Manufacturer of small household appliances Galanz America taps into consumers’ desire for cleaner air by venturing into the category of air purifiers.
The Ridgefield Park, NJ-based company, which makes microwaves, refrigerators and other major appliances as well as small kitchen appliances like blenders, air fryers, bread makers and pressure cookers, has introduces two desktop units that it claims remove allergens, pet dander and other impurities from the air.
The desktop air purifier is a portable unit that can cover up to 175.2 square feet and features 360-layer filtration, three fan speeds, and an aroma pad to add essential oils. It retails for $79.99.
The Air Purifier Pro captures 99.9% of large and fine airborne particles, according to Galanz, and is ideal for larger spaces like a large living room, dining room, kitchen, or even a studio up to at 875 square feet. Like its smaller cousin, it has 360-layer filtration and three fan speeds, plus timer settings, Wi-Fi connectivity and air quality alerts. It retails for $249.99.
The products are expected to hit shelves in early July.
Galanz plans to develop additional home products that target health and wellness, according to a statement.
