A home kitchen has different issues compared to a professional kitchen. The home kitchen air purifier has to keep odors and particulate from the rest of the house out of the food you are preparing.
You don’t want pet dander in the air floating down onto your casserole. The cookery air filter needs to keep living room odors at bay. The mudroom should stay muddy, but the place where you cook should stay pristine. A True HEPA filter removes bacteria and viruses of sick children from the air.
Making candy or pickling vegetables can drive a person from the home. The final product of your culinary efforts will be enjoyed more if the preparations are not aggravating to the rest of your home and family. Food prep can cause allergens to be released into the air. The right air filter in the right air cleaner can lessen food allergy symptoms.
