Freeze Drying Food with the CryoDry® CD8 Freeze Dryer

Freeze drying is a preservation method that removes water from food, allowing it to last for months or even years without refrigeration. This makes it an ideal method for preserving food at home or in hospitality, as it allows you to stock up on food when it is in season and enjoy or use it later when it is out of season. Freeze drying is also a fantastic way to reduce food waste. One of the most popular freeze dryers for domestic and hospitality use is the CryoDry® CD8.

One of the key benefits of using the CryoDry® CD8 is its ability to preserve the taste, shape, and nutritional value of your food. Unlike other preservation methods, freeze drying does not use heat or chemicals, which can damage the quality of your food. Instead, it uses a process called sublimation, where the water in your food is frozen and then removed through a vacuum process, leaving behind the food in a dehydrated state.

The CryoDry® CD8 is a compact and easy-to-use freeze dryer that can handle a wide range of foods, from fruits and vegetables to meats and dairy products. It features a simple touch screen interface that allows you to easily set the drying temperature and time, as well as monitor the progress of your food.

Another great feature of the CryoDry® CD8 is its ability to handle large batches of food. With a changeable shelf configuration from 1 to 9 shelves, it can handle up to 9.6 kg of food at a time, which is perfect for families or individuals as well as small to mid size hospitality businesses, who want to stock up on food for the long term.

The CryoDry® CD8 is also very easy to clean and maintain. It features a powerful Scroll Pump which does not require oil and has a long service interval between services. The drying chamber is also easy to clean, with removable shelves that can be washed and dried. Overall, the CryoDry® CD8 is an excellent choice for anyone looking to preserve food in a domestic or hospitality environment.

With the CryoDry® CD8, you can preserve and stock up on food when it is in season and enjoy it later when it is out of season, without having to worry about it going bad. Are you ready to join the food prep revolution, start freeze drying and reduce food waste? Visit us at to find a dealer near you.
