Food dehydrators offer an easy way to make your own jerky, fruit crisps and vegetable crisps. The Excalibur models are regarded as the world's best dehydrators, and are ideal for small restaurant use. Line with Paraflexx sheets to dehydrate fruit purees and make your own fruit leathers. The Hendi dehydrators are lightweight and stackable, making them particularly suitable for home use.
Dehydrators are brilliant for anyone living a raw or paleo lifestyle. The dehydrators operate at temperatures high enough to kill bacteria, but low enough that they don't actually cook food. They're also a great way to deal with a surplus of homegrown fruit or vegetables - dehydrate them in slices, and stay stocked with snacks all year round.
