How much does it cost to freeze dry Canned Corn and Canned Peas in the 4-tray Harvest Right dryer?
About $0.48 of power costs per pound.
A note from the submitter: This produce came from 6.6 lb cans. One can will fit into 4 trays. We would have had 4 trays of corn but one tray got dumped on the floor. So for future reference, a 6.6 lb can of corn or peas will fit on 4 trays. Also, peaches & pears in the 6.6 lb cans both together will fit on 4 trays.
This freeze dryer log was submitted to us from someone else (submit your freeze dryer log with an image, and we’ll get it added too – it will help others better understand everything that goes into freeze drying at home). The power costs are adjusted to their local power rates ($0.1218 vs the normal $0.10 average that we normally use). Your power rate will likely be different, so it’s important to understand your power bill.
