The award-winning IR D5 is the only dehydrator in the world that offers both a solar and shade dehydrating method in one machine.
The solar mode makes use of NIR (Near Infra-Red) and has the same effect on food as sun rays. The NIR helps preserve the Vitamin D content in the foods as well as other nutrients and minerals. In foods, such as peach, meat and fish NIR helps prevent decomposition. In this mode, you can make your own delicious sun-dried tomatoes, beef jerky and other foods that need a little extra solar heat to give them that tasty texture and flavor.
This is the mode selected when food needs to be dried with a controlled heat and air circulation, this is a good option for raw recipes. This mode is ideal for making raw food recipes such as kale chips, fruit leathers etc. With the improved temperature control system, temperatures can be controlled and kept even throughout the dehydration process.
The newest IR D5 dehydrator is a combination innovative technology and modern design. It features two different modes of drying never seen before in dehydrators: Solar and Shade. These dehydrators are made of high quality, durable materials and have stainless steel trays for hygienic use. The enclosed, oven-like design enhances the air circulation inside the chamber.
The IR D5 dehydrator has won various prestigious awards and recognized globally for its’ innovative functions & excellent design.
With the IR D5 dehydrator you can preserve foods without having to worry about hazardous additives. Dehydrating is an excellent way of preserving nutrients naturally present in the foods, only 3 to 4% of the nutrients are lost during the dehydration process. This is because foods are dried gentle temperatures which prevents the heat from destroying enzymes. In Solar mode you can preserve higher rates of vitamin C and D.
Let IR D5’s integrated onboard computer and humidity (moisture) sensor do the work for you in Automatic mode. With one push on the AUTO button, the dehydrator will automatically set itself to Solar mode and temperature to 70 Cº. The sensor will gauge moisture levels in the drying chamber and stop the drying process as soon as moisture levels have reached 3% or lower.
