Product Description

Color: White

Today's consumers lead eco-aware lifestyles. That includes making nutritious foods and snacks with efforts towards sustainability. And they're doing it with powerful Nesco/American harvest dehydrators. Call them the "green" machines. Now you can save money by making your own jerky, dried fruits, vegetable, trail mix and more. It means that you are not buying those foods in-store, with packages that end up in the landfills. That is sustainability; perfect for the times. Nesco builds the world's fastest, most even drying dehydrators. The Nesco FD-60 snackmaster express is sleek, contemporary design featuring top mounted fan and 500-watt of drying power for maximum speed and quality in dehydrating fruits, vegetables and jerky. Helps dry food in hours - not days like ordinary food dehydrators. It's patented converge-flow drying system forces air down the exterior pressurized chamber (not through the trays). The hot air is forced horizontally across each individual tray, converging in the core for fast, even and nutritious drying. No flavor mixing and no need to rotate trays. The adjustable thermostat allows user to dry different foods at the proper temperatures. Thermostat range of 95-to-155-degree Fahrenheit provides the flexibility to produce the best drying results. With the opaque vita-save exterior that helps block harmful light which destroys nutritional content of food being dehydrated. The FD-60 is packed with 4 trays, but is expandable to 12 trays. Includes fruit roll sheet and 2 original flavor jerky spice and cure packets.

Color: White
I have had my dehydrator for almost two years. I use it heavily (3-4 times a week) during harvest season and about once a month during the rest of the year.

I dry/cook a variety of items in my dehydrator. Granola bars, fruit leather, jerky, dried fruit and veggies. I love that I can adjust the temperature. The fan makes it dry the foods much faster than my old Ronco brand unit.

Jerky takes about 9 hours, apples take about 12, fruit leather (at my house) is never consistent in drying time because I just pour in as much puree as I want without weighing or measuring. This is a way easier method for making fruit leather than using the oven.

I bought 4 extra trays and extra fruit roll inserts. I also have a silicone insert for each of my trays. I have never dried anything directly on the plastic tray so I don't know if the dried fruits/veggies come off easily.

I DO NOT recommend ever dehydrating onions or garlic. They are very cheap to buy already done. The smell is very hard to get out of your house and it seems to stay in the plastic forever.

I grow, literally, 50 or so different varieties of herbs of all sorts, from the common place to the exotic. Drying them was always a process, and I always seemed to lose them to mold, mildew, or those that I kept were brown and unattractive looking. Then, as a gift, my husband bought me this dehydrator because he was told it'd dry herbs.

This little gadget has turned into just about the most important gadget I have in my kitchen. It's practically in-use everyday from May to November, dehydrating everything from my precious herbs, to apples, tomatoes, jerky, and all manner of fruit and flower. This dehydrator has literally saved me hundreds of dollars, not only because I can make my own jerky, fruit roll-ups, and dried fruits for everything from trail mix to healthy snacks, but because vegetables from the garden that were left to rot because we couldn't otherwise keep them (and there wasn't enough to can) are now being saved, and every last one of my herbs, even some which didn't take to being dried the "traditional way," are easily preserved. I can even buy in-season fruits and veggies in bulk and dehydrate them, saving me even more money!

This gadget dries everything very quickly and efficiently, so everything really retains its color. I've found myself drying everything from rose petals to bee balm flowers (and all sorts of other flowers that couldn't previously be dried) for use in sachets, potpourri, and carpet deodorizers. My red and purple rose petals stay red and purple, and my herbs keep their emerald-green color, something I'd never keep with conventional drying. I'm really impressed that a dehydrator that is gentle enough to dry herbs is also rugged enough to make jerky and apple chips.

I read an article with food dehydrator recipes in Vegetarian Times magazine and got the impulse to buy a food dehydrator. Without doing a lot of research, I settled on this model. I have not owned a food dehydrator before, so I can't compare it to other models. I am generally quite happy with it, though, and able to tell you what works and what doesn't (for me).

First, the reasons I took off a star:

A) 1/2 for not having an on/off switch. As you might expect, items placed closer to the top part, which contains the heating element and the fan, dry faster than items placed at the bottom. You have to remove the top part to switch the trays around, and you have to just directly unplug the dehydrator from the wall during the tray rotation process because there's no off switch.

B) 1/2 for being difficult to clean. The trays are just big enough that they don't fit flat in my kitchen sink. One of the things I dry frequently is kale (more on that later) and the trays really need a good scrubbing and/or soaking after that. It's a bit difficult to do that when I can't lay them in the sink. (I am pretty sure my sink is a standard size.)

I didn't take off any stars for this next thing, but be forewarned that if you live in a small space, the smell of what you are dehydrating will permeate the space. This is not usually a problem for fruit, but some vegetables can stink. (I tried to dry onions once...) Also, for what it's worth, this dehydrator takes up a big chunk of counter space while in use. It also tends to warm up the kitchen a little (which can be nice on a winter day).

I love my new Nesco FD-60 dehydrator. My first month I probably spent $300 in fruit and meat trying all sorts of recipes and fruit-roll mixture.
However I recommend buying from Walmart. Their price is about $45. Also, I wouldn't recommend buying expansion trays because 4 trays cost about $30 but a new dehydrator for $45 includes 4 trays and a fruit roll sheet (>$4 value)plus the usefullness of a backup or second dehydtation unit.
That aside, beef jerky, dried fruits and homemade fruit rolls are wonderful and easy with this unit. Much better IMHO than using the oven (safer, faster, more cost effiecient).
