Making dried tomato with a tomato dehydrator is an excellent way to preserve tomatoes for longer storage without deteriorating taste. Drying tomato is done in about 18 hours with this type of dehydrator. The moisture content in the soil is reduced making it easier to dry tomatoes naturally. The ratio of finished products/raw materials is also 8:1; resulting in a high-quality dried tomato product with no deterioration of taste.
How to Use Features Of A Tomato Dehydrator To Make Your Cooking Easier
In estimating the estimated performance of this tomato dehydrator, it is important to know how much actual output of dried tomatoes will be produced. The estimated amount is based on one pound of tomato, five to ten inches of space in the pan and level of the food. This equipment has different specifications as indicated in the instruction manual. The first thing that one needs to know is the estimated amount of tomato one is going to process; next thing is to find the approximate temperature range in which the machine will operate; finally one must find the best mode of drying to be used. These factors play important roles in determining the expected outcome.
According to the specification of the manufacturer, this model of dehydrator should have enough cooling fan made of either ductless or convection to ensure that the temperature inside the food chamber is maintained constantly. This type of dehydrator comes with controls which control the flow rate of the air, speed of drying and the estimated time taken for drying the product. This type of machine is suitable for drying large pieces of tomato. Drying speed can be adjusted according to the drying time and the estimated drying period. The flow rate of the cooling fan should also be adjusted depending on the type of tomato.
