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.
Although I consider this to be a reasonable value for the price, this unit does not have an on/off switch and must be unplugged from the wall when checking on the progress of items. A timer is another thing that could be helpful but is not included on this unit. The unit is basically dismantled when checking progress, although I have been very pleased with everything that I have dehydrated and with great success. Knowing now what I didn't know when I ordered, I would have spent the extra money to have a timer, a power switch, and a unit that trays could be checked/added/removed without taking the drying unit off and un-stacking the trays.
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 .
