Pros: Effective, Capacity, No rack rotation, Price Point
Cons: No On Off Switch or Timer
With 5.5 sq ft of drying surface expandable to 11 sq ft, this unit has the capacity for basic home and garden use. There was no problem loading 5lbs raw of jerky meat. I was impressed with how effectively it dehydrated jerky and the no need to rotate racks air flow system. 700 watts seems to be at the top of most dehydrators this size I researched before buying. The power head is on top with a fold up stay cool handle and the therostat is infinite setting between 95 and 160F. It comes with one round fruit leather tray and a recipe/owners manual and 2 seasoning and cure packets for jerky which I did not use. Various accessories are available as well as additional racks in 2 packs. I must say I am pleased overall with this unit and the price point of under 60.00 for this unit seems to be a great value.
