Kitchen Living Food Dehydrator: Product Review













I recently purchased the Kitchen Living Food Dehydrator for $19.99 at ALDI. There are a few left in stores, so worth snagging if this is your thing. I have never dehydrated foods before, so I am by no means an expert on what makes a good food dehydrator. I have had quite a few zucchini, summer squash, and kale from my garden this year and last and I was looking for something to do with them other than freeze. I have done a few batches so far of zucchini chips (Yum!), summer squash chips, and kale chips (I am not a fan. I really don't get what all the fuss is about?) I also just did a quick batch of drying italian parsley, basil, oregano, lemon thyme, and greek oregano. It's a fun new kitchen gadget to have and I am happy with my purchase.

Price: Similar 5-tray, single setting, food dehydrators are priced $30.99 at Target and $40.99 at Walmart. Steal at ALDI for $19.99.

Drawbacks: Other dehydrators have temperature settings, so you can adjust the drying process. For my purposes of trying out food dehydrating, this was not an issue for me.

  1. I got one of these around the same time. But this year the first time I used them I noticed the racks are splitting, warping and even melting in spots. Anyone know what causes this?

    1. Leaving EMPTY racks on the plugged in heater unit with the cover on and large vents closed will definitely warp and melt the trays. I know this because I just did it to two of mine. I'm glad I bought two dehydrator sets while Aldi was selling them!

  3. Hey,

    nice review!
    I had a similar food dehydrator. I think I also bought it at ALDI. But I wasn't very satisfied with it. The vertical drying didn't work very well and the whole dehydrator broke after a view weeks. Now I've a dehydrator with a horizontal drying system. This special drying system guaranteed a even drying. My new dehydrator also has stainless steel tray which are much easier to clean as this plastic trays. That's my new awesome food deydrator: vitality4life.com/biochef-arizona-6-tray-food-dehydrator/

  4. Most dehydrators have a temperature thermostat to maintain the desired temperature and a fan to circulate fresh dry air. fruit dehydrator
