The product description says that you don't have to rotate anything, but in truth the higher that the food was to the top of the machine seemed to be done quicker. I did have to rotate the trays but it was not that big of a deal to me. I love the product, and so do my dogs who love the treats i've b...see moreof the reviewer's review

best jerky & dried fruits around

I shopped around for a long time before deciding to purchase this particular model from Target. I have made fruit leathers, jerky, raisins, a multitude of other dried fruits and simply love it. The included jerky seasoning packets are very flavorful and work well with the ground antelope we had in t...see moreof the reviewer's review

After reading a bunch of of reviews, I purchased this one due to it's reasonable price, and decent reviews. I was not disappointed at all! The fan and heat element are on the top, so any messy drips don't fall on a heating element. The company's website has more accessories for this, all very rea...see moreof the reviewer's review

Slow

This is my first dehydrator, so I'm a beginner. I followed the directions in the manual, but it took twice as long as it was supposed to for my fruit to dry. The dehydrator comes with lots of tools and different types of trays, but nothing is labeled or identified in the manual so I had to do some r...see moreof the reviewer's review

Hope to be able to change this rating. But so far no good. I purchased this last week, set it up and put basil leaves in to test it out. Followed all the instructions and it has been 3 days now and the basil is still moist. Sent an email to the company (they don't have a customer support or blog) ex...see moreof the reviewer's review

So far I have only dried some apricots. I like that you don't have to rotate the trays every few hours like when I was a kid. I overloaded my 2nd batch and the drying was a bit uneven. I really like it. I wish there was an on/off switch instead of plug/unplug.see moreof the reviewer's review

I'm pleased with my dehydrator so far. It's great for making healthy snacks. I've used it to dehydrate fruit that was not being eaten of too tart (e.g., apples, pears, and grapes) and have had good results. I've made fruit roll-ups and fruit slices/bits for snacking.see moreof the reviewer's review
