Dehydrator Buyer's Guide


We were curious as to why people bought dehydrators. So we asked our wonderful customers – Why did you buy a dehydrator?

The top 2 answers were;

1/ To make healthy snacks for the kids school lunch box.

2/ To make sure home grown organic produce did not go to waste.


A proper food dehydrator is one of the must-haves in your kitchen. It especially comes in handy for people with the “Green thumb” who grow their own fruits and vegetables. Dried fruits and vegetables are the way of the future and its market is waiting to be explored. Food Dehydrating preserves the food while leaving all the minerals and nutrients intact.

It is also great for families that have children as dehydrated fruits and vegetables make for a great snack and it’s a way parents can sneak in those healthy veggies into their kid's lunchboxes without them kicking up a fuss. Dried fruits can make healthy treats such as granola bars and can be sprinkled on the kid's breakfast cereal.
