Dehydrator Sedona Combo
The Sedona Combo Food Dehydrator comes packed with outstanding features like the digital thermostat, dual fan technology, stainless steel handle, and a transparent glass window. These features combine to offer unparalled control and whisper-quiet operation. With the revolutionary Two-Stage Sequential Temperature Timer (TST), even more control is at your fingertips. The TST allows you to set the Sedona Combo to kickstart the dehydration process at a higher temperature and then automatically lower the temperature to finish off the dehydration process. The automatic settings of the TST allow for faster dehydration times while still preserving your precious enzymes.
Certain fruits and vegetables with high water contents require a higher initial dehydrating temperature in order to prevent fermentation. Because of the high water content, the internal temeprature of the food rises at a very slow rate. Starting at a high temperature for the first couple of hours does not degrade the nutrients of your food as long as the temperature is lowered to finish off the dehydration process. There is no need to use an alarm to come back and lower the dehydrator temperature. With the TST, this chore is handles automatically. With the Sedona Combo dehydrator, spend less time worrying and more time living.

Fan noise is a major concern expressed by many of our customers when they are considering buying a dehydrator. Generally, its fair to say that most dehydrators emit a noise similar to a fan oven. This can be a problem if you can't site the dehydrator where it will cause no disturbance, because many deyhdrating tasks need to include overnight drying. The Sedona Combo Dehdrator is extremely quiet even on its full setting, but it also has a night time setting to reduce the noise even further. The Sedona is the quietest dehydrator in our range.
Tempered Glass Door
Seeing what is going on inside the dehydrator without opening it and letting heat escape is a major plus. This glass door with a hinge along the bottom is typical of the superior build quality that is evident throughout the Sedona Dehydrator. Unlike other dehydrators, the Sedona Combo is also very easy to build into a kitchen unit if you prefer to integrate it with your other appliances. The quality of the construction is apparent the minute you take it from the box and this is typical of what we expect from Tribest health products. The fans have solid grill covers that can't be dented if you push the shelves in too far. The BPA free casing is stronger than other dehydrators and the attention paid to the details has resulted in a sleek, modern dehydrator that would look great in any kitchen.
Dual Fan Technology
The Sedona Dehydrator uses twin fans situated in each half of the vertical space and they can be operated independently. When you are drying a full load in the dehydrator both fans will be in use. If you want to dry a smaller batch you can use the solid dividing tray supplied to effectively isolate either the top or the bottom half of the dehydrator and just use one fan. This improves energy efficiency and cuts down on electricity bills for small batch drying.
Deeper Drying Trays
The edges of the BPA free trays in the Sedona are scalloped which can help prevent ingredients from straying off the tray when loading and unloading the deyhydrator. In addition to this useful feature, the gap of about an inch between trays is deeper than any of our other horizontal dehydrators. This is another plus, because you can dry bulkier items like curled leaves or tomato halves without the need to remove other trays and lose drying capacity.
Precise Digital Control
The Sedona Combo Dehydrator has a digital display and control panel. It allows you to set a timer for up to 99 hours and you can use either one or both of the fans and heaters depending on the amount of produce you are drying. Temperature is controlled from 86°F/30°C up to a maximum of 155°F/68°C and you can set it to display in either Centigrade or Farenheit. The mode button allows you to set the Sedona dehydrator for even quieter operation through the night. There is a pause button and the dehydrator also pauses when you open the glass door so that the fans are not blowing all that valuable heat away. And of course the new TST system allows dual temperature drying to be automated without the need to return to the dehydrator and reset a lower temperature after initial drying.
