    Have used my Ronco dehydrater for years to dry fruit, meat, and am using it now to dry chopped up celery, carrots, and potatoes. After losing so much meat after Hurricane Katrina, I prefer to dry extra meat and vegetables, etc. instead of freezing them during a hurricane season. I chop each bit into about one quarter of an inch wide and thick. Takes about 24 to 36 hours for the meat or vegetable to get dried till done. It doesn't get hot to burn a counter top but I do recommend putting it on a wooden cutting board as it works. It won't overheat a kitchen the way canning vegetables does. I know. I can vegetables, too. Very hot work indeed. Don't overcrowd the trays and make sure you rotate your trays every three to four hours for even drying. Tray one will go into tray five's spot. Tray two will go into tray four's spot, etc. High moisture food like tomatoes will take longer and need extra spacing. For the price, it's a pretty good deal for the money. By the way, dried tomatoes with the skin taste very sweet with a hint of tomato. Tasty over baked potatoes or baked poultry.

    I've had great success with my food dehydrator! I'm ordering 3 for Christmas gifts for my daughters! I bought my Ronco over a decade ago for about the same price as Walmart has it today. My girls were young and time was limited. I used it to occasionally make Jerky and dry fruit for several years. About 5 years ago, my husband installed the storage cabinets in the garage and I "lost" my dehydrator to the back of it. I was so glad to find it again. Just in time too. My basil, zucchini and tomato plants are going absolutely crazy. Just as I was about to dry those, I realized I had a large container of mushrooms that needed a home. Woo Hoo! I dried them, used my Food Saver to store them and moved on to my peaches, then the zucchini and tomatoes! A light spritz of Pam or veggie oil and turning the trays 1/4 turn every couple of hours are key. FYI, my Jerky doesn't last long enough to package it for storing.

    I use mine all the time without any of the problems listed by other users. I'd suggest reading the intructions before using as they SPECIFICALLY say that high moisture foods should not be dried with low moisture foods and that you need to cut meat thin for jerkey and not over pack the trays. If you use it the right way, everything comes out perfectly. I have also found that if you have high moisture foods, put an empty tray on the bottom and on the top and it will help with the convection drying process (think air flow through a chimney). I dry whole baby carrots, celery, mushrooms, tomatoes, etc and all kinds of fruits. I have made AMAZING thick cut jerkey as well as thin cut. You just have to make sure the meat doesn't touch each other and you have good air flow, if you can't feel the heat coming out of the top, you need to remove some of the food from the tray to ensure proper air flow. I love mine so much, I am buying another! I live off grid with solar and wind power and LOVE the fact that the Ronco uses only 500 watts of power and helps stock my pantry as veggies and herb come out of the garden. GREAT product

    Ok, so there seems to be a lot of negative comments about this Ronco dehydrator so I'd like to go over them. First off the melting of the trays. I had one tray on the heater by itself for hours and not once did it become weak or malleable. From the reviews it seems like there is a relationship between this and Jerky. So I would not recommend this if you ever plan to use it to make Jerky. Now some say the trays are brittle. I personally don't think so. I found them to be pretty sturdy and the plastic is fairly thick. They are really easy to wash and if you are just doing fruit it peels right off without any residue. Now as for time. I love that it just uses a heating element so it emits absolutely no noise. It is completely silent. Because of this some say that it takes forever to dry the fruits. But I found that in just a few hours if the fruit is thinly sliced you'll have a gummy consistency like apple rings. It does take much longer if you do want chips, but because you get 5 trays if you keep a constant cycle going you'll constantly have chips ready, It does say rotate every 2-4 hours though that's hard to do while you sleep, but because they didn't melt in the daytime, they shouldn't overnight. There is no buttons or knobs so all you have to do is plug it in. I do like that it is BPA free so its safe to eat off of. Overall it really is a good product, and the company has been around for 50 years so you have some reliability. I really enjoy it and i think you will too. Also if anything does go wrong there is always a warranty or you can just return it.

    This is the first year I have had the time to have a garden and I am loving the flexability of canning some things, freezing and dehydrating others. The only problem I have had is that some of my squash has been small enough pieces to fall thru the grates and banannas are not working at all (I had to just wash them off and trash them) a simple fix would be to buy the screen grates to go along with the standard machine. I also tried to dehydrate some balogna but unfortunately that had really bad results (I burned/melted parts of the grates) the fat content in the meat created too much heat and they didn't taste good either but the dogs love them and they make great/cheep chewies for them. I think I am going to figure out a way and keep doing the balogna for the dogs but not untill I am sure it won't hurt my machine. I have dried pickles, squash, cucumbers and zucchini with great results. Before too long I am going to be buying the screen trays so I can do watermelon and cantilope. Overall great purchase well worth the price I paid and it was cheeper here with pretty much the same thing as over the product web site. Very happy with this machine.

    This was my first attempt at drying fruit to make my own herbal teas and I have to say the only drawback is having to rotate the trays. That said it works pretty well and I look forward to learning which fruit works best. I like the fact that it is clear and that you can see the process.

    After one batch of jerky that we ended up putting in the oven because the ronco never reached a temp above 85 degrees the ronco went back in the box. Honestly we would have been better off putting an old stove coil under a bucket with holes poked in it and added a few trays and called it a dehydrator. Sure it comes with a ten year warranty because on the eleventh year your first batch of jerky will be done. No fan no temp setting heck there isnt even an on off button. Bad product and I should have known better than to buy something that was featured on an infomercial. DON'T BUY THIS ITEM and Wal-Mart I love you get this junk out of your inventory!!!

    I purchased this dehydrator as a Christmas present for my parents this past year since we could not find our old one. We are a family who loves Carne Seca (Beef Jerky) from our family in New Mexico. However, it can be very expensive. It costs us $20 for only a pound and that doesn't last very long for one person. I had an idea that we should just start making it ourselves. To make a long story short, the directions told me that it would take 1 to 2 days and I was very surprised to find out that it finished in 12 hours or less. I was thrilled. THe best thickness is meat that they cut that is used for milanesa (whatever that is) it is the perfect thickness. I also purchased the meat at my local Super Wal-Mart. Overall this Dehydrator was excellent.

    This unit is very low quality. It has no fan and only one temp. so makes it take longer to dry. This I could live with as it is a lower priced unit. What really amazed me were the trays, By the time it was one month old every tray was cracked and two were broke in half. This it did on its own from the heat I guess. It was never dropped or abused in any way. They start cracking in the middle and the crack spreads each time you use it. Spend a few more dollars and buy a better unit and not a Ronco.

    • A. You could line the bottom with tin foil if the meat is that greasy. Actually, you shouldn't dry fatty meat in a dehydrater unless you plan to use it right away or freeze it right away. Lean meat makes the best jerky or stew meat when dehydrated then reconstituted.
