I bought this dehydrator kit for my son as a gift. I found it so easy to use that I have been using it myself.

The actual drying unit is pretty straight forward. It swirls air inside the drying chamber to dry the meat product. It does this in an efficient and predictable manner. It is efficient because I know that almost every area of the inside chamber is covered by the airflow. It is predictable because of the use of the jerky gun. The jerky gun makes the meat the same size. Because of this the cooking times stay the same.

When I start, I prepare the meat as per the instructions. You are directed to take hamburger and add their dry mix. Combine the ingredients, and insert the meat in the jerky gun. The jerky comes out the same size every time. Add those pieces to the tray, and in two hours you have jerky. There is a small fan that makes a fairly substantial noise. I move the appliance to another room to avoid the sound.

I have learned that following the instructions will give you jerky that can be kept for some time with out spoiling. The objective here is to remove as much as the fat from the meat as possible. The fat is what will cause the meat to spoil quickly.

I have experimented with other ways to prepare the meat. I have bought roasts when they go on sale. I used a slicer once. I didn't like that way because the meat would not come out thin enough. If you have a very nice slicer this way might work.

I also tried cutting the meat with a knife. That was a pain too. It was a lot of work but the jerky came out more like what you might see in the stores, chunky. I don't think this type of jerky will stay fresh as long. There will be a substantial amount of fat left in the meat even after drying.

Bought this for my jerky enthusiast boyfriend for Christmas. We love it! We used the recipe using ground beef that comes in the booklet - used a pound, plus a chopped up jalapeno. The dehydrator and gun worked great - the jerky was done after about 5-6 hours in the dehydrator and we finished with an hour in the oven at 170.

The one thing I'd do differently is to use less of the spice and salt (cure) packet that came with the machine. He thought it was too salty.

Also, I'm an idiot and washed the gun on the lower shelf of the dishwasher and it melted. (I ordered a new one). Make sure you wash all the racks, the gun, and the bottom piece on the top shelf in the dishwasher. I did wash the gun attachments (the piece with the slit, and the round piece that screws over it) in the silverware compartment, bottom rack, with no problem.

Buy the next step up, spend $49 instead of this cheaper model, I have both models and the more expensive model takes less time and is better.

The person I gave this to loves this product. Works great and everything has tasted great too. Love that it comes with a Starter Kit for someone who might not know where to start.

This Dehydrator is amazing. I have made batches and batches of venison Jerky in it and it cooks fast. 7-8 hours per batch, Normally 24-36 hours in the oven. Amazing and would highly recommend it. Great price too!!!

I bought this item to make jerky for my pet - that way I know exactly what he is getting. I use it all the time, it is efficient, easy and a bargain at the price. I do not use the tube or grind up my meat... I slice it thinly and place it on the racks

Like many pet owners I got worried about buying chicken jerky made in China for my pet. So I bought this product and it does a great job. Now I'm making beef jerky for the family as well. Very pleased with the unit.
