“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.”

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.
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.
and I didn't have a clue why I wanted it, but eventually I was worn down by the pretty pictures. When it arrived, we started making as many different things as possible and learning our lessons along the way. Use a silicone mat for strawberries. Small sticky stuff leaves a residue on the metal shelves that is harder to clean than the mat. My first try at a fruit leather (roll up) was not pretty but it was delicious. It was more fun than most stuff in the kitchen because it's so easy. Not a lot of prep - just slice. It's very very quiet, shuts off automatically, and you don't have to stand over it. Bananas, beef jerky, mango, limes, apples, One batch did get a mold right away so I put the little silicone packets in each jar to keep the chips dry...frig or freezer is best if not eaten right away. Love it. I recommend it.
Sahara Folding Dehydrator
I’ve only used the dehydrator twice, so I can’t speak to its longevity. However, I am very happy with it so far. I got it primarily because vegetables are inevitably packaged in quantities that I can’t use, but I don’t want to waste.
1. It’s very easy to set up and take down. The racks all fit in their nice case. I live in a small house, so it was important to me that it didn’t take up space when not in use.
2. The wire racks and silicon mats are easy to clean.
3. I’ve dehydrated carrots, parsnips, and mushrooms. First thing I learned: drying times give a range. Here in Memphis, where it is very humid, I need to use the longest time. This works just fine. I put the dehydrator on my washing machine, the vegetables dry overnight.
4. The dried vegetables are delicious. And it gives me the opportunity to preserve vegetables from a farmers’ market — types of veg I can’t get commercially.
5. I found a website called The Backpacking Chef which has great info on drying vegetables and then cooking with them.
Not only is the Sahara dehydrator efficient and large capacity, it is a really slick design. Every time I use it I am impressed all over again. It's perfect for my situation (tiny, poorly designed kitchen) because it easily folds down for storage. I got the carrying case for it and for the shelves as well and everything fits together, so I don't have to go hunting for where I might have put parts of it. It is also 'stupid simple' to unfold and operate. Kudos to the designers of this excellent product! Their customer service is awesome too; they took care of my mistake in ordering as well as gave me the sale price that happened the day after I bought my unit. I am recommending this dehydrator to everyone!
