If you have the room and the amps, the larger ones are nicer for quantities. Do get the Teflon sheets
for fruit rollups, soups, etc. figure a serving per tray in yield. They also put humidity and heat in the air so you may want to dry in the cockpit
. There are also a lot of raw food recipes
where they use the unit like an oven
to keep temps below 120 to preserve enzymes for fresh foods. I usually cook a big meal and preserve additional meals
. I have a vacuum sealer (Costco) for that. Also check out the Mormons for recipes
, sources and preservation techniques, they have been preserving for years as part of their religion.
