Why Dehydrate

Drying is easy

A wide variety of fresh foods can be dried: fruits, vegetables, fish and meats. These foods can be eaten dried for snacks and parties, or reconstituted for cooking and baking. Drying is easier than canning or freezing: you simply wash, slice and load food onto the dehydrator trays. Within hours your foods are dried and ready to eat or store.

Drying can save you money

A Dehydrator allows you to purchase and dry foods in peak seasons when prices are lowest - a great saving compared to the high cost of commercial dried products. Best of all, operating a dehydrator costs only cents a days and dried foods don't require continual electricity to be maintained as with freezing.

Dried foods taste great and are nutritious

As food dries, natural food flavours and sugars tend to concentrate - giving dried foods a sweeter and stronger burst of flavour than fresh foods. Dried foods are nutritous, too! Drying preserves important nutrients that cooking often destroys. And since you don't add sugar or other additives, dried foods make delicious and healthy snacks for your family.

Dried foods store easily

Dried foods take up less space than canned or frozen foods because when you remove the moisture, food shrinks in size. They store in any convenient airtight container or pack and are lightweight - just right for lunchboxes, backpacks or camping trips.

The Parallexx Advantage

The fan, heating element, and adjustable thermostat are mounted in the rear.

Cool air is drawn in the back, heated up, and distributed evenly across each

tray. During the dehydration process, warm air removes moisture from foods

 and is pushed out the front of the machine.
