This machine just works and is well built….. unlike the harvest right I bought that was non functional right out of the box.

Beginner Friendly and Helpful

As a first-time freeze dryer user, using one seems highly technical and intimidating. The support I received (provided manuals and contact with the owner) was more than enough to get me started and also learning more of the intricacies and algorithms of StayFresh's freeze dryers.

Back I was comparing freeze dryers, freeze dryer brands, and owners. Based on my location, the type of communication with the owners, and online communities, StayFresh has a strong start right out of the gates compared to other freeze dryers where the StayFresh owner has a PhD in Computational Materials Science. Some owner's/competitors seemed to have unrelated degrees but their religious backgrounds indicated it was for religious/stockpiling reasons at first which grew into a business. Another owner strongly communicated they were created to spite another company due to the complaints and quality issues.

Candy, meats, fruits, vegetables, herbs, the freeze dryer is capable of doing all. Other options like pharmaceuticals or other non-food applications, definitely seem doable with the StayFresh Freeze Dryer. All in all, I feel that I have done a thorough research of the available components of freeze dryers, the owners, the companies, and their locations with StayFresh, again with being the best for my situation.

Stay fresh v Harvest Right

I love my new Stay Fresh FD. Works flawlessly. No more vacuum errors, added time and countless other issues that I had with the HR. The Stay Fresh takes about half the time to FD a larger amount than the Harvest Right. Better Quality by far. Pic is Apricots

Freeze dryer 7 shelf

Everything is going good with the dryer. Cleaning the shelves is tough they are close together. Other than that everything has been good.
