I'm eager to start cooking again and I'd like to incorporate an organic, natural, healthy diet into my life as well as my bf's. I'm thinking of getting a food dehydrator to dehydrate fruit to snack and was wondering if anyone else has one and if so what they use theirs for. Peace & Love!!

We had a small scale industrial food dehydrator in our chem e lab in college... works great. If you like banana and apple chips you can't go wrong... there was definitely some trial and error as well as some experimentation to get things not gooey or burnt... but that was for an that one..



so is this unit your looking at just vacuum or does it also heat???

Thanks Jenna!! I did do a search before I posted this. I just wanted to know if there were other things I could use a dehydrator for besides making banana/apple chips. I spose I could google.

I wanna get one to make my own backpacking food. They have the American Harvester one at Sportsman's Warehouse for $30. The only downside is that I have to go into Sportsman's Warehouse to purchase it (all the dead animals on the walls creep me out.)

I've done dried fruit, kale chips, raw crackers, and fruit leather in mine so far If you are interested in branching out, raw recipe sites have a lot of unique ideas for dehydrating.

We use ours for drying pears! It takes about a day, but they turn out really well.
