Harvest Right Large Black Freeze Dryer

The Harvest Right Freeze Dryer makes preserving food a walk in the park. You can preserve anything from fruits to vegetables, dairy products to desserts, and even full blown meals such as lasagna and scalloped potatoes. The process takes anywhere between 24 to 36 hours, after which you can stow the dried up food into canning jars for snacking on whenever the cravings kick in. Freeze drying retains the original shape, color, flavor and nutritional value of the food. Unlike canning and dehydrating that takes a toll on the nutritional value, freeze drying keeps it exactly how it was when first harvested. So, stop throwing away leftover and ripened fruits and store them up for later use!

We LOVE the Harvest Right Freeze Dryer, going on 6 years of use!

We have the original Harvest Right freeze dryer and have loved it since day 1. It is a great investment and will save you money and cut down on food waste. We had been buying expensive pre-packaged freeze-dried food and meals for years until we heard about the Harvest Right home freeze dryer. We have made freeze-dried eggs, chicken, green beans, strawberries, and so much more but the BEST has to be ice cream. This machine is great for putting up your garden harvest, left-over meals or buying in bulk and planning for the future. It is even great for freeze-drying orange and lemon slices to use for crafts and decoration. The color and look of the food is beautiful, not dark and shriveled like dehydrating food. And the flavor of the rehydrated food is exactly like it was when it was fresh! You don't even have to rehydrate the food to enjoy it.

No regrets

We purchased a Harvest Right Freeze Drier almost a year and a half ago and our experience has left us with two major thoughts: why didn’t we do this sooner? and why didn’t we buy a larger freeze drier? Now we always have favorite foods on the shelf in portion sized mylar envelopes, needing no refrigeration. Healthy, ready made snacks are always handy and welcome when we travel. Freeze dried portions are healthier and far less expensive than convenience store snacks which often are laden with unwanted chemical additives. Freeze drying allows us to stockpile the bounty of our garden for enjoyment at a later date. All of which brings us full circle, why didn’t we get a freeze drier long ago and start enjoying all of these benefits sooner?

Great investment + Fantastic Support

I've wanted a HarvestRight for many years but could never justify the investment. It always came back to the oil pump & the requirement that you need to filter or change the oil after each & every run. It looked like such a pain in the neck that I knew it would limit how often I'd use the machine. Fortunately, HarvestRight now provides an oil-free pump, one that not only eliminates any maintenance overhead, runs relatively quiet & never gets too hot to touch. It’s not inexpensive but considering its 'plug & play' in that you plug it in, follow the menu, & let it run, the oil-free pump is a great investment. This is a well-built product & you can tell that HarvestRight invests considerably into both product engineering & quality control. A

Long wait but worth it

These things are in high demand right now! We ordered our black medium sized unit in April and had to wait almost 3 months to receive it. The wait was worth it. It arrived via Fedex freight and was well packaged on a pallet. It is fairly heavy so it is probably best to have two people or at least a dolly available. We have been running ours pretty much non-stop, experimenting, learning and getting a feel for how it works. We have contacted support a couple times with various questions and they have been responsive and helpful. We went with the upgraded oil pump and it is very quiet.
