Does anyone use the oven to dehydrate food successfully? I would love to do this with onion, green peppers and possibly celery ... to start.

Thanks in advance for your comments and tips.  Wink

I've dried tomatoes and fruit leather in my gas oven successfully.  Never tried peppers or onions though. I briefly explained the process I use in my response to this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336187.10

I've dried lots and lots of things in the oven. I have never had the quality results from the oven that I get with my dehydrator. Oven dried foods tend to brown and lose flavor. It can be done, but the results will never be as good as in a dehydrator. The key to drying foods is regulated temperature and airflow.
