Based on the strength and thoroughness of your review, we bought a machine and just processed our first batch. It is everything you said it was. Thanks for the great review and helpful info. – M.W.
Hugh Replies:I’m glad that review helped you. We have been running ours full bore since the review and have accumulated quite the batch of freeze dried foods that are both standard fare and those that cannot be purchased. It has made an amazing impact on our prepping. Everything from garden herbs to full meals work well. Basically, if you can freeze it, you can freeze dry it (except for butter, which we haven’t tried again yet).
