Brod and Taylor Sahara Folding Dehydrator

Dried food in Sahara folding dehydratorWe've been informed that a price increase on the Sahara dehydrator is coming in January. Act now to beat the hike!

The revolutionary new Sahara Folding Dehydrator is the most convenient dehydrator on the market! It's the world's only dehydrator that will fold to just 1/3 its size for compact storage. The Sahara unfolds to offer over 15 square feet of drying area, with stainless steel or sturdy polypropylene plastic shelving. Glass doors offer an attractive front that gives you a full view of drying progress.

The Sahara dehydrator comes with 7 large drying shelves, each 21" x 13", for a total of 15.89 square feet of drying area. It has a strong 4" diameter fan for serious airflow, and a 750 watt heater. Temperature is adjustable between 86° and 165° F, and the dehydrator measures 22"W x 14.75"D x 11"H in use. Folds to a compact size of 22" x 12.5" x 3.5”. Shelves are stored in an included case when the dehydrator is folded. Food contact parts of the Brod & Taylor Sahara dehydrator are BPA-free, and dishwasher safe. A tray at the bottom of the dehydrator can be removed to easily clean up anything that dripped or fell during the drying process.

  • “Your customer service is the best. All companies could learn from you and your employees. Very courteous and prompt.”

    – Stacey, SD

With quiet, high efficiency airflow that combines recirculated air with filtered fresh air, the Sahara provides completely steady and even temperatures. Sahara’s dual heaters run at full power when needed, but automatically switch to low power mode for increased efficiency and better temperature control.

Low-temp oven option: The Brod & Taylor dehydrator features a full cabinet and can be operated with any number of shelves—or no shelves at all. This gives you the option of using it as a low-temperature oven and for unconventional purposes like drying damp boots or mittens!

The dual time and temperature selections allow you to easily select two different times and temperatures at once. The Sahara can run automatically for up to 198 hours.

  • Best Kitchen Purchase!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We use our dehydrator weekly, if not every-other-day for numerous snacks and/or kitchen projects. We can't recommend it enough! We previously had an Excalibur model that was much noisier, took up 60% more room, and didn't seal well, thus increasing the drying time. This machine is much more efficient, even when using all the racks, as well as quiet in comparison.

  • unless you need to save space get a regular dehydrator
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have had this dehydrator for about 6 months now. It's easy to assemble and disassemble. However, I would not recommend it unless you need to save space. My first issue with dehydrator is its ability to make use of its available space. If you are drying smaller items and using the dehydrating sheets the drying space in this dehydrator shrinks by about 30 percent. meaning you can get a smaller dehydrator and accomplish the same thing. 2. Over time the doors of the dehydrator do not close properly creating loss in efficiency.

    Brod and Taylor explains that the sheets are actually sized as they are to preserve between-shelf circulation, which is critical for uniform drying. And uniform drying is extremelhy important because without that you either wind up with a large portion of your food that won't keep, or else you wait through excess drying time (and wasted energy and energy cost), and then much of your food is seriously over-dried. Prioritizing evenness of drying is more efficient both for your time and for quality finished product. Thank you very much for your review!
