(What's this)
My wife always wanted to try a food dehydrator and see if it was worth the effort so we started with apples, pears, strawberries, bananas and pineapples. The process took eight hours and we cut the fruit according to the instructions. The fruit was delicious and a little chewy so we put it in the fridge over night and I have to say that the pineapple had the most flavor and the banana was second. The machine was a little tricky to use but we figured it out pretty quickly and all you can hear is a small hum from the fan and it does throw off a little heat. The size is on the larger end but it is very light to move. I am going to try meat next which will take another eight hours but I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

Nice simple electric dehydrator. One drawback is that the metal mesh racks are not dishwasher safe. Controls are very easy to use and simple. Just set the time and temperature on the front panel. The front window is big and gives a good view of the food as it dehydrates. I went a bit crazy and started a bunch of fruit when I first got it - apples, bananas, mango, raspberries blueberries, peach. These all need different times, so I was checking on it and removing different things as they were ready over about 36 hours. The timer doesn't actually go to 36 hours, so I had to reset it a couple of times. The kids liked the apples and bananas the best, which was great - very easy and cheap! The raspberries concentrated the sourness, and ended up a bit tough, so we probably won't repeat that. Some of the food wanted to stick to the racks, but they would pop off once it was dry. Not a deal breaker, but wish it was better about that. It comes with six wire mesh shelves and one plastic tray with tiny holes (which I used for blueberries). Haven't had a chance to make beef jerky yet, but that was my primary interest in this machine - should by yummy and happy to make some jerky without weird flavor or added "stuff".

This is a pretty good food dehydrator. I got it to (mainly) dry herbs, make jerky, and dry fruits for storage. I haven't been able to try the fruits yet because it's not quite the season but I did have a chance to dry some oregano and make some salmon jerky. In operation it worked fine but the oregano took about 4 times as long as the manual indicated it would. I did dry with the leaves still on the stalks but it still took much longer than I expected. The jerky came out great and took about what the manual indicated, although on the high side of the range. Construction is generally good although the door feels like you wouldn't want to bump it too hard when it's open. The window in the front is very nice. The shelves are a woven stainless steel which are not as sticky as you would think and clean up quickly. It would be nice if additional non-stick mats were included (there's only one for "fruit leather") additional mats would greatly improve the usability. Who dries one shelf of anything. The big downsides are the fact that the trays have to be loaded outside of the dehydrator and then slide into place. This makes for more of a mess when dealing with something messy like jerky. It would also be nice to have a place to store the cord when not in use. Most of all the temperature selection makes no sense at all. The range is 95F - 160F but it doesn't go up and down in any rational way. Mostly the jumps are by 15 degrees except where they have a 10 degree jump from 95 - 105. It's just weird and makes it impossible to hit the middle range of recommended temperatures for many of the items in the instructions.

We grow the majority of our food here so harvest season is a crazy busy time. I have another brand dehydrator but really needed to up the output and opted for this Elite dehydrator. Some of the things I really like about it: the design is nice looking and would be just fine on the kitchen counter for use often. I love the see inside window so I can check on stuff without even opening the door and the dishwasher safe stainless steel racks are indeed awesome. No one wants to wash those plastic ones in the old machine. The only feature I am not crazy about is that it runs for 19.5 hours and then has an auto shut off. That means I can set it in the morning but better remember to reset before going to bed or it will stop middle of the night. So the price is much better than the fancy name brand and it has a lot of really nice features too!

The Elite platinum dehydrator arrived packed very well. The box was of thick hard cardboard and the dehydrator was protected by foam on both ends. The trays were packed on the sides of the dehydrator to prevent them from being bent. The manual is very easy to read and follow and the instructions are complete. However, you DO need to completely read the manual before you begin to use the dehydrator. We have dried bananas, mangos, apples, peaches, and pineapple. The kale is being prepared to be dried as I write this. The dehydrator is not only an easy way to create healthy snacks that everyone will love, but it is a lot of fun. You have to experiment with the sizes of the item to be dried, and experiment with flavors. For example, we are going to try drying apples with cinnamon sprinkled on them. Another feature about the dehydrator is that it is not just for food. You can also dry your favorite flowers and create your own dried flower arrangements. The Elite platinum is made of a sturdy plastic that should last a long time as well as be very easy to clean when needed. The heat generated appears to be contained with some of it radiating from the sides of the machine. There is a little bit of heat that is released through the door catch, but most of it stays inside reducing the amount of energy needed to complete the drying cycle. Everything that you need for hours of fun is included.

This dehydrator is a good value so far. I have only had it for a couple of weeks but it's working just as I expected. It's pretty quite while running, and "cooks" everything thoroughly from top to bottom and front to back. No rotating trays necessary! The surface area for drying is really good considering that the machine fits on the counter. The spacing between the trays has also worked well for everything I have wanted to dry- like kale chips which take up some vertical height on the tray, but it all fit!

My wife has talked about getting a dehydrator for years and when we got a chance to get this one we grabbed it up, Nice clean look, matches many of our counter top appliances. It is big, but a dehydrator kind of needs to be. So all good there. I love the six shelves, can get a lot done at once, we did a full cantaloupe on three shelves. The buttons to control it are touch button, which helps with it’s clean look and with the ease of cleaning it. The problem there is it is a little slow to react to your touch and you can’t really tell if it took your command. So be patient and slow, so far that seems to be the key. As far as function goes, it seems to be about on par with others, Temp goes up as high as 160, but most the recipes we have looked at don’t require even that high of a temperature. We cooked a whole cantaloupe today in about 8 hours and they came out great, racks cleaned up easy.

I was looking a for a replacement for my 20 year old Ronco dehydrator and the Elite Platinum food dehydrator was exactly what I needed. Having trays that slide in and out, individually, rather than stacked is a huge selling point for me. The stainless-steel mesh trays are much easier for me to clean versus the delicate plastic I was afraid would break if I scrubbed too hard. The mesh trays go into the dishwasher leaving plenty of room for other dishes versus the thick plastic that took up so much room it needed a cycle all to itself. I use my dehydrator exclusively for jerky and it does an excellent job. I appreciate having the ability to accurately control the temperature and there is no need to rotate the trays. This is a load-and-go machine that doesn’t need monitoring like the one it replaced. The auto-shutoff feature makes it perfect to leave running while I am at work. Much quieter than I am used to. Time will tell on the quality but I hope to get many years of use.

The idea of dehydrating foods should not be considered an easy or fast thing to do. Will take time and serious devotion to the effort. This unit is large, with 6 trays where a good quantity of herbs, etc. can be loaded. However the controls are rather glitchy, in that you toggle between time and heat and up/down keys. I found that the time/temp switched before I could set either one, and had to repeat several times. The lower temp of 140 degrees and 5 hours used to dry herbs, according to their supplied instruction manual, did not work. Needed 4 more hours at 140 degrees, and then 2 hours at 160 degrees. I Googled several sites on dehydrating before I could get a successful test. But will endeavor to continue as these results are way cheaper / fresher than the bottled herbs.
