YOUR BEST PRESERVATION OPTION. Freeze drying is easier than ever. In about a day, your food is freeze-dried, packaged and ready for a shelf-life of up to 25 years.
Patented Smart Control
Freeze drying at home has never been easier with the patented StayFresh automated freeze drying technology (U.S. 11,287,185).
For beginners, just prepare the food, press a few buttons, and you're all set. The machine will figure out the rest of the work to freeze dry your food. When it stops, it beeps to let you know your freeze dried food is ready!
For advanced users, there are options for you to run the drying process by trial and error in order to find the optimal solution, which can significantly reduce cost/time and increase yield in production runs.
Food safety is everyone's business.
When an oil vacuum pump is used with the freeze dryer, there is a chance that the oil mist will be drawn to the vacuum chamber. The presence of vacuum pump oil in the food poses health risks regardless of whether the oil is odorless.
The motorized ball valve in StayFresh freeze dryer remains closed when the vacuum pump is off. The vacuum pump itself comes with a check valve; therefore, the prevention of oil contamination is double guaranteed.
Stainless Steel Interior
StayFresh freeze dryer is built to last.
All key components of the freeze dryer are made of stainless steel or aluminum, which are of high strength and excellent corrosion resistance.
The more sensors, the better the outcome. It is a common industrial approach to use a probe to measure the temperature inside the food sample during freeze drying.
Though StayFresh automated freeze drying algorithm can be run without the probe, it provides insight into the status of the food being freeze dried, helps the algorithm navigate through the drying process, and improves the quality of the freeze dried product.
-40F Cold Trap
The chamber interior surface is called the 'cold trap', which captures all the water vapor during the freeze drying process.
In theory, the lower the cold trap temperature is, the better the freeze dryer performs. The cold trap in the StayFresh freeze dryer reaches -40F in a normal condition, which is suitable for most types of foods.
The practice of freeze-drying candies has gained considerable traction among freeze dryer enthusiasts. The handy 'candy mode' provides candy crafters with an effortless method to freeze-dry popular sweets like Skittles, Jolly Ranchers, and more. Simply fill the trays with your chosen confectionery delights, hit a button, and in just a few hours, your freeze-dried candies will be ready for packaging!
We have an original Stay Fresh and now a new Stay Fresh. They have made many improvements! This is a top notch machine. I have owned other brands. This is a workhorse! I've never had a problem with either Stay Fresh. My Stay Fresh gets food done 2-3 times faster than the other brand I have owned.
Very impressive customer service from Tim as well!
I highly recommend Stay Fresh!
I love my Stay Fresh Freeze Dryer! This is a new experience for me and I am learning so much. I started my first batch on October 15th and am currently processing my 23rd batch five weeks later. Everything I have processed has been amazing. This freeze dryer is so easy to use, yes the food preparation and process is a lot of work but this Stay Fresh Freeze Dryer makes it so easy and the instruction book is extremely helpful. I got the Industrial vacuum pump and am very glad I did. My freeze dryer has been going almost non stop since I got it set up in my kitchen. I have processed various fruits in various forms, meats, left overs, candy, ice cream, eggs...I am constantly thinking about what I can process next... My family loves the foods I have freeze dried and we are eating a lot more fruits and vegetables, they are great snacks. I am vacuum sealing the freeze dried food in jars and in mylar bags.
I also got and extra set of trays and am glad I did. While one batch is processing, another is in the freezer pre freezing so it is ready as soon as I finish defrosting and cleaning the freeze dryer.
The Stay Fresh Freeze Dryer is a big investment and worth every penny.
I first became interested in a freeze dryer back in the early 80's and continued to dream of getting a freeze dryer someday. I researched several different makes of freeze dryers and I believe the Stay Fresh Freeze Dryer is the best choice. After using my Stay Fresh Freeze Dryer I believe I made the best choice. Thank you Stay Fresh!
The customer service is above and beyond anyone's expectations. Now the machine is a beast. Could not ask for a better quality product and love the industrial pump.
I own 2 freeze dryers, one is a Stay Fresh, the other is a different brand. I'm very impressed with the quality of the Stay fresh & also the efficiency, I'm able to run loads through much quicker than the other one! Also in comparing the 2 different companies & their customer service, Stay fresh definitely wins!!!
Our ordering process, shipping, setup, and first use was seamless. This machine is a workhorse! We have been running 2-3 batches per week (sometimes more) for almost 6 months and we haven't had a single problem. We're doing everything from much of our garden produce & fresh fruit, to candy for the grandkids, to full meals like Brunswick stew, roast beef with carrots, potatoes, & gravy, meatloaf, and lots more. We are now able to buy/grow larger quantities of food we find on sale or in season, which saves us money in the long run, and we are building up our supply of emergency food/meals that store longer and take less space than all my canned goods. The machine is easy to use, very quiet, and reliable.
Every single feature and process with this machine blows the competitor out of the water. I will only by from now on for my business. Worked out of the box and continues to work!
Great customer service, high-quality machine. No complaints at all with it,fully recommend.
We especially like having freeze dried fruits and vegetables. The vegetables can be made into a powder and mixed with mashed potatoes so they don't know what they are eating. The dried fruit is a great snack anytime. With Stay Fresh the customer support is awesome. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in freeze drying.
I bought two harvest right and had to return both of !
Then I bought a Stay Fresh Freeze Dryer!!!
After 265 days of use it still works great .
I would and have recommend a Stay Fresh Freeze Dryer over a harvest right any day.
I have only used these two bands ! I would only buy Stay Fresh now.
I sold my Freeze dryer that was made by someone else because I had nothing but problems and got poor customer service. I have nothing bad to say about Stay Fresh Tim answers email questions promptly and informatively and it’s amazing! So glad I made the switch! I’m freeze drying things that I never could with my other machine. The efficiency and quality of the Stay Fresh is top of the line! I would recommend only this brand to anyone!
We have had our machine for 7 months and have loved using it. Even when there was a minor hiccup, customer service was on it and helped get it resolved quickly.
I am beyond happy with this product, and even happier with the customer service. Every question or concern I have had has been immediately addressed and resolved. They have gone above and beyond with making sure the customer is taken care of from trouble shooting user errors to giving prompt responses (even calling back when I didn’t leave a message!). They have absolutely earned my 5 star review!! LOVE MY STAY FRESH!!
We love our Stay Fresh. It was easy to setup and easy to use! So happy we made the choice to go with a Stay Fresh.
Great machine and absolutely the best Customer Service!
I bought this machine after purchasing another machine from another competitor and the machine from that say company did not work right out of the box. The customer service for that company was lacking .Stayfresh worked right out of the box.i have had it for a year if not about a year now no complaints. the only issues I had WERE OPERATOR ERROR ( i am not too good with certain things) and kids were not available at that time, but even then I received knowledgeable,kind,quick response and respectful help that resolved those issues ASAP. I WOULD LOVE IF EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT STAYFRESH AS A 1ST CHOICE
