My wife likes to dry Chanterelle mushrooms. Cuts them into small pieces and then dehydrates..
Our old stove was really good at it...you could set temp to wherever you liked.
But now we have a new improved stove.......problem is it's digital and if we're lucky we might be able to get the lowest temp setting at about 130farenheit...or 137 or something.
Also the light stays on when you crack the door a tad...unlike the old stove.
Is 130 or 137 too hot for slow dehydrating?
We considered buying a dehydrator.........and we like the pro model from Nesco....holds a ton trays and has fan plus temp setting.
But we don't like that the fan is going to make a crapload of noise....unless I put the whole unit in the basement to work. For some I don't like the idea of all that moisture floating around the basement. Maybe that is an imaginary fear....
So...if our new stove proves to be no good at drying mushrooms.........what dehydrator would you recommend?
