“This dehydrator does everything I want it to. Experimenting with sprouted grains, fruit leathers, and can't wait to see what it does with a belly full of chiles. Why did I wait so long?”
– Russel G., KS

By De Anne H. in IL on 5/11/2016 - Verified BuyerThe trays have been updated but fit nicely on top of the others. Love the dehydrator too.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By David S. in Gilroy, CA on 4/12/2016 - Verified BuyerHave 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.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Sandy M. in MO on 4/12/2016 - Verified BuyerBasically 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.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Laurel M. in TX on 4/11/2016 - Verified BuyerI'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.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
