The Tribest Sedona Supreme follows on from earlier Sedona models with the electronic sophistication of twin stage sequential drying controls, but with the simpler format of a single box design with one powerful fan and a more commercial focus. For us there’s not much else to set it apart as a commercial model except the stainless steel trays, but we do like the relative simplicity. It makes more sense to us as a premium home use variant in the range.
The reputation for being acceptably quiet in operation continues in the Sedona Supreme, the drying programming is pretty straightforward after a quick familiarisation, and the larger fan shifts a reassuring amount of freshly filtered air over your dehydrator ingredients. There’s a spare washable air filter in the box to ensure continuous clean air drying and with all the sophistication of the programming options, precision control of every stage of the process is at your fingertips. We suspect though that in many commercial environments the continuous use function will be just as helpful, with chef deciding on the temperature and determining timing based on what he or she sees through the large glass door. Another nice feature is the internal LED downlighter that illuminates proceedings automatically when you pull down the glass door.
Tribest products are not cheap and we understand the attraction of the various technologies they develop but in this case we question how much they actually achieve over a standard horizontal dehydrator with a countdown timer? That depends on how hands on you want to be with the dehydrating process. Some hobbyists and enthusiasts will love the fine tuning and the repeatability of successful results that the digital control has to offer. You can still do twin sequential timing with a standard dehydrator though – you just can’t program the second stage before the first one finishes! Certainly in our opinion there are more solid options for the many small scale commercial dehydrating businesses who often have simple requirements. If you are making say kale chips, dog treats or beef jerky on an artisanal commercial level, then an option like the all stainless model found here makes a lot more sense. However, as a sophisticated premium home use model with a huge repertoire, The Tribest Sedoma Supreme Commercial Dehydrator is a great choice.
