This is the same model dehydrator that we use for baking our own 1/2" video cassettes and reel-to-reel videotapes. Baking recording tapes restores binder properties and allows "sticky shed" tapes to play normally for about 1-2 months.
This dehydrator has been specially modified to accept VHS, Beta and U-Matic videocassettes plus 1/2" reel video tapes. It can also be used on various audio tape formats. We also include a digital thermometer with a remote probe to monitor the baking temperature.
It's simple and easy to use! Just set the dehydrator for 125F and place your tapes on the trays for 8 hours. After the baking cycle, allow the tapes to cool for a few hours and they're ready to play!
