This dehydrator comes with four (13 1/2″ diameter) trays and expands up to 7 trays so you can dry larger quantities, with no tray rotation needed. Additional Add-A-Trays sold separately. The fixed temperature control takes the guesswork out of finding the optimal drying temperature when making jerky and the quiet, powerful fan forces heated air down the center chamber, then across each individual tray for consistent drying.

    This is a great unit for the price. I’ve used mine for 2 years and have made a lot of jerky in that time. I purchased the add a tray to increase production and this did not take away from it’s dehydrating ability. I run my trays through the dishwasher when finished and it has only warped the inside of the trays a little. However the only damage that has been done is the clear cover has cracked in multiple places causing me to have to use tape to hold it together. My biggest cons for this model is that it’s round and runs pretty hot after a while (around 170-190 f), but again for the money there isn’t much competition for it.

    Tonight is the first time using this dehydrator. It is as simple a piece of equipment as you could possibly design. Put food on trays, stack trays, plug machine in, and turn it on. After a few hours, it seems to be drying out the apple and banana chips just fine. What is most obvious is this thing is noisy. After a few hours of it in the kitchen, sounding more like a barn fan than a small kitchen appliance, I had to move it in to a spare bedroom. of sight, of mind, we just have to remember to go in there and check it from time to time. Time will tell, but so far it seems to be doing just what we got it for.
