Experiences or opinions?  I returned the Cabelas digital turd that I got for Christmas and got this one.  So far I didn't get the clean a screen thats supposed to come with it and I can't find the serial number for warranty purposes.  I'll mainly do jerky but my wife wants to do fruit.

I guess nobody has any experience with one. You may want to look at Amazon reviews and see what others are saying.

I got one for Christmas.  Never had any problems out of it.  I did go on Amazon and pick up four more trays for it.  I cut my jerky somewhere around 1/8".  Usually around 4-5 hours, I can start to take a few pieces of jerky off.  By 6-8 hours, the remainder gets finished.  I set mine of max heat (around 165).  I like mine a little drier than most.  One thing I do (not sure if it helps any), is take the trays and reverse the tray order periodically through the drying process.  Again, not sure if this helps any.

It worked great. I think next time I'm going to cut back on the cure a bit. I used Cabela's Classic and it was very salty.
