Comments from buyers

“Good quality, easy to use, great value, Fab little machine and well worth the investment!, I would recommend.”

Made use of a handful of situations previously, have been producing pet dog treats in the oven on very low warmth to dry the sweet potato and so forth out, was getting 6 hrs on reduced heat, new dehydrator will take 8 but is substantially simpler to just fill and go away on. Timer and heat both equally change to suit. All the things so much has labored perfectly.

It is a quite very good dehydrator if you never want to devote a large amount of money on one. It has the warmth and time placing at the entrance which are quick to use and improve right before and in the course of the dehydration. The trays are quite fantastic try’s they can be put in to two diverse heights relying on the peak of the food you are dehydrating. The only trouble with the trays is that is in some cases difficult to clean if a bit of excess fat or marinate receives stuck in a person of the gaps corners. It comes with instructions and some means do do food with warmth temperature and times with it. You can do meat and beef jerky in this extremely well it but it will take time to get the proper temperature and time to do it with. This is an total, a fantastic dehydrator.

As a to start with time dehydrator, i went to the base of the value array on this minimal equipment as i was just understanding how to dry out foodstuff and herbs. I can say that it is effortless to use the benefits had been incredible and i believe income perfectly put in to conserve food wastage. I’m actually impressed with the value and good quality of this machine.

Not excellent for what i required. It stopped doing work after a when. Impressed with the way the return and the handling of the refund ended up finished. I imagine for what i wished i want to get a much more robust ( and thus far more expensive) a person. This a person would be superior for drying fruit and veg, but which is about it.

It is effective but my biltong is almost nothing like mass output. Believe i need to use superior meat and seasoning and marinade for lengthier.

This device would make fab biltong.

Dehydrator helps make exceptional jerky and for it’s measurement has a huge capability. Well worth a consider if you extravagant creating an authentic products at a fraction of the shop price.

We’ve dehyrdrated tomatoes, apples, kiwi and raspberries. All took really a great deal extended than the booklet mentioned but really worth the hold out.

The dehydrator will work a treat. It does every thing it claims it will.

Have by no means employed a dehydrator in advance of, so chose a mid-selling price just one with good reviews to experiment with. It will get me a even though to get the job done out what is the ideal way to offer with every fruit and vegetable i try, but my few experiements so far are encouraging, and the device has bought a great deal of time and temperature configurations to perform with and find just the right setting for what you want to do. So considerably have tried celery, banana chips, apple slices and carrot chips. Want to acquire a mandoline to support me slice a lot more rapidly and finely, and some silicone sheets to end issues like banana chips sticking to the trays. Judging by success so far, i believe i will be using this a lot to make wholesome treats and preserve points like celery, so i can use just a handful in a stew devoid of squandering the rest of a bunch. The instructions are incredibly essential, but there is hundreds of info on the internet about various techniques to dry issues, and receipes to try, but mainly i imagine it will be make it up as i go alongside, as no two batches of foodstuffs are alike. I like the rectangular condition, less complicated to shop absent in a cupboard than the round or oval kinds. I may possibly want to make investments in a thing with far more trays going ahead, as i suspect i will be hooked on dehydrating, but for now this is good to use to understand the artwork.

Products shipped within the time scale, (a person box broken because we ended up out but it was superficial damage). Appears to be like like the image but i have not used the merchandise as but for the reason that i feel i’ve ordered the improper merchandise. The leaflet indicates hrs to dehydrate orange peel and does not record lemons ? and i ponder if it’s heading to be value effective to use or sensible for what i want.

Acquired this to nutritional supplement it is really bigger brother ,the a single from andrew james on amazon. Use it to dry barley in my residence brewing and it operates perfectly with some stainless metal mesh to quit barley falling by means of, temperature control is bang on. Also utilized it to make some dried turkey strips for my canines and they turned out great.

Purchased on a whim, but this is so versatile just recall to invest in the air-tight jars ( 4x classic airtight jars 750ml) as you will need to have them thethe supreme dehydrator cookbook is a must but be warned it is drying is very addictive.

Pretty delighted with this primarily for the rate. Adore the simple fact that the trays can be stacked at two distinct heights. Can take a minor little bit of time to get the job done out the essential temperatures / timings but we use it all the time. Favourites are apples (with cinnamon), pears and mango. Not tried out jerky nevertheless as it always in use for fruit – good if you want a nutritious sweet take care of and or a mild weight snack when you are out. Of course the trays are light-weight but i have not fearful about them breaking and i have been using them for a pair of months now.

I usually wanted to test a dehydrator but was frightened to devote a large amount of money on a thing i wasn’t positive i would use. When i spotted this dehydrator it match my funds and in contrast to the really high priced ones i could slash my loses if this type of preserving was not for me. A lot to my shock i haven’t stopped making use of it due to the fact it was sent. I increase my own vegtable’s and find i conclude up supplying so substantially absent, also blanching and freezing requires up so much time and house in my freezer even so this new way of preserving is awesome.I just have to slice my veg established the timer and the temperature and stroll absent, i discover that not almost everything is completed at the exact time but that would be noticeable as the further more away from the heat supply the more time it would acquire to dehydrate. I use mason jars to shop my tomatoes, beetroot and kalechips. I would extremely advise this product.

Fantastic, first i acquired i failed to test for over 6 months and was not functioning, contacted provider i was a little bit unhopeful because of to the amount of money of time passed, but they were being astounding and i could send it back and a new just one sent out.

    Very pleased with this especially for the price. Love the fact that the trays can be stacked at 2 different heights. Takes a little bit of time to work out the needed temperatures / timings but we use it all the time. Favourites are apples (with cinnamon), pears and mango. Not tried jerky yet as it always in use for fruit – great if you want a healthy sweet treat and or a light weight snack when you are out. Yes the trays are light but i have not worried about them breaking and i have been using them for a couple of months now.

    It’s a very good dehydrator if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on one. It has the heat and time setting at the front which are easy to use and change before and during the dehydration. The trays are quite good try’s they can be put in to two different heights depending on the height of the food you are dehydrating. The only problem with the trays is that is sometimes hard to clean if a bit of fat or marinate gets stuck in one of the gaps corners. It comes with instructions and some ways do do food with heat temperature and times with it. You can do meat and beef jerky in this very well it but it takes time to get the right temperature and time to do it with. This is an overall, a good dehydrator.

It will take me a while to work out what is the best way to deal with each fruit and vegetable i try, but my few experiements so far are encouraging, and the machine has got plenty of time and temperature settings to play with and find just the right setting for what you want to do.

I like the rectangular shape, easier to store away in a cupboard than the round or oval ones. I might want to invest in something with more trays going forward, as i suspect i will be hooked on dehydrating, but for now this is great to use to learn the art.

    I always wanted to try a dehydrator but was afraid to spend a lot of money on something i wasn’t sure i would use. When i spotted this dehydrator it fit my budget and unlike the very expensive ones i could cut my loses if this form of preserving was not for me. Much to my surprise i haven’t stopped using it since it was delivered. I grow my own vegtable’s and find i end up giving so much away, also blanching and freezing takes up so much time and space in my freezer however this new way of preserving is amazing.I just have to slice my veg set the timer and the temperature and walk away, i find that not everything is completed at the same time but that would be obvious as the further away from the heat source the longer it would take to dehydrate. I use mason jars to store my tomatoes, beetroot and kalechips. I would highly recommend this product.

    1. As a first time dehydrator, i went to the bottom of the cost range on this little machine as i was just learning how to dry out foods and herbs. I can say that it is easy to use the results were fabulous and i believe money well spent to save food wastage. I’m really impressed with the value and quality of this machine.

    Dehydrator makes excellent jerky and for it’s size has a large capacity. Worth a try if you fancy making an authentic product at a fraction of the shop price.
