1 ball revivor

Post by clatara »

Hi there,
Does anybody know the power of single ball Revivor by Innovative ? The 2 ball Revivor oven power is 900 Watts ( we have two ). We need to know the power of 1 ball oven in order to choose the suitable trasformer as this oven is manufactured in 110 V version and we are in Europe ( 220 V). Thanks for reply.

Have you not yet purchased the single ball Revivor?
The power requirements should be listed on the unit.

I couldn't find anything for the power requirements of the single ball reviver.

I did find this...
https://www.homedepot.com/p/CHEFWAVE-Se ... 38#overlay
It is a food dehydrator and I suspect an appliance like this has just been repurposed and relabeled for Innovative.
Rated at 600 W
I would just size it for the 2 ball unit.

So I did a quick search for transformers and found this...

https://www.amazon.com/SIMRAN-THG-3000- ... 57835&th=1

It will handle more than enough power for the Revivor.
Don't cut it too close when sizing the Wattage or run risk of blowing the fuses.
Thus my recommendation for the 2000W transformer.
Maybe you get an Innovative ball spinner too.
If that is an option I would go with the 3000W and spend another $20

I think I found the one ball revivor here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Dehydrator-Profe ... e904010ad0

You can tell it is the same based on the vent pattern on the side, the handle, and the digital display.

It is 650 Watts.

Its $77 US with a 50% coupon right now. Save your $163 to buy your transformer.

Not purchased yet the 1 ball Revivor. We have the 2 ball Revivor ( since 2002) and it is 900 Watt at 7.7 Ampere....so we use a 1250 VA transformer. We would assume the wattage of 1 ball model should be around 600 Watt...but we sent email to Innovative and got no reply so far.
The 1 ball Revivor is requested by a bowler in Naples and before place an order for it we want to know what transformer suggest him to buy.

Inspired by the $77 cost, I picked up the Amazon food dehydrator version of this oil remover.

It is a model SF602 machine labeled Likein and Intertek. The rated power is 650W. There is no amperage in the paperwork, so it is likely that Innovative doesn't know.

The machine looks identical to the Innovative one ball machine. Fits a ball and a ball cup inside with no issues.

Bought at Amazon a fruit dehydration oven 220 V. Made in China. Price 200 euro.
Already shipped to customer in Naples. He tested it and
Very satisfied, deoling suggested temp. 55/60 celsius.
