To operate the Food Dehydrator to achieve the best dehydration effect, you need to pay attention to many aspects. Here are some key steps and considerations:
First, the preparation phase is crucial. Operators should be familiar with the performance, operating instructions and precautions of Food Dehydrator. Before use, check whether the dehydrator and its components are intact, remove all debris on the dehydrator, filter plate and filter cloth, check the oil level value of the hydraulic unit, and whether the position of the filter plate is offset or protruded, and whether the filter cloth Is it locked tightly? Is the pneumatic diaphragm pump normal? The purpose of these preparations is to ensure that the dehydrator is operating at its best.
Next is the preparation of materials. Wash the food, remove excess water and cut into appropriate size pieces. The size, shape and moisture content of the material will all affect the dehydration effect, so it needs to be processed appropriately according to the characteristics of the material.
Then, distribute the cut food evenly on the dehydrator tray. Note that the distribution of materials should be even and there should be no obvious offset or accumulation to ensure that the materials are heated evenly during the dehydration process and improve the dehydration effect.
Next, choose the appropriate dehydration time and temperature. Different ingredients require different dehydration times and temperatures. Generally speaking, processed vegetables, meat, etc. require higher temperatures, while dried fruits, etc. require lower temperatures. The dehydration time should not be too long or too short, so as not to affect the taste or lead to incomplete dehydration.
During the dehydration process, you can check the dehydration effect in a timely manner. If it is found that the material is not completely dehydrated, the dehydration time can be appropriately extended; if the material is excessively dehydrated, the dehydration time should be reduced or the temperature should be lowered.
Finally, after dehydration is completed, turn off the power switch, wait for the equipment to automatically brake and stop, and then take out the materials in the basket. Be careful not to forcibly open the upper cover or cut off the power supply while the equipment is in operation to avoid personal injury or equipment damage.
To sum up, operating Food Dehydrator to achieve optimal dehydration results requires care, patience and certain professional knowledge. Satisfactory dehydration results can be ensured through adequate preparation in the preparation stage, meticulous material handling, precise control of dehydration time and temperature, and timely inspections during the dehydration process.
