View Full Version : Bear with me..very new

Hi I am brand new to the raw lifestyle and was wondering if I would be able to replace a dehydrator (until I get one) with a regular convection oven set at a low setting? What is the difference?

I've heard that you can't set a convection oven low enough to keep the food raw. Nevertheless, you can simply use the oven light (keeping the oven off). I've never tried this though.

What is the temp range for raw? I believe I can set my convection at 150

I have heard anything more then 105 from some people and others say 115 I believe. Isn't that the way it always is? Always differing opinions. I did hear the light bulb in the oven trick is ok to use. Someone tried it by putting a thermometer in their oven.

Food held at 118 for thirty minuits looses all of its enzimes

Alissa says 112 degrees in her book.

I tried to keep my regular oven below 110 using an inside the oven thermometer, and I could not. It seemed like the oven's internal thermometer was determined to get the inside temp up to 150....I ended up cooking my freshly sprouted buckwheat :mad: I was really upset, because I kept watching the oven, opening the door (I even fanned the oven trying to cool it off)...nothing worked.....I'll be checking into a dehydrator. Don't know if this helps, but that's just my experience.
