as it is one of the top food dehydrators The heater and fan are located at the bottom or top, which causes the food closest to the fan to dry at a different rate than the rest. This means that we should watch when we use a circular dehydrator, because in addition to being foods that are drier than others, they can also become dehydrated from the outside but not from the inside. If this happens, the storage capacity of food is lost and there is a risk of mold.
The only benefit of the circular dehydrator is that you can choose how many trays to use, although it is more economical to always use it at maximum capacity since it consumes the same energy.
The square or rectangular dehydrator usually has the motor / fan in the back (it is important to always check it despite the shape of the dehydrator!). It works by creating a constant flow of hot air that dehydrates evenly, both outside and inside. With these dehydrators it is not necessary to monitor the dehydration cycle, you can be sure that all trays are dehydrated equally. When using both products, we soon notice a large difference between square vs. round dehydrators.
Another advantage of many square dehydrators is that they allow you to remove some of the media trays to create more interior space, allowing you to bake bread, make yogurt and other recipes that require more space.
I want to make healthy snacks like dehydrated fruit and fruit and vegetable rolls:
The new 6, 8 and 10 trays BioChef Arizona dehydrators are perfect for making dehydrated fruits and rolls / crepes of dehydrated fruits and vegetables. The square shape of the appliance allows uniform and continuous drying. If you use a circular dehydrator, you will see that the fruits are crunchy on the outside and slightly moist on the inside. Beware of this result, it is not safe to keep food badly dehydrated!
BioChef dehydrators include fine meshes, ideal for dehydrating vegetables and small fruits such as berries, grapes or peas. And they also include non-stick sheets to get the best result when making rolls or crepes.
The result of the BioChef dehydrators to make dehydrated fruits and vegetables is the same, if you do not know which one to choose, consider the amount of product you want to dehydrate and if it will be more practical to have 6, 8 or 10 trays. The main advantage of the 6 tray BioChef Arizona dehydrator is its much more compact size, ideal for small kitchens! And the advantage of the BioChef models of 8 and 10 trays is that they include timer.
The 9-tray Sedona dehydrator also delivers impeccable results. It includes 9 trays and 9 fine meshes that will allow you to dehydrate more fruits / small vegetables at a time, which you can conserve and consume later.
