OVEN/SUN FOOD DRYING RACK DESCRIPTION

Preserve the Harvest by Drying It!

Easy - Just wash, slice and load any fruit, vegetable, herb or meat into dehydrator and leave. The gentle process takes several hours. (Precise times aren't important because you can't "overdry".)

Saves money - Dry foods during peak season - when garden produce is plentiful and prices are lowest - with the least amount of work. No canning lids, freezer boxes, boiling water or expensive appliances.

Locks in nutrients - USDA tests proved dehydrated foods lose only 3-5% of nutritional value. Compare with canning (60-80% loss) or freezing (40-60% loss). No additives or damaging temperatures – Properly dried and stored food lasts up to five years and takes up little space. Just seal in any jar and place in a cool, dark area.

Oven drying - Uses only the heat from a gas pilot light or electric oven interior light. (Needs about 105° F to 140° F.)

Sun drying - Remove trays from dryer and elevate for free air circulation. Dry foods on a windowsill, on a porch, in a greenhouse, or even in the trunk of a car!

"Works perfectly, outstanding wood construction, dries herbs wonderfully (that's all I've used it for so far). I did buy some other food grade dryer screens and place them on top of the fiberglass screens (just in case the fiberglass screens would eventually cause particulate matter to sluff-off into my foods). I used it in my oven with the oven light and the drying was absolutely perfect (and quite energy efficient). I love this dryer!!! Thank you Lehman's!!!"

"This food dehydrator works great!! It is very well crafted and larger than I thought it would be. I just recently purchased it and have already used it to dry banana chips, tomatoes and apple slices. It works better than I thought it would. I have used it outside and in the oven over night. I think I prefer the oven method. Definitely this is going to be a great Christmas gift, as I plan to buy another one!"
