Product Overview

The Snackmaster Express features 500-Watts of drying power that generates maximum speed and quality for dehydrating fruits, vegetables, beef jerky, and venison jerky. Helps dry food in hours, not days like ordinary food dehydrators. The adjustable thermostat allows you to dry different foods at proper temperatures 95-160, providing the flexibility to produce the best drying results. Our top mounted fan prevents liquids from dripping into the heating chamber. The patented Converga-Flow drying system forces air down the exterior pressurized chamber not through the trays. The hot air is forced horizontally across each individual tray, converging on the core for fast, even and nutritious drying. There is no flavor mixing and no need to rotate trays.
  • Adjustable thermostat allows you to dry different foods at proper temperatures (95-160º F)
  • New-powerful top mounted fan, 500-Watts of drying power, 120-Volts
  • Comes with 4 trays, but is expandable to 12 trays( trays 13 1/2 in. Dia)
  • Opaque Vita-Save exterior helps block harmful light which destroys nutritional content of food being dehydrated
  • Patented converga-flow drying system forces air down the exterior pressurized chamber (not through the trays)
  • Includes 4 drying trays, 1 fruit roll sheet, 2 original jerky spice packs

I is perfect, just had to buy another 3 trays for the fruit leather and the mesh for the herbs and 2 more additional trays l. Lol Anyways sounds like a lot but not. This machine would be so perfect if it had the timer but doesn't- I adjusted by setting alarms in my phone and when is something that takes 4ever I run this overnight and in the morning I unplug it thanks to the alarm. Overall I like it and I see myself using this for years to come, ofcourse if it can handle it. The candy you can make by drying fruit will impress some people too.

Arrived timely. Works great. Seems to dry the foods faster than the times noted in the book, so you will want to periodically check the progress while it is drying. Really like it; good purchase.

Fun to use!
Kids of all ages will love using the Nesco Snackmaster food dehydrator! I always pass the displays in the grocery store with the expensive, but delicious, dried fruits and snacks but now I can make my own inexpensively! This dehydrator is about the size of a crock pot - approx. 13" wide and comes with four stackable trays but the serious chef can stack up to 12 trays. We started exploring the world of dried foods with sliced apples and banana chips. The booklet provided a few basic recipes but the internet and books are available. The motor makes a soft humming sound and in a few short hours we had our dried apples and bananas to eat. It was so easy! Delicious! I'm looking forward to making jerky, fruit snacks, dried herbs, and so much more! I have a friend who dries her sauces and freezes them for later use. This model has an adjustable temperature control ( 95 to 160 degrees) and cleans easily. The booklet mentioned that it can go into the dishwasher but taken out before the drying cycle. The prices for dehydrators vary but this Nesco Snackmaster is an inexpensive way to get started.

Works great! I use it all the time.
I've been using this dehydrator nearly everyday since I got it. Most recently I dried some parsley and also made chicken jerky (see pics). The dehydrator comes with recipes, tips, and instructions that are easy to understand and genuinely helpful. While dehydrating, the fan is surprisingly quiet. It sounded similar to a small desk fan. My kitchen is next to my TV room and I can't hear the fan over the volume of the TV. If you're thinking about making some jerky or drying herbs/fruits, this will definitely get the job done.

Excellent Dehydrator..!
This dehydrator works well. The settings are simple, and the internal fan and air movement keeps everything drying at the same pace on the various trays. I took about 5 hours to dehydrate peppers straight from the garden, and it worked great! If there is one downside, there is no Power On/Off button. When you plug it in, it’s on… I’d like a main power switch. The single switch temperature control is easy to use and well labeled. Simple, easy to use and effective, this dehydrator does what it says it will do. I love it! And, I recommend it!

LOVE THIS DEHYDRATOR!!! Right price with the right features--all we really needed was the temperature control, and it works as expected. Trays are easy to clean. Our favorite recipes so far are crispy dried okra with Cajun seasoning, and crystallized strawberries made by dehydrating sliced strawberries coated in jello powder.

This product that I ordered was not available so I was sent a more expensive one for the same price. Haven't used it yet but Nesco makes really nice dehydrators. Looking forward to using it in the coming months. If I'm not satisfied the return policy is really good.
