does it come with all the stuff in the picture?

it shows jerky gun in that picture and tubes and all
Asked by: Wayne
I was expecting the gun too since it was pictured. But nope. The Jerky gun is a separate purchase. No idea why they have that picture up. Was one of the reasons I bought it.

What temperature do you use for dehydrated apples and for how long

Asked by: ashley
I use the temperature guide that is on the top of the dehydrator, which indicates to use 135 degrees for fruits. Depending on how dry you want the apples, how juicey they are and how thick they are sliced will all affect the amount of drying time. Fiji apples, dipped in lemon water, patted dry at 3/8" slice took about 3.5 hours for how I like them (a little chewy).

Snackmaster Encore 4-Tray Expandable Food Dehydrator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Innovative Design This compact, counter-top unit comes complete with everything you need to start drying your own fruits, vegetable and herbs.There is even a jerky starter kit for those so inclined. Being vegetarian, I was not motivated to use this function yet, but it is well suited for such an operation. There are four stackable plastic trays included, as well as one fruit roll tray. Full, detailed instructions are included, which also suggest the purchase of additional trays, fruit roll trays, and additional jerky supplies. Although the instructions give you suggested times and temperature settings, experimentation is a must. There is a temperature control, but no on/off switch. In operation,the noise level is about that of a microwave oven and heat output is enough to warrant placement on a heatproof surface. The trays and base are soap and water cleanable and can be washed in the top shelf of a dishwasher, but removed before the drying cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality food dehydrator I upgraded to this food dehydrator and the Snackmaster Encore food dehydrator is leaps and bounds better than my old one. This is so easy to operate. You prep your food, spread it out on the trays, stack the unit together, set the temperature, and plug the dehydrator in to turn it on. What I really like about this model is it has a variable temperature control with the the type of food you are dehydrating written next to the ideal temperature. This is very useful to ensure you are dehydrating your food at the appropriate temperature. The guide has a time table with recommended processing times for each type of food, vegetable, and meat/jerky you are dehydrating. This really could not be easier to operate. The unit includes a sturdy base, four stackable dehydrator trays, a fruit roll dehydrator sheet that can be placed on one of the trays, the top dehydrator that connects to the power outlet, and a detailed instruction manual with food timing guide and recipes. It even comes with two jerky seasoning packets! So far I have made dried apple slices and pear fruit rolls. They all turned out amazing! I am looking forward to making beef jerky with this unit to see how it turns out.

The construction is sturdy and looks as if it will last. Initial setup was easy. Cleaning it after use is easy. Using it is easy. I love that it has a thermostat so that allows me to control the temperature used. It is quiet enough to not interfere with TV or conversation. It does exactly what I bought it for very well. The only thing that keeps it from being perfect is the lack of a timer for automatic shut off. I would definitely buy it again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quality dehydrator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice! Been looking for a small but efficient dehydrator for a while. This one fits the bill. Daughter and family planted a big garden this year. Because of the warm weather we are experiencing we are still getting plenty of vegetables and herbs. They wanted a dehydrator so I got this one and it is doing a beautiful job. It has 7 heat settings so you can do most any veggie. It comes with 4 trays and one sheet tray. It is expandable to 10 trays so can do a lot of dehydrating at a time. Very nice machine. So far it is working like it should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly! We grow produce and do farmers markets on a weekly year-round basis. I've thought about getting a dehydrator for preservation purposes, as I routinely pay others for the use of theirs. This is so simple, yet super-efficient ... I love it! We sell grass fed beef, so the first thing to go in was a roast. I marinated it as instructed and it came out perfectly. Did I mention I love this machine ... really a great buy. I have apple slices in it as I write. Believe me, I am going to get a lot of use from this dehydrator. I think next ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
