Crawford Kitchen Commercial Food Dehydrator
Crawford Kitchen DHTCKKSTY is the new heavy duty professional grade all stainless steel 650 watt power food dehydrator that helps you dry a variety of ingredients- meats, beef jerky, fruits, fruit leathers, veggies, berries, nuts, herbs, make yoghurt and cheese and more very efficiently with its 7 inch removable rear mounted fan that generates even horizontal flow of air on its 10 trays of 16 x 14 inches / 16 square feet of drying space. While other competition dehydrators do the job by using a 1000-1500 watt power motors, this one performs the same way or better by only using 650 watts, thanks to its second generation efficient design.
On the LCD panel you will see the power button, digital timer with up and down arrows that can be set up to 15 hours, temperature that can be set between 95 and 155 degrees Fahrenheit (35 to 70 degrees Celcius), Dehydrating Guide for Jerky, Meat & Fish, Fruits, Veggies and Herbs as well as some simple guidelines for dehydrating properly: Food slices should be uniform in size- 1/4 inch thick or less, use lean meats for making jerky and slice it at 3/16 inch thickness, no overlapping of slices on trays, dehydrate using the temperature chart and the drying time will depend on thickness, ambient humidity, and moisture level. It is great that you can set the time and temperature on the digital panel for different items and that these will be kept precisely throughout the dehydration process so you get the same great results consistently.
Crawford Kitchen Dehydrator weighs 29 pounds and measures 20 x 17.5 x 15 inches, looks rather premium and professional in all stainless steel and with the smart LCD panel with touch controls. Stainless steel means all stainless steel for the whole body and trays that are simple to clean and will last longer- not decay like the chrome plated or plastic trays. It has been improved according to the needs of domestic and professional kitchens: 1.
Power usage is half at 650 watts versus 1200 watts and more in the previous models while the dehydrating performance stays the same, which means you will spend less overall for your healthy and tasty dehydrated snacks. 2. Sturdy stainless steel dehydration plates will not decay over time or with frequent use like trays that are made of other materials like chrome plating and will also be able to handle the demands and needs of a professional kitchen.
