1. Stainless Steel Drying Trays
The BioChef Food Dehydrator is the first affordable brand of food dehydrators in the world to feature stainless steel trays. Previously only available with high-end and very expensive machines, the BioChef Dehydrators feature this as standard. You can have peace of mind knowing that your food is not in contact with any harmful, BPA leaching materials. The trays are completely dishwasher-safe and stainless steel is non-reactive so can handle acidic foods like tomatoes or citrus without a problem. The outer/inner casing of the dehydrator is made from Polypropylene or PP, widely considered as one of the safest plastics due to its high heat resistance and incredibly strong and durable nature. PP is also completely recyclable.
2. EPT™ Horizontal Drying System
Retain the maximum amount of living nutrients and enzymes from your food and preserve the nutrition with BioChef’s patented Enzyme Protection Technology™. The superior horizontal design draws air in through the back of the unit, where the fan and heating system are located, and is then circulated to the front of the dehydrator ensuring that all trays and both front and back are dried evenly and consistently. Air is vented through the front at the side of the door, keeping a fresh air flowing through the machine at all times. Food is dried more efficiently, and more thoroughly with no “moisture spots” where dangerous mould or bacteria can grow. With the BioChef Arizona’s horizontal drying system there is no need to rotate the trays, you can simply set and forget and all trays will be evenly dried, front to back, top to bottom.
3. 24 Hour Digital Timer
A digital timer allows you to to set the dehydrator to automatically turn itself off after the selected drying cycle. This means you can set the BioChef Food Dehydrator to dehydrate while you are at work, busy or even asleep. Foods will be perfectly dry at the end of the cycle. Plus you can always check on the foods during the cycle through the transparent door.
4. Adjustable Thermostat for Precision Drying
The BioChef Arizona 9 Tray Food Dehydrator features an adjustable thermostat with a temperature range of 35ºC – 70ºC. This means you can set the dehydrator low and slow for maximum retention of living nutrients and enzymes, perfect for raw foodists and living food advocates. The higher temperatures of between 60ºC-70ºC are required for making things like meat or beef jerky, where you want the temperature nice and high to avoid bacteria growth. The BioChef Arizona Dehydrators will make the most perfectly dried beef jerky without the needs for preservatives, or added sodium.
5. 3 Year Manufacturer Warranty
What Can You Make With A Biochef Dehydrator?:
Dehydrators are no longer just a raw food kitchen appliance; this once “niche” product used only by raw foodies is now mainstream. People are coming up with heaps of ideas for recipes to create in them. Dehydrators are perfect for making healthy snacks and treats to eat throughout the working day in the office or elsewhere. They are also great to make fuel for the body when camping or hiking making raw food alternatives or preserving excess fruits, vegetables and herbs or even meat. See below some of our favorite ways to use the BioChef Arizona Food Dehydrator.
1. Dried Fruit & Fruit Leathers
Drying fruits is the most common use for a food dehydrator. The beauty of owning your own dehydrator is that you can experiment with different fruits which you may have never tried dried before such a kiwi fruit, dragon fruit or blueberries. If you were to purchase these in the store they can be extremely expensive and you don’t know what kind of additives or preservatives have been added. Save money by making your own!
Another great snack is fruit leathers or roll ups. Blended fruit (essentially a smoothie) can be dried on a non-stick sheet (one is included with purchase) and will turn into a sticky, chewy and healthy fruit treat for the family!
2. Healthy Snack Alternatives
Replace unhealthy snacks from the pantry with a modern and delicious twist.
Rub some cold pressed olive-,nut- or seed oil in some kale leaves and sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper.
Or slice some sweet potatoes and add same ingredients.
Delicious, guiltfree and healthy snacks are made in no time with the BioChef Arizona.
3. Dehydrated Seed Crackers, Bread Alternatives & Healthy Cookies
Simply blending a combination of seeds, fruits, vegetables, nuts and water can create beautiful cookies, crackers and raw “breads”.
The paste is simply spread onto a non-stick sheet (one is included with purchase) and dehydrated. You can turn something which is usually unhealthy into a nutritious snack or treat for the family to enjoy.
This is especially beneficial for people with gluten or yeast intolerances, as you can make bread alternatives which suit allergies or diets.
4. Make Yoghurt, Rise Bread & Ferment Foods
The BioChef Arizona Dehydrator has a transparent door and removable trays which means that you can remove as many or as little trays as you want to be able to dehydrate a wider variety of things.
You can rise breads or pizza doughs in your Arizona Dehydrator up to the complete height of the unit.
You can fit jars to set yoghurt or ferment foods in a controlled temperature environment and much more!
5. Jerky, Jerky, Jerky!!
Make your own All Natural Homemade Beef Jerky – no nasties, no chemicals. You’ll never go back to store bought jerky again after making your own in the Biochef Dehydrator.
