How To: Use Your Air-Fryer As A Dehydrator

August 25, 2021

At Mistral, we’re committed to showing you that our Air-Fryers really can ‘do it all.’ In fact, one
of the many hidden talents of your Air-Fryer could be staring you right in the face, but you’ve
never thought to try it out!
De-hydrating fruit, vegetables and cured meats is the perfect way to garnish dishes, drinks,
and has become an integral part in making the perfect healthy after-school snack.
In a traditional De-Hydrating Machine, food can take anywhere from 4-40 hours to
completely de-hydrate—whereas an Air-Fryer uses circulated hot-air technology to speed
this process up for you. So, why not try it out for yourself?

How To:

  • Thinly slice your fruit, vegetables or cured meat and set aside. We recommend small
    batches, to ensure that your food is de-hydrated evenly.
  • Set your Mistral 16 Litre Multi-Function Digital Air-Fryer Oven to 45 degrees.
    Please note: if you set your air-fryer over this temperature, your food will cook
    instead of de-hydrate!
  • This process works best when food is evenly distributed across a steam rack or shelf.
  • Depending on your chosen food, de-hydrate for about an hour—checking regularly. If
    your food has a lot of moisture, this process will take a little bit longer.
