Make Healthy Snacks with Nesco 600-Watt Food Dehydrator

My kids have a restless reaction to foods that contain red dye 40.  We figured we could entertain their cravings by making homemade fruit leathers. The ability to make jerky was a bonus for me. I ordered another brand that I thought was going to do the job, but once it arrived I found the construction to be subpar and it was passive, requiring rotation of the trays. I immediately returned it and purchased Nesco unit instead.

This machine is very easy to use, no explanation necessary. The trays are sturdy and durable. The fan is quiet but still powerful enough to dry the foods in a reasonable time. The documentation is basic but good enough. It shows you drying times and has tips & tricks for different foods with recipes included. I have used it for many times and made several batches of jerky, which the whole family enjoys.  I have also dehydrated apples, potatos, tomatos, bananas, peaches, grapes, and oranges and have been very pleased with the process and outcome. My kids absolutely love them.  Yesterday I even made beef and Guinness stew and dehydrated it for camping!

This Nesco Food Dehydrator has large capacity without taking up excessive counter space.  The variable temp lets you dry delicate foods without harming nutrients.  The stackable trays customize the size of your dehydrator - you don't waste power drying empty space.  Also it dries contents fairly evenly from top to bottom of tray stack.

All-in-all, this is a wonderful machine. I would recommend to anyone, even a newbie dehydrator like myself! For more information and the best price with free 2-day shipping, please click  the link below to Walmart.  Thank you.
