Drying technology Nesco FD-75a

Drying technology
Patented Converge-Flow drying system

The Nesco FD-75a dehydrator has a fan and heater located at the top of the folded trays. The patented Converge-Flow drying system forces air into the external chamber under pressure rather than through trays.

Hot air is directed horizontally through each tray, converging towards the core, ensuring fast, even, and nutritious drying—no mixing of flavors and no need to flip trays.

The power supply on the top of the device can be easily removed from the trays using the integrated handle. The location of the fan and motor on top of the machine means they stay clean – food cannot be spilled or dripped down onto them. As with all stacking designs, you only need to use as many trays as you need.

The Nesco FD-75a Snackmaster Pro food dehydrator dries your favorite meals in just a few hours.

An adjustable thermostat allows you to dry various foods at the correct temperature (95-160 F). The Nesco FD-75a control devices are located on the top of the machine, on the power unit that contains the fan and heater. No automatic timer or power switch. The temperature controller only ranges from 95 F – 160 F (35 C – 71 C), which meets food dehydration standards.

How do make dried herbs and flowers at home?

Many dehydrator users would like to dry foods that take a long time to dry at night. You could load the groceries and go to bed with the finished product in the morning.

The absence of an automatic timer for stopping the operation of the dehydrator does not allow leaving it turned on for a long time unattended. This can lead to spoilage of the finished product. Alternatively, you may need a timing device if you want to integrate an automatic shutdown function.

Cleaning and maintenance

The trays for the Nesco FD-75a are dishwasher safe as long as the dishwasher is set to “passive dry.” The trays are removed from the dishwasher before drying. Since the trays are relatively small, you can quickly soak them in the sink for several hours, making cleaning much more accessible.
