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.
