I have a Nesco FD-80 and have had good results with the standard 4 trays. Has any one noticed any difference in time and quality adding extra trays.

Also do the fruit roll sheets and clean a screens add to drying time. Making jerky and don't want a big mess.

I've used 6 trays for jerky,but can't tell you if drying time is any longer because every load is different due to the moisture content of that particular batch. Can tell you that I still don't have to rotate the trays for even drying, even with 6. Never used any screens because the plastic trays clean pretty easily.
Thanks Im deff going to get a couple more trays. I was suprised by the easy clean up.worked great. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
