  • Got this for a gift

    Got this for a gift, so haven't heard feedback on it yet. After reading about all other dehydrators, chose this one as it seemed the best for the price. Disappointed in the packaging, the box came torn on the one side. It was boxed to be shipped like that. No big deal if it wasn't a gift as the product wasn't damaged, just doesn't look very good...

  • Great gift for my daughter!

    I may have to get me one of these dehydrators! My daughter has made jerky and is now making treats for her three dogs. A great product and she is saving money.

  • 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.

  • 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!
