Why did you choose this product?
I bought this as a gift for people who also camp because I love my own Nesco Dehydrator for making wilderness camp food. It takes about 4 hours to dry fruit and vegetables sliced thin, longer for meat, and nothing has ever been ruined. A little noisy, really just a loud hum....

I bought this as a gift for people who also camp because I love my own Nesco Dehydrator for making wilderness camp food. It takes about 4 hours to dry fruit and vegetables sliced thin, longer for meat, and nothing has ever been ruined. A little noisy, really just a loud hum.Read More
works very quickly and quietly. easy to clean and store.Read More
This product is really awesome, I have never used a dehydrator before and this is really easy to use.. I have made fruit rolls and dried fruit and veggies. My jerky turned out really well. Highly recommended this productRead More
For the money this was a great deal. I have used it several times and everything comes out great. For beef jerky I have used a trip tip steak that is already seasoned and cut up the strips of steak and within 6-8 hours I have jerky! I can't wait to start on the fruits now that they are plentiful.Read More
Made some great Axis jerky, and it worked perfectly.Read More
I love this product! I run a small Beef Jerky company. I have tried many brands & styles. This dehydrator is by far the best portable on the market. Very sturdy, dependable, long life & being able to control the temp is a nice plus. With the top blower there is no need to rotate trays. I have never had a problem of top trays dripping onto lower trays with this awesome machine. Clean up is a breeze (even with sticky substances). I now own 6 & will only buy the Nesco FD-60. My sales have increased since I now only use the Nesco FD-60. Great product! I do recommend this item to all my friends, & to those friends I have yet to meet, look no further, you have struck gold!Read More
We bought this new deydrator to go along with our 20 year old Harvester dehydrator. My wife uses the old one every week to make jerky and wanted a new one to dry fresh fruit and herbs. There is absolutely no better dehdrator made and will last many years .Read More
I have been using this dehydrator almost continuously since I got it about a month ago. It is my first dehydrator, so I have nothing to compare it to, but so far, it is working like a charm. The different temp settings are handy for different types of food. I have made raisins, dried pineapple, apple, banana, asian pear, carrot, mushroom, orange and lime rind and so on. The only thing taking a bit of time is the raisins, since they have so much moisture. You can't beat the final product though.The user's manual is helpful, with directions for many kinds of foods. I can fit plenty of food it it for one person. My only small issue is it is a bit loud, though I imagine any dehydrator make some noise. If I leave it going overnight, I usually put it in the basement. Other than this, I would recommend this machine.Read More
A truly wonderful product. I would recommend for anyone who loves fruit on the go or loves jerky. This dehydrator keeps the freshness taste of the fresh fruit. I would recommend making a preservative to keep the fresh color. I use lemon juice and a touch of clover honey and dip my fruit in it before dehydrating. It keeps the color and taste because some fruits brown as they dehydrate.Read More
Absolutely fabulous. De-hydrating everything! Fruit on sale? Now's the time to dry and put up for the winter. Seen the prices of peppers? Used a mandoline and dehydrated them. Using in casseroles with great results. Loved the different heat settings for different food items. Dried onions and processed into powder. Most potent flavor ever with no additives!Read More
Questions & Answers
Looks like good value to preserve food in season I normally would try to freeze.
I have one that I love and use to dry herbs and fruit in season. My daughter is growing her own herb garden and needs to have a method to preserve them as you can't possibly use all at the same time. Great birthday gift. This is a quiet and quick method to dry herbs before freezing them.
I can use it.
