Nesco RG-1400 Reversible Grill/Griddle – Same old problem

I love my grill and griddle. It works great and it is a quick and easy way to cook and cleaning it is easy too.

I tried other (only one sided grill) for the same price. One side is for grilling meat and the other side for things like pancakes, eggs,bacon e. I always use a brush and coat the grill with oil. The grill heats up evenly and you can put a lot of meat on it. Never put the grill part in the dishwasher. Wash it by hand which is easy to do. I love this grill and hope i get many years out of it.

Does the job i purchased it for. Here are the specifications for the Nesco RG-1400 Reversible Grill/Griddle:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Reversible non-stick grill/griddle
  • Embedded heating element
  • Stay-cool handles
  • Power indicator
  • Heavy duty base/drip tray

It is good product, everything is good but it doesn’t have cover.

This reversible grill/griddle is cute and useful, but has its drawbacks. First of all, the surface area is pretty limited. We are a couple, so we’re not usually cooking all that much at once, but if you want to use this for anything more than a couple of people you’re going to be hard pressed to do so with this one. I also wish the controls were more precise. Those aren’t exactly terms that give me much information. Is ‘high’ too high for cooking a chicken breast?. Will ‘low’ enough to keep things warm at a dinner party?the smaller size does mean it takes up a bit less counter space and stores more easily, though. And the built-in drip pan removes excess fat and keeps things from steaming in released juices rather than browning or sauteeing. Just make sure that it looks like it will do what you’re asking it to do when you order it.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • My second Nesco product – totally satisfied.
  • It is so easy to clean
  • Five Stars

Holds heat fairly well, reheating somewhat quickly when food item put on either side. Non-stick coating worked fine for me. Cleans up easily in hot soapy water. Grease catcher has as much surface area as grill/griddle and is pretty deep. I didn’t have a problem with overflow.

Gift for my son who loves to cook.

It meet all expictaiins, i even forgot i have a stove. And great service from the buyer.

I use this griddle everyday to cook breakfast. If it were to wear out i would buy a new one as soon as possible. It is so easy to clean, doesn’t stick, and just the right size for two people. The grease catcher is big and easy to clean, no little pans that run over when cooking bacon.

The nesco rg-1400 reversible grill/griddle has three pieces – a plastic cradle that also doubles as a rather huge drip pan, the grill/griddle itself and the power cord. I’ve been cooking with it for a couple of weeks now. First, the grill is on the small side. It will hold 6 strips of bacon or 4 pancakes 4-5 inches in diameter, great for a couple but not so much if you’re feeding children. The heating control is on the power cord, as is usual with electric grills/griddles. Unlike most, this one does not give actual temperatures but only a range – warm, low, medium and high. I don’t know, but i had to cook bacon on it. (on other grills i cook bacon on about 300f.

The heating control is not always easy to control. Heat goes up and down to much.

Received this yesterday (22aug13). Used it last night for steaks. 1 big, thick usda prime ribeye (from costco) for me, and a much thinner one for my wife. First toasted the bread for garlic toast to put under the steaks. Ran the temp up to max, and the bread toasted perfectly. The heat is great (much better than my old grill) and the steak cooked fast on the outside and stayed raw in the center as i like it. About 4min, flip then 4min, flip then 4min, rotate then 4min. Added my wife’s for the last 4min, but it took a bit longer than i anticipated. Even though it was much thinner, the heat is enough to cook the outside and leave the inside alone.

Once again, another ‘healthy’ cooking alternative. On the plus side, a pretty good size cooking area, and nice to be able to flip over from smooth to grill. The unit heats up pretty quickly but do not rely on the accuracy of the thermostat temperature wheel, it goes from really hot to almost off when food is getting too hot and you turn it down. Also, despite what you read, you will need a pam spray or something, to use the smooth side especially. Now my favorite moan:-from the manual: – ‘wash with warm soapy water’you can’t submerge this thing ever, so good luck getting all those steak juice stains off, it also won’t go in the dishwasher. I had a nice unit over 5 years ago with removable and fully washable plates on a foreman style grill, and this is progress?more of a toy i suspect than getting used daily. Not very expensive, and easy to see why. Probably do well in a college dorm – 3 stars is generous.

Best decision and works good. Very happy with the grill/ griddle.

I read a lot of the marginal reviews before buying and was a little skeptical but jumped in anyway. I now use this almost exclusively when cooking. I haven’t my pots and pans for some time. In fact, it is parked on top of my glass top stove. I would say that it is probably ideal for a couple and not designed to be an indoor replacement grill to cook up a feast for a party. I have cooked ahead 6 large burgers with veggies all around the sides to the edges on the grill side. I flip the burgers and move everything around and i do not notice uneven cooking. I’ve cooked 4 eggs and 2 small pancakes and bacon at the same time on the flat side. I start with the bacon, as it shrinks i move it to the side and put the pancakes down and then the eggs.

It was just as it was described.

Nesco T1000-13 Two Slice Toaster Wide Slot : Like the retro look

My husband and i are very satisfied with the purchase of this lovely toaster. We have had it for over a year and use it frequently and it still performs great.

I went with other reviewers and bought the unheard of brand because it is 1000 watt. Toasts faster and more evenly than other toasters that i’ve had. Very lightweight so it gets put away after use, saves counterparts space. Easy to use, indexed toasting, wide openings and such. Just do not put too thick bread slices in, and best to stand by because it does get hot. I really like this toaster, it’s all we need, will probably last too.

NESCO T1000-13 Two Slice Toaster Wide Slot, 2, Grey/Stainless Steel

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Toast 1 or 2 slices at a time
  • Extra-wide 1.375 Inch bread slots with self-adjusting guides
  • User-friendly control panel / Shade control dial with (6) shade settings
  • Bagel, Defrost and Cancel functions with blue indicator lights
  • Lift & Look lever for checking the toasting progress

Works great and toast fits in slots well.

Wide openings and variable settings for toasting. Took a little getting used to but now get perfect toast and english muffins every time.

Pros: consistently perfect toast. Basket holds artisan breads in place. I freeze some breads and the defrost and toast feature provides a crisp outside and warm inside. Cons: outside of toaster can get hot. Wish the lift-up-to-see feature lifted the toast a little higher.

NESCO T1000-13 Two Slice Toaster Wide Slot, 2, Grey/Stainless Steel : It’s bigger than i expected, but it still fits in my cupboard for storage. I recommend you set it on 4 or 5, don’t put bread in, and let it run a cycle before using. Turn your stove fan on and/or open the doors and windows. But, after that, it is good to go. I used it to make rice bread toast and it did well. It’s 1000 watts and wow, does it get with the program. It doesn’t get hot underneath and not much on the sides, mainly on top, so be careful not to put it underneath cupboards when toasting. I love the checking feature, where you pull the handle up and look at it if you want without canceling the toasting. I wouldn’t say it’s the most handsome toaster, but it appears to be very functional. It says black, but mine is dark gray and highly polished chrome, much shinier than the pictures. I’m quite happy with it, so far. Update:i changed it to 4 stars, only because it does not brown evenly. I have been using flourless bread now, not just the rice bread, so thought i should update.

This is the first toaster i’ve had in 5 years that i haven’t wanted to throw out the window after 2 days. I can make several sets of toast and have them all come out pretty much the same color. It works great with my heavy homemade bread, haven’t tried bagels yet. I really, really like the ‘lift up and check’ feature.

Nice looking toaster and works well. Love the different heat levels and how easy it is to use. Looks great on my counter and the small footprint.

Fully meet our expectations. Great to get a toaster that works like one should. We have purchased several and returned them allover several months trying to replace our old one that stopped working. After researching and reading consumer reviews, decided onthe nesco and could not be happier. The wattage difference and quality of build makes this an outstanding choice. Would recommendto anyone looking for a new toaster.

When i was reading reviews about other toasters everyone was saying how the toasters they bought wouldn’t toast the bread equally on both sides. That is not a problem with this toaster. I’ve actually never seen a toaster toast bread equally on both sides ad this one does. All the ones i’ve had i would have to flip it half way through. It may cost a bit more, but the saying of ‘you get what you pay for’ is a great example here. Best toaster i’ve had by far and i’ve had many.

Absolutely wonderful toaster. I am real fussy, like most savvy buyers, did all my homework researching, and decided on this one. Finally a toaster that works like you want it to.It toasts well consistently to the darkness we like (medium) on slightly over the 2-setting (goes up to 5), and quickly (around two minutes). It is made wide enough to toast bagels, and looks great on the counter top. It also has a well constructed look and feel. We like the convenient toast crumbs clean-out tray.

Nice even color and works very fast.

I was not familiar with this brand but was pleased with the outstanding reviews so took the chance. The design is exactly what we wanted to replace our ‘vintage’ russell hobbs as we leave the toaster out on the counter. It toasts beautifully, has an icon by the slots so you know how to position bagels properly and includes a very useful defrost feature. We also appreciate that it has the ‘lift and look’ feature which does not override the actual toasting function. The only drawback, for us, is that it has a short cord. I love this as a safety feature but our outlets are under the cabinet and so the toaster has to be plugged, unplugged and repositioned for use and storage. But that is the ‘fault’ of our upper cabinet placement, and my own preferences, since i don’t want the appliance placed directly beneath the cabinets or to use an extension cord. Though not enough to deduct a star, our instruction book is incomplete in english.Particularly strange for an american made product.

The nesco t1000 i bought was made in usa. Powerful and pretty versatile. Heated it full blast first time empty to burn off the filaments.

Slots could be widder but toast comes out good.

Buy this one after purchasing and returning 4 different toasters over the last year — toasters that either didn’t toast evenly, stopped working, or fell apart, including two very expensive models — we are in love with this beauty of a toaster. It is solidly made out of metal. The bagel function actually works. The controls are simple and functional. The doneness dial produces consistent results even when doing multiple batches. Thank you nesco for making our mornings toasty and happy.

Best toast so far that we’ve ever had.

What can be said about a metal box with elements to brown bread other than it works as described and without fail. Hopefully it will hold up like the toasters of old.

It’s great to have toast again.

I love the retro vibe of this toaster. Toast is not quite as crispy as i would like, but better than other toasters i’ve had. Not crazy about the crumb tray as it is small and shallow, but it’s ok. Overall, a good purchase and i’m happy with it.

Very cool, retro looking toaster. It is supposed to be black but is actually a dark gunmetal gray, which looks even better than black.

Nesco GWK-03D – Beautiful electric glass kettle poor quality and design

I chose this kettle because it is glass and the least toxic one i could find. My only complaints are that it slides all over my counter top and doesn’t stay put, maybe i can put some rubber underneath it to keep it in place. When you choose a temperature, it does not beep when it reaches the temp, only the light flashes, so i have to keep my eye on it. If i don’t catch the kettle right when the light flashes for a temp under boiling, it continues to heat and brings it to a boil.

Bought after searching several months for a plastic-free kettle. Has zero ‘new-appliance’ smell. The last one i had ( a different brand, cannot remember which) was stainless steel and even after months of use continued to have a faint chemical smell. The only smell i detect is coming from the heating element on the base and i hope it is temporary. There’s a wonderful feature that was a pleasant surprise and a completely unexpected bonus: the ability to heat water to different temperatures – great for making different types of tea which require water to be some temperature other than ‘boil’. There are three or four different temp settings. But my favorite feature by far is an absolutely beautiful blue light illuminatomg the perimeter of the heating element – very aesthetically pleasingupdate january 2017:downgrading the review due to the following:’c-‘/cheap quality – after less than a month, the kettle developed a strong burnt plastic smell. The plastic underside of the kettle housing (not the base) showed melted plastic – i think the heating element was coming in contact with the inside of the plastic housing and was causing the plastic to burn and smell. I didn’t want to pay for returning it so ended up patching the bottom w electricians tape and continued to use. Another small annoyance (not a deal breaker though) – it also stopped shutting off automatically as soon as it reaches boiling point. It does shut off after about 10 seconds of boiling. Poor design – as other reviews mention, why the annoyingly beeps and useless ‘keep warm’ feature at lower-than-boiling temp settings??.

This is exactly the kettle i’ve been wanting. I wanted something made of glass (so that i’m no longer drinking boiled metal and plastic), and something with temperature settings (so i can properly brew different types of tea), and a nice sleek kettle shape (rather than a really bulbous shape, which is always a bit harder for me to handle). It is very quiet, and it boils water just about as quickly as other electric kettles i’ve used. The handle is ergonomic and comfortable (for my weak little hands), and the glass pitcher is much lighter than i thought it would be (weighs about the same as my old electric kettle, which is metal + plastic). It is also gorgeous and sleek– shiny all over, with a pretty blue led that lights up when its heating the water. To prevent calcium/mineral deposits from staining the glass, i put a big of vinegar into half a kettle of water and boil it, then gently swash it around as i pour it out. Here are the specifications for the Nesco GWK-03D:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 1.8 Quart Glass Pitcher with Level Marks; BPA free
  • 360 degree swivel power base with cord storage
  • Stainless steel concealed heating element and trim
  • Kettle turns off when reaches chosen temperature
  • Removable, washable filter

This was a good replacement for another kettle that died after many years of service. It’s beautiful, the glass allow to see the quantity of water. I would like to have the same model in a half size or approximate one liter.

This is one of a long line of m electric kettles for me. Some stopped working in a month and the only reliable ones could only boil water. As a tea drinker i use various temperatures. Well this product delivers the goods in a beautiful package. I had a small issue with the pot and the customer service was gracious and speedy.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Perfect enough kettle at last!
  • Beautiful electric glass kettle poor quality and design
  • Annoying features mar nice kettle design

Before buying this kettle i read most reviews of most kettles that came close to filling (ha-ha) my criteria: stainless or glass, minimal or no plastic, nice looking, cordless, variable temperature settings. The most common fault with most kettles is water that’s heated which contacts plastic, silicone, etc. Of the top kettles i considered – around 12, ranging from $40-$150.I chose it even though it had one review, before this one. Here’s why it’s good:heating/heated water contacts only glass. Yes, there is plastic on the underneath part of the lid and the screen on inside area of spout (meant to keep out tea leaves, i guess), but the screen is removable, and the release-button on the top of the kettle flips open the lid so that after water is heated, there is minimal contact of steam with plastic, which might condense back in to kettle. This is why i chose the kettle. So many reviewers liked kettles for many features but complained about plastic taste, odor, or both, and fears that continual contact of plastic with hot water in water-gage windows could cause health problems. At the bottom of the carafe, there is a stainless button that connects with heating element, but i can see no plastic at all.

Several features of this water kettle deserve a thumbs up: the glass kettle, the sleek/compact design, and the removable filter. However, there are a couple of annoying features that may irritate you every time it’s used. The first is that when pressing the on button, the lightweight base tips slightly. After checking to see if it was the cord or some other reason why it tipped, i determined it was the lack of a third small ‘leg’ that makes the base sit unevenly on the counter. The second annoying feature is the beep sound that emits when the hot kettle is lifted off the base. Why was this was incorporated into the design of this kettle?. To alert parents that a child is lifting a hot kettle full of boiling water?. And there is no way to turn this alert off. This is an expensive kitchen appliance that simply heats water – if you’re willing to put up with the irritation until another quality glass kettle is available, then it’s worth it.

Within a week of purchase developed a leak at the bottom of the pot. Took off the bottom plate and tightened a nut to fix. Worked great for 13 months then the lid hinge broke. Continued to use it and then heating mechanism failed.

Best quality product, easy to clean, and much larger and faster to boil than cheaper versions. The plate is electric, and there are no open heating elements, much safer for fdmily use, and easy to clean.

I concur with all the positives. The only thing missing is a ‘beep’ when the time is up. Otherwise, it’s a fabulous kettle.

I love this kettle because of the blue light and being able to choose the temp of the water. I have ordered 2 now because the lid broke on the first one, and now the lid has broken on the second one. They need to work on the lid mechanism but the pot itself works great and has no odd odor.

This is my second electric kettle, as the previous one lasted about 10 years. This kettle is quite a nice upgrade over my previous one that pretty much heated the water to boiling, didn’t notify you that it had reached that point and probably was plastic even though it looked like stainless. This kettle is all glass except for a small filter at the top which is mostly unnecessary and quite removable. The settings for different types of teas is a very nice feature as i never remember, anyway, that it is an issue. There are other kettles that have different temperature settings, but they were quite a bit more expensive. The handle is a nice material that makes it steady to hold without slipping especially if the kettle is rather full. I like its compact size and design as i do not really like small appliances hogging up lots of kitchen real estate. Overall, i am very pleased with this kettle for its design, usability and price.

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.

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.

Nesco Gwk-57 : Awesome kettle

I limit the amount of plastic in my life, and like to see the water boil, so this is a beautiful issue to my countertop. It may have limited functionality, but it works fine for me. The spout is very nice, the lid does not stick like others i have had, and it’s a very attractive design. It also seems well made and i hope it lasts awhile. Best electric kettle i’ve ever owned or used.

I love my tea and researched like crazy to replace my amazing mini russell hobbs kettle that finally gave out and settled on this one after reading the reviews. It’s made of glass and brushed stainless steel and looks just like the photo. There is a small circular strip of silicone around the concealed heating element hmm. Wish list: long lasting, bpa free, fast, small footprint and super attractive design. Good points:bpa free (silicone strip though). Glass – fun to see water boil. Fun feature: blue ‘on’ light illuminates boiling water -looks great at night. Doesn’t take up much counter space. Has on/off tab – surprisingly, some kettles don’t have this basic feature.

Nesco Gwk-57, 1.7-Liter Glass Water Kettle

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 57-ounce capacity
  • 360-degree swivel power base with cord storage
  • Removable, washable water filter
  • Stay-cool handle for a secure, comfortable grip
  • Easy to clean

I love this streamline and very efficient water kettle. The price range is great too.

It looks cool and all, but the button on the lid doesn’t always open the lid when being pressed. I have to press it a few times literally before the lid would open.

The product holds a sizable portion of water, without the bulkiness of a insulated heater carafe type. The unit can heat a whole pot in about 3 minutes to a full boil. It has a pleasant design, modern with a complete view of the heating water. Good value and great functionality. Cost a little more than some others , but it looks great and after a year of use- still boiling strong.

Nesco Gwk-57, 1.7-Liter Glass Water Kettle : This is different then my last hot pot and better built then many of the others. It’s clear and easy to see into the pot. The top opens with big visable button on top. The blue light is easy to see when the big toggle switch on the bottom is turned on. There is a filter at the spout to keep impurities out. I like the bright blue color and heavy plug.

Boils a french press worth of coffee in one minute, or a cup of water in about 30 seconds. The light illuminates the boil at night, really cool effect.

The best glass/electric kettle i have found to date. Holds plenty of water, fast heat time, and no smells.

It is very pretty but takes an awful long time to register that the water is boiling, so it completely soaked under my cabinet whenever i used it. I ended up returning it and getting the ‘cuisinart cpk-17 perfectemp 1. 7-liter stainless steel cordless electric kettle’ instead, and i am thrilled with that one.

The blue light is not nearly as bright as the photo makes out. It does take a long time to boil. . Longer than my previous $20 kettle.

We had an older style plastic one, but i always worried about drinking water that was boiled in plastic. We got this one for a wedding present and i love it. My only complaint is right when i start to pour out of it the stream seems a little large, like it might spill, it never has. But i always start to pour then it startles me, then i continue pouring and all is well. Just may be me over thinking is stream size.

I had one prior to this one and bought it at a local all in one super market. It lasted about 2 years and then one morning the switch would no longer work. I went from store to store and could not find it locally. I went on line and purchased this one for $40 more. It is not as nice as my previous one that is why only 4 stars. After it boils it leaves moisture beads at the top of the glass and it never goes away. My last one did not do that. I don’t know why the difference between the 2 but my first one never left moisture. After it boiled the glass was clear as could be.

Only down side is the top gets hot after boiling, so opening, refilling and closing if you have company and have to boil a lot of water is a little tricky and a bit of a chore. Aside from that, beautiful kettle, does what it’s supposed to, blue backlight is an excellent touch.

I was hesitant to purchase this kettle because it had many negative reviews. I was especially worried about the weakness of the handle and the top. However, i have been using it for six months now (and i am very rough on my kettles, boiling it at least six times a day and probably closer to ten) and i love it. It looks fantastic on the kitchen counter and i really like that you can see the water beginning to boil. The handle is plastic but i haven’t had any issues with it nor has it shown any signs of weakness. If you’re looking for a stylish glass kettle, i recommend this one.

I wanted a modern looking kettle and this was the best looking one at the price range. I got it when it was on sale so the review is slightly inflated for that. At full price, i’m not sure i would buy it. It boils water slightly faster than my older plastic kettle but is quite loud. The design is great though, it looks much more expensive than it is and has held up well so farpros- looks great- comes to a boil faster than my older kettlecons- at full price, it is quite expensive- slightly loud but i’m not sure if that can be helped?.

I’ve had this kettle for awhile now and i’m still in love with it. It’s attractive looking in my kitchen, what you see in the picture is very accurate. It heats water very quickly. It does exactly as advertised. Obviously if you fill the kettle completely full expect to wait longer for it to heat up, otherwise it starts to boil anywhere between 5-10 mins. I would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that the lid seems to stick. It’s just a minor problem and has no impact if the kettle works well or not so do not let my small problem prevent you from purchasing this beautiful and functional water kettle. Did i mention its not plastic.

This is a delightful small appliance. We became friends very quickly. I knew these existed, it just never occurred to me to purchase one. After decades of heating water in the microwave and stove top–and always hating it–i found this gem. It works perfectly, looks great and gives me instant hot water for my coffee, tea and oatmeal. It’s the little things that give you joy, you know?.

Love the design (and got compliments about it from visitors), but it’s quite slow in boiling water.

Love the features: cordless, large capacity, stainless and glass, auto shutoff. To me, it seems more hygienic than a plastic pot, looks really high-end and is fun to watch. I purchased and open box model and saved nearly half the retail cost.

I had chef’s choice m679 cordless electric glass kettle i have been using for one 6 month and worked excellent, but i have always problem to feel water into kettle because the button to open lid on kettle was always stuck and did not open easy and eventually broke. So i decide to look for different style and i picked nesco gwk-57, 1. So far i am happy with purchase and cover opens easy.

I had some doubt on the lid quality which has some plastic in it. Even on the very first use it didn’t smell. The kettle is a little noisy but nothing other then that. The power switch is designed to stay off if the kettle was removed from the base. That actually makes use of this product really safe in case no water in it at the moment the kettles is back on its base. Added to my review 2 1/2 years later after purchase: the power switch finally got loose. It appears that plastic tips on it broke off. The switch is not able to maintain ‘on’ position longer.

I’ve purchased many electric water kettles for work, home and friends. It has an automatic shut off, the water comes to a rolling, circular boil with a blue light shining on it which makes it interesting to look at. It’s very light weight, has a good handle, easy flip turn on switch, push button on the top that opens the lid. Sometimes i push it more than once, but that’s o. I’ve been using it for over a year and it’s still working perfectly. The price is good, it’s all good.

Nesco American Harvest 4816-25-30 Non-Stick 6-Quart Roaster Oven – one hot roaster!!!!!

This is so simple to clean up when all the cooking is about and finished with. When i cook dinner meat it really is always sooo tender. Enjoy this cooker so substantially that i ordered a single as a xmas present for my daughter in-regulation.

I have so far been delighted with the nesco roaster, but i’ve only applied it twice. I followed instructions to enable it to smoke off to start with, but it continued to smoke plastic-y smells for a great deal extended than instructions prompt it would. It took numerous hrs of remaining plugged in in the garage right before the smoking slowed down at all. Nonetheless, i roasted a rooster in it that same working day and it did not appear to have an impact on the flavor.

My roaster is all i predicted. I have one presently but i like it so a lot , i had to get one particular a lot more.

I bought this roaster to use as a sizzling pot, simply because the very hot pot gradual cookers on the sector these days prepare dinner factors to quickly. They boil the dickens out of everything. They are just to hot even on the reduced location. This nesco is pretty fantastic,because it has a variable heat knob but. The exterior of it gets so very hot, could get a unpleasant burn off if your not thorough. Even when its turned down to slow cook. You have to have to convey to the loved ones that she’s a scorching pot and never touch. Wish they would have set a minor insulation or a heat barrier in the facet of the device to insulate it some. . Other than that it is a good very little device. So recall she’s very hot and she’ll make you trot, so touch er’ not.

Fantastic for chili, roasting a hen, and so on. Super easy to cleanse thanks for the non-stick area.

Had cheap alum top rated my five calendar year outdated was glass.

  • Clean up is a breeze!
  • Very pleased with it

I have four nesco roasters and like them all.

I have only utilised it as a slow cooker so much.

I use this at least once a 7 days and feel it’s the ideal.

We individual two of this model roaster and they work excellent for ham, turkey, meat loaf, and any sluggish cooking jobs. It’s good for transferring cooking jobs outdoor through warm weather. A functional and wounderful equipment.

Outstanding cooker with superior heating abilities and a great, tight seal between pan and lid. However, the merchandise really speedily began shedding its non-stick coating and we are forced to use cooker baggage.

Cooks excellent , cleans up really perfectly like the simple fact that you can acquire the within out to clean.

The best electric ‘oven’ you could ever want. . Initial one lasted approx 5 several years.

Good detail to use if it is too hot to bbq and never want to warmth up the home. Has no problem retaining up with the demand from customers of my household size.

Quality is great for the rate. I allow it bake outside the house for two hrs on significant and it was great. My to start with food was a turkey breast and it was terrific. I was upset that the relatively tacky grill insert factor hardly held up to a turkey breast then the lid would not absolutely shut. I utilised a vegetable steamer insert rather, dilemma solved. Next meal was rooster wings and it was ok. Cooker does arrive with an outstanding recipe e-book with a good deal of good thoughts in it. If you truly require a roaster oven then go for it but i never believe it is a will have to have.

I have employed this solution as a gradual cooker and a roaster, it is great. I would recomend it to everyone.

Exclusive “Circle of Heat” element wraps around for moist cooking

From the sides not the bottom like a crock pot. This is my third nesco but my 1st non adhere. I use this all the time as an alternative of an oven.

My all-time preferred for cooking. Can use to bake, roast and sluggish-prepare dinner. Wonderful for soups, sauces and even does frozen pot-pies. I am stunned that this not applied a lot more in position of sluggish-cookers.

Roast, bake, steam, and gradual cook. Is ideal for a modest spouse and children. It will keep a 3 to five lb chicken comfortably. The rooster will come out moist and tender but the skin will not brown all that good. I rotate the hen so the breast meat and the back again can be uncovered to the sides of the cookwell where the warmth is produced. I manufactured my first batch of ribs in the nesco and they had been tumble off the bone tender. I debated on browning them below the broiler initial but determined to just put them in to see how they would do and they browned nicely.

Can be employed as a sluggish cooker way too. Been working with a nesco roaster rather of my oven for a long time. Really don’t cook in it and go away the house. Moister escapes and you have to insert h2o.

I am working with my new roaster for the scorching stone remedies that i do on my customers. It’s the ideal measurement for my in residence business enterprise. Never overlook to enable it smoke for an hour or much more, the odor is awful if you never.

Had a person for many yrs but wished the new non stick liner.

Full 6 Qt cookwell capacity

I had to slash my whole chicken in 50 % to match it in but does superior occupation.

We are really glad with our buy .

Roater above for above thirty decades and not long ago acquired yet another to use at one more assets. These are great, could not be with out. Also great for retaining warm hen or ribs or no matter what off the grill. I use for a multitude of cooking items.

Compact still spacious sufficient for huge rooster, roast or pork chops with all side veggies. Cooks evenly and quickly instead than utilizing slow cooker. Neighbor has a person and recommended as well.

We have utilized it numerous instances and we are one hundred% satisfied.

I obtained a nesco roaster many years ago as a gift and cooked in it so normally that it was wearing thin and starting off to get rusty in spots from the coating coming off. I seemed in lots of merchants to change it and could never ever find it. I remembered about it the a person day as i was buying online and resolved to see if they have been even now accessible or if the corporation went out of enterprise and i was astatic when i located them.

Terrific item, this is my 2nd one particular and i have bought one particular for all my youngsters.

Cookwell easily removes for easy cleaning

This is only my next nesco roaster oven in 30 a long time. There was no dilemma i wanted a new one just like the outdated. I’ve made soup, roasted chicken, slow cooked many, several meals and, of course, even baked a cake in it. So flexible, from fewer than two hundred degrees to around 450.

I like this solution, simply because my wife loves it . Great solution, remarkable excellent .

I bought my initial nesco in 1987 and have employed it at the very least when a 7 days at any time since. As the other 5 star rankings mention you can cook dinner virtually everything to perfection, if you check out. I go on to invest in these as presents for some others. It is superb for ribs ,rooster, and roasts. Which i can use at holiday seasons for substantial roasts hams and turkeys. Does call for you have the room for storage but the 6 qt. Is no more substantial than the normal crock pot. I have people also but my favorite by significantly, is the 6 qt nesco. When the tiny nesco will keep a whole chicken and you close up with a pleasant juicy rooster with no fuss. A person of the biggest advantages with the nesco is if you are living in an apt. Condominium or dwelling you do not heat up your full dwelling area prepare dinner evening meal. Assume of the income you conserve on ac and electric power.

Real food items roasted to perfection. Put lean meat and vegetables alongside one another in the nesco at 350 degrees for about an hour to a hour and a 50 percent. Hardly ever stress about scorching or about cooking. Often a fulfilling and wholesome loved ones food.

This is just the correct dimension cooker. I set it in my garage on a desk considering the fact that i have minimal counter house. You can prepare dinner a roast with potatoes & carrots, a whole chicken, or a little turkey.

Automatic temperature control

Nesco 4842-47 Professional Roast Air Roaster Oven, We love cooking with roaster ovens and wished we could find

We bought one because my mother-in-law has a larger one and we were always borrowing it. It makes the best turkey that is so juicy and with a crispy skin. Don’t be intimidated by the air portion of this roaster. It really makes a big difference in the cooking that it is not just a roaster.

I’ve used the roaster a several moments. I employed oil/butter above the chicken and sprinkled spices on leading. The rooster browned and was delectable.

I genuinely preferred this roaster, and they way it can take care of diverse features. A person extremely bad factor i encountered with mine however was rust. It is possibly the shaft from the admirer motor or the admirer motor internals itself is causing rust to operate down the shaft and into the pan. It has gotten worse and extremely diffficult to clear. I am wondering if i just received a lemon as i see no a single else has described this difficulty. I am going to attempt and clear it again and see if it stops, if not i will have to test a further roaster. There is no way i can deal with rust in my foodstuff. If it was not for that this would be 5 stars effortlessly.

Comments from buyers

“Use as normal oven with the convection as a crisper at the end of normal cooking., When you need more than a large crockpot!!!, Great Item when Large is TOO big.”

I genuinely like this oven roaster, but it is a suffering to cleanse. I use it for pulled pork & chili. I will check out roasting a rooster in it to see how that functions.

This is the next a person i have owned wore out the initial 1 soon after 5 yearseasy to use and cooks greatone of the greatest options it will maintain the meat at the appropriate temperature for a extensive time without having drying it out.

This product or service is a quite excellent addition to kitchen. I can make large amounts of soups, or just make a substantial measurement roast, beef or pork, or roast a big rooster or twelve pound turkey. The high-quality is good, holds and maintains temps. I would advocate this merchandise to anyone.

I enjoy this cooker and have employed it many situations for unique points and each individual time all the things turned out excellent. It heats pretty very well and will not take up substantially space like the more substantial cookers. I would unquestionably endorse this cooker.

Cooked our thanksgiving turkey flawlessly, haven’t tried out the other issues it can do but i would very endorse this solution.

I have spouse and children, 25-40 individuals, about for several vacations and family members celebrations and normally will need to cook dinner a huge amount of money of potatoes or vegetables-this is great. My sister-in-regulation borrowed this for a graduation social gathering, she utilized cooking spray and thoroughly clean up was a breeze, even while it appeared baked on.

I have a six quart and a eight quart nesco and i still wished a little something even larger for a greater piece of meat. Very well, i have to say, this will do beautifully. This is one substantial roaster that can cook a compact turkey or ham very easily for my partner and i. I have cooking in it suitable now a large roaster hen and it suits in very well. I experimented with my eight quart and the hen would not in good shape in. The motive for only four stars is what another person else stated and that is the manage on this. It is the worse style i have noticed. To raise it with your hand in front and raise the lid to the back, you can get scorching steam all about your wrist. I am elevating it with my arm at the facet which is awkward but at minimum i am not obtaining a warm wrist. Nesco requirements to re design and style this manage on this lid.

I have not made use of this yet as i just acquired it, but my mother has many sizes and they function great. I have applied them in the previous and i take pleasure in the relieve of use of these tiny ovens. I will update my review as soon as i use this oven.

I changed an aged roaster with this. I had to get made use of to how considerably hotter and additional speedily this roaster cooks. I bought burned by the steam when i elevated the lid the 1st time i utilized it, so be cautious of that. I only established the lid on the top rated now. I adore that it does not have the ‘no stick’ inside, part of the reason i bought it. It does clean up very easily with out the no adhere junk on most roasters. Multiple warmth options is wonderful and it is a excellent size far too. I truly am so happy i purchased this roaster.

Rather pleased, due to the fact we experienced no other oven at the time, and appreciate the portability of it.

Nesco roaster oven is effective perfectly if employed correctly. The 1st turkey in this roaster was dry and overdone on the surface area and however company on the bone internally. The bird was not accomplished evenly. A simply call to nesco and assessment of the working experience of other’s will make it apparent that the best way to use this roaster is to use a conventional warmth environment without the need of the convection unit turned on for the big portion of the cooking. When the hen is just about completed change the convection supporter on to brown and crisp the outdoors. The hen will merely not be accomplished evenly if you use the convection admirer for the whole cooking time. Be sure to contemplate this a extremely good sized regular roaster oven with the additional characteristic of the convection fan to brown and crisp. You will be pleased if you use the roaster in this method.

We love cooking with roaster ovens and wished we could discover a scaled-down unit for the two of us for smaller foods. I appeared on my most loved purchasing web-site (amazon) and there i discovered the best answer. We use this oven extra than the bigger established due to the fact it is great and straightforward to clean. This device is extra adaptable than the larger units for the reason that most meals do not have to have to be cooked in the eighteen to twenty quart models. If you have this oven you will use it much more frequently and recognize that roaster ovens are superior to typical ovens for tenderness. Consider it and you will grow to be a believer.

Nesco is pretty handy, terrific for doing various chickens at a single time. I have done smaller sized turkeys and big batches of chilli and stew, anything i’ve cooked so far has turned out amazing. It cooks a lot hotter and speedier than a crock pot. If i experienced to do over likely would not have invested in the convection sort however. It has to be taken out for cleaning and limits the top of whichever you are striving to prepare dinner owing to the enthusiast secured on the inside of the lid. I’ve had mine for seven mths now and have utilised it many moments. I am particularly pleased with the products.

Incredibly good quality and value. Operates nicely but does acquire up a large footprint.

I now experienced one of these and i beloved it.

This is the most effective thing that i have procured over the last twenty yrs. Helps make lifestyle a breeze, meal goes in just before function, comes out beautifully when you get household.

This roaster is not as good a excellent as they were in the 80-90’s. The lid on this 1 has incredibly sharp edges. The exterior will get very hot which i you should not bear in mind occurring with my aged 6 quart nesco.

It’s so nice to have this nesco due to the fact the dimensions is great for so many things.

Performs fantastic be carful when steaming so as not to burn up your arm when opening the lid.

I have had other cookers and never ever been happy with them they just stayed in my cabinet,this cooker is good. Heating cooking cleaning is all great.

There is no other roaster greater than this 1. Just did an 11 pound youthful turkey and it was remarkable. Did not need the admirer for convection as we never have. Turkey came out soooo juicy, extremely delicious, browned and amazing. And, i cooked it outside the house, on my portch so i didn’t have to heat up my dwelling. If you like juicy meats or whichever, then this is a products for you. The biggest dimension nesco is most unbelievable for the 20 pound or larger birds. I use mine for thanksgiving. Get a small organized rooster, things it with a geared up duck, and stuff them both of those in the turkey.

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.

I requested this nesco roaster right after not likeing a pair issues about my initially just one. The to start with 1 was the non-stick cookwell and the lid was i guess aluminum. Whilst i never ever utilized steel utinsils in the cookwell it even now received scratches and started out peeling and the lid begun to rust so i was enthusiastic to get this product with the steel roaster and glass lid. Sadly the lid did not appear as mentioned and like my last just one it is rusty on the lookout. I had browse a evaluation where by this happened to somebody else & would like they would right the description if it is mistaken as i would have not requested it with the exact same lid. I am content with this cookwell though and it does make fantastic food stuff.

Nesco 4816-25PR 6 Qt. Stainless Steel Roaster with Nonstick Cookwell : Bought one from qvc in 1991 and it still works. I use it for hot stones now since the lid is chipping paint. That is why i wanted one with a glass lid. Well, i didn’t get the glass lid.

So content that i was able to uncover this measurement on the web to replace my previous merchandise. This is surely a need to have invest in.

I purchased this roaster to consider and change the previous faculty crock pots that my mother employed to cook with which cooked at a great deal reduce temps than today’s crock pots (they cook at some thing like 209 degrees now – versus one hundred eighty-190 in the more mature types – because of to fda food stuff safety regs evidently). So my system will be to prepare dinner at around one hundred eighty-a hundred ninety so i can truly gradual prepare dinner meat for 10+ hrs. Upon receiving the solution although, i have been to begin with upset. I experienced hoped the ‘porcelain cookwell’ would be equivalent to a crock pot in heft and thickness, but, assuming i have the right product, (4816-25prg which is a sticker on the box but due to the fact nesco seems to use the identical packaging and seemingly the identical photos online for both equally the porcelain and non-stick versions with very little pinpointing a big difference apart from the products id sticker i cannot be guaranteed) the cookwell basically would seem to be steel coated with porcelain. It is hence very mild and per the guide, the porcelain can be cracked. I have fears that it will not be quite durable, as some of the very poor evaluations have said. I would be expecting that a crock pot type porcelain cockwell would previous lengthier, by many years, than the outer shell containing the heating element. This cookwell having said that, i would be astonished if it lasted five yrs unless i am exceptionally careful though cleaning it. I have yet to try out out cooking with the merchandise to see if it at minimum fulfills my initial objective obtaining it: genuine sluggish cooking of meals. Probably i will update this evaluation at the time i have accomplished so.

I was happy to improve to the porcelain cookwell. I was dissatisfied,nevertheless, that i obtained the metal lid, not glass as advertised. I contacted the provider and was instructed only steel was readily available. If that is the case, you require to suitable that in your listing details.

Good product for your kitchen area, works terrific.

We use this roaster all of the time for soups, roasted rooster, beef etc. Heat is consistent and it is quick to clear.

Soon after working with the roaster only when, the liner was pretty complicated to clear. I seen the rim of the liner showed signs of rust. I returned the merchandise to amazon. Upon likely to the nesco internet site, i uncovered you can purchase a far better top quality liner for an further $eighteen. That would be okay if i have been utilizing the oringinal liner for a few of several years, but not immediately after only 1 use. Appreciate the cooker by itself, inadequate top quality on the liner.
