    • 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.

    • Good Starter Dehydrator for the Price

      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.

    • 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 .

    • happy customer

      we purchased this product to dehydrate food for backpacking. So far, we have been very satisfied. We did have to purchase (separately) screens to set on top of trays to prevent smaller veggies from falling through the slots in the trays. We found the screens at our local Bed, Bath, and Beyond. They ordered the product and sent it to our home - free shipping. So far, so good!
