The FD-1040 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.

Top-mounted fan and heater are ideal for drying wetter foods. This design prevents liquids from ever dripping into the motor or heater. Makes cleanup easy!

  • “The American Harvest 1018 is a great machine for first time users. Love the stackable trays. It comes with a recipe book that was really handy. I would recommend for anyone looking to invest without spending a lot of money.”

    – Pat A., AR

Patented Converga-Flow™ Design: The American Harvest FD-1040 dehydrator's double outside wall design provides fresh air equally to every tray, eliminating tray rotation and flavor-sharing. Opaque Vita-Save exterior blocks light, preserving all the nutrients in your foods.
