Charles Jacobs Food Dehydrator with Thermostat in White – 24 Month 5STAR Warranty

71hnKIzPRbL._SL1500_
Dehydrating food opens a whole new dimension in preserving fruits, vegetables and meats.

This amazing Charles Jacobs Food Dehydrator with adjustable trays will be able to perfectly capture the freshly-picked, in-season flavour and nutrition of almost any food. Dried foods are easier to store compared to non-dried products as they take up much less storage space and are less likely to spoil. They also weigh less, which makes them perfect for taking on camping or backpacking trips. Dried fruit snacks are both delicious and nutritious, so what better way than to make your own? Ingredients for your favourite recipes can be dried and stored which make great last-minute meals, ready to cook for your convenience.

Easy to use and so convenient, simply prepare the food and place on the trays. The heat which flows through will dry away moisture while locking in flavour. This food dehydrator comes with 5 rotatable, removable trays.

Shef Electric Food & Fruit Dehydrator, Dryer Preserver Machine with Adjustable Temperature Control

A food dehydrator slowly extracts moisture & preserves foods by using low levels of heat (35-70 °C). Removing the moisture inhibits the growth of bacteria and helps to preserve the food.
The food dehydrator has 5 tiers for conveniently preserving multiple food types, with an adjustable temperature control allowing you to dry different types of food at the correct temperatures. Built in is the motor, fan and ventilating function, as well as a safety overheating protection device. The drying trays are easy to wash and measure 31cm diameter and 3.5cm deep, so that thicker cut foods can be used without hassle.

Dehydrating food is practiced around the world as a natural method of preservation, which dates back to ancient times, and makes a healthy snack, helping incorporate healthier foods into your or your children’s diet. Drying food both reduces the size (allowing for easier storage in jars/lunchboxes) and retains the healthiness (vitamins, nutrients and minerals) of fruit and vegetables.
Dehydrating is also great for extending fruit seasons, so you can have great food year-round.

3 in 1 Food Stand Mixer, Blender,Meat Grinder 5L in Red, 1200W w/Splash Guard £99.99

I’ve been thinking about buying a stand mixer for a long time but kept putting it off, but I’m looking to replace my hand mincer with an electric one, when I saw the price I decided that it was worth spending a few extra quid and buying a 3 in 1 mixer, I also get frustrated on how long it takes my bread maker to make dough, as I usualy bake it in the oven and not in the machine. £99.99 a saving of £200

This Charles Jacobs stand mixer boasts amazing features and performance. Inside its burly housing is a solid steel direct drive transmission that delivers 6 speeds straight from the 800-watt motor. Having those different speeds allows you to use the correct amount of power for everything from egg whites to bread dough. As far as bread dough goes, its large-capacity bowl holds enough for two loaves of bread or about 8-9 dozen biscuits. Adding optional attachments to the power hub virtually transforms the Charles Jacobs’s corner of your countertop into a professional kitchen worthy of any caterer or bakery. A Charles Jacobs mixer is a seriously versatile piece of equipment that will similarly expand your culinary capabilities.
