Add to Cart

The Gardenmaster 8 Tray dehydrator is as powerful as it is large! It comes with 8 trays and can expand to 30 trays, with 1000 watts of drying power; so you can dry in hours versus days. The quiet, 2,400-RPM motor and specially designed 4-1/2 inch quiet patented Converga-Flow fan forces heated air up the exterior pressurized chamber, then horizontally across each individual tray in the center for fast and even drying. No need to rotate the trays! The adjustable thermostat meets the needs of different foods, will adjust between 90 and 150 degree and the drying pressure adjusts automatically to the number of trays you are using. The opaque Vita-Save Exterior blocks light to retain more of the food's nutrients and vitamins during the drying process. The base and drying trays can be completely immersed in water for easy cleaning. 

Includes 160-page soft-cover How to Dry Foods book by home-economist Deanna DeLong. The book contains lots of recipes, hints, and tips; covers the history, methods, and equipment for drying; and includes sections on fruit, fruit leathers, vegetables, herbs and spices, nuts and seeds, meat, and fish. Now you can save money by making your own jerky, dried fruits, vegetable, trail mix and more.
