Here's a description of the O-Box 3000 from the Monster Maniax:

Food contamination with microbes in school lunch boxes is a major health concern. Our research has shown ozone to be a highly effective microbe killer. O-Box 3000 is a lunchbox capable of generating ozone to kill the bacteria on food or in the container. It takes approximately 72 seconds to generate and distribute the ozone. The generator consists of a micro-fan, 12V rechargeable battery, transformer and corona generating electrodes. Oxygen molecules in air are split into atoms by a corona discharge and recombine to form ozone, which is distributed in the food storage compartment. This feasible and inexpensive solution kills bacteria, and only costs about $37. Overall, this solution can help to prevent the bacterial contamination of food in kids’ lunchboxes.
