I've never used a food dehydrator but I've heard that they work..
In my opinion the best method is wrap the shrooms in a paper towel, and stick it in front of a fan for 24 hours, then put the shrooms in an airtight container with some dessicant at the bottom and let them sit for a day or two. They get cracker dry.
And yes a vacuum sealer is the way to go. Just make sure the shrooms are completely dry before sealing them in a plastic bag.
I've also read somewhere that its a good idea to throw in one of those dessicant packages in the bag with the shrooms when you seal them. You know the little packets that are in your shoes when you buy them new.... they say DO NOT EAT.

They may say "DO NOT EAT" but boy are they tasty...

Food dehydrators will work. The only thing you have to be wary of is the heat factor. Most good food dehydrators have heat settings on them. Before you go throwing your precious mushies in there, crank it up for an hour or so and check the temp. You dont want it climbing above 110f or so or you will have some potency loss. I dry mine using a combo of fanning and dessicant. In my experience no amout of fanning will completely dry mushies out. so when they feel dry i throuw them in a dessicant chamber to suck out the rest.

LuciferX causes lung cancer, heart disease, Emphysema, and may complicate pregancy.

Once in awhile you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right

Why not JUST use the dessicant chamber instead of a fan then the chamber?
