The construction and quality of the parts on this dehydrator are excellent. I think it is probably sturdy enough to last for several years and hundreds of uses. However, it does have two very big flaws... no timer and no ability to set the dehydrating temperature. After researching several websites on proper dehydrating techniques, I have discovered that temperature is very important. If set too high, the dehydrator could ruin some of your foods. This dehydrator has only one temperature. And since it does not have a timer to turn the apparatus off, you will have to monitor the dehydrator yourself.

I returned the one I purchased to Amazon after discovering this flaw and am upgrading to Presto model 06301... it has both a timer and a thermostat ranging from 90F to 160F. The cost of 06301 is $23.00 more but well worth the extra dollars spent.

If money is a factor, your personal time (to monitor the dehydrator) does not matter, and making jerky is your only interest, then this might work for you. However, if you want to dry beer hops cones and other herbs as I do, you need something with a temperature setting around 95F.

Read previous reviews, and figured for $35, couldn't go wrong.

This little machine makes *amazing* dried fruits and vegetables. I ordered the slick sheets and extra trays.

The noise is not an issue...it's not hair dryer loud, but it's not ceiling fan quiet. It takes far less time to dry things than the manual shows.

-Banana chips - about 4 hours.
-Tomatoes - about 3 hours.
-Pears/Apples - about 1 hour.

We've used canned apricots, cherries and even pineapple. Everything came out great. We've used applesauce and canned fruits to make puree for roll-ups. We've used it to dry vegetables for easy instant soup stock.

This product exceeded my expectations, and with all the accessories we purchased, was less expensive than some of the fancier dehydrators.

Features:
Base unit is easily cleaned, trays stack nested and clear sturdy lid fits on top.
The trays are top rack safe and can be used immediately without to much cleaning for the same food.
The cord stores in the unit.
The noise is tolerable...place it away from your traffic area, we mostly run it at night, which is more than enough time to dehydrate anything.

Some options I picked up:

I wasn't sure there would be enough things to do with this dehydrator even though I planned to dehydrate the over abundance of apples and tomatoes from our yard. well, a quick google, and I have a list of more things than I ever expected I could do with this! There are also a ton of good books out there for unique ideas. (salt clay ornaments for the x-mas tree). I found a recipe for corn chips (grind/process frozen corn, add cheese, chili powder, onion, whatever you want and spread on the "fruit leather" tray. No preservatives!) There are also tons of dehydrator granola recipes too. My freezer is going to be full! Instead of an expensive vacuum system, I opted for the $4.00 Ziplock pump system and it's terrific.Ziploc Vacuum Starter Kit, 3-Quart Bags, 1-Pump

This dehydrator couldn't be easier to use. The included booklet is surprisingly detailed. From jerky to fruit leathers and fruits and vegetables, every aspect of how to properly dry everything is covered. Pretreatments with lemon juice or fruit fresh are recommended for some fruits to prevent browning, and blanching or steaming for a couple minutes is recommended for most vegetables. The drying times are extremely variable, as expected, depending on how thin or thick you have cut the fruit or vegetable. A food processor, salad shooter, or some other of this type of cutting devise would ensure standardized, uniform pieces. My wish-for Christmas gift is a Saladmaster!

From dehydrating books I have learned that the temperatures are not that critical either. I was concerned about getting this dehydrator as there is no temperature adjustment possible, but frankly for the price and all the good reviews I figured I couldn't go wrong.

I bought one of these to use primarily for making jerky and it is excellent. Fairly easy to clean and isn't quite as loud as other dehydrators. Makes the house smell nice when its operating.

This unit is excellent for the price. I've used it several times to make beef jerky. It's easy to use, easy to clean and takes up less room in my pantry cabinet to store because the trays are stackable. Great product from Presto.
