About

Hurricane Fruit Washer

A 96 oz. container that fits on your Vitamix or Blendtec machine to wash fruits and vegetables.

disclaimer:

  • not affiliated with Vitamix or Blendtec
  • Vitamix or Blendtec machine not included 
  • container in video is a prototype 
  • US patent pending (application no. 62386601120715)

Why You Need One

If you already own a Vitamix or Blendtec, why not use its 2-3 horsepower to power wash your fruits and vegetables?

Eat the veggies, not the dirt!

Fresh raw fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts are rich in nutrients and low in calories. They contain fiber, good fat, clean protein, minerals, phytochemical, and antioxidants (so that plants don't get cancer from the sun's UV rays). These nutrients are constructed in a way that our bodies can easily absorb (i.e. you can't eat a spoon to get iron). Why not eat more whole foods to feel healthier and more energetic, the foundation of our happiness?

How to Use

1. Place our container on your Vitamix or Blendtec machine.

2. Add fruits and vegetables, water, and baking soda.

3. Set power just as you would blend! 

Why We Need Your Support

We have already 3D-printed prototypes and discovered a few improvements that should be made. With $10,000, we can add these improvements to our final prototype and be ready for mass production.

If we can reach our stretch goal of $100,000, we will be able to deliver mass-produced, Vitamix-and-Blendtec-compatible containers to you. 

Risks and challenges

With two 3D-printed prototypes already built and tested, we already know how to get our container to function as expected. However there are still many aspects that can be improved. With $10,000, we can make the necessary adjustments.

The main challenge is to economically mass produce our container with good quality, food-safe material, which requires mold injection and assembly. We will update our backers as frequently as possible with any setbacks or challenges that we face, and continue to make improvements for a better container.
