There are definitely a lot of factors that are caused by a food dehydrator, one example is the removal or moisture in the food through the air flow and heat. It has been known that food dehydrators has air flow which are designed in a vertical or horizontal manner. It so happened that the horizontal air flow food dehydrators embodies a fan and a heating elements which can be found only on one side of the dehydrator. It has also been known that in the horizontal air flow dehydrators, there are drying trays that are arranged like drawers inside the food dehydrator in order for it to hold foods. Simply saying, compared to the vertical air flow dehydrators, the horizontal ones are much more better in dehydrating different types of food and it is also beneficial since it mixes the food flavors less than compared to the vertical air flow dehydrators. If you also want to keep everything clean and make the cleaning much more convenient for you, then you should resort to a horizontal air flow dehydrators since it helps stop the food juices from dripping down so that it won’t cause any dirt and mess. Vertical air flow dehydrators have their heating element and fan located at the base of the dehydrator. A vertical air flow dehydrator also happens to have its drying trays positioned on the top of the base. Because the drying trays and food are stacked on top of the heating element, drying temperatures can vary between the top and bottom food drying trays.
Vertical air flow dehydrators may require a swapping of top and bottom drying trays, during the dehydrating process, so that an even drying effect is achieved across all the food and drying trays.
A food dehydrator without a thermostat will dehydrate at a constant, unchanging heat, but at a potentially increasing temperature inside the dehydrator. Due to dehydration inside, food can become hard which is basically tough on the outside, yet the inside is full of moist and bacteria.
