Commercial Dehydrator

Commercial Dehydrator

You might think that most dehydrators are the same: 5 trays, weighing about 5 lbs, about 10 inches in height. This view is entirely wrong, as there are many models of normal and commercial food dehydrator out there, designed to produce large batches of dried foods at any one time.

Manufacturers such as Excalibur concentrate on commercial food dehydrators, which have anywhere up to 45 drying trays and appear more like a refrigerator appliance than a small tabletop one. If your needs are not quite this large then you can still purchase tabletop dehydrators, with around 10 to 15 trays and a 26 hour timer that allows you to leave them to run on their own, without causing over-drying or cooking.

You can buy a standard dehydrator for commercial use, but you should be aware that its warrantee will probably not be covered for it. If it breaks within the warrantee, then you will not be able to claim a refund or free repair. A dehydrator that is advertised as commercial should have commercial use written into the warrantee, but you should always check this before buying.

A commercial dehydrator can be a fantastic investment even for the average family who intend to sell dried goods at fairs or carnivals. It’s not just food than can be dried in them either; flowers can be dried for art and clay can be dried for jewelry and ornaments if you are artistically inclined. There are many ways to make money from dehydrated goods, and that’s not to mention the money you save from buying dried foods from the health food store too.

If you’re unsure of whether you will need commercial dehydrators or a simple kitchen dehydrator, then we recommend you ask to borrow a friend’s for a week, or ask someone who already has one and who is following the same ventures as you. Alternatively, you could try building your own homemade food dehydrator for a minimal cost, to see how much you will be using it and whether you need more than the standard 5 to 7 trays.
