    Great price and does exactly what I want it to do...make delicious jerky! :0) I haven't used the cure or seasonings that came with it, as I made my own, but it also came with a recipe book!

  • Great product!
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased this product for my husband as an early birthday gift, so that he was able to make jerky from his latest adventure. He has made 2 batches so far and seems to be enjoying it. The cool thing about this product is that you can purchase additional trays if you need more room. Oh, and the jerky seasoning that comes with it is fantastic. Only problem is that not too many places carry the product, so you have to purchase it online.

  • Very nice
    Verified Purchase

    After many years using a round dehydrator with the motor attachment on the bottom,( it was a nightmare to clean) I saw this square one and liked the extra space it offers. I've used it 1 time and it works great, fast, quite and cleans up is the dishwasher no problem. Having the motor on top makes all the difference. I would recommend this 100%. I do wish it had an on/off switch instead of unplugging from the wall, but I'll trade that flaw for the ease of the top motor and clean up.

  • Great Price & Product
    Verified Purchase

    This dehydrator is great... it works really well. The only issue I have is it does not have an on/off you must unplug. For the price this is worth it... if you like to make energy bars etc you will need additional solid trays (it only has one in the set.)

  • Works better than I expected
    Verified Purchase

    I had a dehydrator several years ago but it was a pain to operate and clean. This unit is much better, holds more, easy to clean and actually can dry things faster than it claims. Very pleased with this purchase.
