Longevity of machine uncertain
Four months ago I would have given the Harvest Right a 5 star review. I loved my freeze dryer and was using it weekly. Then after having if for 16 months I have started having issues and have spent the past 4 months back and forth with the company trying to figure out what the problem is. They are working with me but had been a long and tedious process.
We still have not fixed the problem and it has been completely unusable for the 2 and 1/2. Of course we are past one year warranty and am concerned where this will end up financially. For such a large investment I would have thought things should have lasted much longer. A little disappointed right now.
We'd Purchase It Again!
Easily preserve wholesome food
Get One If You're Able!
I’m a newbie at freeze-drying yet so far, I’ve been very pleased with my large Harvest Right Freeze Drier. We have a world-famous garden. I’m married to Paul Gautschi from “Back To Eden” film! We have wanted one of these for years, we saved and bought it early this year.
I was told that they were out 10 weeks, yet received ours in around five weeks! The delivery went smooth and as long as you follow their instructions you will be pleased. It is all they say it is so you need to be prepared with a cart or shelving that can hold its size and weight.
The only problem I have had has been “consumer error” and this machine has been kindly forgiving and proves to be solid in its recovery. I am so grateful that it guides you through each step of what to do next. It’s also helpful to connect with others that have one. And even if you don’t have access to that, their customer service is right there when you need them.
Yes, their customer service is great and no question seems to be too dumb! This thing really intimidated me when I first received it, because I had no clue what I was getting into and pleasantly it has been surprising how easy it is to use.
And the food? Amazing – how it actually preserves the flavor and even its physical integrity!
Just add water!
Get one if you can!

Love my freeze dryer!
No home should be without.
Products come out perfectly and taste is exactly like the fresh.
Stored properly shelf life lasts a loooong time.
Customer service can't be beat.
Easier and more versitile than canning
We pretty much just slice stuff up and pop it in the freeze drier. I like making gluten free-dairy free gravy to store. It's not something I can buy. I can freeze dry it an keep it on the shelf, instead of taking up space in the freezer.
If you are not around when the cycle is finished, the machine will keep your food perfectly until you are ready to take it out. If it's not done at the end of a cycle, you just push a button to give it more time.
Fast and efficient
Time Saving Prep
We are new to the freeze drying process of preserving food. However, the simplicity of preparation to freeze drying takes less time and such a savings in long term freezer storage.
Our garden excesses can now be kept for us to use instead of going to waste. The winter food prep for soups, stews and sauces will be a great time saver as well. So far that is the extent of my experience with freeze dried foods. Looking forward to freeze drying many different items.
Customer service has been great and very timely responding. Such a new product needs lots of questions answered.
Awesome way to preserve food!!!
Must have for everyone
Every home needs one. Food products come out amazing
Customer service is very good should you need it.
Totally agree about the fruit. It is a lot like cotton candy after it has been freeze dried; so crunchy and light. And even the more delicate fruits come out with an intense flavor that is so much better. Oh and I can't tell you how good popcorn is when sprinkled with freeze dried cheese that has been powdered in the blender. This just opens a whole new world of possibilities. Freeze dried sour cream and some green onions all powdered up: that is next. Pair that with the 120" screen and LCD projector out on the porch and it is like going to the drive-in theater.
