A follow-on to this. The freezing unit, reportedly, works in the 'Slow' temperature range, limiting it's use. No, we do not have one in the enclave, but observing reports from others. Some unhappy customers.

 

 

Quoting from the Librum FaceBook website:

 

"Another update from the ICS side of the house. Due to the new 'home freeze drying' machines appearing on the market, and their freezing limitations, a request for prioritization change of ICS TP 5139 (1952) Quick Freezing of Foods was received. The Archivist did so, and it is now up. This training paper details the types of freezing, temperatures, etc for various types of foods. Sharp vs Quick vs Slow, etc."

It's at the archive in the ICS TP section, icsarchive.org. Ummm....

A good read, even if a bit too technical for me.

They now have three sizes. The papa bear size is $4k, the mama bear size is $3k, and the baby bear size is $2400 with this week's sale. I can't imagine buying one that wasn't on sale.

Glad to see they are still working on this. Hopefully freeze drying will go the way of dehydrators and microwaves. Meaning smaller and cheaper. I hope! Wouldn't it be nice to have a freeze dryer the size of an Excalibur dehydrator instead of the size of a washing machine?
