I have a different style of dehydrator made specifically for jerky but I wanted to be able to dehydrate other items. This dehydrator was much bigger than expected. Much bigger! You can dehydrate a lot in this machine. It seems easy to use and has a good variation on temperature control. I think I’ll keep using my other machine for jerky only because this one seems a little more difficult to clean that that one.
I am surprised this doesn’t have a slide out tray on the bottom for easy clean up. But, using this for fruits and vegetables is going to be great! This will hold quite a lot and will reduce the number of times you need to use it. It comes with everything needed to dehydrate fruits or vegetables, except the product itself.
My only concern is it is large, as I said, and I’m not sure when I’ll be able to store it. Right now it’s sitting on my dining room table.
