STX Dehydra 1200w-XLS 10 Tray Food Dehydrator

STX DEHYDRA 1200W-XLS Food Dehydrator

5 / 5 stars      

The STX Dehydra has a timer! You might think that isn`t such a big deal, but a lot – if not most – of the food dehydrators currently on the market don`t have a timer. If you`re on the hunt for the best food dehydrator you can find – and one that meets your specific needs – pay attention to that. I personally find the lack of a timer to be a huge drawback.

The STX Dehydra is a stainless steel food dehydrator, so for those of use with all stainless steel appliances, this could be a nice addition to your kitchen, assuming of course that have the counter space to leave it out. However, a feature that is much more important than how it looks, is the fact that the STX Dehydra is a 1200 watt food dryer. If you`re not sure why that`s important, check the main index page of our dehydrator reviews section. This is the highest wattage food dehydrator that I have reviewed, placing it in the commercial class.


STX Dehydra 1200w-XLS 10 Tray Food Dehydrator Pros & Cons

Pros: Timer – 1200 watts – Commercial grade – Large size – Side mount fan

Cons: it’s loud!


While the illustration of the Dehydra makes it look huge, it is only slightly larger than the Excalibur 3900. The Excalibur is 17 x 19 x 12, while the Dehydra measures 20 x 16 x 15. And since we are making comparisons between the two, it is important to note, that the Excalibur 3900 with all its hype and marketing behind it, only has wattage of 600.

The STX Dehydra has the all important side placement fan – again see the main page of our dehydrator reviews as to why that is important.

Another unique feature. They Dehydra has a drip tray. A lot of other food dehydrators don`t.
