Zojirushi Air Purifiers

With over 90 years of experience in making household and kitchen appliances, the Zojirushi Corporation has expanded their products to offer two air purifiers that have an ultra slim design and attractive appearance. The company made a name for itself when it launched a glass-lined vacuum bottle that was nothing short of quality and innovative materials back in 1948.

After establishing its credibility, the Zojirushi Corporation began branching out into other products, using top-of-the-line technology to bring forth rice cookers, electric boilers, electric warmers and kettles. Although it is unknown how long Zojirushi has been making air purifiers, the products make up a light sales volume for the company.

What Zojirushi prides itself on is that they use innovative designs and cutting-edge technology to introduce products that are stylish and easy to use. Zojirushi operates on a global level, with its headquarters being located in Osaka, Japan and service centers located throughout the world. In 1987, Zojirushi America Corporation was established and run out of California.

Air Purifier Price Range

The air purifiers offered through Zojirushi are very similar, except one is a bit larger than the other and offers more features that make it more favorable to use. The smaller model costs $85, while the larger one runs between $149.99 and $169.99 depending on the vendor. What makes these air purifiers stand out is that they are small, compact and super slim, measuring only 5 inches thick and being able to fit in virtually any space. They are also quiet and near silent when placed on low settings, which is why they are a popular buy for college dorm rooms or home offices.

Clean Air Delivery Rate Certified

The Zojirushi PA-LTC10 air purifier is AHAM certified and its clean air delivery rates add up to 84 for dust, 69 for smoke and 81 for pollen but is only based on 110 square foot room size. The units are best served in rooms of that size or smaller and their ultra sleek design makes this possible without taking up too much space. Zojirushi also ensures that their products are easy to use and maintain and their air cleaners fit right into this category. There is a convenient air quality monitor that allows consumers to check the quality of the air, as well as a shut-off timer and remote control.

Zojirushi Air Purifier Technology

The air cleaners use HEPA-type filters and carbon filters, which need to be replaced every two years or so. The company warns that heavy dander and smoking for example, will shorten the lifespan of the filters. However, for a pack of four filters (2 HEPA-type and 2 carbon), the bundle only costs $48. While there are many great benefits to Zojirushi air cleaners, reviews warn that the low powered fans and the sleek design compromises the power of the cleaners. In addition, there is no prefilter to trap larger particles and there is some debate as to the efficiency of HEPA-type filters instead of true, certified HEPA filters.
