Dehydrators from the world's leading brands
Having a dehydrator in your home opens up a whole new realm of health food and snack making using the oldest and simplest preservation process since time began, that of air drying produce to increase lifespan you can maintain the nutritional integrity of your home made healthy snacks and edibles.
Dehydrators all work in a very similar way, they use a heater and fan in tandem to raise internal temperature and to circulate air to speed up the drying process and do away with the variables associated with sun or air drying. All our dehydrating equipment will handle a variety of produce and meats so you can make your own jerky or biltong.
There are two fundamental types of dehydrator, the draw style and the stacking type, the more expensive dehydrators tend to be of the drawer style these are more elaborate and harder to manufacture in that the drawers slide in and out of the main housing and the fan and heater element are housed in the back or end of the machine. This lends itself to even air distribution throughout the unit and very controllable, predictable dehydrating results. The stacking type of dehydrator tend to be cheaper and have stacking layers that build up the surface area of the dehydrating space, but the fan and heater tend to be in the bottom or chassis of the unit, this inevitably results in warmer drier air in the bottom of the machine that rises to become cooler and more humid as it rises through picking up moisture from the produce being dried.
The L’equip filter pro is an interesting addition to the stacking class of dehydrator as it has a central chimney design to aid air circulation and give class leading performance from the stacker design of unit. The Filter Pro also has a neat air filter and digital control.
The King of the dehydrators is without doubt the excalibur range of drawer style units, these machines are well made and have both timer and thermostat so you can set your dehydrator up to a specified temperature and run time then carry on with your day! Great if you have solar power on your roof so you can use that sun energy to power your healthy snack making! Tribest are also a great manufacturer that are offering a range of professional range of stainless steel dehydrators that look great and perform really well.
