Product Description

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.

There are a lot of "posh" dehydrators out there for £200+, aimed at the "raw food" movement, which requires that food be dried at a pretty low temperature to preserve its enzymes; and there are quite a few for about £35. The ones at the £35 mark tend to either not have very adjustable temperature, or not have a timer - but this model has both, and enables me to dehydrate food at the low temperatures required by raw food standards.

It comes with a set of circular acrylic trays with a hole in the middle (the shape of an American doughnut), and you can load these trays up with pretty much anything, leaving the centre empty. This prevents anything from dripping into the main eletrical unit that houses the heating element and fan. The machine is pretty quiet - like a new computer cooling fan. When you first switch it on, it says "10" on the readout, but there's no indication of what this means. In fact it means it will run for 10 hours, and you can increase or decrease this with the very simple buttons.

It works brilliantly. Spread your slices out so they get good air circulation (won't work very well if you cram them in or they're overlapping). I've dried tomatoes, bananas, apples, raw food "cookies", oatcakes (top tip, dry some tomatoes and blend them to dust, then add to savoury biscuits or pastry: AMAZING. You don't need to prep most food: meats etc DO need to be prepared/salted (just google "home made biltong" for the info, but it's a very important safety step), and for some fruit like apples it's a good idea to give your slices a quick dunk in lemon juice before putting them in, so they don't go brown as they dry. You can choose to put a little sugar or salt, or herbs on things before you dry them to augment their flavour.

New to this way of preserving I didn't want to spend to much on an initial dryer: but it was recommended I get all the features on this one. I have had it busy since it arrived and am very pleased with the results. The only drawback was a lack of a recipe book. I now have one and am going to get more adventurous. The preserved food takes up so little space, I can keep the freezer for long term meat. If you are thinking of taking up this method of food preservation I would say this is a good place to start.

This is very slow, drying anything takes at least three times as long as the suggested times using the suggested temperatures.

I just got my new appliance today ( ordered last tuesday ) it has not stopped drying and I've had 2 bowls of fruit...."instead a sandwich".... basic knowledge of cooking is needed and also common sense..... if it takes too long ( what is too long ?) just rise the temperature, or cut the fruit with a mandoline. check the fruit/veg regularly -of course tomatoes will take longer than sliced apples.- as I said use common sense.. I am very pleased with my dehydrator and I'm sure will be more as I practice and try mora and more . the instruction booklet is enough to understand the process ... but, I also bought a book of recipes ( simple but also useful ) I'm now searching for the parchment needed to make fruit leather.. I do not understand wingeing and putting the machine down. it is brilliant,reasonably priced -for an starting kit- and of low energy consuming. I am satisfied so far hence, my 5 stars.

I have an apple tree which produces early apples and they don't keep so I thought that drying them would be a good solution. I saw this product and its spec and thought that for the price it was worth trying. I've now used it and found it to be very good value for money. The dried apple slices are full of flavour. The instructions are fine and the controls themselves are intuitive any way. There is a table included, specifying times and temperatures for various products. I look forward to experimenting with other dried foods as the harvest season progresses.

Wasn't sure about getting one of these, especially with the price range being so much less than then the hard core models. But very happy I took the plunge and bought it. One of my best buys. You end up running it for about 12 hours but I have to say its dependent on how thin you slice your fruit swell. It may take longer than the expert hard core expensive machines but this suits my purposes well. I can use just 2 trays if I wish or all 5. Love this machine, it's quiet.

Like a lot of people I found the product arrived really quickly but having read peoples reports I bought at the same time a book to help me. This dehydrator comes with very poor instructions. Like a few other people I have found it takes far longer to dry produce than expected and have wondered if the temperature control is working correctly. Tomatoes have taken 3 times longer than expected. Apples much longer too. Mangoes have gone according to an American recipe. They actually did well although rather messy. My best item has been tomato and apple skins which have then been blitzed so I can add them to sauces etc. Has anyone got ideas as to why it is taking so long to dry products as I have even tried using one tray to see if that would help? I love dried fruit with my breakfast so I was looking forward to drying them when I could get them at a reduced price as I work in a supermarket. I had had my eye on one of the expensive dehydrators but the reviews and my bank account said try this one. Have I made a mistake?????
