We got this to make our own dog treats as they seem to be so expensive, it does a brilliant job and our dog loved the results. We’ve had a play and are now drying fruit which is delicious – the only drawback is that the dog loves them to. The dehydrator is simple to use, the instructions aren’t great but don’t let that put you off – a bit of trial and error gets you there. If you find that the stuff isn’t dry enough then just leave it there and add another hour or so – I suggest that you just note times and temperatures so that you know for the next time. The trays are pretty easy to clean, nothing shows that they are dishwasher safe so we just soak them and use a sponge……no problem. We’re planning on drying fruit and having that about the house this Christmas, instead of chocolates……I’m happy yo recommend this dehydrator – I’ve already told friends about it..5*We got this to make our own dog treats as they seem to be so expensive, it does a brilliant job and our dog loved the results.

The only limitation is your imagination.
It’s so easy to dehydrate things, even the most common things taste different.

I write a list of things I think would go well dehydrated, and just tick them off every weekend.
It makes a very fun activity for me and the mrs. as we both enjoy food.

(Cranberries, Strawberries, Blueberries, Kale etc. Or why not try a medley of berries?)

I am still experimenting but have already had some promising results. I like that it takes up less space than the circular models, perhaps they circulate the air more efficiently but the smaller footprint and easier storage were important to me. The manual is very basic and it took me a while to work out the shelf spacing. The drying guidelines are very brief but there is lots of ideas and advice online and so far the dehydrator gives the right using their temperature and timing.

Several comments were about the rather short manual, no surprise!  fortunately dehydrators are very easy to use…

Works well, long timer 72 hours. 

Treat it gently though – plastic trays ! 

Good
