F.I.R
LAMP(OPTION)
The emitted rays from the Far Infrared Lamp(F.I.R) prevents food from getting dry, and therfore prolongs the
foods freshness. It also increases the nucleic acid in the food which helps to protect the smell and taste of
the food.

F.I.R is ideal for

It is excellent for keeping fruit and vegetables fresh for
longer as the F.I.R prevents excessive fermentation and
over-ripening.
It is also useful for the
