Rated 2 out of 5Â by excitementsquashed My excitement was squashed
I always read reviews before buying a product like this and was excited to try this thinking it would open up a whole new facet of food storage for me. I "thought" this would be quicker and more effective then doing it in the oven but I was wrong and VERY disappointed to find that 9.5 hours later (according to the manual instructions# my sliced apples, bananas and sweet potato still were not dehydrated fully. It's going back to the store today :#

I love this and it was fully worth my money. It dries everything quick and some even quicker than the book says. My daughter is a very picky fruit eater and I had some dried banana chips and all of a sudden started putting it to her I was amazed. I than dried some strawberries and she liked those as well. I decided to do the fruit roll ups and she loved those best I was amazed at what this product could do. Also having the gun is awesome it makes jerky so well, quicker, and is a cheaper way to do it using healthier meats. everything this includes has been amazing and we are beyond pleased with this product.

This does what it says and does it quietly and efficiently. I have had it for over a month and have used it nearly EVERY single day. Except those when it needed some cleaning (fruit leathers can be a bit messy). I have dried onions, mushrooms, herbs, tomatoes, bread crumbs, apples, peppers, mangos, even water melon (not yummy BTW), and the ideas just seem endless! It opens your mind to a whole new world of food prep and you really stretch your imagination. Husband though it's be a passing phase, but nope, I just keep right on drying!!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Aquaspirit This product is fun to use.
I was expecting something big and heavy. It is actually light weight and I am having fun trying different "medium". I have made jerky for a family member. The homemade raisins, dried apples and dried tomatoes are incredible. I want to try fruit rolls and dried herbs. The instructions say that you don't have to rotate the trays. But, I found that rotating works better. I only wish the instruction book that came with it was a little more detailed especially with drying meats. But the book is still pretty good anyway.
