Well, it finally got here. This is the XL Harvest Right. And it got a lot bigger as we finally got it in the house. And if you're thinking of these, one of the things you're gonna want to do is be sure to check the size of your door.

I would pretty much guarantee that would be a great way to ruin a whole lot of fun by tearing the door off your freeze dryer. The plastic is coming off pretty good and you start to see what the real size of it is. Remove the boxes, the, uh, pump. And look at, and it is,
