How Lyo Chef works

Place the fresh food on the trays, close and start the Lyo Chef. The first phase is to freeze the chamber and the food. Its powerful blast chiller pump will bring the chamber down to -50°C, at which point the special high vacuum pump will start up.

You will be able to see the times, temperatures and process status on the LCD display at all times.

The freeze-drying process will then begin. The trays will begin to temper thanks to a thermal silicone that has the support of the trays, this causes the temperature of the food to drop a few degrees. This drop will generate enough evaporation for the product to dry out. The steam released will be trapped on the walls of the main chamber. This process is repeated throughout the process and accelerates the sublimation process.

Once the selected time has elapsed, we pressurize the chamber again and remove the food and store it in vacuum-tight jars or a dry cupboard until it is ready for use. These products can be stored for years if they are preserved from humidity.

Set the defrost position and open the Lyo Chef exhaust valve. The ice layer that has formed around the chamber will thaw completely, do a thorough cleaning, and start again with a new freeze-drying process.

Every three cycles we must drain the oil from the vacuum pump, let it settle and decant any water not trapped by the cold trap, refill the pump again with clean oil and finish filling until the average working level is reached.

We recommend the following products to complete your freeze-drying process:

Lyo Chef M Teflon - 6 pcs: resistant and non-stick sheets on both sides. They do not allow the exchange of flavours between preparations and prevent the products from sticking. They are completely smooth accessories and do not leave marks on the product. 

Spare oil for Lyo Chef: in order to carry out good maintenance, Lyo Chef needs to renew the oil in the pump to keep it clean and protect it from corrosion from time to time. This will extend its useful life. 

Pump oil filter - 3 pcs: in order to make the most of the pump oil, it is best to use a filter to separate the waste and reuse the oil, thus saving money and helping the environment.

  • A high performance high vacuum pump with synthetic oil to facilitate separation and decanting.
  • Connections to the freeze-dryer for vacuuming.
