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.

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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product A very good food dehydrator! This product can do just about anything along those lines. There are 4 shelves with quite a bit of surface area. From jerky to banana chips this one will do it. Simply prep your product, arrange on the shelves,, and turn it on. Instructions provide easy to follow directions and proper cleaning instructions. Power cord is a nice length for a counter top. All in all well made.
