American Harvest food dehydrator
    #4058083 - 04/15/05 11:04 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

instead of building some huge frame to house a fan and trays,
i think i'm going to go with one of these.
the all american of food dehydrators.

just a question (i think i know who'll answer it.)

how many of the trays can you place in the unit before it becomes counter-productive, concerning time?

thanks

12 is about right without slowing the process down any. You can go higher, but it does get slower, the higher you go. I bought several A/Harvesters for $5 or 6 bucks each @ thrift stores. Good machines.

I've read numerous articles and posts about not using heat, am I to assume we've disconnected the heating element on these dehydrators?

Not anyone in this thread. Some do. I dont think its needed.

I dont have an american harvest, its a Mr Coffee I think...12 trays are done in about 24 hours...but the bottom half is usually done in about 12...I remove all that are dry and put back the rest for another 6-12 hours and usually its all dry. Shrooms are spread out so that 1 tray dries to about 1/2 ounce. I'm sure you could stack more too...I only have so much height where I put them though :smile: And I have 3 of the damn dehydrators. Silly me, didnt know I'd only need 1..if I need to dry more though at any point, I know theyre there...just havnt had the need.
