Customer Reviews

The plastic trays melt.
Elizabeth Baskett
After 5 calls to Ronco's customer service, they finally told me that I could "replace" the trays but I had to purchase them.
Avid Photographer
The worst part is that this dehydrator worked only for two weeks and I only used it 6 times.

I bought the previous model of this dehydrator. I seriously would not even give this machine 1 star, but there is no lower rating. I bought mine a year ago, used it once, and the bottom heating element burned every single tray that I rotated to the bottom, which you have to do in order to get anywhere. The entire machine was worthless within a week of me owning it. I did eat the beef jerky, but that was the most expensive jerky I will ever make! I called immediately to complain, talked to a guy named Saul, who said the unit must be defective, DUH! and he would send me a new unit and a return authorization. I have gotten neither, I am just out the money. I have called back, faxed, mailed, waited on hold, and finally decided that Ronco products are CRAP. I will never give him or his company another cent. Buyers please research your purchases, I see from other reviews that I am not the only one with a complaint. Buy a different machine!

Verified Purchase
I was in the market for a dehydrator to make fruit leathers for my kids who are sensitive to red dye 40. This is an ingredient found in all of the fruit snacks in our grocery store. I ordered this one and when it arrived I was seriously disappointed. Construction was subpar and the fact it is a passive dehydrator meant it required an extraordinary amount of time to process the foods we wanted dried. It also required rotation of the trays, something I did not like. I immediately returned it and ordered the Nesco American Harvest FD75PR with the fan in the lid and the powerful 700 watt heating system. I highly recommend passing on the Ronco unit and spend a little more on the Nesco. I wish I had (could have saved on shipping).

To be quite honest, I am glad this is my first Ronco purchase (as opposed to spending $150 or so on the Showtime Rotisseire or more on another Ronco product). After inspecting first hand the (lack of) quality this device exhibits, this will not only be my first Ronco purchase, but my last as well. I will be ordering the Nesco American Harvest FD-75PR 700-Watt Food Dehydrator tomorrow (a friend owns one, raves about it, and I have seen the difference in quality first hand).

The Ronco Food Dehydrator
The Good:
It actually does dehydrate--we've mostly made jerky, and with 1/4" slices of meat on four trays, it takes about 30 hours to dry.

The Bad:
You need to rotate the trays for "semi-even" drying (emphasis on "semi").
Takes a long time to dry anything.

The Severely Ugly:
Brittle plastic trays. I've seen thicker plastic on drink straws!
Although it takes forever to dry a batch of jerky, you'll spend twice as long trying to clean this thing after you're done.

My advice is to spend a little more money for alot more quality--Nesco seems to be the way to go with food dehydrators, and I will update my review here with a comparison of the model (FD-75PR) I am purchasing tomorrow.

***EDIT*** (9/22/2008)

I purchased the Nesco American Harvest FD-75PR 700-Watt Food Dehydrator and . . . WOW, what a difference!

As with any Ronco product, it is very cheaply made, with seemingly nothing more than mass-production and profit margins as the basis. Fruit on the bottom tray will be brittle by the time fruit on the top trays are ready. If you like rotating trays and waiting a very long for dried fruit and jerky, then buy this dehydrator, and plan on buying it a few times. If not, then buy one by Nesco American Harvest. I have learned twice to stay away from Ronco products. Once with this and once with the Showtime Rotisserie.

I bought this for my husband because he's always wanted one to make beef jerky, and we love it. It takes about 1 day and a half to make the jerky and he is always experimenting with different seasonings. It's super easy to use and super quiet too. We have a three year old daughter who loves the dried bananas and apples we make. I love it because the dried fruit can last months and is great to take on long trips or for snacks. I searched and searched for the right one for the right price and amazon provided it. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who likes dried food.

I've used this product about a dozen or so times and I guess it did what it was supposed to do. But the element clips have broken of the bottom and burned a hole in the unit. It does take a long time to dry food, due to the passive heat operation. Even as a starter dehydrator I would probably pass on this and try a Nesco model. I received this unit as a gift, and it did help me determine if i would use it enough to buy a better unit though.

I purchased this dehydrator because it was cheaper AND ronco. It sucks. I've gotten my $40 worth of use of it though.
Within the first 3 uses 1 tray broke. I've had it less than 6 months now, used it maybe 6 times, and all of the trays are broken in some way. The heating element has broken off its plastic clips, and even melted part of the dehydrator. Do yourself a favor and buy a more expensive, durable item. This would be great for someone who only plans on using it once, or only occasionally, but if you plan on making your food on a regular basis, its not worth the money. I plan on replacing it soon, I'll have to, my trays won't be able to take another 1 or 2 uses.
