It states that it dries food in hours instead of days. Does that mean that it you leave it plugged in and running; or is it more simple than that?
This dehydrator works well and is a good value for the cost, but it is rather noisy....

Didn't do a very good job of dehydrating the fruit.Read More
This dehydrator works well and is a good value for the cost, but it is rather noisy.Read More
I have been wanting a dehydrator as a way to preserve food other than canning & freezing. This works very well. The only problem I have is it is quite loud. My husband thinks it is too noisy to use and since it runs for several hours, that is a problem. The food quality is very good though. Herbs dry within an hour and tomato slices take 12-18 hours.Read More
I have been using this to dry apples, tomatios, peaches, sweet potatoes, chicken strips for my dogs and pork strips for my dogs. NO more chicken strips from China. It makes a lot of noise so I try to let it run overnight so we don;t have to listen to it. I really love it because I can save lots of fresh produce that would spoil otherwise.Read More
I have only made Kale chips with it so far but it worked faster than what the recipe (found online) stated it would take. A bit loud but I keep it in the basement anyway with the current heat wave......For someone who isn't addicted to dehydrating I think it will work well.Read More
I've only used it once, but it seemed to work pretty well. My only complaints are that it's a little noisy. I'm not sure how the noise compares to other dehydrators, but when it was in my kitchen, I could hear it in the basement with the door shut. It also has a pretty short cord. Other than that, it seems to do what it's suppose to do and for a good price. It has plenty of tiers, which can be added or removed depending on your needs. Overall, a good purchase.Read More
