Dehydrators remove moisture from food via heat and air flows. The air flow of food dehydrators happen to be designed either horizontally or vertically. It so happened that the horizontal air flow food dehydrators embodies a fan and a heating elements which can be found only on one side of the dehydrator. The drying trays that hold the food are arranged like drawers inside the food dehydrator. Simply saying, compared to the vertical air flow dehydrators, the horizontal ones are much more better in dehydrating different types of food and it is also beneficial since it mixes the food flavors less than compared to the vertical air flow dehydrators. Horizontal air flow dehydrators are also advisable to use if you do not want to spend more time in cleaning since it is perfect in preventing the juices of foods from dripping to the heating element. If you happen to find the heating element and the fan of the dehydrator on its base, then basically, it is a vertical air flow dehydrator. A vertical air flow dehydrator also happens to have its drying trays positioned on the top of the base. Considering that both of the food and the drying trays are positioned right at the top of the heating element, then you should expect that the variation of temperature is only between the top and bottom food drying trays.
It has also been known that the bottom and top drying trays of the vertical air flow dehydrators are being swapped in order to give an even drying effect across all foods and drying trays.
The thermostat of food dehydrators are also required so that it won’t have an increase in temperature inside knowing that it without the thermostat, it can cause dehydration inside. Everyone should avoid dehydration and constant unchanging heat inside since it can cause food hardening which may result to bacteria inside the food.
