Cycle Time:

My cycle time in a 2017 medium Freeze Dryer was about 23.5 hours


Add some water to the bottom of a shallow bowl or plate, put your fish in, cover with a wet paper towel. Microwave for about 3 minutes, leave covered and let sit an additional 5 minutes.


* Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray
