The kitchen-friendly compact footprint of the Sedona Express Dehydrator will appeal to many dehydrator enthusiasts but it still offers almost 10 square feet of drying area for a full load of all 11 trays. The gap between trays is approximately 1″ or 25mm. Tribest Dehydrator technology is about as advanced as it gets, with fully computerised control of its many clever features. The TST or two stage timer feature allows you to set a higher temperature in the early stage of drying to speed up drying without risking damage to nutrients, followed by a longer second stage at nutrient friendly temperatures. There’s a simple ‘raw mode’ drying feature for raw fooders and you can set the timers for any period up to 99 hours. There’s also a continuous mode if you want to decide yourself when the Sedona Express should switch off, when your recipes are at the perfect dryness for your needs.
Following L’Equip’s lead, Tribest are only the second manufacturer out there to offer clean air food dehydration, by the addition of an air filter behind the drying fan. The filter is washable and there’s a spare in the box for changeover time. As well as making it easy to monitor progress in the dehydrator, the tempered glass door on the Sedona Express has an integral auto cut out switch to turn off the fan and heater when the door is opened, while switching on the internal inspection light at the same time. Tribest call this a ‘smart dehydrator’ but you can’t actually use it to surf the web! There is a usb port on the back though, for any possible future upgrades to its dehydrator brain. The Sedona Express is a premium dehydrator in our range, aimed primarily at raw food fans who prefer a more compact model for their kitchen. Highly recommended.
