Bought one despite the poor reviews...Here's the deal:It took 12 hours to make beef jerky and about 18 to make honey-cinnamon apples. It uses almost no energy and is absolutely silent. If you rotate the trays properly, it makes for excellent, evenly dehydrated food! I just finished putting about 5.5...see moreof the reviewer's review

I recently purchased this unit from Target and love it. Just like any kitchen appliance it is important to follow the instructions while dehydrating your fruits and veggies with this machine. As long as you rotate the trays every few hours you can't go wrong. My friends and I made great fruit roll u...see moreof the reviewer's review

I repeat, don't buy this. I only used this product for about 2 - 3 weeks, when the plastic shelves started to become brittle and break from the heating element. I rotated the shelves as instructed, but the plastic shelves can not take the heat and start to deteriorate. Also, to buy 5 replacement she...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is my second Ronco Food Dehydrator. The first worked fine for 20 years. This one melted and cracked after two uses. This is a piece of JUNK now. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Nesco makes a much better one for a little bit more money.see moreof the reviewer's review
