The Stockli Dehydrator With Stainless Steel Trays
The design of the Stockli facilitates temperature controlled drying throughout its three deep trays with the option of adding up to seven further trays to increase the drying area. This model has stainless steel mesh trays, so the food doesn’t make contact with any plastics. It dries evenly throughout the tray area with variable, thermostatically controlled drying temperatures from 86° to 158° while using an economical (maximum) 600 watts of power. It features a safety cut-out with automatic reset to prevent accidental damage from overheating in the event that airflow is obstructed for any reason. The 33.5 cm circular base provides a compact footprint for this dehydrator making it ideal where space is at a premium while still offering a substantial drying area.
The baffles on the fan distribute heat more evenly with a clever series of concentric outlets in the base. The lid has a useful time indicator that you can set by hand to indicate either start or finish time for the produce you are drying and the instruction manual gives an easy guide to the art of dehydrating with recipes and drying times. Additional trays can be purchased separately. This dehydrator is also available with a 12 hour integral timer. (see below)
