The dehydration speed is very slow, but you can put 4 items in it at the same time. You can however, speed up the drying process using the following methods:

If the dehydrator is outside (In open air):

  • Dries food faster on a sunny day.
  • Progress bar is going backwards on a rainy day until it reaches 0 (Already dried food stays dried!).

To get the same speed boost on a sunny day in open air and just no speed boost on a rainy day (No backwards progress), try putting glass above it.

To highly speed up the process, you can use a flamable fuel source.

Light source

Dehydrators emit a light level of 13 when burning.


Dehydrators emit smoke and flame particles when burning.


The Dehydrator doesn't use any fuel for drying food. However, to speed up the drying process, payers can still put in a flamable fuel source.

Dehydratable stuff

Dehydratable stuff are items or blocks that can be dried in the dehydrator.
