What is Food Dehydration all About

Food dehydration is a very long standing way of preserving food. In modern times, food dehydration machines have been developed, allowing people to dehydrate their food at home.
Dehydrators work by removing the moisture from food thus allowing them to last for much longer.

Because the water is removed at a very low temperature, the nutrients and enzymens of the food are not destroyed and that's why dehydrated food is seen as part of the healthy food movement.

How do you use a food dehydrator?
1. Wash and dry the foods you want to dehydrate
2. Arrange the slices on trays. Try and avoid overlapping.
3. Set the temperature using the guide. Generally the lower the temperature the greater the preservation of vitamins and nutrients.
4. Keep an eye on the trays, turning them in the dehydrator.
5. It can take anything from a couple of hours up to a day to dehydrate food, depending on the moisture levels.
6. When the food is ready store it in airtight plastic bags or containers.

Enjoy experimenting with your food dehydrator. It's fun for kids as well and is a great way of preserving fruit and vegetables when you've overbought or can see food would otherwise go to waste.

I have a LEM 778 10 try stainless steel food dehydrator the machine when running runs okay until the end when product is almost dry then the fan motor turns off and still hear the motor running. Heat and...

Most of these stainless dehydrators have a cheap timer which uses plastic gears turned by an electric motor to operate the machine. After being on for a while the whole timer will heat up and the gears unside will begin deflecting and failing. When this happens the only thing to do is wait for it to cool down and see if it works again. Eventually it will fail completely and the machine will jus tstart shutting down halfway through cooking.

It is possible to bypass the timer and use an outlet timer, but each model of machine is wired slightly differently. You would have to consult a knowledgeable electrician.

There are newer models on the market which have digital timers. These work muuuuch better, but the fa

Try turning off the circuit for a minute, then set timer again.
Often a little picture/icon of a "baking tray with heat" when timer is passing power on to the thermostat.
Also, those timers fail often enough, is the oven brand new (or recent blackout)?

My North Bay Food Dehydrator has vents on top & bottom. I need the settings for dehydrating Hot Peppers. Can you tell me where to find the settings?

You will need to experiment with the settings on your individual machine to know which setting achieves what temperature, but when you do the attached photo will give you a good range of temperatures for each type of food i.e. Meat/Fruit/herbs/etc 1_4_2014_3_42_47_pm.png

How do i set timer to turn lights off and on

If I understand correctly, you have Intermatic electro-mechanical timer that has a yellow clock dial on front
And you want to set the timer to turn lights on and off
And your wiring is correct and the manual override turns the lights on-and-off correctly

To set timer:
Pull dial back toward you. Rotate clock dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
On other brands of timer, you rotate dial until current time lines up with an arrow or the word 'time' located on lower right of clock dial
Timer has on-off trippers that fit outer edge of dial.
Intermatic trippers are labeled ON and OFF
Other brands of timer have dark and light-colored trippers >> I think the dark trippers on some brands are OFF

Place 'off' tripper when you want timer to turn off
Place 'on' tripper when you want timer to turn on
Turn on electricity and expect timer to run for 20 years
Dial has to be re-set to current time after power outage

I would like to find a users manual - with recipes - for a Hamilton Beach food dehydrator

To my knowledge Hamilton Beach does not make a Food Dehydrator. Please double-check the brand.
In the meantime, here are links to some sites with dehydration instructions and recipes.

Since your post is under the heading for the Prepstar Food Processor, I feel the need to provide the link for that user manual (just in case). The pdf user manual with recipes for the Prepstar 70550 Food Processor is at the followig site:

Let me know if you need anything else. Good Luck!

My Salton Food dehydrator just stopped working. Turned it on for the first time today and it remained on for about 10 minutes and now wont turn back on.

If this is a Salton dehydrator that stopped working why are you referencing Gardenmaster dehydrators which is Nesco/American Harvest?

My Brand new GE model DBXR463 does not start. I plugged it into 110 volts AC. The manual says single phase 120/240 V and I have 25amp circuit. When start is pressed nothing is happening. Somehow, I think...

If this is brand new i assume you will have warranty..First of all try the plug fuse, next make sure the voltage setting is correct for your area, I note what you say on this! check a timer properly you would need a diagram and multimeter,I wish you well good luck
