  • Nice product but,

    We have two nesco units. The first purchase is the FD-1010 (a few years ago) and we recently purchased the FD-1040. The first unit heats from the bottom and the 2nd unit heats from the top. We loaded both units up with sliced apples to dry w/10shelves each. The FD-1040 took an hour longer to dry. There appears to be no benefit of this unit, fd-1040, compared to the older one, fd-1010 other than the timer. At this point in time I wish we would have purchased another FD-1010. I do not know why a timer is not in the fd-1010. It does not take and engineering miracle to do that.....
