Additional Information

Food Dehydrator Easily Preserves the Flavors of Summer

  • Preserve homegrown produce and farmer's market finds
  • Dried foods are easy to make, easy to store
  • Buy local, buy in season, buy in bulk and save!

One of the oldest methods of food preservation, drying is the simplest and least time-consuming way to preserve fruits, vegetables and herbs, and it yields easy-to-store, nutrient-dense foods for year-round use. Save money, too, by making your own dried tomatoes, cherries, cranberries, herbs and more — without preservatives or artificial colors. This dehydrator has five stackable, adjustable trays that accommodate a variety of fruits and vegetables, plus one herb tray and two liners for making fruit roll-ups, plus mesh for making jerky. A 300-watt motor provides low, even heat and a fan circulates air for fast, even, efficient drying. Much easier and more reliable than air- or oven-drying. Includes instructions and recipes.

Easy to use

By Brenda

Unfortunately, the dehydrator had one fruit leather liner missing from the box, but I didn't notice that at first. I used it immediately to dry some cherry tomatos, and the motor appeared to stop working after a few hours. Customer service was exemplary, sending me out a new dehyrdrator immediately, and gave me a label by email to print out for free return shipping. The replacement dehydrator came quickly, and had all its parts. I've had no problems whatsoever with the motor, and I've used it several times to dry tomatos. (I had a bumper crop this year.) All in all, it appears to have been a good buy, and I know I've barely skimmed the surface of its potential uses.

    Really nice dehydrator. Stronger construction than others we looked at. Price is a bit higher but worth it. So far used only for drying fruit, which couldn't have come out better tasting.
