Anyone ever use a Food Dryer to help fodant cut outs dry faster? I wonder if this is possible?

you mean like a food dehydrator? i've always been curious but never got enough motivation to dig mine out from the back of the cupboards!

I finally bought one and used it last weekend. I do not have central air, it was 95 plus degrees, and very humid. I put pieces made from MMF with a bit of tylose added into the dehydrator. It worked beautifully! I was sure that once I took them out of the dehydrator they would soften again, but they didn't. I've dried pieces under a lamp and in my oven before but they always soften again once they are taken out from the heat source. I've even dried pieces by placing them in a small closed room with a dehumidifier. They, too, softened, when removed from the controlled environment.

The dehydrator is wonderful for drying pieces. I highly recommend it!

Excellent! Thank you! About how long do you leave it in the food dehydrater? Couple of days?
