Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying

1. The base of the electric dryer - ABS plastic. The bottom of the dryer must be covered with a continuous rimmed tray. This is done so that no liquid could get into the electronics compartment from the pallets of the electric dryer, from dripping fruits during drying, which is inevitable. In case of particularly juicy fruits, you can also put a tray for marshmallows on the bottom of the bottom.

2. Electric dryer cover - ABS plastic, fireproof polycarbonate.

3. Pallets - ABS food grade plastic. The diameter of the pallets is large, from 34 cm.

4. Height of pallets - do not forget to ask the seller what the nominal load of each baking sheet is (it can vary from 500 g to 1 kg) and the depth of the pallets.
If the walls are 10 mm high, then you can only dry finely chopped fruits and vegetables, such as a finely cut orange. The higher the pallets, the larger the fruit can be placed on them, for example, pear halves. Therefore, it is better to choose an electric dryer with pallets 15-20 mm deep and higher, or with adjustable walls. Dryers are available with pallet heights from 27 mm. Some models of dryers have a hollow tray to increase the capacity of conventional sections.

5. Mesh sheet for drying small berries, greens - Food grade polypropylene. Such a sheet with a net does not allow small berries, herbs to fall down through the pallets, onto the heating element

6. Pastille sheet, solid sheet without holes - Food grade polypropylene. Such a solid sheet allows you to pour liquid berry puree blanks on it, for making marshmallows, a thin berry layer, which can then be rolled up into a tube for storage.

7. Maximum number of trays, which can be installed on a base - optimally from 10 trays, further depends on the capacity and load of the electric dryer. For example, each tray-tray holds 300-500 grams of sliced ​​vegetables, which means that 3-5 kg ​​can be stacked on 10 trays. raw vegetables.

8. Construction of trays - Double wall pallets, allows hot air to pass between the walls, which makes drying better

9. Passport capacity.
The power of electric dryers ranges from 165 W to 1000 W. Low power electric dryers have only a heating element, which is most often located at the bottom, but there are models in which it is located on the lid.
With the device in 300 watts you can easily dry food on three floors, but for 6-7 trays you need to have at least 500-600 watts.
Power 500 Watt, for a large number of trays and high-quality drying.
Power 1000 Watt and the 55-70 * C mode will allow you to cook meat and fish, basturma, sudzhuk and balyks, goulash and stew in an electric dryer
The high power of the electric dryer allows you to make a large bookmark of fruits on pallets, in several rows, to increase the actual capacity of the trays.
Ask the seller what engine life electric dryers? Motors can be rated for 2-3 years continuous work, and moreover around the clock, then it can be replaced in the Service Center with a new one, and whether the Service Center of the model you buy can do it.

10. Power supply - 230-240 V, 50 Hz

11. Security - Thermal fuse, double insulation
Be sure to be curious about what will happen if the fan suddenly fails.
Attention: for many models, the heating element does not turn off at the same time! The minimum is the dryer simply melts, the maximum is fire. The instructions say: "The device requires constant monitoring." Or: Place the appliance only on a fireproof surface to avoid a fire hazard.

12. Temperature - Sensory (Low-Medium-High), for example:
Low 35 ° C;
Medium 50-55 ° C;
High 60 ° C.
It is important to have a temperature sensor in the electric dryer, which will maintain a constant set temperature in the electric dryer, regardless of the outside temperature. I set it to 55 ° C - it will keep it at 55, and it doesn't matter how much it is outside, 15 or 35 ° C. The thermal sensor turns off the heating element if there is enough heat, and turns it on only when needed. Otherwise: the warmer, the less the heating element works. Temperature uniformity is a major factor in good drying performance.
The presence of a thermal sensor reduces energy consumption by more than half. For example, the working power of the model is 500 W / h, but in reality the electric dryer can "eat" 180-250.
One of the most important characteristics of a dryer is the maximum possible temperature inside it. The lower this indicator, the longer the drying time will last, because the high temperature increases the amount of moisture removed. If its indicator is too low, the products inside will simply start to deteriorate.

13. Basic kit - several pallets, net, pastille tray.
It is advisable to additionally increase the basic set to the optimal one, for example:
10 trays for drying fruits, herbs
10 mesh sheets for drying small berries, herbs
10 sheets for pastille (solid sheet without holes)

14. The presence of a FAN and a heating element in the electric dryer !!!
Moreover, these two devices must be available together, which guarantees the safety of the electric dryer.

15. How does hot air move? As a rule, the air moves from bottom to top, and you will have to rearrange the pallets in places for high-quality drying. It is desirable that the hot air "walk" horizontally! Check the quality of the air flow, rest your palm on the top of the dryer, the air flow must be hot!
The horizontal air flow allows the fruit to be stacked on the pallet in several layers, which ultimately increases the actual capacity of the tray.

16. Body of electric dryers - the body of electric dryers is made of plastic and metal. Metal dryers are stronger, but at the same time heavier and heat up during operation, so you can get burned.

17. Noise level - Electric dryers often make a lot of noise during operation, so before buying, do not forget to check the volume of the device.

18. Other convenience of use - some dryers have a timer, digital display, automatic shutdown, countdown timer. These features are certainly useful, but not required.
Automatic shutdown of the electric dryer is decided by a timer on the outlet - the device is sold in any electrical appliance store, the price is affordable.
These are some simple recommendations for you on choosing an electric dryer.

I hope they will help you make your choice ... in any case, the choice is yours!

If there are any points that I missed, let me know - I will insert into the text.

girls, tell me how much a dryer is needed in the household? I'm obsessed with all kinds of kitchen appliances. Everyone around me calls the patient, but I do not argue. The kitchen is already packed to capacity. Today they should bring a milk cooker, and they began to think about a dryer. But I don't want to waste useless things. How relevant is it if I don't have my own vegetable garden (and it is clear that I don't have my own vegetables, fruits, etc., etc.), everything is bought on the market? This year I froze fruits and vegetables for the first time. I'm happy. We use. One drawback - the freezer is full to the dump. You can't put anything else in it. We eat dried fruits very rarely, but I would add it to porridge with pleasure. So maybe it's better to buy dried fruits ready-made on the market? Or does it make sense to purchase a dryer and prepare drying in the summer yourself? Girls experienced in this matter, please tell me.

To answer that question, check out our dryer-baked treats https://Mcooker-enn.icdself.com/index.php@option=com_smf&board=174.0, then decide whether you need a dryer or not
Nathalte
Ladies, I keep choosing the dryer. Now I choose between dry wind and wind. As I understand it, the differences are not fundamental.But the question arose after reading the instructions: do all dryers need to be turned off after a certain time of operation? That is, I dried it for about 15 hours, rested a couple. So for everyone or only for inexpensive ones?

Sorry, but you want to dry for weeks without stopping, right?
Technique is technique, any - expensive or cheap - you need to take a break from work.
Nathalte
It's clear. It's just that not everyone has it written, so I was surprised. In general, I can’t choose in any way: the dear ones at the moment I can’t pull, but from the simpler all the same. So she broke her head already: whether to take Supra cheaper, or Veterok with Sukhovey.
irysska
And what are your plans for her - to dry a little of this or that from the bazaar, or do you have a summer cottage or your own farm and harvests?
Nathalte
I have my own house with all that it implies. Previously, there seemed to be no need, I got along wonderfully with a freezer. But for two years in a row I have been actively addicted to sun-dried tomatoes in oil (although I bring tomatoes from the Kuban). I made them in the oven, and then it ripened to the dryer. But since the construction site is on the way, then ... how much money they gave, that's what I get around. Yes, I plan to dry a lot, mostly cherries and all sorts of vegetables.
irysska
If you plan to dry a lot, then I would take a closer look at Veterk or Sukhovei - I would choose the model in which there is more capacity and you can buy trays separately.
Well, I need to see live - which one you like better, buy this one.
Nathalte
So I am inclined to them. Supra, of course, outwardly prettier, but the quality may not be ice. Do you need to eat, for example, in the cold air? It's just that the dry wind temperature is regulated from 0, and the breeze from 30, it seems. Is it worth paying attention to? Or pampering?
Yes, and the breeze has a pallet load of up to 2 kg. It is important?
irysska
Nathalte
personally, I have a Zelmer drying with 2 temperature modes and there was no need for cold air. But - if there is such an adjustment - then let it be, it may come in handy. Although it seems to me that from 30C it is quite enough and lower is not necessary (that is, to be from 0C).
More important is the capacity and how noisy it works - it would be nice to turn on and evaluate both of them in the store.
Quote: Nathalte


Yes, and the breeze has a pallet load of up to 2 kg. It is important?
but how to say: if you cut the fruit into thick slices - then 3 kg. you can shove it in, or you can cut it thin and fit only 1kg
I'm leading - in my opinion, the diameter of the pallet, its height (so that, for example, there is enough space between the pallets for drying apricot halves) and the number of pallets with the possibility of purchasing additional ones are important.
Nathalte
Thank you. There, in both of them, there is a sufficient height of pallets, I have already bothered with this. But I didn't think about the noise, yes. And by the way, just for dry wind and breeze there are additional pallets on sale. Thanks again, everything seems to be clear now.
irysska
Glad if I helped

Check out this dryer Ezidri Snackmaker Electric Dryer https://Mcooker-enn.icdself.com/index.php@option=com_smf&topic=139314.0
Girls, please help! Itself has already got confused in the choice. There was a question about buying a dryer.
I got sick Ezidri Snackmaker, but half is still holding the defense ... he said it was too cool for a dryer. So far I refrain from Zelmer, I read conflicting reviews, the capacity is not large and transparent pallets.
I'm looking at this one, but I can't find any reviews.

🔗

Maybe someone will say or advise. There is another option for choosing Sukhovey-M OR Veterok-2.
I don’t know what to order! I have to do things, but since the morning I have been surfing here and I can’t make up my mind
Grypana
Nelya, I would also take into account the height of these pallets. At Zelmer, by the way, the height is present. In the meantime, I have decided the issue with the dryer - the purchase of an airfryer. On my small scale drying it will be enough (for now, I guess)
nila
Yes, you're right ... I missed this point. But they don't write the height of the pallets
And aeroglil will not save me))) I have a garden and this year there should be a lot of fruits and another vegetable garden
Grypana
It's just that I have come across other recipes where pieces of pickled fish and chicken are dried.And I always looked at the dryers and the height of the pallets. It was at Zelmer's that I met tall pallets. Well, then they will advise as the owner.
nila
Natasha! Hope they can advise anything!
Nathalte
I ended up buying Veterok-2. I agreed with my husband that she would set me a timer. By the way, just at this breeze you can dry fish and meat, there is such a continuous tray, which is placed at the very bottom for juice and fat. I tried to dry a little so far, but her volume is large, a lot will enter.

Although I changed it (in the sense that the first one was married), I am happy with it - not noisy, high trays. I have never regretted a purchase

Thank you, I opened the page of our store, and there this dryer is right on the first line I didn't even believe that this happens ...
Natali06
Irisha, I see a conversation about a selmer, I came and put in my "5 kopecks" :) Here they talked about drying (drying) fish, and so I want to say that the selmer does a great job and copes with it. I divided the fish into pieces, soaked and dried until the desired result. Again, I want to say a laudatory ode to the sellers, he works for me a lot, and I have never regretted my choice (and even planted all my colleagues)
Taia
Natali06 What's your Zelmer model?

Natasha, it's not just possible, even very necessary
Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad that not only I like this drying
irysska
Taia
So Zelmer has only essentially 1 drying model, but divided into 2 options - with 2 trays and with 4 trays (36Z011) - she saw only her own on sale.

But that was before, I already figured it out
Taia
We sell 4 models: Zelmer 36Z 011 white; Zelmer FD 1000 white; Zelmer FD 1001 white; Zelmer FD 1002 white.
So I'm trying to find the differences and figure out what I have no idea about.
irysska
Whoa, 4 models
We have not seen this
irysska
I went to Zelmer's website - indeed, 4 models
Now I'll take a closer look

Here are my findings:

36Z011 - 330W, 4 sieves, 11L volume, microprocessor, 2 power levels

FD1000 - 520W, 4 sieves, 11l, microprocessor-based, but instead of pseudo-touch buttons such as toggle switches, 2 power levels

FD1001 - 520W, 4 sieves, 11L, electronic, 2 power levels, cool buttons, light up

FD1002 - 520W, 4 sieves, 11l, electronic, 2 power levels + a timer-clock and setting the drying time, cooling the heater (only I do not understand how) and the display - well, this is the coolest, but I think the price for it will be not sickly

So in terms of capacity, they are all absolutely the same !!!! the only difference is in tuning. Yes, and all have 2 temperature settings.
But as for me, the more lotions, the greater the likelihood of breakage, although all these timers-clocks are an attractive business, but you can use them quite well without them. Although if I didn't have my Zelmeryusha, maybe I would have bought FD1002
Taia
Quote: irysska

I went to Zelmer's website - indeed, 4 models

And the most expensive is $ 80.
Your model is $ 60, here's a thought - is it worth overpaying ...
Natali06
Taia. if price matters then take 36Z011. It is reliable and affordable.

Iruska, yes I read how you changed. I chose from many pieces with a device ... which I do not have ... and chose for myself! The fact is that last summer I gave my sister-in-law Zelmer and she does not feel much delight from her. WhyChoosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying Hard to say . At first she did not use it, then she dried something, but without enthusiasm. With inquiries, I can’t do much, I can’t climb, because it’s a gift.
I read reviews about her))) there are good ones, but there are also not very good ones. I don't want to hope for a miracle, and its volume is too small. So I'm considering something bigger and more reliable.
Nathalte, tell me, how happy are you with Veterk-2? I also bow in her direction, although I also do not throw Rotor (Barnaul) and the Miracle. The problem is that I can't look at any of these dryers live ... the current on the Internet. And the description is not enough.
In short, while the half brings the money, I still have time for picking and throwing
I'm waiting ... maybe someone else will advise Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying will bring confusion to my soul
exiga
I have Sukhovey-M, and last summer TTT could not get enough of it. Overdried probably sacks of 20 apples, dried cherries, tomatoes, bell peppers, raspberries. Here is a photo: apples Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying , bell pepper Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying , tomatoes Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying
Apples were probably dried for about 14 hours to a chip-like state, tomatoes seem to be the same, I don't remember exactly
Now on the device. Dimensions (edit) Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying
Side slitChoosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying, through which it also blows more intensely, as well as through the centerChoosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying Here it seems like Isidri's technology, but I haven't seen that thing alive, I won't say for sure
Pallet Choosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying... The height of the side is generally smallChoosing an electric dryer - recommendations, what to look for when buying, how much juice can drain there, but structurally, even if there is an overflow, there are holes at the bottom through which everything will flow out, bypassing the electronics, since the motor is in the center under the "umbrella".
As for the temperature, the degrees are quite enough to dry, and not bake the dried meat, and I did not need to additionally regulate it.As a result, the apples in the compote seem to be fresh, and I first fill the tomatoes with water before putting them on the pizza, and they also look quite decent. Initially, the dryer was sold with 5 pallets, I bought 5 more, it says that it can be increased to 20.With 5 pallets, the top cover hovered over the dryer, like a flying saucer, when there were 10 pallets, it tried to take off a little, but not in complete weightlessness
exiga
I also forgot to add that the plastic is quite decent, although when sending additional pallets, a piece was chipped off to me from the side, thank God that at least such a defect was not fatal for performance. In comparison, for example, with a Zelmer, it somehow looks more robust

The Zelmer plastic is also good. I had a vinyl, so the pallets fell into small pieces.
nila
exiga, Stafа ! Sukhovey-M is also on my list! And good. that we can also order spare pallets.
But I was confused by one fad - she is without a thermostat ... does it somehow affect?
Stafa
I dried at first at full power, then, as it dries, I switched to a lower one. I did not notice any inconveniences, everything was drying well enough, periodically I changed the trays and wore their contents. Apples and carrots dried the fastest, greens also dried quickly. But peppers and tomatoes are longer and much longer.

Although no, there are inconveniences - in the winter I dried the onions - and the windows are closed, the smell overwhelmed, I will not dry it anymore in closed spaces, the smell is hefty corrosive.And in the fall, it was just a small aroma soaring, so unobtrusive - the room was ventilated and imperceptible.
exiga
Nelya, at first I was also puzzled by the lack of a thermostat, and the degrees seemed not enough, but in the end I am very pleased, because I don’t need to think out something, regulate it Like a camera on an automatic - pointed it and took it off!

This confuses me. I quote
In "Sukhovey M" there is no temperature regulator, the dryer is constantly working at the optimum temperature.


Oh, while looking for a quote, exiga has already answered.
Girls, thank you
Zima
I am also choosing a dryer for my mother now - she has a gas stove, so it is impossible to dry anything in it because of the too high temperature.
I consider Zelmer as the most affordable option - you can buy it in any city, but I was more interested in this model.
🔗 Dry wind with temperature regulator. Does anyone have one?
I wonder how good it is, just buying it is associated with certain unnecessary body movements, I will either need to drag this bandura from Moscow to the Urals (I will fly by plane) or order delivery by mail, or try to find it on the spot ... well, for the money it is more expensive will come out
Olima
exiga, judging by your photos, Sukhovey-M really looks like Isidra. And the lowest pallet is the same, and the side slots in the nets. But in my Isidri, even if there is only one mesh, the lid does not take away anywhere, it clearly lies in its place. It turns out that the face was copied from Isidri, but with the electronics it did not quite work out yet.
In no way did she want to offend the owners of Sukhovey
exiga
why be offended? After all, these two devices are of several different price categories, apparently there are some sensors in the isidri and regulate the strength of the air flow depending on the load, and in Sukhovoe it twists and twists. I also remembered that a friend advised me to dry raspberries, said that in 4 hours in her dryer in Alaska, raspberries are like dragees, and in Dry Hove I probably dried for 15 hours, and the berries, let's say, are not completely dry. cook
Olima
Quote: exiga

in dry wind, I probably dried about 15 hours, and the berries, let's say, are not completely dry. So, in my opinion, it's easier to make jam from raspberries

I didn’t dry raspberries in Isidri, I got it that year in August, when apples were poured and there was no place to put them. So my parents remembered that 4 years ago they bought this Isidri and happily forgot about it. They gave me for temporary use for drying apples, with a selfish purpose, that I would dry them too, otherwise they don't have time, but I'm still sitting at home on maternity leave. So I still have it and this dryer is.
And from raspberries it is better not to cook jam, but sprinkle it with sugar and freeze it. Then in winter there is such a scent from her, but the taste is generally lost
exiga
Thanks for the tip, this is how I make strawberries, but I didn't even think about raspberries
Olima
In general, if you think so, what will remain in the dried raspberries? Some bones, there is almost no pulp, only juice. Yes, we do not have so much of it and there is a lot to experiment with it, and in small quantities we don't really want to wind up electricity. So there was only one option left for me - freezing. My mom (she does not have a large freezer) mixes raspberries with a lot of sugar and keeps them in the refrigerator like that, but for me such raspberries are very sweet.
