Klaren / home appliance(Product)


Klaren is a kitchen electrical appliance which combined a food waste dryer and a insect trap. It lures harmful insects around the house with the lure light, and sucks them into the unit with a fan. Then, the heat from drying the food waste exterminates the insects.

Three-layered filters which installed in lower part prevent the stink from the food waste. The circulation of the heated wind is produced with two ventilation fans. The infrared sensor installed in the top side of the unit automatically opens and closes the slot for handy usage with wet hands. The separable structure of the unit makes discharging and internal cleaning more easy.
