Product Description

Tersano Lotus Sanitizing System / 120- Tersano Lotus sanitizing system- A new, award-winning, chemical-free way to clean. The Lotus converts ordinary tap water into a powerful ozone cleaner. Ozone is amore powerful germ killer than bleach. And it canclean virtually any surface - countertops, walls,bathrooms, carpets. Ozone has been used for manyyears by water treatment plants, swimming pools and food processing plants. It has been recommendedby many leading universities as one of the safest, most powerful sanitizers. Ozonated water is as safe as ordinary tap water. Because it is made entirely from water and oxygen, ozone is the only cleaner with no fumes and no residue. So you can use it near food, pets and babies without fear. The Lotus Sanitizer will dramatically reduce your cleaning bill. Most households spend over $100 per year on cleaning supplies. With the Lotus you can make an unlimited supply of cleaner. Chemical cleaners use scents to cover up the foul smell. Lotus waterdissolves odor molecules - so it gets rid of odorsfor good. Try it on gym bags, trash cans, urine stains, shoes and sports gear. Use it on cutting boards, counter tops and baby toys. When it comes tofood, studies have shown that washing food with just water removes only a small percentage of bacteria and pesticides. The lotus removes over 99% ofbacteria and most residues. Using an FDA and USDA approved process, ozone is also recognized by leading universities and scientists as the most effective and safest way to remove contaminants from food. Organic foods often contain bacteria and farm residue from organic fertilizers like manure. Keep organics clean with the lotus. By eliminatingmold and bacteria, your berries and other delicate fruits will not spoil as quickly, actually, mostproduce will last up to four times as long. Withthe average family throwing out about $350 per year in spoiled fruits and vegetables, the lotus will pay for


The lotus system safely removes bacteria, viruses, and pesticides from food.

It also sanitizes children's toys, teethers, and pacifiers with ease.

Tap water treated with the lotus system cleans and sanitizes kitchens, bathrooms, and other high-risk surfaces and locations without harsh chemicals, fumes, or residue.
Live Chemical Free with the lotus Sanitizing System

Take a step towards healthier living! This amazing Sanitizing System from Tersano lets you turn on your faucet and treat your home to an effective sanitizer that safely wipes out germs, odors, stains, mold, mildew and pesticides -- all without chemicals.

When you use lotus, you turn ordinary tap water into the world's most powerful sanitizer in about two minutes, for a fraction of a penny. Studies have shown that ozone is 50-percent more powerful and more than 3,000 times faster acting on bacteria than chlorine -- at 100 times the strength. Water treated with this system will kill 99.9 percent of germs on any surface it contacts.

Use the lotus to clean countertops, appliances, floors, high chairs and other baby items, upholstery, windows, cutting boards, and any surface that attracts mold or mildew. Even carpet and laundry stains -- including red wine and pet stains -- are easy to remove, with no harsh fumes or residue. Lotus also eliminates germs and pesticides from your food. It even extends the shelf life of fruit and produce up to four times longer than if they've been rinsed with tap water.

The lotus system can even be used to freshen and deodorize pet areas, or other potentially smelly places.
How It Works

The system has two main purposes: (1). to disinfect surfaces and (2). to remove pesticides and kill germs on food. It does this using ordinary tap water.

The lotus patented Oxyshield technology infuses cold tap water with an extra oxygen atom, creating a natural sanitizer. By passing air through 4,500 volts of electricity, the lotus system splits oxygen molecules into atoms and forces this extra atom to combine and form super-oxygen, or ozone. The third oxygen atom becomes the sanitizing agent, a natural oxidant -- which kills bacteria and viruses, and neutralizes pesticides.

Using the lotus spray bottle, it takes about two to three minutes to turn tap water into antibacterial lotus water with 100-percent potential (this is indicated on the unit); and then it remains fully effective for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, the contents begin to revert to plain water. A countdown timer on the unit tells you when it's time to reload and recharge.

Once the tap water reaches its fully transformed potential (in about five minutes, if you’re using the bowl), maximum bacteria and pesticide reduction is achieved after two minutes of soaking. That same helpful countdown timer tells you when your food is completely sanitized and cleansed of pesticide residues.

The lotus Sanitizing System was recognized as one of the Best Inventions of 2006 by Time Magazine. It was also recognized by Donny Deutsch as The Big Idea of the Month.

I am not sure if I have received a "bad product" or most of the users are encountering similar problems.

The lotus sanitizing system represents the first time a product has been available that cleans and sanitizes without the need for toxic chemicals.
I called Tersano Customer "Service" and was immediately told in snippy tones "Your unit is out of warranty", as the warranty is only one year.

I first learned of the Tersano Sanitizer in the January 2008 issue of "Fine Cooking", in a review of this and other ozone-based cleaners by the respected scientist and author Robert Wolke. Since I eat a lot of raw fruit and salads I was interested because of all the news stories about contaminated produce (and in our industrialized food chain, a contaminated batch from one farm infects a huge amount of food). So intrigued but not in a rush to spend $150, I read thru all the posted reviews (and comments to reviews, since a company spokesman leaves comments - especially on negative reviews). So why am I adding another to the pile? There are a few things nobody else has mentioned that I think are worth knowing before buying this unit.

The most important thing, of course, is does it work? I'm not a biologist so I can't offer a professional opinion as to germ killing, but it clearly to me seems to be doing something plain water doesn't. For example, after a dinner with wine if the glasses dry out there is a red film left that water and even soap don't easily remove. But a spray of the Tersano-treated water and it dissolves away. It also seems to kill mold and dissolves grease splattered on the stove.

But you've read about cleaning elsewhere. Here are the new observations. First, if you're planning on using this, figure its going to take some extra time. For example, you come home with some fruit, some lettuce and salad fixings. The Tersano comes with a large bowl for cleaning food, but it might hold 6 or 7 apples. So wash those, then repeat with the next fruit, then the lettuce stuff. Each cycle takes 2-3 minutes to prepare the bowl water and then its supposed to sit for 2 more minutes, then drain/dry and put the items away.

I am a physician and a homemaker. I am always looking for safe, effective, easy ways to clean. This product has been the answer for me in the following ways:

1.) Washing fruits and vegetables. Now I am finally following Rachel Ray's advice to wash everything when I bring it home from the grocery store. I pile in as much as the bowl (included with the system) will hold and rinse it briefly under the faucet to remove loose dirt. Then I fill the bowl with cool tap water and place it on the base. As I write this, I am processing 5 avocados, 4 tomatoes, and 2 peaches in the bowl. The cleaning cycle takes about 4 minutes, then you leave the produce in the water for another two minutes. The base unit counts down the time so you know when you're done. Finally, I use the bowl's lid, which has a built-in strainer, to drain the bowl.

There are a number of advantages to this method of washing produce. For me, the most important one is that I know that the produce is truly clean when the final beeper goes off. In the past I was never sure when I could stop rinsing my produce. This method is also a time-saver, since I can wash quite a bit of produce in each batch, and I can do other things while it is processing. Washing the produce when I bring it home from the store also makes it last longer, because the bacteria which cause decay are destroyed. Additionally, when I drain the water from the bowl into my sink, the super-oxygenated water helps to sanitize the sink. Finally, I don't have to wash the bowl, because it is sanitized with each use.

2.) Sanitizing my kids' orthodontic retainers, and the family's various toothbrushes, nail clippers, nail files, etc. I use the bowl for this.

I read the review of Ed G of San Jose, California with interest. The reviewer is correct that ozone kills bacteria and can cause chemical reactions such as converting bromide to bromate, a potential carcinogen. However, the conversion of bromide to bromate is pH dependent, and also dependent on the amount of available ozone and bromide present in the water. I have personally tested the Lotus systems for bacterial killing, pesticide removal, bromate formation and ozone production. Analysis of pesticide removal and bromate formation was conducted by a private independent laboratory. Known amounts of bromide added to the water before Lotus treatment. Analytical analysis revealed little if any formation of bromate during the Lotus ozonation process and subsequent removal if present, of bromate through the filtration of the water. Moreover, the water after Lotus treatment was superior when compared to the water used before Lotus treatment.

...since there have been mixed experiences with this product, I waited until I had owned the sanitizer for a while before I wrote a review. I have had the system for 9 months now, and absolutely love it. There have only been 2 times where I have had an error (I believe it was an F1, though I can't remember exactly) that was due to the machine needing one more cycle to complete the sanitization (I was sanitizing store-bought apples at the time) - I emptied the bowl, filled it with fresh water, and the cycle completed itself. The vast majority of the time the machine completes its cycle the first time. The food feels and smells squeaky clean after the sanitizing process, and tastes terrific.

The spray bottle attachment has been a particularly pleasant surprise - I haven't need to use chemical cleaners at all. The super-oxygenated water simply dissolves dirt and grime on contact, and has removed spots in the carpet as well. It makes a good deodorizer for upholstery as well.

This is truly a terric product in so many ways - it's effective, safe, environmentally friendly and one of the most "important" appliances I own for my health. Highly recommended!
