    New In-Home Freeze Dryer Makes This Superior Form of Food Storage Practical, Affordable

    When it comes to food preservation, freeze drying is the gold standard. Harvest Right has designed an affordable freeze dryer for the home that lets food lovers preserve their favorite vegetables, fruit, meats, and whole meals for months and even years.



    Salt Lake City, UT, May 08, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Making freeze drying food at home practical and affordable for the first time, Harvest Right is bringing the benefits of this proven form of food storage to families all across America.

    The company today introduced the In-Home Freeze Dryer by Harvest Right, a unit that can freeze dry vegetables, fruit, meat, and complete meals, producing multiple days' worth of meals in 24 hours in a form that can last for many years without refrigeration.

    Freeze drying is far less work than canning, and the freeze drying process retains much more of the nutritional value of the food. Once freeze dried, the food can be easily rehydrated when needed, and it is much easier to store than in canning jars or in standard freezers.

    The In-Home Freeze Dryer by Harvest Right was designed by Harvest Right and is manufactured in the U.S. When food is placed on four shelves in the freeze drying chamber, the unit freezes it to 30 to 50 degrees below zero. Then it gradually warms the food, drawing all the moisture out of it, sensing when the food is perfectly freeze dried.

    The whole automated process takes about 24 hours, and the resulting dried food can be stored in plastic bags for short-term storage or mylar bags with oxygen absorbers for long-term storage. The In-Home Freeze Dryer by Harvest Right can freeze dry up to 10 pounds, or about two gallons, of food at a time. That is the equivalent of two No. 10 cans as sold by freeze-dried food vendors. In a year's time, a user could easily preserve well over 400 gallons of food.

    "Whether you want to preserve excess food from your garden or want to be sure you have a supply of food readily available for a short-term or long-term emergency, the In-Home Freeze Dryer is perfect for your needs," said Dan Neville, CEO of Harvest Right. "It is always wise to have some extra food and water on hand in case of power outages or natural disasters, and this method is the best way to prepare that food for yourself."

    The In-Home Freeze Dryer by Harvest Right is also ideal for parents who want to make and preserve their own baby food, people on gluten-free or vegan diets who want to make sure they have adequate food on hand, and individuals who want to be sure they have a large quantity of safely preserved food on hand in case of personal or societal emergencies.

    "The In-Home Freeze Dryer is for anyone who wants to create and store high-quality, minimally processed and better tasting emergency or camping food that is tailored to their families' tastes," said Neville. "Whether they plan to eat the food next week or next year or five years from now, it lasts longer, is faster and less work than canning, and preserves limited freezer space for families."

    The In-Home Freeze Dryer by Harvest Right is 30 by 24 by 25 inches and weighs about 100 pounds. It operates on standard 110-volt power, and requires no more electricity than a second refrigerator or freezer. The unit costs less than half as much as any other freeze drying equipment on the market.

    Interesting....it was only a matter of time til someone designed a home/DIY model.
    Price though is $3900 (or $4100 for the stainless model). Guessing a talented maker could build something similar himself. Its essentially a environmental chamber that goes down to -40 deg F and has an industrial quality vacuum pump too. If you can source the parts yourself and get some at surplus prices (maybe at Surplus Center or similar) I'd bet you could make your own for less than half the cost.

    It would be nice to have, but for the cost - wouldn't it be better for most to just buy that much mountain house or other brand of freeze dried? Now if a group went in on the purchase - then I could see where it would be cost effective as a lot of freeze dried food could be put away for the group.

    Now if I had an extra $3900 of change burning a hole in my pocket - I think it would be nice to have.
