They seem to be getting them out. I’ve been following a couple freeze drying groups, building my knowledge base before it gets here, and people seem to be getting them anywhere between 2 and 12 weeks. It appears to depend on the configuration you ordered. They build in batches, and you get yours when the next run of that configuration is done.They could have a difficult time getting parts. We are slow at work because of the microchip shortage, and we don't do anything with chips.......
Unfortunately, I adhered to the “buy once; cry once” philosophy, and ordered the top-end consumer model, so the runs are probably less frequent.
