Dehydrators can transform raw food in many ways. I recommend Excalibur dehydrators for quality, evenness of drying, and versatility. Be sure to purchase a dehydrator that allows for you to dry relatively large areas, and be sure to purchase Teflex sheets so you can dehydrate liquids.
- If you are able to afford it, I recommend this 9-tray dehydrator. It is the one I have used for several years now, and its quality is fantastic. You can make large batches of several types of food at the same time.
- If you are constrained by cost or space, here is a less expensive 6-tray dehydrator by Ivation.
- If you are just looking to make fruit jerkies and similar snacks, here is an inexpensive but excellent quality dehydrator by Nesco.
