Comments from buyers

“Great Product At The Price., Yeah, I mean, it dries things. Nice sturdy trays but too early to be conclusive., Good way to control salt and calories if you like snacking.”

It has uncomplicated to use directions and is secure and uncomplicated to use.

Very delighted with this product. I am new to this approach of preserving food. Instructions straightforward to follow. We have utilized it for a glut of tomatoes and have 3 500g kilner jars of dried tomatoes in olive oil. To dehydrate a total machine does acquire a reasonably very long time but i remaining it on in the kitchen area and did not come across it noisy or intrusive. Will surely experiment with other fruit and vegetables now i have effectively dried the tomatoes.

Had some great tasting tomatoes from this dehydrator.

Extremely prompt shipping in forty eight several hours of ordering. Taking into consideration the funds price tag, i thought the item was nicely made and fairly strong. It is about the dimension of a small microwave but substantially lighter, so it is effortless to retail outlet away just after use. The controls are uncomplicated to use, the trays are simple to assemble and clean. The trays stack with each other in two means, both ‘low’ or ‘high’, which is evidently marked on every tray. The equipment is quiet in operation, about the very same as a compact lover heater, which is mainly what it is. I built a batch of beef jerky the day immediately after acquire, cutting the beef about 6mm thick and marinating in a barbecue sauce for a couple hours prior to dehydrating at 70c for about 4 hours. I then dried some home-grown chillies, they took significantly for a longer period to dehydrate at a temperature of 50c, some ended up ready in 8 hours, the more substantial ones took 12 hrs. I am quite pleased with my purchase and it will get plenty of use.

Arrived two weeks quicker than i was told. Quick to use an success great.

This is a terrific minor dehydrator that is now in nearly continual use. A really profitable current :).

Simple to use, requires about eight hrs at fifty degrees celcius to dehydrate apples / bannanas. Also effortless to thoroughly clean, shelves glance fragile, do not bang them about, i consider they might crack. All in all, for the selling price, extremely satisfied with quickly supply and so significantly, is effective as predicted. I dipped the apples in lemon juice first, so that they failed to go brown. You can see two bannanas on a tray in the connected photo, as properly as 3 dehyrdated apples, bagged, that i am going to have for a snackat get the job done.

It is ok for the price, i don’t like the sound but it is really not possible not to listen to something, i guess, due to the fact it really is utilizing a ventilator.

Durable cabinets, going okay so much. Arrives with plastic trays for fruit leathers and, in my circumstance, rice. Good layout, way bigger than i assumed it was likely to be. I can in good shape 1kg of carrots, two peppers, a single serving of pasta and a single serving of rice in this all at once. It is sitting at residence at the minute, drying fruit. Only grievance is the seemingly not one-1 monitoring of the dials. I am going to change them and very little will transpire and then i am going to change them slightly more rapidly and boom, max time/ temperature. It will take a little bit of safe and sound-cracking twiddling to make the figures come out proper.

I purchased this as a present the suggestions i got was that it was a very excellent item and has been employed continually due to the fact it was purchased.

Superior item, quickly transport. I have tried out to dehydrate apple, plum, banana, to make crackers, fruit leather and all is good, healthier snacks for children. A excellent way to use backyard veggies and fruits.

Very clear and basic to observe guidance. Wonderful way to have a good fruit snack, even out of year.

Outstanding, i have made use of it frequently with no troubles.

Seriously helpful for preserving your surplus backyard garden make. I have dried tons of things with this, in particular chillies which i have decreased down to leathers, flakes and powder. It does not seem to be to use considerably electrical power, about the same as a one hundred watt bulb in all probability.

Ok, does the occupation, but the timer is pretty imprecise, and even worse: the tiers had been somehow combined up through producing, so relying on which way you stack it, either the lid or the foundation is not going to in shape effectively, so you really don’t get a secure stack, and never get a safe seal. I suspect one of the amazon sellers is marketing manufacturing unit rejects as a retail item :(.

I do discover that the timings on the recommendations are not rather proper, nevertheless, you are capable to tell when some thing is prepared.

This is my 1st dehydrator and i like it. It is incredibly simple to use, use your look for motor to get aid with different fruit and vegetables. Don’t hope much assistance from the instruction guide.

Incredibly swift shipping by domu uk, and a rapid response to a adhere to up query about added fruit roll trays (not currently accessible but they approach to be providing spares and components quickly). I have not tried other dehydrators so are not able to assess this with other models, but owning applied this a few of periods i’m impressed. It is uncomplicated to use, holds loads and dehydrates effectively and evenly. The trays in shape jointly properly, but really feel a bit gentle and flimsy. Hopefully with mild cure they will stand the test of time, but simply because i really don’t have comprehensive self-assurance i am only offering it 4 stars for now.

This dehydrator has lots of capabilities for these a very well priced product. It really is shape will allow you to retailer it absent neatly. Six stackable trays dry elements evenly – i have utilised it so much to dry pumpkins, apples, plums and pears. For a solution this superior and at this price it is perfectly value paying for.

I have other excellent goods from andrew james and von shet, and the reviewer responses about recipies tipped me to this somewhat than the otherwise identical andrew james. Only applied it a several occasions, but pretty thriving so much. Fresh new pineapple is excellent, as are cherries and sweet potatoes. Operates with buttercup squash, this will come out quite tricky and chewy, but truly will make an excellent and nutritious snack. Although you can chomp as a result of a packet of crisps (with all the salt and energy from the oil) in no time, it takes a when to chomp by way of twenty grams of sweet potato or butternut squash, and you truly feel entire by the time you have completed. Unhappy by carrots, they shrank a great deal and ended up really challenging (i feel i would fairly try to eat them raw). Pretty a big gadget, but i assume it will be staying on the worktop.

. I certainly suggest this, i’m dehydrating anything and anything i can uncover, it is so swift and easy to use.

    Sturdy shelves, going ok so far. Comes with plastic trays for fruit leathers and, in my case, rice. Nice design, way bigger than i thought it was going to be. I can fit 1kg of carrots, two peppers, one serving of pasta and one serving of rice in this all at once. It’s sitting at home at the moment, drying fruit. Only complaint is the apparently not 1-1 tracking of the dials. I’ll turn them and nothing will happen and then i’ll turn them slightly faster and boom, max time/ temperature. It takes a bit of safe-cracking twiddling to make the numbers come out right.

    I have other good products from andrew james and von shet, and the reviewer comments about recipies tipped me to this rather than the otherwise similar andrew james. Only used it a few times, but very successful so far. Fresh pineapple is excellent, as are cherries and sweet potatoes. Works with buttercup squash, this comes out quite tough and chewy, but actually makes an excellent and healthy snack. While you can chomp through a packet of crisps (with all the salt and calories from the oil) in no time, it takes a while to chomp through 20 grams of sweet potato or butternut squash, and you feel full by the time you have finished. Disappointed by carrots, they shrank a lot and were very tough (i think i would rather eat them raw). Quite a large gadget, but i think it will be staying on the worktop.

    Ok, does the job, but the timer is very imprecise, and worse: the tiers were somehow mixed up during manufacturing, so depending on which way you stack it, either the lid or the base won’t fit properly, so you don’t get a secure stack, and don’t get a secure seal. I suspect one of the amazon sellers is selling factory rejects as a retail product :(.

    I have bought it more than a year ago, and used a dozen times or so. It was easy to use, albeit giving some times results due to very uneven temperature distribution across each tray. However – it had nearly started a house fire yesterday. The fan has stopped while the heating elements were still working. It was in flame in less than a minute – fortunately, just after start when i was still around. Having in mind that this is a device you could leave running for hours, this is really dangerous. When it is possible that the heating elements don’t stop immediately after the fan has stopped, such a device should be simply banned.

    Really handy for preserving your excess garden produce. I have dried lots of stuff with this, especially chillies which i have reduced down to leathers, flakes and powder. It doesn’t seem to use much electricity, about the same as a 100 watt bulb probably.

    1. Very quick delivery by domu uk, and a quick response to a follow up query about additional fruit roll trays (not currently available but they plan to be offering spares and accessories soon). I haven’t tried other dehydrators so can’t compare this with other models, but having used this a couple of times i’m impressed. It is easy to use, holds loads and dehydrates effectively and evenly. The trays fit together well, but feel a bit light and flimsy. Hopefully with gentle treatment they will stand the test of time, but because i don’t have full confidence i am only giving it 4 stars for now.

    1. This dehydrator has plenty of features for such a well priced model. It’s shape allows you to store it away neatly. Six stackable trays dry ingredients evenly – i’ve used it so far to dry pumpkins, apples, plums and pears. For a product this good and at this price it is well worth purchasing.
