The World's First Folding Dehydrator
Award Winning Design
Quickly Folds to 1/3 its size.
Over 1m2 of drying area (11ft2)
Quiet efficient radial 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 heating system.
Automatic switch high to low.
At 700W, 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.
Set up to 99 hours each.
Simple-to-use dual time/temperature controls allows users to easily program two times and two temperatures for better control of food drying. Each time can be set for up to 99 hours for a total of 198 hours of continuous automated operation.
Stainless steel or Polypropylene shelves.
Sahara is available with high-quality 304 stainless steel or poly plastic shelving. All components are BPA and PTFE free. A convenient zippered storage case for shelves is standard. Drying mats of food-grade silicone are available for drying fruit leathers or small items.

“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.”
“…..I strolled past the Brod and Taylor booth at this year’s International Home & Housewares Show, and saw their new Sahara Folding Dehydrator. It stopped me in my tracks because… it folds. To a third of its size. Which makes it incredibly easy to store, yet doesn’t impact how sturdy and well-designed it is.”
“The dehydrator I used is the collapsible model from Brod & Taylor. I’m living in/renovating a very small cottage right now, which means I’m desperately lacking in storage, particularly in the “kitchen” area…….”
“The Sahara is a great machine. Well built, cool design and so functional. I love that it folds down for storage when I’m not using it as well. Where I live in the Okanagan Valley in BC, Canada, we have an abundance of orchards and vineyards and the Sahara makes quick work of dehydration.”
