Life is better with a Sedona Express Dehydrator.

Compact kitchen-friendly design. It sits easily on the bench and is barely audible when in use. And even on the hottest of days, any increase in the ambient room temperature from the dehydrator in use is barely noticeable (unlike a conventional oven in use).
.
As a raw-foodist, the Two-Stage Sequential Temperature-Timer (TST) Feature won me over to make this brand the dehydrator of choice. The TST feature allows you to kick-start the dehydration process by starting at a higher temperature (FAST mode) for the first few hours, then automatically switching to a lower temperature (RAW mode) to finish off the job. This process works perfectly on foods with higher moisture content --> Like my big thick raw banana pancakes, fruit roll-ups, savoury wraps, home-made crackers which might otherwise take hours and hours longer. Also great with dehydrating mushrooms to a dryness that allows them to be powdered and added to smoothies, coffee, and tea.
.
The Sedona Express has 11 removable trays. I love the stainless steel trays, easy to clean (can go in the dishwasher). Purchasing additional silicon mats for using with very wet ingredients (when making wraps, pancakes etc) is very helpful. Having adjustable trays allows for dehydrating of larger items like raw bread. Proofing of doughs. Warming raw lasagne etc. For a compact tiny product, it performs in a BIG way. When dehydrating with all trays in use I would recommend occasionally rotating the shelves as I have found the food directly in front of the central fan drys more quickly on these occasions.
.
Digital controls and displays are easy to use. Fahrenheit and Celcius options mean if you're having trouble converting your recipe over to Metric measure - you have the option of following a recipe in the Imperial measurement. For me, this has been wonderful and makes the whole dehydrating process versatile and flexible, regardless of where I am following my recipes from.
.
The Unit has a Glass Hinged Door with Internal LED Light for Easy Monitoring and Insertion/Extraction of Trays. The transparent glass door and internal LED light make it easy to check the progress of your food throughout the dehydration process. The side-hinged configuration allows for easy insertion/extraction of trays. And best of all, the dehydrator/fan function stops, as soon as the door is opened and resumes automatically when the door is closed again.
.
I would highly recommend investing in this brand and style of a dehydrator. I purchased this product after having previously used an inexpensive vertical stacking plastic model and there are no comparisons to be made.
.
I made my purchase online through Raw Blend Australia who provided me with prompt and helpful service. My dehydrator has been in regular use now for over 2 years, often running for up to 48hrs at a time. It has never had a fault. I have cleaned the air/fan filter on occasion and have a spare one on hand should I ever need one, but remarkably the filter has remained very very clean. I am also still using the original silicone mats I purchased at the same time as the dehydrator, They remain in excellent condition and show no signs of degrading.

Great capacity and efficiency

This dehydrator has tons of room, so you can dehydrate a lot of produce all at once. We've used it for our excess orange and grapefruit crop, plus apples-all dried evenly and tasted great! Its worth spending the money to buy a top quality product. Can't wait for summer and our crops of plums and prunes to dry!

Just Amazing & Reliable! This is impressive equipment. I run VIVE Cooking School in Sydney and we were recommended to use Sedona dehydrators. I use it for certain raw classes but also as a way to reduce our food wastes. The machine works very well, the drying result is even (which is not always the case with other dehydrators I used in the past). I recommend Sedona for those who want something high quality, quiet, simple to use and reliable.

I love Sedona :)

Very good quality equipment.
I would not use a different brand. It´is not just only to dehydrate food, there is an incredible broad range of things you can make with it.
It's very silent, which is a very good thing!
It´s easy to function.
It is not very big.
Love Sedona!

Sedona CAN buy happiness

It's awesome, if you're into dehydrating due to the raw food movement or whatever other reason. Just get this, don't get something cheap. Why...
It looks nice, it's economical/environmental , it works extremely well.
So, you can adjust heat and timing. Also it has 2 fans upper and lower, you can adjust that as well if you only want to use half the machine (economical/environmental ).
You can also adjust day and night setting (how loud the fans go)
This is new to me, had it for 3-4 days and have used those 3-4 days and will continue to for prepping raw meals etc.

Part of a conscious way of life

Easy to use, effective and reliable, the Sedona is a wonderful kitchen appliance.

We use it weekly and find joy in sharing the marvellous, non-industrial produce that we create with our friends, family and clients.

Everyone loves the taste, freshness and quality of all of the many diverse items that we make. We're always being asked 'What are you going to make next?', and we enjoy surprising people with the diversity of seasonal items that we're able to prepare in a relatively short period of time.

The Raw feature is absolutely amazing and helps to maintain the freshness of the food, which is an essential aspect of on going, conscious nutrition.

Well worth the investment and an assuredly welcome addition to our cooking regime.

Very happy with my Sedona dehydrator

I love my Sedona. It's quieter than my other dehydrator, and I love the ability to use just half of the space if that's all I need, saving on power. It's glass door means I can see with ease what stage my food is at and the controls are at the front so I can have it in the microwave alcove and adjust time and temperature settings easily. Yes it costs more than the others but is worth it in my opinion.

Raw foodie heaven!!!

I purchased my Sedona a few years back and have been grateful of my choice ever since. After trying countless other cheaper dehydrators (all of which failed or didn't produce the results I wanted) the Sedona came out on top. Although not to everybody's price point, it was well worth it. Temperature control and a decent amount of trays (plus the size of each tray is perfect with smaller hole tray inserts to avoid your food sagging through the larger ones). Being a raw foodie I'm now able to make dried fruit Wraps, vegan sandwich Wraps and various other goodies. Thumbs up on this baby! Definitely my most used kitchen appliance. No regrets here!

The Rolls Royce of Dehydrators

I absolutely love my Sedona Dehydrator. I'm a raw foodie and have used several dehydrators previously to this and Sedona is by far the highest quality with the most user friendly features. I love the opening glass door and digital control panel along with its whisper quiet operation. Other dehydrators I have used have control panels at the back and have annoying doors which need to be lifted off and placed on the bench. Another feature I love is the dual fans which is great for saving energy when making smaller batches. I highly recommend Sedona!

Wonderful Dehydrator

Love this dehydrator and the service from Raw Blend! It's compact enough to have in the kitchen, has 11 trays so I can do a nice batch of crackers, chips,treats, or fruit leathers. The trays have a great lip for easily achieving an even layer for your living crackers! The fan at the back keeps the air flow even and the sequential temp timer allows me to kickstart the process at slightly higher temp and then bring the temp down to low/raw settings, this ensures a wonderful finished product and keeps the living food aspect and the nutritional potency. I also really love the digital display and timer, it's more precise then other dehydrators I have used. All in all this machine ticks all the boxes well for me. Highly recommend.

Better than any dehydrator on the market

I researched and researched, almost bought an excalibur until I read about Sedona. Best Dehydrator on the market, all I can say is buy this one! You will love it, your welcome.

Worth the wait

I reviewed food denydrators extensively, and when I discovered Tribestlife, their product quality and attention to customer service, I decided to purchase from them. Then I discovered that a model with stainless trays would be coming out soon. I pre-ordered and anxiously waited several weeks. Well, it is here, and I LOVE it. It works great, dehydr

ates beautufully, and is pretty darn quiet. Figuring out the temp and time settings took slightly longer than I anticipated, and I only mention this because you will get it figured out after a few tries. Then voila! A wonderful dehydrator. I will purchase from Tribestlife again.
