The FD1040 American Harvest/Nesco dehydrator comes with 4 trays, each 1 sq. foot, expandable to 20 trays for large 20 square feet of food drying area! Combination of large, quiet, 4.5" fan, 2400 rpm motor and 1000 watt heater lets you dry food gently in hours instead of days. Temperature is adjustable between 95° and 160° F.

The trays have been updated but fit nicely on top of the others. Love the dehydrator too.Was this review helpful to you?
Have been using this product for years and expanded it a few years ago with more trays. I use it primarily for drying sprouted wheat berries.Was this review helpful to you?
Basically wanted it to dehydrate nuts that were soaked in a sea salt solution and it works fine. I do need purchase some more trays and some mesh liners. Some of the nuts fall in between the regular tray bottoms, so I line with parchment paper, don't know that that is ok, but works. Next order, I'm adding on some 2 more trays and 4 mesh liners.Was this review helpful to you?
I've been using this dehydrator for over a year and it far exceeds my expectations. I've dried tomatoes, celery, peppers, apples, peaches, squash, zucchini, flowers, carrots and anything else I can think of. My only regret is that I have not ordered additional trays.Was this review helpful to you?
