    Good dehydrator with Poor Item description

    This dehydrator works good. So far we have made delicious sweet potato chips, kale chips and banana chips with it. It is pretty loud however. Warning to potential customers: In this item description (under both Best Buys description "What's included" and "Product Features") it says the fruit roll sheets are included. This is false information. The Jerk spice and cure was there, but not the fruit roll sheets, which is one of the reasons I made this purchase. I contacted the store & website; neither were helpful to resolve this issue. I asked for this inconsistency to be investigated and the description to be updated so this did not happen to other customers but I've received no follow-up call or email after 2 weeks. This isn't the first time this has happened to me from an online purchase with BestBuy - I got a 4GB computer when a 6GB was described online, this inconsistency was resolved, but their Online Store really needs to get it together and match their items and descriptions with more accuracy!

    This is my 1st dehydrator & I couldn't wait for it to come. The day it arrived I set it up & started to dehydrate away. It's very fast, much faster than the booklets states. It's also very easy to clean. I use this multiple times a week. My family loves all types of fruits and they eat then up as quick as I make them. This is a great purchase, especially for the price, it does make some noise but nothing crazy, and most importantly it's quick 6-8 hours. It had plenty of room with 5 trays. I love it!!!!

    each tray holds 1 1/2 apple/pear/peach or 2 bananas- quiet, efficient, love everything about it- it's 13" across so ample counter space needed, ran mine overnite or while at work, soak 5 min in warm water for clean up-excellent value!

    Works as expected. Slice the fruit at night, place in dehydrator, wake up to dried fruit! Machine is slightly louder than we'd hoped, but it is bearable. Worst part is cleanup after using. We will try jerky next.

    The fan is a little noisy but it is pretty fast and easy to clean. I do have to take my top rack out and turn off heated dry to be able to put the racks in the dishwasher.

    Very quick! Lots of space on the trays. I have done chicken, and beef jerky and both came out great! A little louder than expected but very effective.

    Value for the dollar by far, I was not going to use this enough to spend over 100.00. This unit is great for the price!

    Heater motor quit working within a half hour after purchase. Wasted my food and time. Go with a better quality brand.
