I was searching the net for where to buy a dehydrator in Edmonton, when I came upon a Prepper's supply house in disguise!
In my google search, I found Barb's Kitchen Centre Barbskitchen.com also known as The Bosch Kitchen Centre.
The website had Nesco/American Harvest dehydrators, but I was very underwhelemed by the site. UNTIL I clicked on the link for FOOD in the banner. When the food page loaded I found a few headings such as Rice and Beans, and Seeds. I then decided that I had to check out the store.
I went into Edmonton the next day, and to my surprise found a store that I used to drive by every day on my way to work, a few years ago.
We went in to check it out and were helped by a very friendly young lady who answered all my dumb questions with a smile.
I found 3 different dehydrators:
Snackmaster 500 watts (4 trays, 1 fruit leather sheet, 1 mesh tray and cookbook are included). Expandable to 12 trays. $69.95
GardenMaster 1000 watts (4 trays, 1 fruit leather sheet, 1 mesh tray and cookbook are included). Expandable to 30 trays. $149.00
Gardenmaster 1000 watts 8 tray professional model (includes 8 fruit leather sheets, 8 mesh trays and cookbook. Expandable to 30 trays. $199.00
I also found:
NutriMill Flour Mill $299.99
All new Revolutionary Microburst High Speed Mill
World's first variable high speed mill motor
Texture control - from fine flour to cereal grain
Trugrind milling system
Multi- postion exhaust for smoother, cleaner, quieter airflow
Bowl capacity 20 cups
One hopper of grain fills one bowl of flour
Simple to operate
Mills grains, beans, corn, rice
Convenient cord storage
Limited lifetime warranty
as well as the Back to Basics mill for $99.
Then the helpful young lady took us back and showed us the Food Room... All different types of grains, rice, beans, corn, and other wonderful goodies... The grains and rice and stuff are packaged in small bags, but apparently they have up to 50 lb bags of the items in the back, and give bulk discounts.
In addition to this, I even found the Egg McMuffin maker i promised to buy my mom http://www0.shopping.com/xPO-Back-to-Basics-TEM-500 (we have one, it's so awesome, now I want this http://www0.shopping.com/xPO-Back-to-Basics-Back-to-Basic-Egg-N-Muffin-4-Slice-Toaster-2-Egg-Cooker which they also sell!)
All in all, an excellent find, and if you're in Edmonton, go check it out!
