      1st dehydrating machine ever bought & love it. Have truckloads of produce and fruit from the backyard and never knew what to do with all that food. I love how there is no clean up after the food is dehydrated, as it just “pops” up from the plastic mesh. And the machine is so simple to use. It comes with a booklet with suggested temperature and number of hours. I’m glad I didn’t splurge for the timer, which significantly increased the price of the machine. Good chance it will be on for about 12 hours, and I can plan ahead to be home when it’s about done. Plus I realize now there is no “set” time when it’s done as it depends on preference. Made some half dehydrated raisins, so delicious like in fancy restaurants; it won’t stay long on the shelf, but very interesting in food texture as it was the juiciest raisins ever. I bought Excalibur silicone sheets (sold separately) for all the trays, which has been fantastic with fruit roll ups and over-ripe fruit. Glad I opt out on the timer and splurged on the silicone sheets instead. There are cheap versions of Excalibur’s silicone sheets, but am afraid the cheap stuff may leave chemicals in the food. After all, this dehydrator makes the healthiest food ever. Family is addicted to the apple chips (nothing added, just slice and put in machine).

      We bought this dehydrator after looking at reviews from many sources and we are glad that we picked this one. The instructions are well written and useful. Clean up is easy. Drying space is plenty big enough and easily accessed. Our experience has shown that it distributes the drying effect evenly throughout the racks. It isn't very loud, (about twice the sound of our computer cooling fan), and the timer function makes this machine one that you fill, turn on and walk away until it's done. What could be easier? Like most people, we were concerned about spending this much on our first dehydrator. We knew there would be a steep learning curve to go along with this process and didn't know if we would like the whole process of dehydrating food. However, we have known people who have bought cheaper brands and got so frustrated by the uneven drying, the small space and the constant checking of the product that they were unsatisfied and quit dehydrating food. Spending the extra dollars for a good quality dehydrator is key to starting you on the road to success with this process.

      I visited a friend and the the four drawer drying some figs in the garage. I tasted them and the mango, great. So we bought the 9 drawer. We had been talking to a neighbor anyway about dehydrating. My son and I immediately wanted to make jerkey. We followed Franklins's in Austin video instructions - smoke the meet on low for few hours, then dehydrate. Instead of just black pepper and kosher salt, I added some white pepper and cayenne. We opened the finished jerky at ping pong night in a garage. To my surprise, it wasn't good, it was great. Even the neighbor teenager said it was excellent. The local texas folks said it was terrific. The unit will hold a lot of contents. It is easy to clean. The construction looks pretty good. The instructions are written well. I recommend doing searches to modify recipes compared to the book. Our next venture is more jerky for gifts, then some fruit roll ups.

      I bought this machine about three months ago and I love it. I haven't had any problems with it . I only use it for Beef Jerky. I have not tried any thing else with it yet. It will cook a fully complete batch in about 6-8 hours( way faster than any other dehydrators Ive owned. Never had any problems with running 3-4 batches back to back (6hrs each). It is a little loud but totally worth it. I bought a wall plug in timer for $10 that fixed all of my over night problems. I have recommended to other family members and I'm online now to buy another.

      This is a top quality dehydrator! I have dehydrated everything from potatoes to apples to strawberries and pureed pumpkin. I love the fact that it has a temp control. It does not have a auto shut off as more expensive models do, but there is plenty of dehydrating space. I can dehydrate four pounds of potato's on this dehydrator alone in one 13 hour period. If your into prepping at all or just saving money this machine is for you. I dehydrate in the season of the fruit or veggie at peak when the prices are the cheapest. You wont go wrong!

      This unit is much larger than I had imagined. As much as I use it and put in it I don't mind the size. The para flex sheets are not included in the purchase. These sheets are a must unless you want to mess with parchment paper each time. Can't keep the fruit leather stocked because the kids love it and great for work.

      This dehydrator is as good, if not better, than reviews indicated. Extremely easy to use. Dries exceptionally fast compared to others we have used. Quicker drying results in better dried foods that retain more color and flavor. The poly screens are easy to clean, and foods don't stick as much as other types. Highly recommend for home preppers!

      This was our first purchase of any dehydrator. We were in Ecuador in December and all they used in a commercial kitchen were these Excalibur dehydrators that are amazing and impressive in every way.
