Nesco FD-80 Dehydrator

The FD-80 comes with 4 trays, each 1.36 sq. foot, expandable to 8 trays for nearly 11 square feet of food drying area. The FD-80's combination of a strong, quiet fan and 700 watt heater lets you dry food gently in hours instead of days. Temperature is adjustable between 95° and 155° F. Air pressure adjusts automatically to number of trays used. Measures 14.5" x 14.5" x 9.6" high (with four trays.) The FD-80 comes in a new "Marbled Gray" finish (white with gray flecks.)

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 trays, the nonstick accessories have been through my dishwasher countless times. It's never skipped a beat and I'm so glad I didn't spend more money for no reason. Highly recommended.”

    – Ricard K., TX

Patented Converga-Flow™ Design: The American Harvest FD-80 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 mesh screen, plus 2 original and 2 cracked pepper & garlic jerky spice packs (enough seasoning for 4 pounds of meat). 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.

  • Chicken jerky
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Use the dehydrator to make chicken jerky treats for my dog CoCo, she is a border collie. USA produced treats are very expensive, about $18 a pound. I don't trust foreign made dog food or treats. I can make about 3.5 pounds for about $12. I make four trays in about sx hours, the Nesco FD 80 does a great job, have used it eight times, the money saved has paid for unit.

  • Still Working Perfectly!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I purchased this Nesco back in 2012 to replace a similar Nesco that was round. I can't estimate the total number of cycles of dehydration that I've done with it. It lives in my utility room where the squared sides save space. The trays, the nonstick accessories have been through my dishwasher countless times. It's never skipped a beat and I'm so glad I didn't spend more money for no reason. People don't seem to realize that these are indeed built here in the U.S. if that's important to some. This is the third Nesco I've owned over 30+ years, and both the others still work perfectly, also. Highly recommended.

  • Ultralight Backpacker Reborn
    By on - Verified Buyer
    For years food was a necessary evil.. and heavy. Now, I enjoy the anticipation.

    The FD-80 has done the job for me. Canned chicken, Corned beef, Ham lunch meat, Shrimp and white fish plus a variety of fruits and vegetables make super light and tasty meals. Better than the commercial options in every way (cost, flavor and nutrition). Include a couple of mesh sheets right away.

  • Great compact unit
    By on - Verified Buyer
    It's a little slower than I like (30 hours+ to do a bunch of grapes), but it does a fantastic job of it.

  • Outstanding Service!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Machine worked better than previous buys. So pleased with purchase. An outstanding feature is how quiet it is! Pleasant Hill Grain did a knockout job on delivery. Ordered on a Friday....had item in my possession following Monday! Very very few companies do such an outstanding job as PHG. this was on a REGULAR shipping... no 2-3 day delivery. Very few companies do outstanding work like Pleasant Hill. Would order from these people in a hesitation.

    We received the the book....... prepared some beef strips/marinated..........into the unit and presto, it was done and it is good. Now I have snacks for golfing and fishing, so how much better can it get.
