I bought this dehydrator after using another cheaper brand for a while. The old one got to where it took way too long to dry anything. I decided to try the Sahara and I really like it. The first time it took a long time to dry some rosemary, but the second time, I tried the two-temperature method, and it worked great. I will probably use that method going forward. I like that the Sahara folds and is easy to store as well. I really hesitated because of the price, but so far the Sahara has been worth it.
We think your dehydrator is perfect
This machine was easy to set up, use, clean up and store. I'm very pleased. Made kale chips. Jerky is next. Hoping to use this for garden bounty next summer.
This is simply the best dehydrator on the market. Most dehydrators are big and bulky, and you have no where to store it. This one collapses to 1/3 its size and my wife loves me for it. Anyone who is a connoisseur of dehydrators knows that you heat from the side of the unit, not bottom up. Again, this unit meets that standard. I dehydrated so many hot peppers this past summer, the county farmers’ market completely ran out. No hot peppers for ANYONE but me. I bought the same unit for my father for Christmas. I also highly recommend the carrying bag. Holds the unit and all the screens. Easy to pick up and go. Also, get the metal racks. Dishwasher safe.
Professional quality that fits your home.
The world's first folding dehydrator. Folds in seconds to 1/3 its size. Enjoy healthy and delicious benefits of food dehydration without a bulky and hard-to-store appliance.
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.
Dual time/temperature controls. Run at higher temperature for fast initial drying then automatically switch to lower temperature to maintain nutrients and taste.
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 smart heating system can automatically switch to low power for efficiency and precision.
Stainless steel or poly plastic shelves. Choose either polished stainless steel or molded polypropylene shelving. Both options come in a durable and zippered nylon cloth storage case.

“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.”
