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.
“Pleasant Hill Grain's customer service is unbelievably excellent. Your sales representatives have vast product knowledge.”

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.
Silicone drying mats can be used on stainless steel or plastic shelving in the Brod & Taylor Sahara food dehdyrator. Drying mats are useful for making fruit leathers. These 10" x 16" mats are sized smaller than the dehydrator's trays to maintain circulation between trays for even drying. Mats are sold separately.
