I’m looking for a Breville food dehydrator. Do you have a review for that?
Thanks for asking! I get this question a lot, but unfortunately, Breville does not make a food dehydrator. However, you might want to check out my review of the Breville Smart Oven. It’s a combination convection/toaster oven, and a lot of people claim it can be successfully used to dehydrate food. Of course, it doesn’t have nearly the space of a regular food dehydrator, and even the lowest temperature setting may still be too high for delicate foods. But then, if you don’t plan to do a lot of dehydrating, the Smart Oven might serve the purpose, and at the same time it would give you lots of other cooking options.
Thank you for visiting our site, and happy cooking!
