Rosewill 6-Tray Food Dehydrator, RHFD-18001
Black Rosewill RHFD-18001 is a hot new release 12.7 quarts capacity (12-liter) 6-tray food dehydrator with a 1000-watt power motor (120 Volts and 60 Hertz) and quick drying double fans. It includes 6 food-grade 304 stainless steel drying racks and can be expanded to 12 drying rack layers (optional purchase).
You can dry fruits, veggies, herbs, fish, meat, tofu, potpourri, make beef jerky and a variety of healthy snacks without any chemicals or preservatives added, re-crisp crackers, make pet foods and even homemade yoghurt. The racks measure 15 x 13 inches each and offer several non-stick mesh screen layers for different ingredients.
The heat is distributed evenly and thoroughly with the optimal horizontal airflow of the efficient dual fans at the back. And there is the energy saving single upper fan. You will not need to turn the racks over during dehydrating and there won’t be any overheating. Two dehydration speeds are available on the display panel, slow and quick, which will also help with saving on energy bills. Please note that the slow mode is 500W and the fast mode is 1000W.
You can adjust the time and temperature easily on the digital timer and thermostat on the display panel. The time can be set up to 99 hours and the temperature range is between 95 and 167 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature can be increased or decreased with the dual stage sequential timer combo mode to help prevent the mold growth and food hardening. You’ll have very natural, tasty and healthy dried foods and snacks without any additives, in an economical way and save money by not getting dried snacks from the shops.
Black Rosewill RHFD-18001 weighs just around 22 pounds and measures 20H x 15.7W x 13.8D inches. There is plenty of room in this 12-liter capacity dehydrator, so you can do a large amount in one go even though it is not very big on the outside. It is very easy to operate and has a simple design that works well and is easy to clean once you’re done with dehydrating.
You can see the dehydration process through its tempered transparent glass door without needing to open it. You’ll hear a bit of a fan noise when it is working, but nothing over the top. It will kind of remind you it is on. As an ETL certified unit it is safe to use and comes with security features like the Overheating Safety Protection, so you do not need to worry about security. If you like preserving foods and making healthy snacks with a food-grade unit at home without the preservatives and have the budget for it, you can certainly have a look at the Rosewill 6-tray Food Dehydrator. It is a great product at a fair price at Amazon.com and offers great value for money.
