Dry More Food Faster! Large vs Medium

This Large freeze dryer will dry more food more efficiently than any competitor on the market. But how does our Large unit compare to our Medium? Let's go over the specs.

Max Load Up to 15 lbs. or 1 gallon Up to 25 lbs. or 2 gallons
Dimensions 20" x 21" x 30" 24" x 25.5" x 34"
Weight (with pump) 110 lbs. 130 lbs.


  • Double the tray size/capacity of the Medium model
  • Overall Machine Size: 24" x 25.5" x 34", 130 lbs
  • Up to 25lbs of food per cycle with 16lbs being a normal 24-hour cycle 
  • 5 trays.  13x18 standard cookie sheets
  • Average freeze-drying cycles take 12-20 hours 
  • 120V, 20A Breaker 
  • 17 Amps Maximum Power Draw (1560W max)
  • 12 Amps Average Power Draw (1080W average)
  • Chamber Diameter: 15.7 inches
  • Plexiglass Door Thickness: 1 inch
  • Cubigel Compressor (R1270) - 1/2 HP compressor with 14.3cc displacement (larger compressor = higher cooling capacity = faster batches). This is approximately 28-43% more cooling capacity than competitor brands.

  • Vacuum Pump: Premium Rotary Vane Style, 10-12 CFM, 1 HP

Power Requirments

The Large Freeze Dryer does use a 20 amp Receptacle.  Most receptacles in a house are 15 amps. So you will need a 20 amp breaker and a 20 amp receptacle. Below is a link to the receptacle that is needed.

What makes us Different:

Here at Blue Alpine, we are serious about three things: freeze dryers, quality, and customer service. We have spent the last five years researching, engineering, and testing our freeze dryers to make them the highest quality possible. 

Many small improvements add up to a massive difference in quality, and overall, a superior large machine.
  • These are Built In Idaho with the highest quality components.  
  • Our refrigeration system uses Cubigel compressors, a trusted name brand with excellent quality and longevity.
  • More cooling capacity (double in our large model), which translates to faster batches (twice as fast as competitors with the large model).
  • A circulating fan inside the chamber blast-freezes the food, creating better quality food and faster freeze times. 
  • A P100 filter inside the chamber protects your vacuum pump from particulates, increasing the lifespan of the vacuum pump.
  • Smart software utilizes PID control technology and solid-state relays to freeze-dry your food accurately.
  • We use a natural refrigerant (R1270) that is future-proof, unlike R404 or R410 which will both be discontinued soon.
  • On our machine, all vacuum fittings are barbed fittings. We do not use crimped fittings which are prone to vacuum leaks. 
  • We use thread-locker to seal all threads. We do not use Teflon Tape which is also leak-prone. 
  • The frame of our machines is made with extruded aluminum and is incredibly durable.  
  • Recipes built into the software allow you to optimize your freeze-drying cycles. Candy, for example, can get done in about 2 hours. Fruit, on the other hand, takes about 6-18 hours depending on the load.

Highly Recommend!

The product AND the company are truly top notch! I am one to research like crazy before committing to a large purchase. My wife and I researched all of the current options available today and we decided to go with Blue Alpine. We love how they use common parts. So "IF" something fails, I can likely fix it myself with just a trip to the hardware store. Customer service is amazing! I wore out that chat box asking all sorts of questions, and they were gracious to answer every single one. If they didn't know the answer right off hand, they said "Hold on, Let me go check", and were back within just a few minutes with the answer. They care about their product. And they care about their customers. If ANYTHING goes wrong (which is rare), they will try to make it right. If you have ANY questions whatsoever, they are happy to answer. Their units are designed and assembled in the USA and are working towards being fully Made In USA. (Working on supply chain stuff to make that happen). They studied many of the common issues that other brands have and took the time to research and solve those issues on their units. It's a very solid machine. We are very happy with our purchase!

Wow! First impression makes a difference.

Haven’t hooked machine up yet as we are still preparing a place for it with electric. Initially we didn’t expect the machine for 10 weeks or more. They called and offered one immediately if I was ok with black. Super nice and had that small business personal feel that they cared. Machine came in and found a nice courtesy note with a bag of skittles, I know it’s a small gesture but it was appreciated and a nice touch considering their competition never bothered when we got our first machine elsewhere.

If all goes well and we need another machine, I can already say Blue Alpine is at the top of my list.

Love our new Large freeze dryer

It works great, way less time than other companies out there with candy making and fb groups and testing it has been successful ever batch to show it works more quickly. Was easy to put the pump on and do oil changes. I will admit I had no idea what I was doing prior to receiving it even though I looked online I didn’t fully understand how it worked till it was here and I did a test batch of candy. It was so easy! I’ve done apples and bananas as well and they are amazing. I was told the largest are very loud and while it is loud it’s not as loud as I was expecting. I’m sensitive to the ovens overhead fan and this doesn’t bother me. We have it in our dining room. It is very heavy though.

Love it!

In the two weeks we've had our Blue Alpine it has run constantly and perfectly! We couldn't be happier!
