  • It Works

    So far I have dried squash and banana chips, my son made jerky. All have turned out nicely. It does take a long time to dry things though, figure over night and then some. It isn't very noisy about like a microwave oven, and it doesn't get too hot to touch. Make sure you have plenty of shelf space to allow for the drier and ventilation for cooling. I am having fun with it and enjoying my healthy dried snacks. If you want to experiment with drying food it is a good starting point.

  • Love it

    While searching for dehydrators, to make chicken jerky for my dog, I came across this one. I knew Nesco had a good reputation, but I had second thoughts after placing the order because I read about so many other ways to make jerky without a dehydrator. As I waited for this to arrive I experimented with making it in the oven. Am I GLAD I got this! So much quicker, and easier! My friend said her dehydrator took 6-7 hours and mine was done in less than 3. The jerky is a safer alternative to treats imported from China, and I highly recommend people take the time to make their own. So far I love this! Will be making another batch this week.

  • Great Product!

    I'm a novice to the food dehydrating world, so this product was perfect for me! The instructions were easy, and I made healthy banana and apple "chips" that were delicious! The noise level is comparable to the dishwasher running, which didn't bother me. I would recommend putting the machine on a heat-resistant surface (I used my glass-top oven) as it gets very hot while running. Overall, it was a great value for the money, and I would recommend the Snackmaster to anyone!

  • My first dehydrator & I love it!

    This is my first dehydrator and so far I think it is great. The first week I had it I used it nonstop. I dehydrated everything I could think of. Fruits, veggies, and even marshmallows. I was worried that it would be to loud, because some of the other reviews stated so. I guess because I had expected it to be very loud, it just really is not that loud to me. I have not made jerky in it. We are not jerky fans. I purchased it to preserve veggies and herbs from my garden, and I think it is going to be perfect for that. I was also surprised at how fast it dried my veggies. I checked out many different ones before buying this one, and I do not think I could have found another one that was any better. I LOVE it!

  • Positive

    I am extremely happy w/this product. Makes jerky much faster than indicated..which is the main reason I bought. Drying fruit took longer than indicated, but worked non the less. Cleaning unit is fast and easy. For the price, this product is a steal! Delivery was faster than expected. Thank you Overstock!

  • Works well - doesn't take long to dehydrate

    I've used this a lot since I purchased it, and I have to say that I'm pretty satisfied with the product. I've dried fruits, herbs and jerky in it - all have been successful, and have taken less time than the instructions/manual quoted (so be sure to check it often). I packed the trays full with herbs this year, and ran it consecutively, and it did just fine. The trays are dishwasher-safe, which is a major plus (my husband does the dishes, so if it's not dishwasher-safe, it won't get washed). The trays aren't the most durable, hence the 4 star rating, so I highly recommend being careful when removing them from the dishwasher, etc. One of my trays has a small crack in it but it still stacks fine with the other trays, and serves its purpose.

  • When it runs

    I have had this dehydrator for sometime now. It runs but overheats and the automatic safety shuts down the unit until it cools down. I can still use the product but I need to run an accesory fan close by like on the unit I would not recommend this brand to anyone I plan on buying a different brand as soon as I can afford it and not on

  • First time user - having fun experimenting!

    I had never seen a food dehydrator before, let alone used one, and I'm enjoying the learning process. I have been experimenting with drying foods to take on backpacking trips, and have been drying apricots, nectarines, peaches, cherries, blueberries, kale, tofu, basil leaves, bananas and tofu. it's been really easy. I have been using parchment paper for small or more liquid foods, and it's been working fine. Although a recipe book comes with it, I've been looking on-line for additional ideas. As the fan is 'white noise' you might want to let it do its thing in a room where you don't need total silence. I am also considering using a plug-in timer to allow more flexibility for those times when I'm not around to switch it off. Bon appetit!

  • Fabulous item

    I've used this item hours and hours. It's worked amazingly, and is much quicker than my old retired model. It dehydrates evenly through all racks, and has been very impressive.

The directions for this item are: Set the base tray on a sturdy countertop or table, away from sinks or any source of water. • Stack additional trays on the base tray. Your dehydrator requires a minimum of 5 trays to operate properly, the base tray is included as one of your 5 trays. (You may expand your dehydrator to 7 total trays with the use of Add-A-Tray accessories) • Place the top cover on the top tray, insert the blower into the trays and rotate to lock in place • Plug the cord into an electrical outlet, switch power to ON and you’re ready to dehydrate! overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 17, 2012
