Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 18. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 17 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!

Nesco FD-60 Dehydrator

The FD-60 American Harvest/Nesco Snackmaster Express features 500 watts of drying power that generates maximum speed and quality for dehydrating fruits, vegetables, beef jerky, and venison jerky. Comes with 4 trays, each nearly 1 sq. foot, expandable to 12 trays for nearly 12 square feet of food drying area. The FD-60's combination of a large, quiet fan and 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 13.5" dia. x 10.25" high (with four trays.) The FD-60 comes in a white finish.

Top-Mounted Fan & Heater: Ideal for drying wetter foods, the top-mounted 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-60 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.

Included with American Harvest/Nesco dehydrator: 4 drying trays, plus a fruit leather/jerky sheet (solid poly sheet with upturned edges to prevent any spilling of liquids) and two original jerky spice packs. Also included is a 52 page recipe and instruction book.

Food contact parts of the American Harvest/Nesco dehydrator are dishwasher safe and BPA-free.

    I'm a first time dehydrator owner and decided on this one because of the top mount fan and heater. Seems to be a well made USA product which is a plus. Bought this as my summer garden was phasing out so only dehydrated tomatoes and basil and it did a wonderful job. Seemed to take a couple of hours longer than the directions suggested and that's the only reason for 4 stars which is no biggie. This fall I also dehydrated apples to put in my saddle bags while trail riding and they turned out great. Next year I will start as soon as my vegetables are ripe. I phoned to place my order and it was extremely nice to have a pleasant, helpful person on the other end that spoke clear English! I also promptly received my order which was a plus. I would definitely recommend ordering from Pleasant Hill Grain.

  • Love Love Love it. I can`t say enough about it.

    I love it. Dried some pears, did a wonderful job. Cannot wait to try veggies &other fruits. Quiet motor, my other dehydrator was loud, but was not a Nesco. Looking forward to trying some meats. Love Love Love it. I have dried so many things such as, broccoli, peaches, Parsley, figs, Leeks, & more. It helps to cut waste, from leftover fresh veggies, & saves money. You have items on hand when you need them without going to the store.

    This replaced my old American harvest dehydrator, works with all my old trays and gets to the 160 degree point quickly and maintains it well. Great for the price too!!

    I ordered my new dehydrator from Pleasant Hill Grain and could not be happier. The dehydrator works perfectly and their service is top notch - free shipping and it arrived in 2-3 days from across the country!

  • Very Nice Dehydrator
    By on - Verified Buyer
    My daughter is delighted with this Nesco Dehydrator I sent her. It's attractive and works well. Also the customer service is outstanding. A representative called me after I placed the order online to be sure I was ordering it (and not a fraud) since it was being shipped to a different address from my billing address. I appreciated that extra effort.

  • A great, dependable dehydrator
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We bought one of these many years ago and it finally quit. I was so surprised and happy to see they still made this exact dehydrator! It is a good price, had free shipping, arrived in a few days and I couldn’t be more pleased with it.

    I had one, and needed another, the trays are enter-changeable as they are both the same model, I am very pleased. Just awaiting the back ordered two extra trays.
