Q.  Hi, I found you through Martha Stewart's Website, and am looking for advice on drying the tomatoes in my dehydrators, and then putting them into oil. I am assuming a good quality of olive oil, and anything else maybe a few sliced garlic cloves or dried peppers?

I have a large Harvest Saver, a yard sale dehydrator with element only and just bought an Nesco American Harvest Dehydrator from your website www.HomesteadHarvest.com! Some people just don't know what fun they are missing!

Planning to dry onions next when my sous chef has a day off ( My husband)  And I want to try drying carrots and peas for soup mix!

Just finished drying peppers, (9 green ones with 6 red, orange and yellow ones) makes about three cups, and they smell so good, also dried the stems with seeds pods left on and they turned out so beautiful, put them in a jar, and will flick a few of the seeds into barley soup, sparingly, however!

A.  The tomatoes should dry up very nicely as the temperature in your Nesco dehydrator is approximately 145 degrees.  Using high quality olive oil, some garlic cloves and dried peppers will help turn many of your dishes into masterpieces--I'm thinking about all the wonderful authentic Pizza Napoli I am going to make tonight.  Please visit the link to our Food Dehydrator section.  You can also search our site for "Food Dehydrator."

Q.  We would like to know the cost of the Stainless Steel Food Dehydrator Model D10 by The Sausage Maker
with the optional stainless steel shelves ( instead of the chrome ). Also, what would shipping cost to Ohio?   Edna, Columbus, OH.

A.  The Sausage Maker D-10 Stainless Steel Dehydrator are powerful machines for drying food such as berries and fruit, as well as drying meats and fish for making jerky.  For current pricing, please visit the links here: either chrome or stainless steel shelves.  We recommend the stainless if you are going to be doing volume drying, as well as for the longevity that stainless offers.  This is an excellent unit for the price, and we free freight for both of these machines to the US48 including Ohio via ground when you place your order. 

Q.  What dehydrators should I consider if I am starting a high production jerky works? Scott., Tempe, AZ.

A.  Hi Scott, Thanks for the call this morning. Here is the link to a couple of our dehydrators that might suit your application.  These are medium duty dehydrators that will get your started in terms of mass producing jerky.

Q.  I am a fresh fruit producer, mainly fresh bananas. Dehydration of fresh tropical fruit is a very new concept in Turkey. I want to get into this business so I am looking for the right machinery. The TSM D-12 model seems to be a good choice for the beginning, for drying bananas and strawberries. But as far as I am concerned, the machine you sell is not compatible with Turkey's electricity current. We use 220V / 50 Hz in Turkey and in Europe.

So is there any that you can make the dehydrator adjusted for our national current level, and do you think this machine is the correct choice for drying fresh fruit like banana and strawberry? Or do you recommend something else? 
Ozan, Istanbul.

A.  Ozan, we have sold a number of our Sausage Maker D-12 stainless steel food dehydrators, to Europe, Africa, and ustralia.  We suggest you order the machine and pick up a voltage transformer.  You should have no problems beyond that.  Good luck with the banana and strawberry dehydration business. 

Q.  I am looking for a dehydrator to dry individual fruit pieces such as cherries and cut up apples, and also to make fruit leather from fruit puree.  Does the D10 have the type of racks available to do this?

A.  We have seen wax paper and or Teflon sheets used in all the dehydrators we sell with great success.  Making fruit leather should be a snap, and the racks that come with the D-10 will work just fine.

Q.  I've just ordered a Gardenmaster dehydrator. Does it come with an instruction manual?  I'm a first time user and have a rapidly growing garden.

A.  Thanks for your recent order.  Yes, most of our dehydrators come with instruction manuals as well as recipes.
