The Digital food dehydrator extends the fruit season for your family in the healthiest possible way. For centuries, dehydratation has been the most natural method for preserving food for a longer period of time. Now the latest technology has been applied to this time-tested concept to free it from its former dependence on weather conditions or country location! With this method, only the water is extracted, while all important nutrients are preserved and NO preservatives or chemicals are added. Unlike other Dryers - a three-stage heat fan and the forced ventilation of the separate dehydrator trays is used - this dehydrator can gently preserve fruit, mushrooms, vegetables and herbs. The food and Fruit dehydrator or Dryer can be operated with up to 6 dehydrator trays. An informative instruction manual with suggested recipes and dehydration times will assist you in your first dehydration experience. Operating principle - The food dehydrator works according to a very simple principle: hot air flows downwards through a central chimney and is distributed evenly in the individual dehydration trays, thereby extracting the moisture from fruit and other food. The device features a timer and turns off automatically when the dehydration process is finished. The dehydrated food is then wonderfully preserved and will keep for many months in sealable glass or plastic container. The right temperature is crucial - Level 1: approx 35°C above ambient temperature for herbs and mushrooms - Level 2: approx 50°C above ambient temperature for all vegetables and delicate fruits - Level 3: approx 65°C above ambient temperature for all types of fruit. 5 Trays and a lid - 32cm diameter. Full No Quibble Warranty is included.
