Nesco FD-1040 Digital Dehydrator

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. Air pressure adjusts automatically to number of trays used. Measures 15.25" dia. x 10.25" high (with four trays.)

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 FD-1040 dehydrator features electronic control with timer.

  • “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

Patented Converga-Flow™ Design: The American Harvest FD1040 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.

This dehydrator includes: 4 drying trays, plus a stick-resistant poly mesh screen, plus a fruit leather/jerky sheet (solid poly sheet with upturned edges to prevent any spilling of liquids.) Also included is a  52 page recipe and instruction book.

  • “Very nice dehydrator, no problems, runs like a charm.”

    – John G., NY

    The trays have been updated but fit nicely on top of the others. Love the dehydrator too.

  • Love this Dehydrator

    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.

  • Works great!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    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.

  • More Than I Expected
    By on - Verified Buyer
    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.
