Desiccation & dehydration – simple and gentle preserving with hot air
2 dehydration shelves as add-on kit
Fruit, vegetables, mushrooms and herbs dehydrate evenly in the hot air stream, completely without any preserving agents. Vitamins, nutriments and minerals get preserved, flavouring substances concentrate. Perfect for making dried ingredients for cereals, soups, sauces, teas and snacks, but also for natural decorating materials made of dried fruits etc.

How do I clean the appliance? Can some parts be put into the dishwasher? The plastic surface is VERY smooth, thus having great non-stick properties. Therefore do not use sharp objects or strong cleaning agents to clean the dehydration shelves. We also recommend not to put them in the dishwasher, as dishwasher salts might also damage/corrode smooth surfaces. The shelves do not have any edges or grid holes. This allows for convenient cleaning. Simply fill the shelves with water and add a little detergent, stack them and let them soak, before cleaning with a soft dishcloth or sponge. When working with foods that have dyeing properties (carrots, tomatoes or beetroot) you might want to avoid staining of the shelves by placing a sheet of backing between the food and the shelve. Stains from e. g. carrots are unproblematic and can mostly be removed with vegetable oil and/or backing powder.
Are the shelves BPA-free? Yes, all parts that come into contact with food are BPA-free.
Does the time necessary for dehydrating increase when I am using more than 4 shelves at once? No, the time for dehydration does not depend on the number of shelves used.
Do I need dehydration foils/pads or baking paper to make fruit leather or similar treats? No, you do not need dehydration foils or baking paper when using ROMMELSBACHER food dehydrators as the dehydration shelves do not have any edges or grid holes. We use very smooth plastic for our shelves. When processing foods having dyeing properties (like carrots, tomatoes or beetroot) you might still want to use baking paper to avoid staining of the shelves. This however is not strictly necessary as such stains usually disappear with time or can be removed with some vegetable oil.
