    Dehydrator?

    Primal Fuel
    I'm really wanting to add a food dehydrator to my kitchen and have no idea where to begin looking, or which have the best quality. Anyone here have one/use one that they love? Any to stay away from?

    Thanks!

    Mine from walmart works fine, but I usually just do maybe 2 lbs of jerky (raw weight) at a time. It works fine for what I do. I think it's a Sunbeam brand, but I can't be for sure right now.

    I love the Good4U brand, it has a temperature gauge and a timer on it and theyre a lot cheaper than the excalibur dehydrators

    I have the Excalibur 4 tray model and I highly recommend the brand.

    I, too, have an Excalibur model (the 5 tray one), and its been awesome so far. I picked it up after reading suggestions from a thread here on the forums somewhere.

    Anything is better than spending 300.00 on a dehydrator. Try the sunbeam or good4u brands.

    I bought this one: Amazon.com: Nesco/American Harvest FD-80 Square-Shaped Dehydrator: Kitchen & Dining No timer, but if you get so precise you want it to turn off when you are out you can plug it into a Christmas light timer. It is a lot easier to clean it if the trays fit in your sink; you might want to measure. It seems to dry quite evenly, but I've only done apples and bananas.

    I have a circular Nesco dehydrator that works pretty well. The trays are kinda hard to clean since they don't fit in my sink, but I can get stuck-on stuff off pretty well with a bristle brush.

    I just use my oven. Doesn't cost anything extra or take up counter space.
