can i use oven for dehydration

I dont have a dehydrator (yet, I ordered one) and neither do I have sunshine to dry them outside. Can I use the oven just for this one time, i already sokaed my buckwheat and really would like to use it as breakfast cerial tomorrow…thanks for the help. Nothing came up when i searched for this issue. Thanks alot.


  • Until your dehydrator arrives. You could use your oven on the lowest setting with the door jarred open. From what I understand the oven should not get hot inside, just warm. Some people have placed fans outside the oven to circulate the air. Others have placed thermometers inside the oven to keep track of the temperature.

    Please, know I have not tried this myself. So, I hope this helps.
