Aroma Housewares AFD-615 5-Tier Rotating Food Dehydrator – fast

This dryer was one of the best things i have bought in a longtime. The one i had previous took twice as long to dry than this modeli made batches of jerkey and it was done in half the time of the old one. I think thats do to the rotation ofthe tiers,how long will it last is a matter of time i hope forever,if not i will purchase another.

I ordered this dehydrator to make beef jerky. I’ve made five or six batches so far, have liked the results, and have not experienced any problems. The instructions need to be improved though. While there is only one power setting (on or off), you have the option of creating vent space between stacked trays, or not having vent space. I can’t find anything in the instructions about when you would or would not want to increase the height of the stack to create vent space. This has lead to me experimenting, and getting wildly different dry times. I’m still not sure what the best way to do it is, but it does seem to have a big effect on drying time. All the batches have been dried properly, i just have no idea when they will be done.

All descriptions of electrical appliances should state the watts consumed and the area of shelf space. We want to buy the most efficient but only some include that information now. Here are the specifications for the Aroma Housewares AFD-615 5-Tier Rotating Food Dehydrator:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Large capacity
  • Simple, one-touch operation
  • 5 rotating trays with automatic dual-rotation
  • Clear vented lid for easy monitoring
  • Great for trail mix, dried fruits and vegetables, beef jerky, custom potpourri, dried herbs and spices and so much more!
  • Includes 5 adjustable-height trays, 1 fruit roll sheet and 1 drying screen

I was hesitant to buy reading what some of the past reviewers had written but i feel like i did well here. The thing was well packed from the factory and amazon threw it in another box for good measure. That is why i like amazon they don’t mind adding a box if it will prevent a return. The dehydrator itself is a very simple and easy to use device, stack food you want to dry on the trays, hit the switch and watch it spin for 30 minutes in a hypnotic trance. (that last part is optional). It gets up to operating temp quickly and is relatively quiet. It has a blower and moving plastic parts people- it’s not silent. It was really squeaky at first but after running for a few hours it got much much quieter, can’t hear it running in the next room. The way people had said the trays were broken etc i expected part of the thing to be glass but all the parts are plastic.

This item was packaged well, arrived in one piece, and was easy to assemble. During use the blower isn’t really that loud, kind of sounds like a muffled hair drier. However, there is a serious fault with the item. The racks are rotated by a center pivot. The bottom tray locks into the the square pivot, and there is a series of wheels that it rests on so that the tiers can spin. On my unit, the pivot is slightly off center, which means that one side of the trays is loose from the bottom, and the other side is rubbing against the side of the bottom (which squeaks). At first, i thought that the tray was warped, but you can see that the pivot is off by 3-5 mm. Because when the trays rotate, they bind, which means that they stop rotating, and the food isn’t evenly dehydrated. The warm blower is only in part of the base, so if the machine stops, you will get a quarter of the tray dry, and the rest is still moist.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • My Older One Was Better Quality
  • nothing missing, nothing broken, works perfectly, making jerky right now!
  • Multiple Tiers (5) in this Food Hydrator

This was a gift to my dad; he really likes it, but it took 24hrs for it to fully cook his jerky. So, if you want a dehydrator specifically for jerky & don’t want to wait an entire day, get a dehydrator that has control settings on it.

Dried carrot pulp & parsley overnight. Comes with the fruit leather dry & a small mesh screen for drying things like herbs & carrot pulp.

This was a gift for my daughter who lives in another state. She and her friends have been having a great time making jerky, dried fruits and veggies for their camping trips.

Great way to preserve and store seasonal vegetables, fruits, and even frozen baggedvegetables. Can mix the array of veggies, fruits, depending upon your supply onhand when wanting to save and store foods for future rehydrating for quick meals. This is possible, using the aroma afd-615 5-tier rotating food dehydrator. Bigtrays for dehydrating large amounts of foods at once. Saving valuable time from repetative preparing, dehydrating, and cleaning of utensils. Packaging of this item was excellent and have no complaints with the way itfunctions. I did take a tip from another reviewer and put a little vegetable oilover the rotation part and have no ‘sqeaking sound’ at all. Now, i’m off to dehydrate some potatoes today.

Does a much nicer job of drying.

We have dried mushrooms (my wife is russian and knows the difference between good and bad mushrooms), made beef jerky and dried bananas and other fruit.

The trays are made of #7 plastic if i knew i would not purchase this. I am an organic vegan converting to raw and it makes no sense to eat food with bpa leeched into it =(. I am going to save up for an excalibur realizing this doesn’t really hold that much.

If it were not for the directions that come with this item it would be 5 star. I had to spend a lot of time finding how to use it on the internet. I find it almost useless at this time for drying fruit. Maybe i will get some more info to help me figure out how to do that. So far after cooking bananas and apples for over 20 hours each, i still do not get the desired results. Meat (beef) however comes out the way i like it.

I read the reviews on this product before purchasing and was a little skeptical noting the squeeking and the ‘easily breakable’ trays. I haven’t broken a tray yet, just be gentle with them. As for the squeek, try a little pam on the wheels under the bottom tray and the squeeks are gone. The only thing i would consider differently in the future is purchasing a unit with a built in timer.

I use this product rather often to make my special beef jerky. Mmmmmm the product works well and has caused no concerns or troubles. The only negative comment is that is a bit under powered for humid regions that only means longer drying times than you might expect).

I purchased this dehydrator from amazon back in 2011. I have since then, used this almost atleast 1 to 2 times monthly. There has yet to be any flaws with it. It arrived well packaged and everything was there. I immediately washed it and put it to use. I have made anything from deer jerkey, beef jerky, dried fruit and vegetables, to turkey, chicken, and buffalo jerkey. I am an avid hunter and use this quite often. The machine is simple to use with only one plug and a power button. The only downside to this dehydrator is that the bottom tray can only be used on the bottom. This is due to the notches it has to keep it turning.

I ordered this because i wanted to make jerky for my grandson who is serving in afghanistan. There is a family history of hypertension so i wanted to make sure he didn’t have too much sodium in the jerky i sent. This was a very easy way to do that because i could control the amount of salt used. This is easy to use and clean and the directions for use are easy to understand. The price is good and the shipping was well packaged and quick. The only down side i could see is that the instruction booklet did not include any recipes, but that was easily remedied by searching the web.

Originally bought the dehydrator for some serious jerky making, but the roomies have used it for fruit and veggies, too. Only thing is the trays are a pain to clean. I’m currently enjoying pieces from our fourth batch of beef jerky.

I have tried a lot of fruit and vegetable dryers but this one is the best. The constant rotation dries pretty evenly top to bottom. I still rotate the racks as the bottom dries faster but love that it is so fast. I’ll never buy one that is stationery again.

I have an aroma dehydrator that i love, but my bottom tray broke. Anyone know where to get more trays for this brand?.

I read a lot of reviews about this dehydrator before i bought it, and honestly most of them were very misleading. I got my dehydrator in perfect condition. It works awesome, and it’s very cheap. I have already made beef jerky and apple chips in my dehydrator. The first batch of jerky kinda sucked because i didn’t read the directions that come with the dehydrator, but the second batch was freaking awesome. I think that with this dehydrator you more then get your moneys worth.

Nesco American Harvest FD-50 Snackmaster Pro 4-Tray Dehydrator : I love my dehydrator!

This was bought for my father to replace a warn out one.

This is my 2nd snackmaster pro – i’ve made hundreds of pounds of jerky and dried fruit on this machine.

This is my first dehydrator and it works great. Easy cleanup and easy to use.

We have been very satisfied with this dehydrator. It works well and does everything it claims to do. Not all of the parts are dishwasher safe which is the only drawback we found.

  • Still works like new after a decade
  • A Pretty Good Option
  • If you love fruits, you’ll love this!

Nesco American Harvest FD-50 Snackmaster Pro 4-Tray Dehydrator

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 500 watts of power dries foods and flowers quickly and evenly
  • Dehydrator measures 13-1/2 by 8-1/4 inches; four trays are each 12-3/4 by 1/2 inches
  • Patented system pressurizes heated air up through and across each tray
  • Thermostat adjusts from 95 degrees up to 145 degrees
  • Dehydrate fruits, vegetables, herbs, jerky, granola for camping, hiking, and other outdoor activities

I suspect the model currently pictured (with red “nesco”) is actually model fd-40. Model fd-50 is my first dehydrator, and i’ve had it for two years. I’ve dried a lot of tomatoes. Also have dried apricots, zucchini chips, and herbs (some won ribbons at the county fair, in fact).

I’ve had this dehydrator for over a decade and it still works exactly like the day i bought it. Pros:* it is really easy to use and has the right amount of temperature settings* because of the way the trays stack it is very easy to clean. * you can also buy additional trays to expand the size. Cons* because of the way it is built you have to un-stack to check on what you are dehydrating instead of just looking into a window.

I wanted a dehydrator after borrowing a neighbors and after reading many reviews decided on this one (though i bought it at walmart). My husband and daughter love apples and go thru them so fast i can’t keep up. The book was very helpful and easy to use. The trays are easy to clean and so far everything has been great. The only thing i would like to change is that the trays were dishwashable and that if it had an on/off switch. I’m not keen on electronics that you just plug in and unplug without an on/off switch. Other than that, we use it often.

I had messed with some cheaper dehydrators in the past and when i discovered my last one dead i went out and got this one. I was shocked by the performance difference. This thing is fast and even. Does jerky in 4hrs and applechips in less than 6. In some ways i wish i had gotten the larger one as the diameter of the trays combined with the hole in the middle sometimes makes it difficult to place larger items, but then it stores well. I got the nesco jerky kit along with it and it really does work (i have reviewd the jerky kit seperately). My only wish is that this had an off switch. I feel asleep one evening and forgot it was running and then next morning everything was ruined. Since then i have learned to use a light timer.

The product works great, but don’t expect tasty treats any time soon. We found that using the lowest heat setting and letting fruit go for 24 hours works best. Caution: buy your fruit slowly or it will go bad waiting for its turn in the dehydrator (or you can always buy more racks, but then add more time to the dehydrating time).

I had purchased this dehydrator at a retail store for more than it is offered here, but it is worth it. I sit in an office chair all day and tend to get a case of the “munchies” during the day. I used to buy candy bar after candy bar, which in turn put a few pounds on me as well. With the dehydrator i can make healthy foods to snack on that are good tasting and economical. I would suggest to anyone looking to save a few dollars and a few inches on the waistline to invest in one.

This is my first experience with dehydrators but i wanted to make deer jerky so bad that i bought this one after looking a lot thorugh the different models. This is a basic, no frills model but it seemed to do the job very nicely. I do not know what the more expensice models give you but i doubt if much more. The meat was dehydrated in 5-7 hours and it came out perfect. Negatives: the fan is loud and could be heard from other rooms. A nice feature to have would have been a built in timer instead of having to buy an external one.

Bought this for my mother to replace her old one. Will buy it again when this one dies.

I have used it for fruit and for herbs. It is easy to use, no moving trays. The thermostat is easily marked for particular item, ie. Fruit, vegetables, herbs, etc. The trays have been easy to clean. The book is very easy to dicipher, with clear directions and recipes. I heartily endorse this item.

This nesco food de-hydrator works well and does an excellent job. There are newer, larger and more powerful models available, but this does a good job for me.

I’ve owned this dehydrator for awhile and have been pretty pleased with it’s perfomance overall. I found the art of drying to be challenging, fun, and productive. I make a lot of fruit leathers, jerkies, dried sauces, and dried soups. My next challenge with this unit is to make “just add water” meals for backpacking trips. It has no problems running for several days in a row and can be trusted to run overnight or while at work. I was happy with the manual that came with it – it has many expected drying times for most common fruits, vegetables, meats – though the time windows are somewhat broad. 8-16 hours) the unit comes with one fruit leather tray and one clean-a-screen sheet – something that’s not mentioned on amazon’s description. You will quickly find that more trays are an essential – it doesn’t seem powerful enough to dry the full 12 trays it’s rated for.

I use this mostly for jerky but occasionally for other foods. Unlike some dehydrators, this one has variable heat settings. I’ve loaned mine out several times and each time the person has bought one for their own household. I figure that’s the best review of all.

Actually is hard to get snack food without preservatives or anyother dangerus additives, so you have to create your snacks by yourself. Nesco is a great tool to improve family’s diet. I live in costa rica and i have used with wide range of tropical fruits like mango, papaya etc. It always does an outstanding performance.

I decided to buy a food dehydrator because we spend a fortune in dried fruit and it is the only type of fruit my toddler will eat without throwing a tantrum. I bought this based on the good reviews and dried some canned pineapple, fresh pears, strawberries, and bananas on my first use. I spaced everything so that no food touched, checked the drying at 6, 8 and 10 hours. It took about 10 hrs for everything to be dried and they turned out great. This was my only negative: the drying time ranges so much in the instructions that being a first timer, i kept checking and that may actually have prolonged some of it. There is a blurb in there about writing down the times specific to the place (and climate) you live in, so i will just do that next time. Otherwise, i was pleased with the results and so was the family judging by how fast that first batch is going.

This was our first time buying a dehydrator and this proved to be a good choice. It requires little assembly and the booklet provides good information including instructions and recipes. The applicance is quiet and easy to use. It is quite useful for those who grow their own fruits and vegetables and can be overwhelmed with the size of the bounty and cannot eat everything while it is still fresh. The times vary so you have to experiment and figure out what works best each time you do it and making fruit leather takes a bit of practice. Overall, i found this product to be a good buy and would recommend it to others.

I’m a raw foodist, and it works well enough for me. I’ve had other raw foodist tell me to never buy a round dehydrator; but i’m also a backpacker, and this was a popular choice with them–and more reasonably priced. This version does have a temperature adjuster–important to raw foodists.

I bought this dehydrator on the recommendations of all the reviewers and i have been totally pleased with it. I have tried tomotoes, mangos, bananas and jerky. The only drawback to this is the fact that drying food is more an art than a science. I have done 3 batches of jerky, and each time it gets better, but still too dry. I am narrowing the drying times down to within a few hours, but still not quite perfect. Other than the on-the-job-training in drying times, this works quite well. I am please with it and would recommend it to anyone. The plus is that i have even found accesories for it at wal-mart.

I bought this dehydrator to make beef jerky and have made about 4 pounds so far. It works just as advertised.

Excalibur D500SHD 5-Tray Electric Food Dehydrator – Great product.

Great dehydrator but was too small to meet my needs.

The first thing i would make would be beef jerky. I would love one of these for fruit leathers and herbs as well.

The first thing i’d make with this is dried apples and pears, followed up with dried bananas the way my grandma used to make them. Here are the specifications for the Excalibur D500SHD 5-Tray Electric Food Dehydrator:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 5 stainless steel tray dehydrator with 8 square feet of drying space
  • 5″ fan for increased air circulation
  • Adjustable thermostat and 26-hour timer
  • 10-year limited warranty
  • Includes Guide to Dehydration and Preserve It Naturally

I can’t wait to get one, the 1st thing i’d make is sugar-free candied fruit for my kids.

I have a few friends that own these dehydrators for those looking for actual users. But my friends use them and are very happy with them. One of the tends to dry a lot of food on a regular basis. So yes they are a great product. I have seen how the work and they are very efficient.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Kale Chip Conundrum
  • Five Stars
  • Four Stars

This is something that i would love to have. It would save my family so much money and i have a recipe for vegetable chips that my friend who is gluten free can actually have :d i really want to do them, and make yummy fruit leather, dried fruits, jerky.

I bought this item before i realized that getting fresh organic fruits and vegetables would not be easy to get. The company was great to deal with and took it back with a full refund. I will buy from them again and amazon.

I used to make jerky on a cheep drier where you had to keep rotating the trays. Can’t wait to try this product.

Cant wait to try it when i am making some dried tomatoes for the first time.

I really want to save money by dehydrating apples and such for healthy snacks and preserving produce when it comes on sale.

Such a nice unit to preserve lots of healthy foods by dehydration. My boys have been begging me to make homemade beef jerkey because they love to camp and love to take jerky on their excursions. So, of course, jerky will be my first thing to dehydrate in this unit.My next thing would be soaked and dehydrated pecans and walnuts because it makes them healthier and oh so yummy.

This is an amazing product that offers a variety of uses for those like myself that are making the choice to have a healthier real food lifestyle. Looking forward to starting my first garden and eating fresh ripe tomatoes off the vine as well as making zesty dehydrated tomatoes that i can use all year round. For now i’ll start with dried apples, then coconut macaroons, then kale chips, then yogurt, oh, the adventure has begun.

I am happy with the way that this dehydrator functions overall. The only reason i rated it a 3 is to bring attention to the spacing inside of the machine. For foods with more bulk like kale and cauliflower it doesn’t work to fill all 5 trays. There isn’t enough space and then the food gets smashed and doesn’t dry as well. People that enjoy kale chips know that you can’t just make 2 trays for a party. I tried making 4 trays and things were cramped and i needed to re situate thingsafter they had cooked for awhile. It worked, but not as smoothly as when i only made 2 trays. I would have ordered the 9 tray, but i noticed all of the complaints about how noisy it was so i opted for the 5 trayknowing i wanted something that i could carry easily and have in a smaller space. Initially the 5 tray doesn’t sound that loud,it’s white noise ish, then you start to notice it. When i have it running in the day i put it in the laundry room and shut the door, thenit’s fine.

Beef jerky will be the first product i make. I have a plastic dehydrator, and can’t wait to pass it on.

I would love to try fruit roll ups with this?. This looks so very easy to do will have to try it.

I can’t wait to try this product. I would have originally bought this to make beef jerky but now that i am trying to get my family to eat healthier the first thing i will try is burritos.

I would love to have this as a staple to my kitchen. I would make dried herbs, fruit jerky, dried fruits, nuts, yogurt drops, beef jerky and more.

I have never owned an excalibur dehydrator because i have i have a nesco american harvester which is a work horse but i cannot do yogurt with it. I have children with a lot of different allergies and i struggle making yogurt. Everyone that i know that has an excalibur loves them and they can do so many different things. So, the first thing that i would make is yogurt.

This is an excellent product. The first thing i would do is dehydrated raw nuts after soaking to get all the best nutrients out of them.

I have the non-stainless excalibur dehydrator. I love it, it has been running constantly almost since the day i purchased it 3yrs ago. Sturdy, dependable, easy to use and clean.

Wish there was a little more room between trays.

Nesco /American Harvest FD-80P 700 Watt Square Food Dehydrator and Jerky Maker : Great Dehydrator

The nesco/american harvest dehydrator works really well. My pups all love the treats that i make in it.

I wish it had more of the fruit roll sheets, or the option to buy them separately. Otherwise it is a good machine, noise is minimal.

Nesco/American Harvest FD-80P 700 Watt Square Food Dehydrator and Jerky Maker

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 700 watts of drying power
  • Expandable to 8 trays
  • Adjustable Thermostat
  • Converga-Flow drying action
  • Made in USA

We’ve used this a couple years now. Works great for drying out jerky and fruit.

I havn’t had a lot of time to play with this yet. From what i hear it’s amazing. I will have to review it again at a later time once i have some experience with it.

Did an excellent job dehydrating tomatoes and onions for use this winter.

Nesco/American Harvest FD-80P 700 Watt Square Food Dehydrator and Jerky Maker : For convenients it would be nice to have an on / off switch.

Wow, love it very nice fast shipping. I have use before works great and would order again. Very nice and really happy w it.

Ordered this to make deer jerky. My husband found this product very easy to use and it did a great job.

I have made dried fruits and veggies and beef jerky. The beef jerky was my own recipe and turned out great. I will be dehydrating a lot more.

My first dehydrator and i am very pleased. I bought to dehydrate leafy greens so i can crush to powder and add to my smoothies. The square design allows for 100% usage of space. My first try i packed the greens in and they dried perfectly. So easy to shift trays and clean trays.

This unit is very lightweight and easy to use. I dried lots of vegetables and spices last fall and then used them all winter. Works great and the produce and spices stayed fresh and flavorful.

I became interested in a dehydrator after purchasing a superfoods recipe book. I’ve used this model for nearly three months, and find it very useful, and a great jump into dehydrating for someone with no experience. I can see how, if i wanted to dehydrate soups and liquids, i would need an open-space dehydrator, but so far this is fine for my purposes. Because one dehydrates for hours, a timer is unnecessary imo. I have purchased two extra trays and four extra screens- one screen and four trays come with the fd-80p. The square shape affords a lot of space, though one thing i noticed is that the screen ribs become farther apart toward the perimeter and almonds, which sit nicely on the surface next to the center, fall through the tines of the plastic near the edge of the dehydrator. Seven different temperature settings between 95º and 160ºf make it easy to dry foods at specific temps, and the cooler/warmer temps are labeled with specific foods, i. , herbs and nuts are dried at cooler, slower temps; meats and vegetables at higher.

I thought it would be unwieldy but its not. Cleans easy and works very well. We have been making beef jerky for three weeks now, and it works fine.

It has a large drying area and the air/heat circulates evenly. It’s not as noisy as other brands i’ve tried.

Just what i wanted, works great.

The dehydrator arrived on time and works perfectly. I have tried several foods and they have dried well and in a short amount of time. I am most happy with this product and would recommend it and the seller as well.

My first dehydrator and i am not disappointed. It’s a pain to clean sometimes, but that’s par for the course when it comes to dried/baked on food. A timer would be nice, but that’s just one more thing that could break. My only real wish is some sort of retainer system to keep the trays together for transport and storage. As it is, they loosely stack.

My husband loves the apples and cinnamon.

Its easy to use and makes great beef jerky. I love jerky and this machine saves me so much money. I also use it to make chicken treats for my dog. I can’t believe i waited so long to buy a dehydrator. This machine is easy to clean and even easier to use. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

DELLA Commercial 1200W 10-Tray Food Dehydrator Nut Durable Fruit Sausage Jerky Dryer : Big but worth it.

My della is now over a year old and still going strong. I’ve done everything from drying fruits and vegetable to making jerkey.

I have used this for about a month and at first i loved it and it worked great , easy to clean , not to loud , looks like a commercial one. After a month the heating unit just stopped working after i had just cut up fruits and filled the trays and after 8 hours no change at all to the fruit. I went over and over the directions to make sure i was doing the right things and i was. I am so disappointed as i was looking forward to doing all the summer fruits and vegetables. I just sent a message in and hopefully they will help me out with this. I am very disappointed i have written to the seller of this and told them that i am having problems with this and they have not answered any of my emails don’t know what to do now. I really miss using this when it worked it was great and the problem seems to be with heating component. Thank you and if anyone knows of something i can do please let me know.

You can do so much at once with it. Timer works great and it is easy to start. Cleans well (racks are too big for my sing so i bought a plastic tub that i can use to wash them) no complaints.

I bought this for a new business venture. . Must say it is a good buy. Some people may have a little trouble assembling it. For the price it cant be beat.

Fun for the whole family from making trail mix to making pet treats. Easy to use and temperature control set your time and walk away. I still check on things throughout but very easy.

Della Commercial 1200W 10-Tray Food Dehydrator Nut Durable Fruit Sausage Jerky Dryer, Stainless Steel : This unit works good and i can’tell think of how it could be better except by adding expense by making it of unnecessarily more heavy duty parts. I expect it will work for us for many years.

I use this for drying cookies that are decorated with royal icing and it works beautifully. It’s perfect for setting small areas that might crater if drying at room temperature (eyes, small details, etc. I just put it on the lowest setting and leave it on for a while, while taking trays in/out to add the next layer of details. One tray sticks a little and is harder to remove, but that’s my only complaint.

My only complaint is that the drawers don’t seal like other dehydrators i’ve used in the past. Other than that, no problems or issues.

The only issue i see with it is the way the fan attaches to the unit. It is held on by little tabs which could bend easily. They need to fix that about it. I would buy another one and would recommend you try it out.

We advanced to this dehydrator from a small plastic one. The quality of this one is great. We can make lots of jerky at one time. Racks are a little hard to clean without a protective sheet. But just took a little elbow grease.

I know this is late in coming, however this l hope will be helpful. I am stilling using this at least 2 times a months.

It is great that the heater/van unit is separable, the shelves are sturdy and large. I like it more than the excalibur i used to have.

I was torn between buying this one or an excalibur. I used to own an excalibur and liked it. I would have bought another one but there has been a lot of bad reviews lately complaining of the malfunctioning fan and/or heating unit so i decided to go with this one. The price was a lot less in comparison and it even has a shut off timer. I’ve only used it once so far. I dehydrated two trays of cooked lentils using separately purchased teflon sheets. Half way through the drying process i noticed the lentils closer to the back of the dehydrator were dryer than the ones towards the front. Since one side of the trays actually make up the front wall of the unit there is no way to turn the entire tray around for even drying like in the excalibur. To remedy this i just turned the teflon sheets around to get them to dry evenly.

We have used several times and it works nicely. If using to dehydrate fruits, we would recommend a light coating of non-stick spray on the trays as we found that some of the fruits would stick. Cleans easily and works great.

Works awesome and so glad we purchased this item. We have used it to make our own veggie chips and our own beef jerky. If you are looking for a good dehydrator then this is a great choice you will not be disappointed.

The trays are fragile if you drop them on a hard floor. I shattered one dropping it accidentally about 3 feet onto a tile floor. Fortunately, there are 10 trays, so it didnt really hurt to lose one.

If i had known how much i was going to end up using it i would have opted to get the 10-tray model. I opted for the 6-tray fearing that the 10-tray would take up even more space. This is bulky, but that’s what you get with any and all dehydrators. I bought this dehydrator with the intention of making me own dehydrated meals for backpacking trips, instead of mres and mountain house meals which are filled with preservatives and i don’t think they taste very good. I usually feel like crap by the second day of eating them. They slide in and out without issue and they lock in place from a small groove in the back when they are fully inserted. The temperature setting is easy to adjust and the timer is as well. I use globalis- superior 9 pack super non-stick, dupont teflon re-usable food dehydrator sheets for excalibur 2500, 2900, 3500, 3900 or 3926t.

I love that it came with 10 racks (plastic). The size is perfect, the temp control works great, as does the power button. I really appreciate that the rack will come off the side easily and can be soaked, and washed. The more i use at once, the longer it takes to dehydrate, which is fine as i knew that would happen.

I bought this dehydrator because my smaller nesco died. For the price and functions of this model you can’t go wrong. You be disappointed if you choose this dehydrator.

Very nice high quality dehydrator. I looked at dehydrators for a long time and almost talked myself out of buying another reading all the reviews. I have went through so many of the round cheaper models making jerky i have lost track. The timer makes it very nice to dehydrate jerky overnight without worrying about it getting overdone. With the design of this model you are pushing warm air out of the back instead of up. It should last longer since there isnt anything dripping into the motor of fan. So far i have been very impressed and have made quite a bit of jerky with it. People tell me i should sell my jerky. It is much larger than the small round ones. For the price i paid i was impressed with quality of the machine.

I love the additional space the 10-tray model has. I can’t imagine what i’d have done it i would have actually gone with one of the round models you see in wally-world. My only complaint is that the trays dry a tad bit quicker towards the rear, which is to be expected since that’s where the heat source is. Overall, this thing is an awesome value. Basically a plastic excalibur.

I bought it so i could speed dry my royal icing cookies (which gives them a nice shine instead of a matt finish). The fact i could slide trays in and out without opening the door was the reason della was purchased. It even worked with some of the trays removed; i doubt one would want to do this if dehydrating fruits or meat, but for my needs it was perfect.

Duer International Food Dehydrator Hanging Food Pantrie Dehydration System Non Electric : Would not want to use this for sprouting

I hope i in no way require this dehydrator, but i’m confident content i do have it. I have an orchard and the strategy of losing contemporary peaches and plums is seriously unhappy. At the very least with this dehydrator, i have a opportunity to dry further fruit.

What was described about it slipping apart is real. It does–the best hooks slide out and it really is challenging to get back again collectively. But–the merchandise is exceptional and worked great for me when i reassembled it. It is very good for herbs and gentle issues but takes much too extensive for thicker things like tomatoes. I had mine each inside and out.

I was incredibly hopeful when i initial read about this concept of dehydrating food the ‘solar’ way. It is really a tad confusing when you read the directions even though as it tells you to not hold this in direct solar. This failed to do the job so perfectly for us when i experimented with to dry celery as we stay in a humid, island atmosphere. I am going to keep it while as i’m determined to see how it will function on clean herbs. Maybe h2o material has something to do with how properly this performs??. I’m not positive, but i do know that people today have performed photo voltaic drying for thousands of many years, so definitely i can discover the solution combination to make this get the job done for me, as well.

I been given this food dehydrator as a present, and was a small involved for the reason that i’d feel some assessments stating it was not uncomplicated to use. I found it really simple to use. So considerably i have dehydrated strawberries, grapes, and tomatoes, and all came out incredibly tasty. The trays clean very easily, and receiving them in and out of the dehydrator is quite very simple, as there are holders they connect to and slide on and off of. If i have any worry about the pantrie, it truly is that the zipper appears a small bit flimsy and i desire it was greater and more powerful. So significantly it is worked good, but simply because its slender and extremely adaptable i’m scared it may catch on to the mesh material and rip it or jam one particular working day. So you have to be watchful zipping and unzipping it. But i can not say that’s a difficulty, due to the fact it hasn’t took place but and may possibly not. But as significantly as the simplicity of using it, loading and unloading, as well as the high quality of food it generates, i have had no difficulties and would totally advocate it to any friends seeking to invest in 1.

Only trouble is i wish the top white lid arrived off when hanging. There are mess windows beneath it so i don’t recognize why it are not able to be removed?.

Food Dehydrator Hanging Food Pantrie Dehydration System Non Electric, Environmentally Friendly, Natural Way to Dry Foods. 5 tray Dehydrator : Love using next to my wood burning stove in the winter.

All round i appreciate the principle of outside dryers. I give this 1 a 5 for executing its occupation. It is pretty poorly developed as far as how the shelves are connected. There are funky fabric tabs that are complicated to open up, they fold about by themselves after you get one aspect in, the other side comes out, repeating by itself above and about once more. I finally resorted to protection pins until i can come across a take care of for following 12 months. I would not invest in this unique manufacturer of dryer yet again.

Preferred it so effectively i acquired another.

I purchased this food pantry soon after making contact with the organization to see if the past concern reviewers were going through was settled and i bought a rapid reply again that it was. I ordered this products and have now utilized it two times and i love it. I have an excalabur dehydrator but truly like this dehydrator greater as it is non-electric, lighter and will make no sound. The trays remain in their spot no problem, so the past issue was mounted. I utilized it to dry herbs which took two days and the pasta was all set overnight in my property. I am sure it depends on the humidity where you are living nevertheless. I have not experimented with it exterior as it has been windy the past couple of days, but am fired up to test that as well. I have uploaded solution pictures so you can see the dryer in motion. I would certainly propose this solution to a close friend and am sooo glad i obtained it, nicely well worth the money.

Superb product or service dries tomatoes in two days.

Can be a minor unwieldy to add and eliminate trays when they are comprehensive. Particularly valuable for drying fruit on very hot, dry summer times outside the house.

Excelent standard fruit dryer in its cost.

I’ve utilized it each and every day for the previous 7 days and no issues, and system to use it all summer season extended (if everything new will come up i prepare on modifying this overview). The only thing i have discovered is the zipper doesn’t totally near at the bottom and some bugs bought it there. I just tucked the minimal food pantrie tag in when i zipped it up and i have not experienced a issue with little flies getting in. I hung it in the shade so its out of direct sun. The food is drying really immediately in the desert air.

The item performs just like yet another device we borrowed from a good friend. This was the only non-driven dehydrator on the net, so this was a trial order. So much, it is just what we wanted. My spouse is happy and that’s superior ample for me.

Iniciar deshidratación natural.

I acquired this to use all through the wintertime months even though my wooden stove is delivering a dry warmth. When the warmth resource is considerably from cost-free, i am nevertheless making use of it and may as effectively get the additional advantage of dehydrating food specials in the course of the wintertime months. This is not to say that i will not be utilizing it in the course of the summer time months. The summers listed here are hot and dry and with the thoroughly enclosed netting it will hold pesky birds and bugs away. I appreciate the terrific development and the capacity to securely dehydrate food without having the use of electrical energy. I have strategies to purchase a second one in the near long term.

I have read all the critiques. For the people who wrote that this issue in no way fell aside. Shame on you for not talking the fact. The thought is good, but for the cost it must have been improved considered out for the tray attachment. Thank goodness for glue, as the designer suggested to use, as he was relatively offended that he was receiving terrible evaluations. For sixty bucks i felt that i shouldn’t have experienced to boost this solution to the extent it needed it. It fell aside just lifting or moving it’s site, forbid a wind catch it. I checked my glueing this early morning and i am a lot happier with the security. It will be easy to use for drying my herbs and lighter issues. I would buy one more one if they discounted the rate by about thirty %.

Very first, thank you to all individuals who reviewed this item that i would hardly ever seen nor applied, prior to. One particular worries that the producer could be submitting overly positive suggestions to lure suckers into paying for shoddy merchandise. Nonetheless, the beneficial testimonials on this merchandise are a hundred% correct. I am delighted with this non-electric dehydrator, specially immediately after utilizing my electric doubled my electricity monthly bill.I like kale chips but not if they value me an added $two hundred a thirty day period. The pantrie is moveable, gentle, with loads of perfectly sized trays to dry out lots of food. It is a arms down wonderful product at an fantastic price tag, you pay out when, not each and every thirty day period you get your electricity bill. Kale chips in this article i comeadding this paragraph a bit later on and i’ve verified my exhilaration in employing the dehydrator to terrific achievement. I used the pulp from juicing and lastly i never have to throw those people even now healthy scraps absent. They manufactured a delectable soup, i gotta insert.

Contrary to some of the opinions, it would seem extremely effectively created. We have employed it many instances and enjoy it. The detachable trays make it significantly less difficult to load and unload than other dryers. Our only issues is removing the dried food for the reason that it sticks to the trays. If the trays were addressed with something that would make them non-stick, it would be a comprehensive 5 stars.

This works terrific for drying meat.

I enjoy it have onions in it correct now. And its -two out facet ideal now, i would recommend this to all.

Nesco FD-80A – Great for making treats for my dogs

I was involved with how loosely all the trays and best and base of unit established collectively but there does not surface to be any air or warmth decline through operation. Rather quiet operation except you stay on your own in the region and even the crickets don’t chirp. I am 1 of people persons who will commit times studying a item in advance of buying so listed here is my acquiring. Except if you can afford to devote hundreds on a skilled unit this is by far the best for the price selection. Sq. design is wonderful, cooks evenly across the tray to all four corners. I don’t know about 4 trays but i built jerky with all 8 and did not rotate, the leading two layers (final kinds included, i stacked from base up) ended up garbage (very brittle) and bought a tiny better as you went down, next time i will rotate the trays each and every hour or so (i cooked about 8 lbs of jerky throughout eight trays for 12hrs, with rotation 9-10hrs possibly would have been fantastic).

I really like my sq. dehydrator. It has no poisonous plastic odor. It also arrives with a versatile good mat to capture the smaller sized items. I use mine to dry my sweet rice which i turn into korean rice wine. (makgeolli 막걸리) i put the mat at the incredibly bottom so what ever falls by means of the trays can be caught at the incredibly bottom. recommended this dehydrator for drying rice. I’ve used both the sweet rice and the regular short grain rice and have gotten perfect rice wine. I just plug it in to start and unplug to stop. ]

I have each a fd-eighty square dehydrator and an more mature fd-sixty one spherical dehrydrator nesco american harvest fd-sixty one snackmaster encore dehydrator and jerky maker. I have included a photo exhibiting the 2 facet-by-facet loaded with tomatoes. They are the two of very similar build excellent, i. My fd-61 is about 4 years aged now, and the plastic has become brittle and each the foundation and a couple of the drying trays have cracked and damaged. I acquired the fd-eighty in anticipation of the fd-61 heading kaput shortly, and also liking the reality that it had a lot more dehydrating house (40% a lot more advertised on the box). In real use, i obtain that a single fd-80 tray retains two. 75lbs of compact tomato quarters, although the fd-61 tray holds 2lbs of compact tomato wedges. So that does occur out to about 37. five% much more drying spot per tray. My main challenge with the fd-80 is that whilst it has this extra drying house, it isn’t going to have a big enough heater to dry foods at the exact amount as the fd-61. With the fd-sixty one, i can dry 4 trays (8lbs) of tomatoes wedges in 24 several hours. If i load the fd-80 with all four trays, that is 11lbs, and it takes 36 hrs or a lot more to dry them all, and the trays have to be rotated additional regularly. If i want to get a load carried out in 24 hours, then i can only use 3 trays (about eight.Here are the specifications for the Nesco FD-80A:

I bought this dehydrator recently, but considering that i dry nuts and herbs mainly, i wanted a lot more screens. For two screens, nesco costs 39. 99 right here at amazon and i cannot locate them anywhere else. This, my buddies, is price-gouging and it is unacceptable. I will not be shopping for from nesco all over again until they make their accessory price ranges a lot more reasonable. Other kitchen area websites were advertising them for $6 a pair furthermore shipping and dealing with till nesco resolved you could only obtain them in this article and for $39. ninety nine, more than 50 % the price of the product. Will not obtain this product or service until you want to guidance nesco cost-gouging, which other firms will almost certainly commence accomplishing, too, if we bow to it. Later addendum: i gave this 1 star at initial due to the fact the only put i appeared to be ready to get the screens is in this article for as well a great deal. I then went to the corporation web site and could not come across the screens, just the racks.

I have had the device for virtually a month now. So much i’ve dehydrated twenty pounds of ‘eye of round’ for jerky. The recipe i utilised is at recipezaar (won’t be able to article url), recipe range 161262 (modified a bit to suite my flavor, like i additional about 1 tsp of onion powder and slash the liquid smoke about 25%). In reality i just did ten of the twenty pounds yesterday. I have also dehydrated cantaloupe, kiwi slices, strawberries, grapes (arrive out as plump and juicy raisins), limes, oranges (those people were a lot more of an experiment), banana slices and watermelon (now that was interesting. Sweet as sweet), but back again to the assessment. I also received two sets of the insert-a-tray (two trays for each deal). It dries with all 8 trays just fantastic. I do rotate the trays about half way through, but i am not guaranteed i would truly have to.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A great dehydrator that does the job well.
  • Best quality dehydrator
  • Not sure if it was the fan or the heating element but pretty sure it’s not worth trying to get fixed

Procured in october of 2014 and in no way really used it for the 1st two yrs, but past 12 months started off to place it to use about the moment a week for nuts and crackers. Yesterday it stopped operating. Not certain if it was the fan or the heating element but quite absolutely sure it’s not worth trying to get preset. Time to update i guess because i located this to be alternatively cumbersome. Would considerably like to have trays that pull out so you have area in in between levels. I experimented with to use it to dehydrate portobello mushrooms and there was no way that was going to occur. All-in-all, i was unhappy that the matter burnt out with so minor use. It need to have lasted a large amount extended.

No complications listed here, just excellent dried fruits and veggies. We have employed this various instances with a modest timer to make a lot of dried veggies and fruit leather. Every product is a understanding experience for how long it will take to get it correct but that is to be anticipated. Has been uncomplicated to thoroughly clean and do the job with. Has a incredibly silent supporter that doesn’t bother us even when we are in the similar room with it. My only would like is that they produced the fruit roll up sheets in the sq. condition, they are only avialable in the round but operate effectively with this unit. Clean a screens also help alot with the sticky and smooth fruits.

Immediately after executing a great deal of investigation on the web, i had settled on the nesco dehydrator and a meat slicer. This has by now compensated for itself numerous instances in excess of. Clean up is straightforward, the juices drip into the main pan at the base, the enthusiast is on best. No need to stress about everything ever having into the fan/motor area. 🙂 i clean every thing with a little dish soap, and a scrubber. Then if you happen to be impatient, you can set the complete factor back up again outside the house, and turn it on. It’ll be dry in a couple minutes. Normal duck jerky treats at my community large box pet retailer is $20. I now acquire all sorts of distinct meats, freeze them, and slice them up.

The Metal Ware Corp. Nesco FD-61 Snackmaster Encore Four Tray Food Dehydrator, Fantastic dehydrator!

I purchased this dehydrator on a whim after my sister told me about her experiences with dehydrating fruits on a ‘small family basis’. As of this writing i have owned my dehydrator approximately 5 weeks. I have dehydrated apples, roma-tyle tomatoes and onions. The nesco is easy to use and comes with a reasonably complete instruction manual giving the methods and times for various fruits and vegetables. All of my produce has been hand-cut so i am unable to make my slices/cuts as uniform as the book states. . So the drying time is frequently a little longer than the book would suggest. However, the book also gives instructions on how to recognize whether a product is properly dried. My apples have been a great hit with my husband and with my mother-in-law. I think this dehydrator would be great for anyone wanting to do small batches or as a first dehydrator. I did do some research prior to buying this particular model and this model had extremely good reviews from other amazon buyers, especially that this model has a 500 watt power source.

I have only just been given this (immediately, as well), but remember to be informed that the product does not come with spice packs as one particular of the photos shows. It comes with the instruction/recipe reserve, just one fruit leather-based tray, and the dehydrator. I will evaluate how superior the item will work as shortly as i go out and acquire some apples. I’m excitedupdate: it does what it really is intended to do.I small-diced about 9 peeled apples, and ended up with a few quart ziplocs well worth of dried apples. It appears to be to get the job done greatest if you give it a several hours, then stir just about every tray and wait a couple of a lot more several hours, then repeat until eventually the merchandise is dried. The cookbook states that the things dry in an astonishingly-small period of time, which i do not come across to be genuine. I have checked my clocks, and they seem to operate at the typical pace, and according to my pals i am situated outdoors of any type of time warp, but my items however tend to dry at about 1. 5 periods the estimations in the book. Please consider that into thought.

So much so great with this merchandise, would have given it a 5 star if the instruction guide experienced of been with it and the mess trays. More than all i am joyful with the issue and delivery was on point.

Comments from buyers

“EXCELLENT PRODUCT, What you see is not what you get regarding the trays., Quality product. Definitely Recommend to Others.”

This is my 2nd and ideal dehydrator i have experienced. The other a single had a heating coil on the bottom and took way also long to dehydrate nearly anything. You can make do-it-yourself fruit roll-ups with this and it tastes wonderful. The a single with the coil on the bottom is challenging to clean up this 1 is way less difficult. I have experienced this for about 5 yrs now and even now love it.

This dehydrator is best notch for the income. I go through the critiques, producing be aware of people wanting timers, time tables in the instruction manual staying incorrect and one particular that states they didn’t like the gap in the center, huh?. That’s where by the lover blows incredibly hot air downward. As far as a timer and the guide becoming off on time tables, allow me level out you you should not need a timer and you do not want to depend on a person. This dehydrator would not get days to complete, so if you have to leave the dwelling or go to bed. Use it when you can check on the development. As far as the time tables remaining off, acquire into thought that men and women lower their food items into various thickness and a quarter inch differs from eye to eye. Humidity amounts are distinct spot to position and so many different variables are in engage in.

We’ve owned this unit for about a year and my wife and i both agree that our decision to buy it was a good one despite our limited kitchen storage space. We have a large container garden and use this product weekly through the summer months to dehydrate peppers, tomatoes, herbs, and whatever fruit we’re in the mood for. We appreciate it’s simplicity and in our opinion the added bells and whistles that some reviewers miss would just detract (and probably add cost) to a product we’re very happy with as is. This growing season we purchased a fruit roll sheet and our neighbor’s kids loved our raspberry and strawberry rollups despite the fact that we left in most of the seeds in the mix.

I did a whole lot of analysis ahead of getting a dehydrator and i’m incredibly happy with this one particular. I like that it has the gap in the middle due to the fact it aids the air flow into, but for producing some points (i. Fruit leather-based), owning that condition to do the job all-around is a very little inconvenient. It dehydrates incredibly timely and things closer to the center dry a lot quicker, but if you do a minimal rearranging midway by means of, it works just fantastic.

The dehydrator is minimal but a single receives what one particular pays for. We delight in employing it – it is straightforward to clear and is small more than enough that it shops very easily. Have not attempted it for generating jerky nevertheless, but searching forward to that. So far we have experienced superior ordeals generating crackers from raw seeds and spicing them up to taste. Very good unit for the everyday person – would have to up grade to a more substantial unit to turn out bigger portions in a one time as opposed to repeating the process. Total we are glad at the minute.

I purchased my nesco american harvest food dehydrator about a month ago and i really like it. I can slash up bananas and apples in the early morning, it makes my household odor excellent all day lengthy, and by the time my children are residence from college they have apple and banana chips to snack oni’ve also dehydrated mushrooms and a bell pepper that needing utilizing up, both of those turned out wonderfully, also a coconut which we just ate the dehydrated parts as snacks. I acquired the dehydrator to cut down the waste of fresh foods in the residence and it has absolutely more than paid out itself off alreadyi was involved about the plastic used in the dehydrator due to the fact there is no advertisement stating it is bpa no cost, i called the client services variety on my pamphlet and instantly was talking to a helpful shopper provider agent who understood what she was talking about & the plastic is bpa totally free, if anyone else is curiousgreat device, i would recommend it to any one who is just starting off out dehydrating, or someone who has been doing it for years and just on the lookout for a new dehydrator.

This functions exceptionally well, is silent to use, and very flexible. Having various levels that can be stacked with just one to all the trays is incredibly helpful. I can just set it up and go away it to do its position. When i appear back, i have crisp dried foodstuff to use or snack on. I have dried fruits, vegetables (which include potatoes), and even kale. And thoroughly clean up is astonishingly simple. Would suggest this to any individual wanting healthier foodstuff.

I have nothing to compare this machine to so my review is a bit biased but i just got it this friday and i immediately opened the box then washed everything down and put it together. I bought this machine to dry my hot peppers because they don’t keep long after harvesting. Anyway, i washed my peppers then put them on the trays. The thing runs really quiet and has a soothing purr to it. I’ve had it running all weekend but shut it down at bedtime. I have absolutely no complaints about its performance however, finding something large enough to wash the trays in is a task because they’re too large to fit in my dishpan but they will fit in my sink when it’s not filled with dirty dishes. I wonder why they didn’t include an on/off switch???. Not a big deal but was kinda wondering.

I obtained this in 2009 (producing assessment in 2016) and have by no means experienced any problems. Have utilized it for generating numerous batches of jerky each and every calendar year, as nicely as for drying fruits and veggies in the summer. However operates beautifully just after 7 a long time.

A single of the critiques regarding this product said it was peaceful and did a superior job of dehydrating a massive assortment of food items. Though this is my very first dehydrator, it does make what i think about a nominal amount of sound for the duration of procedure. To date, i have dried a number of kinds of herbs, watermelon, cantelope, peaches, and pineapple. The recipe booklet explained dried cantelope and watermelon as comparable to ‘candy. ‘ the watermelon was not lousy but i in all probability would not do the cantelope once again. Every little thing else was pretty tasty. The equipment is quite effortless to use and the adjustable temperature management gives you a ton of overall flexibility for drying food with varying levels of dampness. Perhaps i missed the list of factors for this item when unpacking but i was unsure what the white plastic tray was for it wasn’t till much later that i understood this is the clean-a-display accessory outlined in the instruction booklet. I did have some complications with the plastic trays warping a bit and at minimum a person tray became completely stained from the peaches i dehydrated but none of that interferes with the features of this gadget. Overall, i am quite happy with this obtain and prepare to experiment with other foods and see what operates very best for me.

What you see is not what you get. For years i manufactured jerky with a nesco dehydrator similar to the fd37a. My only grievance for that device was the flimsy, crystal clear dehydrator trays. The dried beef often stuck to them and you couldn’t thoroughly clean the trays without having breaking the smaller plastic grills. I ordered this upgraded unit due to the fact the trays in the picture looked like the trays my husband acquired at walmart (related to the nesco tr-2 trays) to boost the selection of trays i could use. What i got was a grey model of what i experienced with my previous dehydrator. The kinds in the picture and also in the guide that accompanied this new nesco dehydrator demonstrate a tray with a bolstered heart so i assumed it would be the much better trays – they are not. I haven’t applied the dehydrator still, but i desired some others to know that the trays pictured are not what you get with this device.

I by no means owned a dehydrator prior to and i picked this one particular due to the fact of the price tag & testimonials. I’m marinating my jerky meat about night but i am doing a batch of fruit at present. So considerably this minor device is kicking some really serious butt and acquiring the position accomplished fast. Anything is hunting fantastic, despite the fact that i believe i sliced my strawberries too thin. I am also enthusiastic to try generating fruit leathers someday shortly. But i are unable to wait to start my jerky tomorrow immediately after perform. =dalso, for all of you complaining about it not possessing a timer. Dwelling depot sells 24 hr wall timers for $four. Challenge solved and no one particular acquired damage.

Quite small footprint for this form of appliance, and additional rings can be additional to the stack for additional place. I use this for herbs at the conclude of the year to stay clear of waste. 24 hrs is ample time to dehydrate just about something. Motor is quiet when operating as very well.

I use this for generating chicken jerky take care of for my canine and i use it once a week. With the jerky treats remaining designed in china and so many dogs having sick and dying from having them and the fda even now won’t be able to find a explanation for why the products is harming pet dogs. I have decided to give my canine a treat that i designed and i know would not damage them. . They really like them and they are easy to make.I buy the frozen boneless skinless hen breasts from walmart their brand name since they are the lowest priced and then i slash them when they have thawed a bit.

First, the solution alone is nice. I am 4 hrs into 2trays of apples, a tray of bananas and a fruit roll up. It can be progressing properly and i’m assured they will transform out. Second, in the product or service description, it state’s two conflicting offers. One particular suggests 2 fruit roll up trays and 2 spice packs. The other individuals claims one fruit tray and 4 spice packs and is pictured as such. I acquired 1 fruit tray and very little else. It’s not the conclusion of the planet, but the products description really should be altered to correctly mirror the contents.

I utilized this dehydrator for herbs developed in my backyard. The initially time i made use of it, i did not place ample herbs in there. Went back and of system the layers had been not whole simply because of the dehydration. Up coming time, i did do some over lapping, just took a very little longer for them all to dry out but i felt superior mainly because i just had lots to dry.

I have had a couple dehydrators above the years but the greatest difficulty i had was the time it took to make jerky. This was the primary rationale i held off on purchasing 1 for the past couple years. The nesco fd-61 manufactured this challenge a moot point. I have manufactured five batches so considerably and the average time is four several hours. The unfavorable evaluations feel to be about the reality the item would not have an on/off change and there is no timer. I choose it won’t have an on/off swap so i you should not overlook to unplug it. As significantly as a timer, this works so rapidly, you’ll want to retain an eye on your food and not rely on a timer. The only problem i had (at 1st) was it only will come with 4 trays. I was likely to purchase four additional but just after knowing how quickly this dehydrator will work, i only orders 2 much more. Yes possessing 8 trays would be awesome, but i was worried about the entire point finding knocked over by slip-up.

I just gained mine today and created my 1st batch of beef jerky. It arrived out incredibly and took about 4 hrs. The supporter on the dehydrator runs extremely quietly, i would have to say about equal to the noise of a property floor admirer on the least expensive placing. The dehydrator came with some jerky spices, curing agent, a tray to make fruit roll ups in and a booklet with recipes and time tables, temp. Configurations for a large amount of products that you can dehydrate. Total i am pretty pleased with the develop of this product. You just stack the trays on prime of each other and then place the heating unit on on prime of all the trays. As for persons definitely seeking a timer, the most straightforward resolution for that would just be to pick up any wall timer from a household depot and plug the dehydrator into that.

It drys more quickly than it claimed it would. Subsequent time i will watch it in the course of the working day and not dry overnight. The fruit was a very little more than dry but it arrived off the tray easily and it even now tasted wonderful.

Com/gp/product/b000cem3wm/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_title and so much so very good. I use a timer to dehydrate natural hen strips for my puppy. The only draw back on this solution is the deficiency of on/off or timer switch. Around-all, this serves its purpose. It offers me peace of thoughts knowing that i only give what is actually greatest for my dog and very little else. Long gone are the times the place i acquire chicken treats from pet merchants. I know that you can find no other poor stuff on these rooster treats i made at house due to the fact i manufactured it myself. There’s mainly almost nothing in there other than for a complete great deal of labor of adore.

My chihuahua loves rooster jerky, but following all the food and drug administration complains about chinese hen jerky and the significant, higher expense of us created jerky i made a decision to make my have.

This model also makes beef jerky, so when i get close to to doing that, i will update this evaluate. Very seriously while, nesco is a definitely well-acknowledged firm and they make several various types of dehydrators.

Mine has been in almost continual use since i obtained it a few weeks ago. Major improve from the cheapo convection only device i picked up at a garage sale. Only a few of minimal cons: no change (not a large deal but would be extra effortless than unplugging. Would be an straightforward diy mod while). Deal with for best is not connected at stability stage so prime tilts marginally when lifting. Yet again, no major deal, but would be simpler to get on/off with 1 hand if balanced. Dries quite evenly with out rotating trays. I’ve figured out that a several primary kitchen area resources can make prepping matters to dry a lot easier and quicker. For example: a mandolin & a pineapple corer/slicer.

I started out dehydrating final summertime correct right before the price ranges began heading up on food. This unit has been put to the exam and it is superb.

  • Nesco FD-75PR Snackmaster Pro Food Dehydrator

A mandolin helps make factors significantly simpler and will help keep fruits and veggies the exact same dimensions for equal drying. I made use of it to make dehydrated fruits, veggies, my very own spices, powders, fruit leathers, flowers and jerky all through hunting season. It generally labored like a allure and i acquired how to do a whole lot as a result of seeing youtube clips. A few yrs into it i had it on overnight with celery and in the early morning it was not operating. I considered it was perhaps the plug in and tried out a unique home. So i do what i often do when anything will not get the job done. Generally i noticed a clip on a dehydrator that needed a new thermal fuse.

I purchased this merchandise as a christmas existing for my partner. Seemed in several shops and at lots of many quite a few below on amazon. He mainly needed it for jerky and i figured it would use it for some fruit. I did my research on other people viewpoints and with that and my spending plan, this was my choice. I was picturing it needing to go to the laundry room, not at all. My fridge is louder that it and it only usually takes a few of minutes to tune it out. It has a temp manual on it, awesomethe fan is on best, blowing down, not on bottom. We ended up equipped to do both meat and fruit. Even while they equally demand unique temps, we followed for apples then turned it up for the meat and minimize a minor bit of essential time out. Turned out fantastic and the fruit failed to flavor something like spicey meat even nevertheless which is all you could odor in the dwelling. It says it is dishwasher secure, but on some plastic i hardly ever have been a truster of the dishwasher, so i just washed it by hand.

I have dehydrated every thing from herbs to vegetables to refried beans to pasta to sauces to beef jerky to hen and this unit performs flawlessly. I use it so significantly i had to buy extra trays, mesh screens, and fruit roll-up sheets (i now have eleven trays, and 6 each individual of the mesh screens and roll-up sheets). I’ve even discovered to dehydrate geared up hamburger helper (finish with meat, sauce, and pasta) so i can rehydrate it ideal in the bag though tenting or hiking without having any cooking or cleanup. If you are into extensive-time period food storage, prepping, camping/backpacking, or are just drained of paying by way of the nose for jerky, this is the device for you.

I seriously like this dehydrator. Soon after combing by all kinds of critiques of this and other dehydrators i settled on this model and now that i am on my third batch of dried fruit (i’ve done apple, grapes, cherries, pineapple, blackberries and strawberries) i am glad i acquired this. It really is a good way to help you save fruit for later on or for snacking. I adore dried fruit and often sort of cringed at the value, now i can obtain it when it’s low cost and in-season and have it a large amount much less expensive. Yet another thing i hadn’t viewed as when obtaining was that you can dry fruits/ veg to different ranges. Like if you want a little far more of a ‘spongy’ texture to the apple slices then you should not depart them in as long*. Conversely you can leave them in until they pretty much flip to dust if you like. *the much more dried they are the lengthier they will previous. If you like dried fruit this is a fantastic expenditure. We bought vacuum sealer at the exact same time and have been putting absent a significant portion of the fruits as we make them as very well.

Works wonderful, will make astounding dried cherries and other fruit. My only difficulty with it is that it is quite large and it’s challenging to come across a spot for it in my kitchen area. This is not the product’s fault, just a little something to keep in mind when determining no matter whether to invest in. It is quite uncomplicated to use and the recommendations are excellent. It truly is also quick to cleanse, which is a in addition.

I couldn’t be more contented with this merchandise. It is quite perfectly manufactured, and the dehydrator trays [it is sent with 5, but additional can be added are very easy to clean up. It is very quiet and produces outstanding beef jerky. Thus far i have used primarily london broil with two approaches to preparation. I have a freezer and normally stock up on london broil when it is on sale. My first attempt was to cut beef slices as thin as possible [1/8″], marinate for 24 hours, spreading beef cuts on a paper towel bottom and top to remove some of the moisture, and dehydrating at 160 degrees for roughly 2-1/2 hours. The jerky was good, but a little on the dry side. Very little residue was left on the dehydrator trays which made clean up a snap. On my second attempt i cut the beef slices thicker [1/4″] and eliminated use of paper towels prior to dehydration. Marinated the beef for 24 hours, as before, but extended the dehydration time to 4-1/2 hours. ]

Properly, i am just into it for 1 working day. I have had little desk supporters that are louder than this. I do not know still if it will raise the drying time still. Drawbacks: no on-off swap no timer. I place an appliance timer (brinks-1250w) that i use for place lights when i am out of town. Ought to include things like much more screens for the trays ought to consist of more (at least two) roll-up trayswhen i purchased this i also ordered two supplemental trays. I must have acquired more screens at the identical time. Don’t imagine the thought that food items never have an affect on each other. It is, i am obtaining out, basically not correct. I applied three of the five trays. From the base up they ended up: empty, serrano peppers, habanero peppers, inexperienced peppers (sliced and diced), empty. The diced environmentally friendly peppers dried in aout four hrs at a hundred thirty-deg. They were hotthe thermostat is pretty exact, within just 5-deg f. I discovered you can area just one of the small digital thermometers (with the one particular flat facet) on the desk with the probe in the base air outlet. With the output temp in just motive as to the thermostat location, i have no grievances.

A lot of investigate went into my conclusion to invest in this dehydrator the assessments and cost have been the identifying components. I have not utilised any of the 3 packets of jerky seasoning which arrived with this device due to the fact l was making use of my have recipe for beef teriyaki. I sliced my partially frozen london broil(beef rump is also superior) into unique thicknesses in order to decide drying time , which l felt would have an impact on tenderness (from one/4 to one/two inch) working with only the first two racks about 1 pound of meat. I did this on my working day off so it could be monitored regularly, properly the recommendations say to established temp at 160 degrees which l did but l was referred to as absent in an emergency, upon my return l examined the meat and the one/4′ parts were too dry nearly crispy the one/2′ pieces had been some what moist all of this in only 5 one/2hrs so please do not walk away the first time you use the dehydrator. The e book mentioned eight-twelve hrs for jerky l consider four hrs was all l necessary because l was only making use of two racks, and in the future anything at all l dehydrate for initial time will be intently monitored. Of coarse l understood that there is no electricity change or timer but l will remedy this by getting a large responsibility plug in timer at a community hardware store. , in summary l am joyful with my invest in hardly know its on(very) and settle for that there is a studying curve involved dependent on what your dehydrating and how a great deal. Will post in the upcoming as l learn dehydrator.

Considering the fact that acquiring this, i’ve dried several objects – pears, plums, bananas, tomatoes, thyme, oregano and cranberries. As other testimonials outlined, items took lengthier than the instruction book mentioned. I consider there is just a demo and mistake issue concerned in drying. Am acquiring the ‘dehydrator bible’ reserve, and hopefully will get some suggestions. For example, the bananas i dried turned out leathery – not crunchy like the banana chips i obtain at my co-op. Following undertaking some investigate, turns out most banana chips you acquire are fried. Also, my cranberries ended up crunchy, not to mention extremely tart, pretty contrary to the leathery like the ones i purchase. Turns out, a light-weight coating of vegetable oil and some sugar or corn syrup will make greater dried cranberries. All part of the understanding procedure, and nothing’s been entirely inedible.

I researched dehydrators right after becoming weary of paying out substantial sums of cash on jerky. A small five after luggage averages about $7. Not to mention the significant sodium contents and lots of use monosodium glutamate (msg).I discovered this one to be a fantastic mid-priced dehydrator – it would enable us to make meat jerky, dehydrate fruits and veggies, as properly as make our personal fruit roll ups. The dial makes it possible for you to simply select the sort of food you want to dehydrate. Thus you simply plug in the dehydrator and pick the food. It will come with five trays, as properly as further inserts for creating fruit roll ups and mesh screens so that objects dont drop via the trays. You can add up to 5 more trays. Even if you are only applying two trays, it is instructed that you keep all five in the device for efficiency and more quickly dehydration.

I am a to start with-time dehydrator user. Dwelling in hawaii, we are employed to partially-dried fish and meats as beer appetizers, and this performs really nicely for making just that. Dried fish, as perfectly as partly dried marinated beef (acknowledged as pipi kaula, pronounced pee-pee cow-lah) can be set up at lunchtime, and be ready to take in a number of hours later on, soon after worki just line the meats in the trays and stack them up with the dehydrator on the top rated, established the dial to its greatest environment, plug in and all over 3 hours later on, it really is all completed. Break out the drinks and it is really bash time. I really don’t use the machine to thoroughly dry anything for extended storage, and i you should not have any working experience with other devices, so i can not critique this other than that it will work best for the way i use it. I plug my kitchen sink, fill with heat soapy water and soak the trays right away. Light scrub and rinse cleanse, and dry. I hold the authentic box, and just set the dehydrator inside alongside with the instruction manual, and set it in the corner. Really like the dehydrator, use it after or 2 times a week.

I acquired this for a single purpose only. So considerably i have no issues with its structure or any other operation. Other reviewers have famous that it really is lacking a timer and an on/off change which is legitimate but to me it signifies that there’s just significantly less that could go improper with it, and who does not have a timer on their microwave, oven or watch?i have the more substantial measurement jerky gun that nicely holds a pound of lean floor beef or turkey. It only requires 2 or 3 trays to keep one lb of jerky employing my gun. For relieve of use in squeezing out the meat, i use the huge suggestion on the jerky gun and organize it in a spiral on the tray. There is less troubles with frequently possessing to pinch of the finishes and also with this approach i only need two trays and when it is done, i just minimize the extended strip of jerky into squares. With the spices/get rid of presently prepackage for sale in this article or at my area wm, the simplicity of the jerky gun and the brief drying with this unit, all my pals, family members and coworkers will be finding selfmade beef and turkey jerky for xmas. It will conserve me money, the jerky is superb and for the folks that do not know i have a person of these, they will imagine i went by means of a large amount of problems to make them home made jerky. I have not attempted to dehydrate everything else and truly really don’t intend to. I purchased this only for jerky and for that it does an excellent position. It can be quick, it really is dries constantly, not messy at all, and i can make more than three lbs of jerky in a make a difference of several hours.

Been applying this for at the very least three-4 decades and it nonetheless performs great. I’ve bought it operating all over the clock when my figs are in time. I do locate i have to rotate the trays immediately after eight several hours (if it really is some thing that needs to be dried for a good deal lengthier) if i am making use of all the trays. The trays thoroughly clean quite nicely, also, though at times regardless of what you are generating will get very trapped on it. I’m not a major admirer of the fruit trays (to make roll-ups). I have tried using them a few times and all the things i make finishes up having a bit of a plastic flavor.

I diligently browse reviews just before i settled on paying for this dehydrator. I bought it in august of 2010 and put in about $forty five. Believe in me, if i devote that a lot funds, it greater be a superior deal, and this dehydrator certainly is truly worth it. I have produced so several treats, conserving at least as a great deal as i spent on it, if not far more, for the reason that i am not paying out for costly shop bought jerky or dried fruit. I am an amateur in the kitchen area, and i will not try to eat meat. But my boyfriend’s favored factor in the entire world is handmade beef jerky and i preferred to make him some for his birthday. Maybe he was just currently being wonderful, but he reported it was the ideal beef jerky he experienced ever tried. On my second batch i even tried out a bite, but. I could not get earlier the chewing part. In any case, the complete level is that it is actually uncomplicated to use, even if you assume you don’t have a cluei can, even so, remark on my dried fruits. So substantially extra taste than the retailer-acquired type.

I have never dried fruits ahead of so i experienced no plan which dehydrator to purchase. There are so numerous on the industry and all declare to be the ideal. So i purchased this one and i have to say it was a excellent preference. The device will come with 5 trays, 2 clean up-a-sheets and two fruit-roll trays. This is much more than more than enough to get began. (make certain to get the further thoroughly clean-a-sheets as they are very handy). The device is quite quick to use, no explanation essential. The trays are durable and tough. The lover is extremely quiet but nonetheless strong enough to dry the meals in a affordable time. The documentation is fundamental but fantastic plenty of.

Totally enjoy the food that we have designed in this point. Espically the apples my spouse would make that she soaks in a lemon honey answer prior to dehydrating them. Lemon to preserve from browning, honey to increase a minor sweetness. They occur out pleasant and crispy or can just take them out a small early for a more chewy feel. I was also a fan of kiwi minimize up and put in there. There are quite a few other points we have performed, like jerky and every little thing looks to arrive out properly dehydrated. The only criticism about the products is the sound. It really is not loud, it is really just that regular buzzing in the background when you are tryong to look at television or do no matter what else you need to do. And it goes on and on for hrs. Like a dishwasher jogging almost.

I started out with just 1 smallish dehydrator. It would have price tag additional to return the trays than i would actually paid for them. Acquire a further dehydrator to match the added trays. Win-get :dthen i resolved i needed an additional to grow the quantity i could dehydrate at at the time. So, this invest in, moreover the more trays yet again, will broaden once again the amount that i can dehydrate.

Terrific merchandise love my dried fruit.

I bought this to change my unique american harvest fd-1000. It lasted fifteen years and dried at least 2 tons of fruits and vegetables. This more recent design fd-1010 has a a lot more potent lover and dries speedier than the first. The evaluate that complains about dripping into the base is not using the dehydrator adequately. This unit comes with a stable fruit roll sheet. Set it on an vacant tray in the bottom of the stack and it will catch the drips. Also the clean a screens are crucial for sticky stuff like tomatoes and grapes. You carry the display from the tray, give it a twist and the fruit arrives off simply. I have the trays and further screens from the old unit so i can stack them 15 large. Not confident about statements with 30 trays as that appears to be rather unwieldy.Here are the specifications for the Nesco American Harvest FD-1010 1000 Watt Gardenmaster Dehydrator:

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great Dehydrator!
  • is it okay to buy a 4th? nah, don’t have that much counter space 😀
  • 15 years and two tons later

My last 1 was 25 yrs outdated and nonetheless heading potent, so i gave it to my daughter.

Products is pretty satisfactory and is a fantastic start for expanding my idea for starting up a farmers current market business to provide dehydrated foodstuff and ideally seek the services of some fellow military veterans who want a job and have even worse disabilities than i have and are a lot more youthful than i am.

Experienced another that lasted for two yrs ahead of burning out.

The device operates easily and dries supplies fairly effectively. I have not made use of it fully total yet (only 6 trays so far). Heavier than i assumed it would be, but which is not a adverse. The steel base containing the heating ingredient and enthusiast has an on/off swap that lights up pink when on, and a dial for temperature placing. Also, there are indentations for selecting up the device – awesome aspect. Downsides: (1) the energy twine is only 39 inches lengthy. If it ended up 2x extended, placement selections would be better. (2) the trays are only 1 inch deep with the actual display/lattice located in the middle of the rim permitting one inch of thickness for whatever is staying dried. 2x deeper would be an gain for drying mushrooms. (3) a enterprise agent explained to me that no spacer trays (with out display/lattice) are obtainable for this model they are an alternative for other designs.

I acquired this as a second and can’t praise it can be functionality sufficient. I experienced viewed as finding a a lot more high-priced product, having said that it is restricted in the number of trays that are usable. This a person can stack 20 significant and the motor is in just the proper put, on the base so the warmth from the fan rises up quickly. I’ve been dehydrating with the gardenmaster for above a year now and can’t be far more pleased with the final results. You will not be disappointed with the gardenmaster.

Amazing lights, appears fantastic and had been 1/two the value of neighborhood retailer.

My previous was the same as this but i burned out the motor, my fault. Yea, i left the top rated deal with directly on the motor and the timer kicked it back again on and it above heated. I have 14 trays i use and it dries apples in the very same amount of money of time as my old device in which i utilized only 8 trays.

Significantly enhanced about the older model of the american harvest dehydrator, which i experienced been utilizing for twenty decades. Made beef jerky in 50 percent the time.

I really don’t know why i waited so prolonged to get a person of these things. This is a fantastic addition or our kitchen area. I received an additional two drying trays and screens and happy i did. My very first try was a single large zucchini for chips and a medium box of tomatoes and that by yourself made use of all six trays. Both equally turned out fantastically so considerably greater than the oven. It has a nice hummmm when working, which reminds me to retain an eye on it when it really is near to ‘checke time’. It was proposed to me, and i very propose it to anyone else thinking of hoping some really serious drying, leathering or jerkying.

This dehydrator is examine, with a good deal of area for dehydrating. I would propose this device for any type of foodstuff dehydrating.

Extremely delighted with this modern-day and clean dehydrator. Been producing dried fruits and veggies for a couple of months now and i just established the temp. 5 or six several hours afterwards i’ve obtained dried chips and all. The down side – it truly is a tiny louder than i would have predicted.

It malfunctioned and self destructed on the second use, but worked perfectly on the initial use. I was able to return it for a refund, but i’d instead have exchanged it for a new a person. This is the just one i want and i assume this was just a fluke.

Initial i turned the rest of past years’ venison into some of the greatest jerky ever. I then dried fruits and vegetables from my yard. It operates quicker than the accompanying literature implies and runs quietly.

So much i have dehydrated ham and apples. They have been completed superbly, and it is so a great deal pleasurable.

I wore out the past a person with decades of challenging don.

Superior substitution for my harvest maid, which was 30 yrs.
