying it is to have to wash leafy veg like spinach and xiao bai cai multiple times to get rid of all the sand particles and the soapy residue on the inside of the stems? With this washer, the veg is ready for my wok or salad bowl with just one bath and one rinse. I save water and I spare the nutrients from being scrubbed out from my veg. Best of all – NO MORE PESTICIDES!!!

    I want to win this so I don’t have to painstakingly slice off lemon skin before I can add lemon slices to my water (I slice the skin off to get rid of any pesticides) – it leaves my fingers smelling of lemon. (@_@) *Adding lemon juice to water is great as it becomes alkaline after entering our body, which is great for overall health – one of the benefits is reduced bloating! 😀

    This looks really great, Rachel! My wife and I would love to win a Hyflux DEW Washer, since we are starting a family and the importance of health and overall well-being has never been more important to us than now! It really helps as we are more focused on the safety of the produce we (and our babies) consume, especially since the use of pesticides is so pervasive in our society.

    Thanks for introducing us to great devices such as this! They are really helpful! 🙂

    This is a great device! Have been finding ways to rid the pesticide on our veggies and fruits for the importance of our health, therefore tried some brand’s drops to rid the pesticide, but after all they are chemicals too. This device will be great to have without us using the any chemical as we often eat veggies and fruit! Its so natural and fantastic for our family and babies!

    I had been juicing regularly and would love to use organic as much as possible to avoid pesticide BUT the organic fruits and veggies are very expensive ;-(
    I usually peel the fruits and use vegetable wash for the veggies.
    It would be awesome if i will win this hyflux washer as i can maximize my time by avoiding the “peeling” of fruits and will save me $$ in buying ordinary fruits instead of organic products. I will definitely be using this everyday. Now, i can give my kids juice free from pesticide with minimal cost;-))

    With three young children, I would like to provide them with the best pesticide-free food possible, so they do not fall sick easily. I have been searching for the best alternative to organic food, but I’m still not convinced that it can do the job properly.after reading your review, I believe I have found one!

    I love to eat kang kong and this piece of niffy kitchen device will help me to wash all the sand particles away. I hate it when I bite into a piece of sand after washing the kang kong for at least 3 times! Plus this device washes pesticide off my fruits and vegetables, and this means having a peace of mind when feeding these food to my infant.

    My favourite vegetable is kang kong but it usually has a sandy texture to it. With the Hyflux DEW Fruit & Vegetable Washer, I can finally enjoy clean and fresh fruits & vegetables.

    I shudder to think about all the water that I have unnecessarily wasted in the preparation of leafy greens. Cleaning them under a running tap always uses up too much water because all the soapy residue seems to collect in the darndest corners. Scrubbing them in a container never seemed to the best solution either because all the chemicals would be in the pool of water, won’t they? I think this is a really great – not to mention cool – addition to the kitchen. I am looking forward to be impressed by how this appliance works!

    As a busy working mother of 2 kids, the daily rush to prepare their snacks, meals has been aad scramble. Sometimes, im so drained by it. I hope by winning this, I could spend the time on doing other household chores instead of spending the time, washing the fruits and vegetables.
    Multitasking has been a huge part of my life and any automation or help like this hyflux DEW washer would be simply a godsent!
