My Rating: ****
Great little unit for those who do not dehydrate a lot of foods at a time! However, five 16 x 14 racks can hold quite a bit.
I find it best to have a "level" designated spot for the machine. Once filled, and set, leave it be. Removing the door lets the heat escape; so, you may not wish to do it, while dehydrating. Moving the unit, while the heating element is red hot can cause damage to your unit. Hot things tend to break more easily.
I suggest filling your machine up!
Dehydrating requires the same energy, whether you fill one rack, or all five.
Also, use parchment paper for those items that tend to stick!
Or, order Frogmats.
You may wish to plan on using a calibrated 12" temp gauge, as TSM's temperature dial is a little tricky to set. Anything shorter may not give you an accurate reading. Or, better yet, take a look at Maverick Industry's wireless remote systems. The gauge-probe inserts through a small hole in the front door panel. I do find the thermometer often snags on whatever is inside.
The rear SS panel, supporting the motor tends to vibrate-rattle when the unit is on. TSM should have used a heavier gauge SS for the rear. I found the noise so annoying, I reinforced the motor bracket with a piece of flat steel.
Yes, I'd purchased this product again! Order it!
You will be glad you did!
It's made in the USA and the company is easy to reach and very helpful.
It is well made and looks nice, very industrial looking, in a good way.
It dried the fruit evenly and the bananas and apples ended up having the perfect soft crunch.
The trays are sturdy and easy to clean.
I like that it has a timer, not all machines do.
The fan is not very loud at all. I have an open floor plan and we can watch a movie or do other things and the noise of the dehydrator doesn't interfere.
Things I don't like:
My biggest complaint is that the door sort of rattles from time to time as the heat kicks on and off. I found that if I just clipped the door to the frame at the bottom with two clothespins, that eliminated the excessive rattling noise.
Temperature settings don't match up with the reading of the thermometer that you can get to insert into the hole in the door.
Things I wish I'd known/had before or at the same time as getting the machine--the dehydrator was a gift and I wasn't able to use it right away because I needed the following things to get started:
I HIGHLY recommend finding a thermometer that fits in the small hole. Though there is a guide on the machine showing which temperature to use for what you are trying to dehydrate, it's not very accurate and I had success my first time using it because I had a thermometer showing the interior temperature. I live in France and was able to find one online here, so I'm sure there are plenty of options in the States.
I recommend getting a good Dehydrating book--I really like the Dehydrator Bible.
I also recommend getting the sheets so that you can make fruit leather. The leather sheets can also be used for drying small things that would otherwise fall through the holes in the racks.
I laid some parchment paper on the very bottom of the machine so that if anything falls or drips, clean up will be very easy. When I dried the fruit, I oiled the racks. I found that to be especially wise for the bananas as they would have stuck without it. I soaked the banana and apple slices in lemon juice for 10 minutes as directed in the book I got (1/4 cup lemon juice and 2 cups water). It worked very well to keep the fruit from turning very brown. I am sure I will figure out a lot more things as I use it more, but I feel like it was money well spent and it's been going non-stop every since I got all the things I needed to get it started. I'm very happy to be able to provide healthy snacks for my kids and do some food preserving and storage. It is definitely more expensive than a lot of the dehydrators out there but you get what you pay for. A good investment and was a great gift, thanks hubby!
