Well I thought it was great BUT.... I don't know how long a small appliance like this is supposed to last, but mine lasted just over a year and it died on me today. :( Of course now I HAVE to go buy another one because it died in the middle of my dehydrating! I run a rabbit rescue and small animal rescue and use the dehydrator to dry out treats and fruits to sell to do fundraising and I am very upset that I have to take money out of the Rescue's budget to buy another one.

Buy it I bought this dehydrator to make treats for my dogs. From the very start it was easy to use and very fast. I make sweet potato treats in about 6 hours. The dogs love them. I have made apple, sweet potato and chicken treats without any difficulty or problems. I need to buy the expansion trays now so i can make more stuff in one sitting. I feel that if I continue to make the amount of stuff i want, I will buying a second one as well. I'm impressed with the easy of use and clean up and the speed at which stuff drys. February 9, 2013
Fun and Easy to Use Neither of us has ever owned a dehydrator before this one. It comes with a how to and recipe book and it's as easy as chopping items to fit and turning on the dehydrator. So far this is our favorite and most used gift we received as a wedding gift. November 21, 2012
Works well! This is the second dehydrator we have bought over the years. The last one did not have a fan, so one has to rotate the trays and the food does take quite a bit longer to dry out. This one is great as the fan helps to dry the food quickly and there is no need to touch the trays during drying. This machine has been working overtime this summer dehydrating strawberries, apples, bananas, figs, pineapple, peaches, nectarines - in fact pretty much any fruits in season. My teenagers love the fruit and very often the trays are empty before the drying is even complete! The only downside although I still gave it 5 stars (but thought I'd mention it) is as a previous reviewer said - it does give off quite a bit of heat and of course one can hear the fan running - which doesn't happen in my "fan-less" one. Overall a great machine which I'd highly recommend. * By the way, most fruit dries within a day. August 23, 2012
