Product Description

This 1 Zone / 16 Tray / 2.56m² Tray Area fully stainless-steel dehydrator is made for ongoing commercial use with (16) 40x40cm trays and our high-efficiency forced air convection system, you can dehydrate your food at industrial rates. This gives you a total of over 2.5 m² of dehydrating rack space.

This model comes with a 99-hour digital timer and adjustable temperature of 30-90 degrees Celsius or ambient mode. With a limited 1.5kW power draw, this highly efficient model pulls up to 50% less energy than other models on the market for the same dry times. Run-on "Timer" mode if you desire for it to shut off automatically.

Our Food Grade 304 Stainless Steel mesh trays allow food to cook evenly on both sides without the need to rotate or turn food over while dehydrating. If you need solid trays for things like flour and grains just let us know or simply apply wax or baking paper to the mesh trays. Perfect for fruits, nuts, jerky, biltong, vegetables, and more.

Free Standard Shipping - Is included Australia wide and usually takes between 3-14 days depending on your location and size of the freight. Standard shipping includes standard transit cover in case of any freight loss or damage. 

Free Standard Shipping + Premium Transit Cover - Purchasing premium transit cover at checkout will offer instant protection against freight loss and damage. Without premium transit cover, any freight loss and damage that may occur must go through an investigation process by the supplier, and the freight company, to determine fault and responsibility. Once the investigation has concluded (usually around 2-6 weeks), restitution is performed. Purchasing premium transit cover skips the investigation process and will provide instant restitution to the purchaser, when a freight issue arises.
