Product Description

Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging

Dry fruit, vegetables, and jerky in hours instead of days. The unit's patented Converga-Flow drying system forces air down the exterior pressurized chamber, then horizontally across each individual tray, converging in the center, for fast, even, and nutritious drying. Flavors don't mix, and there's no need to rotate the trays. It's top-mounted fan eliminates the worry of liquids dripping into the heater chamber, and an opaque Vita-Save exterior helps block harmful lights in order to retain more of the food's nutrients and vitamins during the drying process. The unit's adjustable thermostat ranged from 95 degrees to 160 degrees F, providing the flexibility needed to ensure excellent results. It's a 600 watts unit. Five trays come included, but the unit can be expanded to 12 trays (additional trays sold separately) for drying larger quantities at one time. Accessories include two fruit roll sheets, perfect for drying semi-liquids like soups, sauces, and fruit rolls; two Clean-A-Screen flexible screens, which allow for easy drying of small items such as herbs, spices and potpourri; and three original jerky spice packets for making jerky. A 52-page recipe and instruction book also comes included. With a speckled gray design, the food dehydrator measures approximately 13-inch by 13-inch by 10-inch. FD-75A is Frustration free packaging and FD-75PR is retail packaging.

I imported this Nesco 75PR dehydrator to Brazil, so I can tell you how it behaves in very humid climates like we have here, where we get normally 90% air humidity, specially in the summer. I bought a power consumption measuring device to attach between the dehydrator and my power source to check how much power it drains. I guess this data possibly may interest you. Many people say the power consumption is not high, but how high/low it is? I have done some tests and I think I have the answer for different situations. Energy in Brazil is not cheap so this is an important topic for us to discuss. And, of course, nobody likes to shred money and the environment, regardless of energy taxes.

First, lets talk about performance:

Only in a few ocasions I could dry something with less than 12 hours using a moderate temperature and thin slices. This is why I give this product a 4 instead of a 5 stars. But a 4,5 or 4,7 stars would be more fair, since this dehydrator has a lot of good points and we live in a very humid area, in the sea coast. And, the manual covers the "worst drying period possible" as being coincident to ours. In other words, they are not lying when they affirm that something can dry between "6 and 18 hours". We sit right in the 18 hours extreme. Be aware that this may be your case. Evaluate this point before buying a unit. Fruits: unsliced bananas can take 24-30 hours to dry to a flexible texture (we call this "banana passa" in Brazil, that are made in an industrial scale using gas dehydrators and constant 70 Celsius). The drying temperature is between 60 and 70 Celsius. Thin apple slices can take between 12 and 18 hours to get a leathery texture.

I bought this dehydrator sort of like many people did: after reading the things you can do with it, I got all excited, thinking, "I'm going to dehydrate EVERYTHING and it's going to be amazing!!!" Of course, in reality that doesn't really happen. When people say you'll use it for a while and then it will collect dust, I totally get how that could happen. Fingers crossed, it hasn't happened to me yet.

So, from my point of view, I see a number of excellent things about this dehydrator and one main problem. Let's start with the good stuff.

So far, I've used the dehydrator to make a couple of batches of each of:

- Apple chips (thin apple slices soaked for a few hours in a combo of lemon juice and cranberry juice, then dried)
- beef jerky (this dehydrator comes with a starter park for jerky, plus I made my own marinade the next time)
- chicken jerky
- bacon bits (the ends and "bad cuts" of my own home-cured, smoked bacon, finely chopped, cooked, and then dehydrated. best bacon bits you will EVER taste)
- sweet potato dog treats (just sweet potatoes sliced lengthwise and dehydrated. Healthy, and she goes NUTS for them)
- chicken jerky dog treats (regular, inexpensive frozen chicken breast cut into strips and dehydrated, she goes nuts for those too).

The jerky is better than the packaged stuff by a pretty wide margin. There are all sorts of ways to modify it to suit your tastes, of course. My wife didn't care for the fruit dehydration at first because she was expecting crunchy apple chips like you can get at the store. They don't come out like that. They're still pliable and soft.

I found the ease of use and the design of the Nesco FD-75A dehydrator to be pretty high. I was able to make a batch of thicker cut jerky after 6-7 hours of use. The temperature setting is easy to use and the top of the machine has common dehydrating temps listed for various items. The folding handle on the top of the machine makes it convenient to open the machine and see what's going on; it folds down as well.

My main issue and the reason why this review nets 2 stars is that I had one tray warp substantially during the dehydrating cycle (first time using the machine). This isn't from washing in a hot dish washer, this is from just using the machine. The warped tray is now concave (dips down towards the middle) and now it rests on the center column of the tray below it. What that means is that there is now a substantial air gap between the edges of the trays. I have photos up as well of this issue.

Great to see this hasn't happened to everyone however, it's an issue that's cropped up on myself.

About 5 months ago i purchased this dehydrator and loved it , however after only 5 months it stopped working. although i understand things break early occasionally , i was horrified about their return policy. after i told them i bought it on amazon their attitude changed and they got nasty and tried to make me jump through hoops to return their defective product ! i will not buy anything from nesco again and amazon should demand better treatment of their customers or drop their products!!!

Happiness is a house that smells like baking apples! I have access to all kinds of produce but we often can't eat it all before it goes off. We have a funky fuji apple tree, grapes, and pomegranates in the yard.

It does suck up a lot of electricity: 600w for up to 20 hours! ( the reason I gave it 4/5 stars)

The unit can manage up to 12 trays- you will need to buy four extra to max out.

Thoughtful design of drying trays and screens.
