For outlets looking to offer something truly unique, Excalibur Dehydrators from Bonzer® are the perfect choice. A simple, yet clever concept that employs variable heat to draw moisture out of foods such as fruit, vegetables, nuts and herbs, to give a dried alternative packed full of flavour and nutritional goodness that are great as a garnish, decoration or for creating your own brand of healthy snacks and meals!
Each Dehydrator features an adjustable thermostat that fluctuates the temperature between 95°F to 155°F, thereby keeping it low enough to preserve the active enzymes found in fruit and veg, but high enough to remove moisture quickly enough to prevent bacteria. This preserves not only the taste but also the vitamins and goodness which helps create appeal amongst health conscious customers. The 26 hour timer allows operators to set it and forget it, as the machine will turn itself off once the products are fully dried.
The possibilities are endless for using dried ingredients to create a unique selling point. Serve up healthy snacks in the form of apple crisps or banana chips, create your own homemade granola or dried fruit bars for a delicious breakfast offering, or use dried onions and chillies to make a tasty soup. Using a Dehydrator is also more cost efficient than sourcing from a health food shop and more nutritious than mass produced alternatives as they often include chemicals which are added for preservation.
The Excalibur Dehydrators come in 5 and 9 tray variants with each tray measuring in at 15” x 15”. The mesh screens are BPA free and dishwasher safe.
