A commercial food dehydrator is great for making vegetable chips or beef jerky. When you buy a commercial food dehydrator, you’ll want to consider a few things: how much will you be dehydrating in every batch? And how many batches will you make a day. This will dictate whether you go with a light duty, medium duty, or heavy duty commercial food dehydrator.
All types of commercial food dehydrators will be able to withstand the demands of a commercial kitchen, or even if you’re just making beef jerky for your local farmer’s market. These dehydrators will retain the flavour of your food, without having to add in a bunch of unhealthy additives. These are pretty compact machines, so you can put it on your countertop or you can place it away somewhere in a cabinet and bring it out only when you need it.
And unlike processed meat, you’re not going to have any strange, smokey unnatural flavours: dehydrating food is as old as time, so this process is healthy and delicious.
If you want your dehydrated meat or vegetables to be extra delicious, marinade them before putting them into the dehydrator. When you place your meat or vegetables into the dehydrator, it will have a timer that you can set, so that you don’t overheat it. And also consider how many shelves you’ll need.
