I have had 6 different dehydrators over the last 20 years. This model (Nesco American Harvest 400 watt) works well, but if you are going to use it a lot I recommend spending a bit more money to get one of the other Nesco models. The fan on this model is fairly loud and after time the heat started melting the inner portions of the trays. I now have the square model from Nesco and it was worth the extra money. The trays have more surface area, the fan is much quieter, you can adjust the temperature and the heating unit doesn't go down the center of the trays so they don't get as hot and don't melt.

I basically got this for drying herbs. People said it was loud, so I was kind of hesitant of buying it, but I'm glad I did. It's not loud and dries my herbs in about an hour.......

I love this product!
I bought this and the add-a-tray set for it, with or without the two extra trays within 12-15 hours I have dried fruit chips and great beef jerky.So far I've done 5 pounds of beef into jerky in one batch.I used a non-alcohol marinade of zesty italian dressing with added pepper, soy sauce, worchestershire sauce, and dried herbs on beef round and beef tip steak strips.I could have used far more pepper as I like zingy jerky, but even so the 5 pounds is going fast, it added up dried to enough jerky to fill half a gallon plastic zippy bag.For the fruits I used 1 TBSP Fruit Fresh to 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup water in a gallon plastic bag to pre-marinade the sliced fruit for 10 min. or less.I simply sliced bananas into chips and dropped in bag until I had finished 3-4 whole bananas then I placed each slice flat on trays till they were covered in 1 layer. I used the same recipe for every fruit. Blue berries I pre-treated by putting them in colander and dropping it into boiling water for 1-2 min. then ran under cold water to chill, I wished I had dropped them into ice water it would have worked better, or sliced the fat ones in half. they went into dehydrator for 15 hours but only the smaller ones really dried well, so I keep them stored in freezer til use to keep from spoilage, cutting the large ones in half they all would have dried well enough to be stored in bags or jars at room temp. The peaches and strawberries I cut into slices about 1/8-2/8ths inch thick dropped them into marinade bag and then onto trays 1 slice thick.I rotate trays at the 4 hr and 8 hr times so everything gets dried faster. I switch top trays to bottom and on up so botto tray becomes new top tray at 4 hrs. At 8 hr switch I consolidate the 4 driest trays down to 2 and put them on the bottom.

I just received my dehydrator and dried my first batch of fruits. I have to say a lot of the reviews are too critical or even wrong. Is it a little noisy? Yea, about the same noise you'd get from a box fan, but its a food dehydrator not a sleep machine, put it in another room and its fine. Does it get a little warm? Yea, but again, its a food dehydrator, not a refrigerator. Does it take too long to dry foods? Absolutely NOT. I was expecting it to take forever from the reviews I read and the length of time given in the manual but it dried my mangoes and kiwis more than twice as fast as it said. I left it on over night (11 hours) as the manual said it would take 10-18 for my fruits and people complained it takes too long but it didn't take nearly as long! After 5 hours the fruit was almost completely dry, but I left it on anyway to see what would happen. Now I have mango chips instead of dried mango, this thing dries fast! It's simple to use and great for the price.

***UPDATE*****
I had to come back and update my review after my dehydrator broke. Randomly while drying some fruit leather it just went kaputt with no warning. I had been using it maybe 3 days a week for no more than 12 hours each time for just 1 week and now it's dead! Bad craftsmanship. Don't get it.

Hi Folks I rcently had bought the Ronco dehydrator and I liked it except it wound up overheating and melting the trays so I returned it and bought this Nesco unit. Well I'll say this - there is a world of difference in workmanship. This is just great. I just ordered the 2 tray expansion and the Nesco Jerky Gun . I would recommend this product because of the quality and many years of experience Nesco has of making Dehydrators.

Bought this thing in May, used it 5 or 6 times over the course of a month. Tried to use it a week later and it ran for 20 minutes, shut off, and now it's fried and won't turn back on. Spend money on a better model, this thing is a peice of garbage and is not built to last. Also, after 30 days neither Amazon nor Nesco the manufacturer will do anything about it - wasted money down the drain.

With the rising cost of food in general, and huge leaps in the price of dried fruits, I ordered the Nesco American Harvest FD-37 400 Watt Food Dehydrator to take advantage of in-season sales now on fruits for dried fruits later, at holiday baking time. I'm not entirely new to dehydrating fruits, as I've done it for years in a low oven on cookie sheets. This machine, I felt, would enable me to dry bigger batches.

Since I am new to using a dehydrator machine, I wasn't sure what to expect. I read the reviews here at Amazon and was hopeful. It's running on my kitchen counter right now (with a batch of sliced red plums), and I have to agree with reviewers who have complained about the noise level. It sounds almost identical to stove or bathroom exhaust fans. Not ear-drum splitting, yet loud enough. I'd also agree with those reviewers concerned by how hot the machine gets. It'd be worrying to allow it to run overnight while you're sleeping, because at least mine gets pretty toasty to the touch. Someone in my family turned it off in last night after I'd fallen asleep.

Overall, I'd say it's just okay. I can use it during the day since I work from home. Not sure If I'll return it. Others have said theirs isn't as loud, so maybe I just got a not-so-great one? The heat is more of a concern on a wooden, butcher block counter. Glad I didn't order the 700 Watt one!
