Okay so I have an oven, griller, benchtop cooker etc. and now I’m looking at buying a dehydrator to make lots of thing especially garlic salt and powder. What is everyone’s thoughts? I don’t have very much money so very restricted so I don’t know where to even start? Or do you prefer over dehydrating over a dehydrator?

  • yes and also i was going to add, these machines can get quite noisy esp’ when the house is quiet (kids having a sleep lol) but i think that the newer models might be different. You can use your oven for a lot of dehydrating or even try drying things in the sun. We make mango roll-ups in the sun in summer.


  • You can get dehydrators quite cheap but I just don’t like having so many appliances lying around! I think oven dehydrating works well enough for me.


  • Interesting, I don’t think I would get much use out of a dehydrator, but then I said that about the baby bullet and used it every week….


  • you could make your own fruit roll ups


  • I just use the oven or borrow a friends maybe once a year if I have a lot to dry out.

    • Good idea to share with friends. I like the idea of sharing resources as it’s community minded too.


  • I’ve thought about this, but I’m not sure I’d really use it much.


  • Interesting question and will follow the answers as I am interested too.


  • I don’t have it. I know some people that bought it. But after the first months using it, they stop it. So, I don’t know. If you are committed to use it, it’s surely a great product.


  • if it will be useful and you will actually use it buy one. we do jerky

    • Jerky is an interesting idea – is it for you or for pets? (sorry if this seems odd – but I don’t know!)
