I love it. I use to have a Ronco and that was adequate however i wanted one with the fan. I really wanted a Excalibur but the cost i could not afford. This one will do fine and again i don't think the fruit and or jerky knows the brand name.
Without thinking about i have just made the jerky according to the USDA standards. They recommend that we cure and bring the it temp up to 155* give or take a couple. From no on i will make all my jerky using the casing i use for summer sausage and then after it reaches its temp i will slice and Dry. I think the texture and flavor is actually superior to all i have done in the past.
By the time i get the fruit to dry it is pretty ripe and using this dehydrator i don't have to rotate trays and i just let it do its thing. Love it.
Boy i got long winded there
