Superior to my Nesco I’m actually between 4.5 and 5 stars, but it’s probably closer to 5.I hike and camp a lot, and part of that hobby is making sure I have enough food out on the trail. When I was younger and didn’t care so much about weight I went in for the full moisture MRE things (and I still do if I’m going some place where water availability might be a concern), but as I get older I’ve gone more for the dehydrated stuff. Thing is, commercial freeze dried food is kind of pricey per meal. So I started making my own dehydrated meals, figuring that the utility for freeze drying only kicks in if you are storing the food for a long time.I’m comparing this to my that I’ve had for a few years. I found this Hamilton Beach model to compare very favorably to the Nesco.First, big points for being square shaped…that means less…

Everything a beginner needs I have been dehydrating foods of my own for fifteen years, since I have preservative allergies (both nitrite and sulfite). I actually wasn’t expecting to like this particular dehydrator, but I was surprised at how much it holds for a compact size.For my first experiment, I used a complete pineapple, cut into strips (1/4″) and three apples. I quickly discovered that it only filled 3 1/2 trays. So next time I will plan more. Because of the apples, I decided to set the entire thing for 16 hours at 125 degrees. At the end of this time, I felt the apples still had a bit more moisture than I think should be there, but with the peels, I think they were harder to dehydrate. The pineapples were leathery, but again with moisture.These can be cleaned in the dishwasher as long as you don’t use sanitemp, and I would also suggest air drying for safety. Best of all, with the square shape, they fit in my dishwasher.The manual is excellent and even offers…

Solid product – not perfect, but more than adequate I currently have a L’Equipe dehydrator and like it a lot. So this particular unit had a lot to live up to if it was going to impress me. Unpacking the unit, I found it to be a bit smaller than what I had anticipated. However, the trays seem to be a bit deeper and they definitely hold a substantial amount of product for dehydration. The trays have a fairly wide span between ribs meaning that you have to be a bit careful with what you put in it. There is a single small mesh sheet to lay on one tray that will accomplish this, but this isn’t quite enough for me if it was my sole unit. The L’Equipe comes with a fine mesh sheet for each of it’s 6 trays.The controls for this unit are great, and much better than what I’ve been used to. Dials are great and there’s not much to break, but they don’t give you accuracy. The digital read on this along with a digital timer to shut it off are spectacular in my opinion. I tested the accuracy of the meter and it lines up within a…
