About this item
This Snackmaster® Encore™ features a powerful 500 watt top mounted fan of drying power and generates maximum speed and quality for dehydrating fruits, vegetables, beef jerky, and venison jerky. Helps dry food in hours, not days like ordinary food dehydrators. The top mounted fan eliminates liquids dripping into the heating chamber. The Adjustable Thermostat allows you to dry different foods at proper temperatures (95-160º F), providing the flexibility to produce the best drying results. The FD-61 comes with 4 trays, but is expandable to 12 trays. This unit includes one fruit roll sheet along with care/use guide.Vita-Save® Exterior. Opaque Vita-Save® exterior helps block harmful light which destroys nutritional content of food being dehydrated. Patented Converga-Flow® drying system forces air down the exterior pressurized chamber (not through the trays). The hot air is forced horizontally across each individual tray, converging on the core for fast, even and nutritious drying. No flavor mixing and no need to rotate trays. Make great tasting beef jerky, venison jerky, turkey jerky, fish jerky, homemade trail mix, apple snacks, banana chips, dried soup mixes. Dry tomatoes, watermelon, cantaloupes, papaya and many other fruits. You can also make potpourri and dried flowers for any occasion. BPA Free.

I like that the motor is on top so juices do not drip down into it. I leave the fruit leather circle ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I have had unit for about 2 weeks. So far I have done bananas, apples. Used the enclosed seasoning packet and cure to make beef jerky.......it was a big hit. I look forward to trying turkey, chicken as well as drying herbs. It is very easy to clean.see moreof the reviewer's review

I just recently received this product. It seems well made and is very easily expanded or reduced by adding or subtracting trays from the stack. I like the thermostatic control as it leaves the guess work out at least in the beginning. I've only used mine once but it did what it was supposed to do.
