PRIOR TO HARVEST RIGHT FREEZE DRYERS
When we say Home Freeze Dryer™, we truly mean home. It provides the convenience, simplicity, and electrical power requirements of other major kitchen appliances.
The only choice you had prior to Harvest Right™ was to purchase a commercial grade freeze dryer. With this outrageously expensive purchase ($30,000) came a learning curve of scientific methods, mechanical maintenance, and a need for 220 power. The cumbersome activity of calculating water content within specific food types to ensure proper freezing and drying procedures created frustration and wasted the users time. Additional time for monitoring the food during the process, and making corrective adjustments were also needed.
Along with only being able to freeze dry the same type of food in a batch, you had to understand the mechanical needs to properly use and maintain this commercial grade freeze dryer. In addition to being expensive to purchase, it was very expensive to run. Simply put, a commercial freeze dryer was not built for in-home use.
Harvest Right™ has built the only Home Freeze Dryer™ that is truly a home appliance. It is easy to use, small in size, and has a large capacity. The smart technology allows one to simultaneously place various types of food in the chamber, press start, and walk away. By itself, the freeze dryer calculates the necessary dry time and automatically monitors the freeze dry process to completion. This makes it easy to use, as well as convenient — saving you time, money, and energy.
You don’t have to be an expert to own it. Nor do you need to be a large company to buy it.
- The process is simple. The food freezes to an ultra cold temperature. The chamber the food is in becomes a vacuum and the water evaporates out of the food.
- The process is automatic. The person using the freeze dryer simply presses “Start” and the process runs to completion.
- It doesn’t matter what one puts in the freeze dryer. There can be pineapple on one shelf, apple on another, yogurt on a third, and a leftover meal on the last shelf.
Better Than Canning and Dehydrating
As a food preservation method, it is easier than canning and dehydrating and will last 7 to 8 times longer. Just put your leftover meals and ripening fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy in your own freeze dryer and press start. In about 20 to 36 hours, your food is ready to be packaged for a shelf life of up to 25 years.
Preserves Taste, Color and Nutritional Value
Freeze drying is remarkable because it causes no damage to the nutrition of the food being preserved. Other methods of preservation, such as canning and dehydrating, use higher temperatures that can destroy more than half (50%) the food value. Freeze drying does not shrink or toughen the food, but retains the aroma, flavor, color, shape and nutritional content. Simply add water. Apples, cheese, avocados, meat, raspberries, peas, ice cream and yogurt will still look and taste fresh because, in reality, they still are. Without water and oxygen to spoil the food, it is as if the food has been placed in a time capsule. It will last and last and last!
Freeze-Dry Large Pieces of Food and Complete Meals
A Harvest Right Home Freeze Dryer™ allows you to preserve large pieces of tasteful, high quality food, such as apricot halves, thick peach slices, large slabs of cooked steak, whole shrimp, ice cream sandwiches, and a lot more. You don’t have to settle for the small dices or shavings of fruit or meat that you find in store bought, freeze dried products. Prepare it and preserve it how you want it.
Your Food, Your Needs
Prepackaged, processed meals typically include unhealthy additives, such as sodium nitrate, high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, monosodium glutamate (MSG), food dyes and colors. When you freeze dry at home, your food is untainted. It will accommodate any dietary need, including food allergies, vegetarian, or vegan needs. It is perfect for a non-preservative or non-GMO (genetically modified organisms) diet that is designed for a healthy lifestyle.

Once we receive our harvest Right unit, the freeze dryer is just ready to go. We got the large one just because we want to do large batches for those fruit filled snacks I prepare for my kids. I bring some to work at the day care center and they just absolutely love every bit of it. It made these children switch from those junk-filled chips to healthier fruits cups. I find it very easy for myself to maintain the machine because the oil-free pump doesn’t really need much. I’m glad I went with that upgrade because I don’t really have all the time in the world. This is totally an investment that I can already see paying off. Even my home-cooked meals can be preserved freeze-dried style and it still tastes fresh from the stove after reheating. If you really want you’re freeze drying experience to be worry-free, I recommend you upgrade to the oil-free pump and will all be worth it.

I’ve had my large dryer and oil less pump since December of 2018 and in 15 months I have processed over 2500 pounds of foods. All types of foods. Cooked or raw meats, Dairy, vegetables, fruits, eggs, soups, whole meals even ice cream.
The large dryer will process more food than the small and medium dryer….combined. When compared to buying commercially produced FD foods the Harvest Right dryer will pay for itself in as little as 6 months. The company has a 5 star costumer service department. This has been the best investment I’ve made for my preps and peace of mind to have foods that are shelf stable for up to 30 years. Because it doesn’t use a heat process like canning or dehydrating, freeze dried foods will retain 97% of the flavor and nutrients of the foods. Most foods can be re-hydrated in a short time and taste as fresh as the day it was bought. I recently opened a bag of raw Cod that I packaged a year ago. It re-hydrated in 10 min and cooked up great. It tasted like fresh Cod.
Happy owner –
I own a dog treat business and this machine has been a game changer. If you are on the fence about the pumps, don’t be! The oil free pump is a time saver as there is little to no maintenance. Thanks to Plant Based Pros for helping me choose the perfect freeze dryer! Yes, it was a long wait during the pandemic, but the free shipping, no taxes and bonus coupon made this a steal and 100% worth the wait.
