👤Although I have a huge dehydrator that I bought from Cabella's, I haven't used it much because I never had enough to justify the cost of electricity to run it. I grew my own herbs and they became so popular that I couldn't use them fast enough. I found this dehydrator and decided that it would be perfect for smaller jobs. My first project was to dehydrate basil leaves, since my basil was exceeding its bounds. I will include a video that you can hear the noise level in, since there has been some concern about the running noise of this dehydrator. I don't think it's more than a hair dryer, but you don't have to listen to a hair dryer for 12 hours or more. I have a number of macaws, but I am not sensitive to noise, so the constant noise got to me after a while. It's not unbearable, but I might find a place for it that I don't have to hear it for so long. I believe the dehydrator will do the job for the smaller portions I want to dehydrate. I like that this dehydrator can be used for more than one tray, and that it has temperature and time controls. The time set will shut off when it's done. If you want to check food before the time is up, you can press the off button and then press the on button to continue the dehydrating process. The more I use it, the more I like it. I can't possibly use all of the herbs that I'm growing indoors because they're too big to eat. This is true of basil and parsley. I can freeze what I can't use with this dehydrator. The jarred herbs you can buy in the store are not as good as the herbs you can buy using this method. I will update this review when I try the fruit leathers. I decided to make fruit roll ups in this dehydrator. It was very easy. We freeze a variety of fruits when they are on sale. I have been using them to make smoothie, but now I have a new use for them. I will add pictures and update this review as I try more foods in this dehydrator. Please click on the helpful button if you find this review helpful. I chose strawberries and bananas because of their good flavors and the fact that they have enough Pectin in them. I put the cups in the microwave to thaw the fruit, after adding an equal amount of each to the large cup of my Ninja food processor. I added more of the fruit until I had 12 ounces. When using frozen fruit, you should pour most of the water out to speed up the dehydrating process, since there is a lot of water in most fruits. I spread the fruit evenly in the fruit roll tray after pureeing it. I used spray oil in the tray, but next time I will use less or skip it. The book says it will take 4-7 hours to dehydrate a fruit roll, and I took about 6 hours to dry the underside. I could not wait to try it. I now have a new snack for my family. I will make 6 of them in different flavors. I took a picture of the fruit roll in the dehydrator and then cut it. I ate a few of them before taking the picture. My suggestion for fruit rolls is to use no more than 1 1/2 cups of fruit and spread it evenly on the tray.
The Digital Thermostat has eight temperature levels from 95o F to 158o F, with a nonstick fine-mesh sheet for drying small food like herbs, and a solid sheet for making fruit roll-ups. A six-tray system for dehydrating food at a fraction of the cost of commercially dried foods. Sample packets of jerky seasoning and cure are included. Digital thermostat and timer for precise drying time and temperature can be used. presto dehyro food dehydrator can be used for this purpose. It's ideal for drying small foods. It's perfect for small foods that may fall through the drying grate.
👤This is the best dehydrator I have ever owned. I bought a second one so that I could do more at once. I looked at more expensive options, but the purpose is the same, even on more expensive dehydrators. I would recommend purchasing it. I have made a number of things, but I haven't tried jerky. Everything I've made has turned out well.

The hot air circulation dries food. The food shrinks but still has vitamins and minerals. Scientifically tested to increase shelf life.
👤I decided to order the same thing because it was easy after 7 years of Excalibur. It was damaged when it arrived. I could see how cheap the plastic was. I didn't want a dehydrator that had plastic shelves. I read many reviews. I can still dry a lot even though this is a bit smaller than my previous dehydrator. I did my first batches of apple rings and they were very efficient and juicy. It has a regular style door, which is different from the one you just kind of hang on to. I hope this lasts because I really like it. The handles on the side make it easy to carry.
👤Dehydrating with this machine is very easy. Consistent performance. We've been using this for a while. There were no complaints. I was able to schedule food rotation cycles once I got the hang of it. It's running 24 hours a day unless I've forgotten to purchase frozen veggies, take time to process fresh fruits, or cook meat with the fat extract and stored. The temperature range is accurate. It runs quiet as well. It has a 24 hour timer, but if you're busy or in doubt, add more time. Don't let dried food sit in stagnant air. We'll buy another one and then more as we can fit them. Don't bother with the 5 shelf get the 10 because you can use the volume or alternative spacing when you need it. You will wish you started years ago if you know how easy it is to create food security. Even if others don't acknowledge the state of things, take responsibility of your future. Investing in the future is a labor of love. Independence and choice are dependent on food sovereignty.
👤Absolutely love it! The beef bulgogi jerky was my first experience with the nutrichef and it turned out great! It's easy to clean and it fits a lot of food in my kitchen. The recipe book is an added bonus and it turns off automatically when the timer is up. This is a good dehydrator.
👤There was a small dent on the top side corner. There was no damage to the package that would have caused a problem during transit. I am assuming the dehydrator was damaged in the manufacturing process and shipped with it. I have yet to try it out. It affects the appearance of an expensive appliance in the kitchen. Disappointed.
👤I have been using it a lot. I have made a lot of jerky. This thing can handle a lot of product at once and does a great job. The shelf is the only thing I would try to improve. There is a rack supports. It sometimes tips to the next shelf, but not a big deal. It's just annoying.
👤It fits perfectly in my kitchen. Quiet during operation. When I tested it, it reached 170 degrees in about 5 minutes. I don't have to wash them because it has a dishwasher safe wire rack. Controls are easy to use. The interface is very intuitive and you are ready to go. I'll be making my first batches of turkey jerky and will update this review with any new information.
It is easy to store and clean. If you remove the tray liners before the drying cycle, they can be washed on the top rack of the dishwasher. You can easily check food with the 48 hour timer. You can adjust the drying temperature with a digital thermostat. Even drying is provided by continuous airflow. The drying trays have 500 watt power. One fine-mesh sheet for drying small food like herbs and one solid sheet for making fruit rolls are included.
👤The thing sounds like a vacuum cleaner. I couldn't keep sane and leave this running for 10 hours with it's noise and humming. It can be heard in the house. I uploaded a video. This is unacceptable and should be returned asap.
👤I wanted to make dog treats. I paid attention to the ingredients because I was disgusted with the warnings. I spent hours guilt ridden over what we had been feeding our babies. There is a downside to making treats without Preservatives. Make room in the freezer for humid Florida weather. The dehydrator. I was comparing makes and models for weeks. I knew from other reviewers that I wanted a timer, fan placement, and not too loud. I was going to use it for something. This fit the bill. After baking the dog treats, I started drying them. I decided to make jerky. OK. The 1st batches was not good. You are warned not to make the meat too thick. Don't make it too thin either. I had the butcher slice some meat for me, but I also had to cut it in half with scissors. It was perfect. I sliced the chicken breast from the partially frozen one. Flank steak is delicious. I steamed the beef heart and wrapped it in sweet potato strips to make it softer. The unit performed great despite me making some mistakes. I don't have to move items because one section is drying faster. If you want to keep the rest going, you should keep everything the same size and on the same tray. I have 6 months left. I couldn't be happier. Three dogs, one daughter and one very happy son-in-law are included. I saved money and bought it in the first place. They immediately go for homemade treats if they are offered a store bought treat. Dogs are smart!
👤I was excited to make some jerky after receiving my order. It ran for 4 hours, then I put it on for another 2 hours, and after 15 minutes an ER code came up. The error code kept coming up when I tried plugging it back in. After taking the serial number and model number, Hamilton Beach said it was an internal problem and they would send a new one. I had to pay for the shipping. Why? Their product was not good. I called Amazon. They are sending a new one, but I have to send the old one back. It's great from Amazon, but I have to be careful with their product. I don't know what I will have to do for a refund if the replacement works. It's a good thing. I think it did work in the few hours, it was nice and quiet.
👤This seemed to be the perfect fit after a lot of research, and it has not let me down over the course of a year of regular use. I usually get a lot of bananas on all the trays. 2.5 lbs of steak will fit in the trays. The spice layer is very good. The reference book has information on times and temperatures. I wouldn't mind if it was 165, I run it for 8 hours or so. I have grown various spices, and so far I have done 18 lbs of jerky, 6 rounds of banana chips, and 4 rounds of pineapple chips. I haven't gotten the real crisp on fruit chips. I have tried many times, but it's not quite there. Everyone loves them and they last for a while. The timer option is my favorite option.
Plastic is the material type. The model numbers for the food dehydrators are 0630001, 0630102, and 0630203. It's ideal for drying small foods. It's perfect for small foods that may fall through the drying grate. It is flexible for easy food removal. There are two drying screens.
👤I ordered them at the same time as the dehydrator because they were useful in making the cleaning process much easier. I didn't think they would make a difference since they are mesh, but after using them, I understand. A lot of bits that would normally gunk up the trays don't make it into the grooves when another layer of mesh is placed into the machine's trays. These are so easy to clean and make the process of drying smaller things easier. I dried garlic with these. If you want enough for all the machines' trays, you will need to order two packs. When I order the fruit roll trays, I will order another pack. They are supposed to be dishwasher safe but my dishwasher is new and has some thinner plastic items so I won't use them as they would be useless if they were warped.
👤There are only four trays for my unit, so I purchased two of these 2 -pack screens. The plastic is a nice sturdy plastic with reinforced edges. They are easy to pick up with the finger slots on opposite sides. There is only one pre-set 'high' setting for the heat, so I didn't notice any more time needed to dry my items using the screens. The leaves and flowers are very dry. Depending on the thickness of the item, the screens and food dries fast. I keep these on my trays for dry things. It is easy to wash up. It is recommended.
👤I can't say enough good things about this appliance. When I couldn't find the pepper powder I wanted on AMZ, I made my own. It is wonderful! I made dried apple slices for 9 weeks before Christmas. I am back to my pepper powder and it is just like smelling in the kitchen. At one point I thought I was having a problem, so I called the company, and they sent me a return label, which I looked at. They returned it to me because they couldn't find anything. I figured it out. It was something I missed, not them. I am making dried items again. Next up. There are onion slices and rings. Despite all the "rah-rah" about the more well-known others, this is the best machine I have found. This is a basic machine and you should treat yourself to it. You will love it!
👤After having to pick up bits of food that have fallen in my dehydrator, I bought screens that have a mesh like surface to keep food in place. The screens are large enough to let the air circulate but small enough to keep small items of food from falling on lower trays. I store them on the trays in my dehydrator and wash mine by hand. They fit most round dehydrators and can hold more small items of food. Give them a try.
👤The only way to dry small fruit/veg/food in the Presto dehydrator is with the nonstick mesh screens. Small fruits and foods that are less than 1/2 of an inch in size can fall between the plastic ribs of the trays that come with the dehydrator. These screens are non-stick and can save you a lot of time. If you want to keep the food on the trays, pop it on one of the screens and you can easily move it. Flexing the screen to loosen sticky foods is suggested by the directions. You may need to brush sticks from the mesh holes when you clean them. I don't use the heat dry feature on my dishwasher, but I assume that these screens might be fine, given that the dehydrator itself gets to around 160oF when it's working.
It's perfect for small foods that may fall through the drying grate. A six-tray system for dehydrating food at a fraction of the cost of commercially dried foods. Sample packets of jerky seasoning and cure are included. Digital thermostat and timer for precise drying time and temperature can be used. presto dehyro food dehydrator can be used for this purpose. It makes healthy snacks. Use fresh, frozen or canned fruit.
The package has 2 mesh screens. A six-tray system for dehydrating food at a fraction of the cost of commercially dried foods. Sample packets of jerky seasoning and cure are included. Digital thermostat and timer for precise drying time and temperature can be used. The fan and heating element are mounted on the floor. For use with presto dehyro food dehydrators. There is a package with two dehydrating trays. Additional trays can increase drying capacity. The trays are for compact storage.
The package contains add-on dehydrator trays. The model numbers for the food dehydrators are 0630001, 0630102, and 0630203. It makes healthy snacks. Use fresh, frozen or canned fruit. It is possible to remove sticky fruits and vegetables after drying. Plastic is the material type.
👤These are very easy to use. You can make fruit leather by sitting on top of the dehydrator baskets. I blended 1.5 cups of premade organic applesauce with a half of a peach and 3 strawberries and put them in a well oiled ring. I dehydrated it for about 6-7 hours until it was tacky and didn't leave a mark. I rolled it up and cut it into 1 inch pieces after cooling it for an hour. My kids are 5 and 1.5 years old. Great snack! Do not put it in the dishwasher. Hand wash those rings.
👤It is very easy to make fruit rolls. Spread 1.5 cups of apple sauce in each tray and spray these down with cooking spray. You can put it in your machine. It takes six hours to dry four trays of apple sauce. YMMV. I've had no issues with the fruit rolls coming off the trays. I peel them off the trays and put them on wax paper. You wouldn't know there was no sugar added when I use generic applesauce. You know exactly what you're eating with shelf stable treats.
👤I've only used it for tomatoes and herbs. The sliced tomatoes took a long time, but the halved cherry tomatoes were done in less than 24 hours. Three weeks after they have been dried, tomatoes had no mold. I expected it to be louder but it was not annoying. The trays are easy to clean. The counter is helpful because you can set the timer for the next time you do something and not have to worry about checking or adding up all of the timer sessions. I got the extra trays to use with tomatoes, but they took longer than the regular mesh, and nothing dropped through, so unless you plan on making fruit rolls or drying thick or soupy stuff, you may or may not need those. I plan on using this a lot more in the winter when I can use the slight heat that it creates.
👤These sheets fit in my old Magic Chef dehydrator. I tried some from a friend's dehydrator, but they were too large. These sheets were used to make plum fruit leathers. They have an edge on them that will keep your liquid from running off when you pour it on the sheets. I received a total of four sheets from the two sets I bought, and they all worked well in my dehydrator. Definitely a good investment. I can make healthy goodies for my kids.
👤It was impossible to get an even layer of fruit puree that would dry uniformly because the trays were warped and buckled. I took a chance because they were the only ones that fit my dryer. I put them in the oven at 190 degrees for a few hours with weights on the sides and centers. They were flattened to a great degree. I will try to make them smaller. It's difficult to spread a uniform layer of sauce on a tray. I used them once and they didn't work out. We will see if they hold their shape. Poor materials and manufacturing processes. I suggest wiping on a light coat of cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Stack up to 9 at a time with additional trays. Fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices are dehydrated. It's great for fruit rolls and jerky. There are 6 drying trays, 2 fruit roll sheets, and 2 mesh screens. The thermostat selects the temperature for drying. The timer sets the drying times up to 48 hours. Add-on trays are sold separately. Dehydrate jerky is made from meat, poultry, or seafood. Fruit roll sheets can be used to make fruit rolls.
👤This is supposed to dehydrate fruit. It comes with six trays that hold 4 apples, so you can make and enjoy fruit for a few snacks, not buying a lot of produce. Since you're looking at a hobby-size dehydrator, you should expect that. My experience is that if you rotation the trays frequently, things will dehydrate fairly evenly. Even though the square shape fruit leather is the same from center to corner, you have to make sure the mix is evenly distributed. It will take longer if one area is thicker.
👤I am new to dehydrating, so take this for what it is. After a day and a half of lemons and limes, my peppers have been the only full success. I put bananas and paper thin apple chips in for 20 hours and they are still flimsy. I am trying sliced ginger and mushrooms. I am increasing my temp to see if that is my issue because I don't think the temps are spot on. I live in a high humidity area, so I think that may be my problem. I can see through the trays without stopping the dehydrating process. That is a good thing in my book. I don't want to rate positive or negative until I know the humidity and temperature. I dehydrated onions and mushrooms in my air fryer in half the time. I can't do the volume I want to work on because it can't be monitored. I will keep going until I figure that out. Well, heck. I had to give a rating. Don't take that rating into account. I think humidity is very important for me. Keep that in mind. I love it! Since this review, I have been experimenting a lot. I figured out how to make my own spices, meals, veggies, fruits, and I have been playing with a lot of things. I have a designated area for it to be washed so that when you walk in the house, you smell good. Need more time.
👤I have had this for a month now and have been using it to process candy at 160 degrees. This has done an excellent job at dehydrating. It took a little to adjust how I use the space it offers to get the best results, but I find this with all dehydrators and this is the fifth model I have bought in over 30 years. This unit did an excellent job of getting my product dry enough for storage and sale, because it is heavy in sugar and moist.
👤This is the new Nesco I bought. I don't think one can find a better deal for the money. The timer is very useful. I don't have to wake up at 2am to check on my project. Having a clear lid and trays is great, but I still have to open the lid to see the progress. That's what I'm talking about. The trays stack inside each other and it is much easier to store them than it was the predecessor. The thing has not dropped temp from where it was set. The gauge is digital. The old dial was more precise. I like the square shape. It seems like it's easier to load and organize. Fruit leathers are always appreciated. Couldn't be happier.
If you receive broken trays, please contact them for support. They offer free replacement service, so you don't have to worry about making your own food or snacking. AJUSTABLE TEMPERATURE from 95oF to 158oF is the ideal temperature for dehydrated foods. All-natural dehydrated foods and snacks are healthy. There is no more processed junk food. Pet lovers can make healthy and delicious 100% natural treats for their pets with fun and crafts. Even heat distribution is achieved by using a base mounted fan. You can see the drying process with a large viewing window. The ETL listed at 350W of power is perfect for home use. Don't use outdoors. The parts are dishwasher safe.
👤The item had a cancer warning on it. I would not recommend this item. The product isn't mentioned in the details.
👤The thing works but not well. I lent my large food dehydrator to my mother last growing season and decided to purchase a small one for a few fruits and herbs until I can get my larger one back. I have experience with other food dehydrators. I know that it wouldn't be. It was nice as the other dehydrator, but I thought it would get the job done. It takes much longer than stated in the pamphlet, and it does in fact dehydrate food. There is no way to know which temp the machine is currently heated to, and the light that comes on when you turn it on is a bit misleading. You have to make sure that the tiers are seated correctly. I'm not very happy with how long it takes to dehydrate, so I may end up returning it, but I'm going to give it a bit more time. The herbs took about 12. Apple slices took about 24 hours to dry. They should take about 12.
👤I would caution people to wash it thoroughly before using it because it will run out. I put some apples in after a quick wipe down and got a strange smell in the first few hours. In nature, it seems oily. Will try another load and update the review later. The smell is still present and penetrating the food. My rating was lowered to one star. Run away from that one!
👤When I bought it, I was a little nervous. There were a few good reviews and a few bad ones. So. I was confused but my sister has one and it works well. I decided to buy it. I am very happy that I did. It's easy to use and control the temperature. There are people who did a review on how to use it, so you can check it out for more tips. I used it three times in the last three weeks and it worked. I don't know why people have bad reviews, but this machine is perfect. It is perfect for hydrating carrot and white radish in Vietnam.
👤I like eating dehydrated snacks, but they are too expensive. I decided to make my own. The dehydrator is nice. You can control how long the temperature is for your snack or ingredient with 3 temperature grade reads. I check on my food when it's getting dehydrated. I don't want a snap in my food. I am very happy with my results.
👤This is the best dehydrator I have ever owned. I like giving food gifts. dehydrated fruit baskets are expensive. The cost of a gift basket is the same as the cost of a dehydrator. The dehydrators had 4.5 stars. I picked this one because it was on sale. I am very happy with my choice. We have a lot of fruits and vegetables. I put them in gift baskets for my husband's staff. I made a bag of gorp for the trip. We love lemons. I would imagine some adult drinks as well, since they are great to put in hot or cold tea. The apples tasted great. I have no room in my small kitchen. I will find the room.
Can be used with the model numbers. Your dehydrator's capacity can be expanded. The number of trays varies by model. When all 12 trays are used, the space savings will be over 50%. The package contains add-on dehydrator trays. The package contains add-on dehydrator trays.
👤I love my Dehydrator. I thought I could save time and electricity by buying more dehydrators. Doesn't work that way. It takes forever when you stack 8 trays. The dehydrator is not powerful enough to dry out the extra trays of fruit. I would have bought a second dehydrator instead of these extra trays.
👤The food trays are the same model that I had. They fit perfectly and serve their purpose. I took two stars off because they were too expensive. You could buy a second new 06301 with six trays included for the same price.
👤I don't know why I gave these 5 stars. I haven't tried them yet. It fits perfectly for my dehydrator. I can make 30% more of it. With more space and more product, you will have to increase run time.
👤This unit is awesome and made today 6 trays. I bought an extra set of ground beef jerky in 7 hours and thin top round seaks in 4 hours 700 watt, which will get me 2 extra trays to complete. I highly recommend thisfantastis, it's strong, built and clean, and it's a good store. I had a wall/plug timer type that was the same for Xmas tree control lights and I saved $40.00 by buying a dehydarator with a built in timer.
👤It fits with my trays. They are difficult to wash in most modern size kitchen sinks or dishwashers because of their size, but it's worth the extra effort because you can fit lots of product on these trays to dry.
👤The racks are great because of their pain in the neck. This is the best dehydrator I have ever owned. I'm happy to expand. At some point I will buy four more of these, and finally have the 12 that the machine is capable of using. It will be great!
👤It was a perfect addition to my hydrator. I have more trays to dry beef jerky. I don't have a dishwasher, so I have to scrub the trays with a brush to get between the screen lines and grooves.
👤The type that came with your machine is exactly the same. They are the same manufacturer. It is not the easiest thing to clean. Make sure you have a plan for how you're going to clean them. It's not a trivial issue.
👤Me encant, lleg, and it's accesible.
