    This works well, although sometimes it gets a little hot for my liking. Maybe it's meant to be that way? I've never owned any other dehydrator to compare it against. Gets the job done.

  • Works well - doesn't take long to dehydrate
    Verified Purchase

    I've used this a lot since I purchased it, and I have to say that I'm pretty satisfied with the product. I've dried fruits, herbs and jerky in it - all have been successful, and have taken less time than the instructions/manual quoted (so be sure to check it often). I packed the trays full with herbs this year, and ran it consecutively, and it did just fine. The trays are dishwasher-safe, which is a major plus (my husband does the dishes, so if it's not dishwasher-safe, it won't get washed). The trays aren't the most durable, hence the 4 star rating, so I highly recommend being careful when removing them from the dishwasher, etc. One of my trays has a small crack in it but it still stacks fine with the other trays, and serves its purpose.

    So far I have dried squash and banana chips, my son made jerky. All have turned out nicely. It does take a long time to dry things though, figure over night and then some. It isn't very noisy about like a microwave oven, and it doesn't get too hot to touch. Make sure you have plenty of shelf space to allow for the drier and ventilation for cooling. I am having fun with it and enjoying my healthy dried snacks. If you want to experiment with drying food it is a good starting point.

    While searching for dehydrators, to make chicken jerky for my dog, I came across this one. I knew Nesco had a good reputation, but I had second thoughts after placing the order because I read about so many other ways to make jerky without a dehydrator. As I waited for this to arrive I experimented with making it in the oven. Am I GLAD I got this! So much quicker, and easier! My friend said her dehydrator took 6-7 hours and mine was done in less than 3. The jerky is a safer alternative to treats imported from China, and I highly recommend people take the time to make their own. So far I love this! Will be making another batch this week.

  • Great Product!
    Verified Purchase

    I'm a novice to the food dehydrating world, so this product was perfect for me! The instructions were easy, and I made healthy banana and apple "chips" that were delicious! The noise level is comparable to the dishwasher running, which didn't bother me. I would recommend putting the machine on a heat-resistant surface (I used my glass-top oven) as it gets very hot while running. Overall, it was a great value for the money, and I would recommend the Snackmaster to anyone!

  • My first dehydrator & I love it!
    Verified Purchase

    This is my first dehydrator and so far I think it is great. The first week I had it I used it nonstop. I dehydrated everything I could think of. Fruits, veggies, and even marshmallows. I was worried that it would be to loud, because some of the other reviews stated so. I guess because I had expected it to be very loud, it just really is not that loud to me. I have not made jerky in it. We are not jerky fans. I purchased it to preserve veggies and herbs from my garden, and I think it is going to be perfect for that. I was also surprised at how fast it dried my veggies. I checked out many different ones before buying this one, and I do not think I could have found another one that was any better. I LOVE it!

    I am extremely happy w/this product. Makes jerky much faster than indicated..which is the main reason I bought. Drying fruit took longer than indicated, but worked non the less. Cleaning unit is fast and easy. For the price, this product is a steal! Delivery was faster than expected. Thank you Overstock!
