1. Air Fryers Aren’t Good to Make Dehydrate Food
A food dehydrator is fairly similar to an air fryer; they both use air to prepare your food. Other than that, the results you get from both are completely different.
Sure, you can try to dehydrate your fruits on your air fryer. And, according to what David Jarvis, executive chef at Nu Wave and air dryer maker, told Mashed, air fryers will do it. The problem is that an air fryer has more air power than a regular food dehydrator. This means your dry food will move around in the air like it just doesn’t care, making a dehydrated mess.
That being said, if you absolutely need to dehydrate your food, your air fryer will do the trick, but you’ll have to see if you can keep it in place.
