Ronco Food Dehydrator?
    #4588156 - 08/27/05 07:33 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

So I'm in the market for a food dehydrator, and I've come across this 5-tray electric model that they used to sell on infomercials years ago. It is said to be in great condition and the price is right, but does anyone use a Ronco model? What I'm concerned about is that there is no fan inside of it (it's WHISPER QUIET OMG!!!!) and I dont want the heat to be so much that I will suffer a loss of potency by the end of the drying process.

I use the same kind, fanless heating element dehydrator. It gets pretty warm in there (150F+) but my friends don't complain about potency from this drying setup whatsoever.

Now I have had friends complain when I dried five trays overnight They were BRF creepers BTW. Just my experience with Ronco

Ronco's work like an oven - meaning straight convection from a heating coil - without a fan. I prefer a dehydrator with a fan. Otherwise, you could simply use an oven. Which, I don't recommend.
Just my humble opionon.

Maybe he dries and eats a lot of shrooms in his dehydrator.
That might explain the spray painting the head thing!  :laugh:

Mine seems to work ok :wink:  ........ The Dehydrator, that is!

While I'm waiting on my Dehydrator I ordered, I read a tek while searching for info here, that said you can put them on a plate, wrap in a black shirt (to absorb heat) and put it under a grow lamp about 24" above the plate (which I'm already using so it was kinda convenient), and Ive already dried 2 flushes with this method it seems to be working great.

I Had several different sources say they didn't get off on an eighth apiece, these were dried (baked!) overnight in a Ronco, first and last time that happened and friends have been happy ever since. Good old fan/desiccant here.

That's strange hyphae, maybe it was the substrate (BRF) more than the drying process? I don't know how the Ronco differs from mine, but mine is still air element type, and h/poo cubes that sit on that thing for a few days can really rock your world, even small doses.

It may have certainly have been but I figure patience is a virtue throughout the whole grow why rush the final end process. Just my view now days.

Great view IMO. I too have had problems with trying to rush the drying process through too much heat. I've got the same dehydrator you've got posted up there man. I took the element out of it and am planning on building a large dehydrator with it. Fan included......
