At the weekend, I bought my first dehydrator so far it is worth its money in gold. I have recently been making dog food from scratch so my dogs get the best food and quality my fur babies deserve. It is fair to say so far they have loved it!
What I have made so far:
• Apple slices
• Sweet potato
Using this machine saves time and you are guaranteed great results there is no way you can overcook, burn or undercook a product you dehydrate, just perfection.
This week I am moving on to try dehydrating meat for my pooches:
• Sea bass jerky
• Salmon jerky
• Beef jerky
The Dehydrator that I bought was from Amazon, which was equipped with an efficient flow-drying system, the dehydrator slowly and evenly extracts moisture and preserves food by using low levels of heat. This process inhibits bacterial growth, preserves food for months and retains nutrients and flavour. Ideal for fruits, meats, fish, vegetables, greens, herbs, yoghurt and bread.
• Large 5 Tier / Trays. Each tray can hold 1kg. Fan from the top of the unit. Temperature control from 40-70℃. Includes an air duct inside to keep the temperature stable in each tier/tray. Powerful 350W motor, top mounted fan, ventilating function and overheat protection. Easy clean trays and removable dishwasher safe fan. Includes instruction manual with temperature and drying time guidelines.
• Dimensions: 33cm x 33cm x 29cm. Tray depth: 3cm
I have added the link for anyone that would be interested in the product to make their own dog treats. With a dehydrator, it is really trial and error you need to play around to get it perfect, I made sure the slices were really thin and put in on the highest setting and check on it every few hours.
I will keep you up to date with my dehydration journey and new ideas! Making your own dog treats and food can work out not only cheaper but better quality and a product you can trust as you know exactly what is in the food.
