    • Love it

      Just over a year ago, I got one of these dehydrators secondhand. I loved it and used it on almost a daily basis. Then, sadly, during the height of canning/dehydrating season, it died. A friend loaned me her dehydrator, which was a different brand and style. I can honestly say that I was missing my Nesco something terrible and when this model went on sale, I received it as a gift. My friend's dehydrator got me through (sort of) and being able to do the comparison was great for me. Now I know that when I need a dehydrator, I will be buying a Nesco, and not another brand. They are reliable, quiet, and I love the fact that I can stack and use just as many trays as I want. I love the fact that the trays from my old dehydrator fit into my new dehydrator. I will only have to buy one more set of main trays to have the 12 that will fit this model. At this point, I have only dehydrated fruits and veggies in it (my kids LOVE the fruit leather I make for them) but I am looking forward to making some jerky this winter. I cannot recommend this dehydrator enough.

    • No Hassle Dehydrator

      The strange thing about this dehydrator is that it doesn't have an on/off switch, making it a pain to check the progress of your drying. Having said that, works great, works fast and powerful motor but is surprisingly QUIET.

    • What a great gadget !!!

      I had an old dehydrator previously that was just ok and took many hours to produce the required results. This one has the old one beat hands down. It's built much better , is fairly quiet ,looks great and the results are marvelous. I bought this mainly for making jerky for my dog due to the problems with commercial dog products from China causing illness and death. I have also used it for people jerky that is great. This machine work like a charms in much less time than my old one. I highly recommend it to anyone .

    • My Pet Treats Maker

      I bought this to make sweet potato trears for our dogs. Our Golden Retriever puppy has severe allergies to fowl, and there are not very many treats I can buy that don't have chicken in them. Plus, I have to worry about where the treats are made. I've used my new dehydrator twice now. My sweet potato treats came out better the second time, but only because I sliced them thicker. Our pets love them, and it's a lot easier than baking treats. My next project is beef jerky for my husband. This was a great investment for our kitchen, especially since store-bought sweet potato treats are not cheap!

    • Very Quick!

      I love this product! It dries fruit and vegetables very quickly and is a very nice size. I only have the 4 trays it came with plus the solid piece for doing fruit roll ups but I would recommend getting a couple of additional trays if you do a lot of drying at once. The only thing I would add is an on/off switch in the unit. The unit needs to be plugged and unplugged to turn it on and off which is somewhat a hassle, especially since you can't see inside. The trays and the base are solid and not clear so protect what you are drying from the light which is fine. However, this requires that in order to see if the items are done you need to lift the top and without an on/off switch you have to unplug it to shut the power off. Otherwise this product is excellent and I got it for a great price on Overstocks!
