Thread: Food Dehydrator

  1. #1

    Default Food Dehydrator

    Thinking about getting a food dehydrator and experimenting with fruits/vegt. Anyone been using one and had good luck with making light foods. I've heard that you loose nutrients and vitamins by dehydtrating. Looking for alternatives.

    Trick is to dry--not cook. I make my own dehydrators. Read a book where the author said you cant make a reliable homemade unit so I proceeded to make about 15 so far. Never seem to keep a finished one for my self for very long. Have never sold one yet they just seem to disappear.

    Mtnmickey, that sounds like a good project. Could you share the name of the book or how you go about making a dehydrator?

    He stated the book claimed that you can't build a reliable dehydrator. That is not a book you should spend time with. Humans have been DIY dehydrating food longer than there have been books on Earth.

    Member Rancid Crabtree has a great thread down on the either the cooking forum or make it yourself forum. A stunning dehydrator out of spare parts.
