Another way to keep food squeaky clean

The "Lotus Sanitizing System" is a relatively affordable gadget in this growing category.

It's already shaping up to be a banner day for the germaphobes here at Crave. Just after posting an item about the latest OCD vacuum cleaner , we came across another gadget to sanitize our food as well.

The "Lotus Sanitizing System" uses "super-oxygen" infused water to pulverize bacteria and other unsavory elements from pretty much whatever will fit in its "multi-purpose sanitizing bowl," according to Shiny Shiny. (You can watch a video of it in action here.)

Granted, it's not the first food sanitizer on the market--there are even gadgets out there designed to make meat squeaky clean. But at $170, it's far cheaper than other models we've seen. Besides, when it comes to ingestion (and digestion), the true germaphobe never skimps.
