We give each food dehydrator a thorough workout in our test labs to find the models that:

  • perform well for dehydrating various foods
  • are easiest to use.

We also provide good and bad points for each model and tell you about any special features, such as timers, automatic shut off, fruit roll tray accessories and whether or not the trays or shelves are dishwasher safe. Our Recommended list quickly tells you the best food dehydrators.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our non profit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
