This was a great buy. Price isn’t high, but value is top shelf! I like the two ways to stack the shelves, and you can use different configurations. I made some pemmican, and used the dehydrator for the meat portion. The dehydration called for extra lean grass fed beef that h ad to be cut like jerky, but even dryer (yeah really), and at a very low temperature to save the nutritional value. That and the timer combination worked out exactly as I needed. Pemmican is the meat chopped up very fine and mixed with tallow from grass fed beef. Tastes like sawdust but the point of it is to pack in nutrition that doesn’t need special storage. This product worked awesome for this.
