Great for drying Ginger and Tumeric.

published

We bought this dehydrator on ebay from Vitality4life in late July. Whilst we have only used it a few times so far, we have been extremely pleased with the results. We grow a lot of ginger and tumeric, and have used the dehydrator for this purpose. The ginger and tumeric dry for 10 hours, and then we put the dried chips in a food processor to end up with ginger and tumeric powder, which is so much better than what you buy in the supermarket. The BioChef is relatively quiet, easy to operate, and portable. We used all 9 drying shelves. We have now tried it to dry sweet potato, so it will get plenty of use.

Purchased in for $300.

Okay not as good as I was expecting

I find the dehydrators dries the back rows excellent but the front rows have to be turned around - I was hoping to put trays in and it dry evenly but I have not found that ..

Overpriced for what it is

published

I use the dehydrator as a device for drying circuit boards after cleaning, curing protective lacquer, etc. It's poor value for money and cheaply made, but works well. The circuit board inside is exposed to the heat inside the unit, which isn't going to help the lifespan of the components, and using a relay to control the heating element is about the cheapest way it could be done. Considering the price, it could and should be of a better design.

Purchased in at Appliances Online for $349.

Perfect jerky

published

After doing research around on the best dehydrators (at a budget level under $300) I came to this machine. It dries the food perfectly evenly and efficiently. My first batch of jerky turned out perfect. Very easy to use machine - the digital view is great, and the machine is constructed with very high build quality. The sliding doors and steel trays are fantastic, very easy to clean. I upgraded from the white circular sunbeam machine (which was terrible and noisy). This one is very quiet compared to that. Very happy with this purchase, definitely recommend it to others. Looking forward to making plenty more batches of jerky and other dried fruit.

Great workmanship, great product.

published

The BioChef 6 tray that we purchased works every time. Made some great beef jerky, which was our main reason for purchasing, and now looking to expand into fruits and vegies. Ease of operation, and ease of access are good. I would not hesitate in recommending BoiChef to anyone we know.

Not what I expected

published

The machine worked well but I don’t think it was what I wanted. I had hoped for crunchy veggies but got pliable leathery veggies. Perhaps I wanted freeze dried? But a quiet easy to use machine. Apples and bananas worked well tho I dried for a bit in the oven to get some crunch.

Quiet and quick

published

Dehydrator is so quiet compared to my previous one. Very easy to use, great to be able to look at produce through clear door, now I just have to perfect my timing so that fruit is not too dry. Highly recommend for value, efficiency and quietness. The wire mesh tray works a treat to stop items from sticking.

Great to hear you are enjoying the dehydrator so much. Drying times depend on thickness, ambient temperature, freshness of ingredient and so on. Just it really is quite a process of experimenting. All the best with it:)

Brilliant dehydrator

published

10 trays mean I can dehydrate lots of different things at the same time, saving me money & time. I love the using the mesh trays for my beef jerky as the spices don't fall to the bottom of the dehydrator, love them so much I bought one for every tray!

Great to hear you are utilising the mesh sheets Sharon, they really do give you the best result for anything non-liquid - and easy clean up. Enjoy dehydrating and thank you for your feedback from the BioChef Team

Does it consume a lot of power

JULIE W

Hi Evelyn it definitely uses less power than cheaper brands because of its efficiency. Previously I might have to dehydrate 5-8 hrs in my old dehydrated where I mostly average 4 hrs with this model.

Hi Vicki sorry have no idea! The buttons are abit clunky and that would be my only criticism. I have to press hard and then use the +or - buttons and it works every time. Hope BioChef can resolve your issue.
