Dehydrator Temperatures with Conversion Chart

Dehydrating Temperatures in Fahrenheit and Celsius with a list of
corresponding common foods.

Dehydrating food is very different from cooking, but it’s just as important to set and use the correct temperature. This conversion chart shows the Fahrenheit and Celsius readings for common food settings. Temperatures are rounded to the nearest safe setting.

Most food dehydration guides seem to use Fahrenheit as their temperature scale. Since machines in other countries are in Celsius, this chart helps to convert temperatures for procedures, how-tos, and recipes. This conversion chart is an aid to keep in the kitchen for your dehydrating needs.

Most dehydrators don’t run at a steady temperature, but rather in a range that can vary as much as 10 degrees Fahrenheit/12 degrees Celsius either side of the setting. The temperatures listed are the “optimal” standardized settings.

    After dehydrating meat do you heat it in an oven to kill any left over bacteria or would a salt marinade do the trick. Thanks for the chart.

      Meat needs to be brought up to temp before dehydrating to be safe. See the article on our website 🙂
