How to Use a Dehydrator

Before you start dehydrating you should know  the difference between air temperature and food temperature. You see, when you first start dehydrating something, evaporation keeps the food in the dehydrator COOLER than the temperature of the air in the dehydrator. In general, food will be around 20° F cooler.

I recommend setting your dehydrator at a higher temperature for a few hours then turning it down. This helps avoid fermentation and reduces the time food is in the dehydrator - the longer you leave something in  a dehydrator the greater the risk that enzymes can be destroyed or mold can grow, even at lower temperatures.

Temperatures and times also vary geographically. You need  to experiment see what works best for you and where you live. Some humid areas need higher temperatures. Dry, hot arid areas may need lower!

Personally, I start at 115-125° F depending on thickness and moisture  content, and then turn the thermostat down to 105-110° F until the recipe is as dry as I want.

Introducing the Aroma Nutriware Dehydrator - finally, an affordable design for raw foodists! I prefer this wonderful appliance over all the dehydrators I own, including the Excalibur! It's just a much better value in many ways - and much less expensive!

The Aroma 6-Tray Dehydrator is the best, easy-to-use, digitally-controlled horizontal dehydrator that is truly affordable! -- and loaded with features that you'd expect only in high-priced models!

First, the Aroma is a horizontal-flow dehydrator - like the most expensive models.The Aroma dehydrates more evenly and accurately without rotating trays.

ThermostatAlso, cheap dehydrators don't have a good thermostat - they have a one-temperature fits all approach! Imagine if your oven worked like that!

Different foods require different drying temperatures to properly preserve their nutrition and flavor. An accurate thermostatis essential to make sure you are using the proper temperature. Too high a temperature can kill enzymes, reduce flavor and destroy vitamins. Too low a temperature can allow bacteria and mold to grow!

Key Features:

  • 6-tray model fits nicely under most cabinets on your kitchen counter
  • Includes 6 mesh sheets smaller items
  • Adjustable thermostat: 95° F to 158° F
  • Designed in white to blend with most decors
  • Rear mounted fan and heating element distributes heat evenly across each tray, saves energery and dehydrates more efficiently.
  • 5-year warranty
  • My exclusive 30-Day Unconditional Guarantee - no questions asked!
  • Free Shipping, Sales Tax Included
  • Lightweight - just 15 lbs.


Raw Flax Crackersflax crackers

These are are a great source of vital essential fatty acids and great for dips or snacks. They are a staple in my own diet!  First, soak your flax seeds for 4-6 hours in spring water. Add your choice of seasonings then place in the dehydrator on non-stick sheets.  Run the dehydrator for five to six hours, then using a dull butter knife score the crackers into squares and flip them over. Finally run it for another five to six hours. Requires parchment paper or nonstick sheets, not included.

Watch out for unauthorized sellers! If you buy from a seller that isn't authorized, you may not get my exclusive 30-Day Unconditional Guarantee or the 5-Year Warranty!

How to tell if a dealer is not authorized: Check the price. The manufacturer's Minimum Authorized Price (MAP) is $179.95.Less than that is not authorized. Though I sell at the MAP, I give you extras worth over $100.00 plus an unheard of 30-Day Money Back Guarantee! So this really is the best overall value you'll find!
