The Sahara™ Folding Dehydrator is the world’s only food dehydrator that folds to 1/3 its size for storage. Sahara delivers over 11 ft² (1 m² ) of drying area, digitally-controlled 750W dual heaters, quiet and high-efficiency circulating airflow, filtered air intake, automated dual time/temperature controls, stainless steel, and glass doors.
I USED A FEW dehydrators in my life and this is the best.
I bought this in May, and decided on this over the Excal***r because I liked the idea of stainless steel trays and the nicely sealing glass doors (and sure, it's neat that it folds up but I've not folded it up yet because I use it a lot). I've dried a lot of average-sized (not huge) cherry tomatoes, cut in half, not touching each other, and while the directions say 135 degrees for 8-10 hours mine were still very much wet at that point. I've found the only way to get them dry is 140 degrees for 16-18 hours (depending on how humid it is). Now I'm questioning if I made the right choice, or maybe something is just wrong with my unit.
I use my 1st Sahara so much I bought a second one to do bigger batches. My pups love dehydrated sweet potatoes for their daily treats. This time I bought the storage case. So easy to store.

The World's First Folding Dehydrator
Patented Dual Sensors and Dual Heaters.
At 750W, the heating system has plenty of power for the largest loads of fresh fruit or the high temperatures needed for drying meat. The dual-heater system automatically switches to low power for more efficient operation when food is partially dry or for lower temperatures when drying raw food.
Quiet efficient fan. Fresh filtered air.
Optimized air circulation is provided by a quiet, highly efficient radial fan that balances a mixture of fresh and recirculated air to enhance food drying and energy efficiency. A washable and re-useable air filter ensures that dirt and contaminants are not drawn into the dehydrator.
“The Brod & Taylor SAHARA Folding Dehydrator and the Folding Proofer and Slow Cooker are essential to what I do. I’ve used these tools nearly every day since I got them. If you’re at all interested in doing bread, fermentation, dehydrating, or just about anything interesting in your cooking, then you need to have these in your kitchen.”
The Slim Palate
“I recently received the new Brød & Taylor Sahara Food Dehydrator, a superbly designed dehydrator that eliminates the reason why I’ve not bought one previously: this one folds up into a compact little package for storage."
The Perfect Loaf
“The first ever folding dehydrator! I love my Sahara Dehydrator because not only is it one of the most powerful dehydrators, but it’s also the first ever to be folding. Most dehydrators are very big and bulky. This design is a game changer and makes it so anyone can enjoy dehydrating at home without worrying about kitchen space.”
