The Harvest Right Freeze Dryer is designed to work in a wide variety of environmental temperatures, but extreme heat and cold will affect performance.
The recommended temperature range for operation is 2 – 32 °C. The most efficient temperature range is between 7-24°C. Although safe, operating your freeze dryer in temperatures above 32˚C will increase batch times and may have an adverse effect on the condensing unit (freezer). As the temperature rises where your freeze dryer operates, so does the length of time it takes to finish. This happens because with hotter operating temperatures, it is harder to reach the extreme cold required for freeze drying. When running your freeze dryer in temperatures higher than 32˚C, place a small fan in a location where it can blow air on the vacuum pump. This will help the pump run more efficiently and may increase the life of the vacuum pump. Better yet, operate the unit in an air-conditioned room.
The large freeze dryer ships in one package with a total weight of 115kg (125kg for the stainless steel model) and on a small pallet. Item will be delivered to physical addresses, no PO boxes, they just don't fit.

Why a freeze dryer?
A Harvest Right freeze dryer allows you to keep your home-grown fruits and vegetables fresh for years and years. Freeze drying at home is the very best way to preserve your garden harvest. It truly is the gardener’s best friend.
BETTER THAN CANNING
Unlike canning, freeze drying causes very little damage to the nutritional value of your garden produce. Freeze-dried foods retain around 97% of the nutrients.
BETTER THAN DEHYDRATING
Heat can affect taste, color, and texture causing your garden produce to look and taste very different. Freeze-dried food, in contrast, looks and tastes just like the food did when fresh.
SAVE FOOD AND MONEY
Freeze drying the food you grow in your garden is the best way to preserve your harvest and helps you save money on your grocery costs.
PREVENT FOOD WASTE
The average American family wastes a lot of food. A recent study by the USDA found that the average American wastes about one pound of food per day, which can cost the average family up to $2,400 per year. Chances are that this average would apply to many Australian families too.
Preserve the healthy food you buy or grow with a home freeze dryer and save money by eliminating waste.
There is no better way to prepare for an emergency than with a home freeze dryer. Freeze-dried food is perfect for emergency food supplies, bug out bags, 72-hour kits, and other survival packs. With a home freeze dryer, you will be prepared for any kind of emergency.
Most people will be affected by some type of serious disaster in their lifetime. Home freeze drying puts you in control of your family’s survival, no matter the circumstances.
Man-made disasters such as war, explosions, chemical spills, and terrorism, cause human suffering, loss of life, and food shortages. Freeze drying gives you peace of mind in case any of these worst-case scenarios occur.
A home freeze dryer allows you to easily preserve large amounts of food and create a high-quality emergency food supply, so you can take care of yourself and loved ones in case of job loss or financial downturns.
Buying freeze-dried food from a store is expensive. The food is often full of salt and other preservatives and the limited choice means you buy meals you may not even like eating. Freeze drying your own meals and produce is a great way to save money when building your emergency food supply.
Camping and Hunting
Harvest Right lets you freeze dry your own food at home to be used on your next hike, backpacking adventure, hunting trip, or campout. It is lightweight, has less salt, and tastes better than anything else that will fit in your backpack. It’s perfect for every outdoor enthusiast.
HIKING & BACKPACKING
Freeze dry your favourite food and enjoy it on the trail during your next hike or backpacking adventure. It is lightweight and easy to prepare (just add hot water). Take your favourite homemade or restaurant meals.
HUNTING & FISHING
Avid hunters and fishermen can end up with too much meat or fish all at once. Now you can freeze dry any extra, whether cooked or raw. When you rehydrate the food, you won’t know the difference between fresh and freeze-dried.
There is no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy your favourite meals at your next campsite. You can freeze-dry lightweight, easy-to-prepare meals that will taste fantastic. In fact, you can eat as well in the wild as you do at home.
ON THE ROAD
Caravan and camper trailer food should be delicious, lightweight, easy-to-prepare, and not require refrigeration. Freeze drying at home allows you to easily create weeks’ worth of food for the next time you decide to hit the road.
With Harvest Right’s home freeze dryer, you can feed your pets the healthy, preservative-free, home-prepared food they deserve and crave. There are many reasons to feed your pet home freeze-dried food.
Feeding your pets freeze-dried food is a great way to keep them healthy. Many feel a raw diet of freeze-dried food is best for pets.
Freeze-dried pet food and snacks can be very expensive. Freeze drying at home lets you provide freeze-dried food for your pet at a fraction of the cost.
Some pets have very finicky tastes. Freeze drying at home lets you discover what freeze-dried food your pet loves most and, since you control the ingredients, you can fully trust the food you’re feeding to your pet.
A 1-year warranty applies (6 months on the vacuum pump). Warranty eligibility will be determined by Harvest Right and honoured by Ozfarmer Australia where the claim is deemed to be caused by a manufacturing fault. User error is specifically excluded, and the freeze dryer comes with comprehensive instructions. Support videos are available online. Note that this is a very high quality item and warranty claims are minimal. Spare parts can be shipped to fix the vast majority of issues.
HR has a policy of “ALL questions, concerns and tickets are the responsibility of Harvest Right customer service. Harvest Right will make the determination on when a machine needs to be returned for service, repair or refund.” Most issues with the machines are user related and can be easily remedied via email to the Harvest Right technical team. In the event that the item needs to be returned, you will be responsible for getting the unit to a business address with forklift or TNT depot for collection.
