    I ordered this dryer through Walmart for my wife for her birthday! Both of us are extremely happy with it. It is easy to set up and use, and it is of great quality. In the few days that we have owned it we have made fruit roll ups, dried bananas and apples, and a big batch of deer jerky that turned out amazing. I am extremely satisfied and would recommend it to the world. I know that their are cheaper ones out there, but if you want quality and a decent price, this is the dryer to go with.

    The biggest draw for me was the ability to expand. To pay this price and be able to add on later was what got me to think about this purchase, reading the great reviews is what got me to make the purchase. It's quiet and since we took it out of the box a few days ago, it's been running non stop and we haven't even tried to make jerky yet. My biggest reason for even searching dehydrators was because of our dog. She has food allergies that didn't develop until she was about 8 months old. Prior to the discovery, she loved rawhide chews. That had to stop and she was limited of what kind of treats she could have. The pup that was used to a variety of treats was now down to only hypo-allergenic treats from the vet until we discovered sweet potato chews at PetSmart, which she loved and didn't have a reaction to - the only ingredient listed on the package was "sweet potatoes". Paying $8.50 per lb just wasn't a smart option for me...I looked into doing it myself at home so thankfully, we only paid that retail price once! I ordered this machine on a Saturday and was making my own batches of sweet potato chews 4 days later. For what I paid for the machine, I could have purchased less than 6 lbs at retail price. Instead, I've spent less than $10 on sweet potatoes and ended up with 10 lbs of chews. I think we made a smart investment...and so does our dog. :-) IF I had to say anything remotely negative about this machine is that it puts off a good bit of heat so I make sure to have nothing else around it while in use to avoid possible melting. Otherwise...awesome!!!

    You will have perfect results every time. I "put foods by" utilizing different procedures. This is by far the easiest and more creative of all the methods of food preservation.

    We've had this for just over a month and only used it for dehydrating fruit so far, but we are very pleased with this purchase. I never saw the kids eat so much fruit so fast! I actually had to hide it (the dried fruit) so they wouldn't make themselves sick, they liked it that much. Gone are the days of throwing out half a flat of fruit from the big warehouse store because it didn't get eaten soon enough - and we still haven't even tried the fruit-roll tray yet! My only difficulty was that the size of the trays make them a little inconvenient to scrub in the sink and I was a little worried about breaking them with all the scrubbing it takes to get that dried fruit off, but I can live with that. They could improve the feet on it to be non-skid though. I was concerned that the dehydrator would slip right off our granite countertop because the whole thing slides around so easily, however I solved the issue by putting a rubber mat under it. Overall, we are very happy with this product.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I wanted to get into food dehydrating without the expense of the dehydrator itself as most were $100-300. This was very reasonably priced and had great reviews. I have only had it for about a week and have dehydrated apples (several times-kids love them), pineapples, shredded chicken and leftover rice and beans. I vacuum sealed the leftovers and reconstituted them later to see how they tasted and it was just as it was originally cookded. I plan to dehydrate and vauum seal leftovers for emergency storage and to save money on wasted food (waiting to see how much the electricity bill will go up though...). The only downside is no timer, but I found that you dehydrate more to touch/texture more than a specific time. You could simply use a cooking timer or set an alarm on your cell phone to accomplish the same result. Easy to clean and several temperature settings on the top for a quick reference. Very plesed with this product!

    Although we have only had this dehydrator for about 2-3 weeks, I will say I am quiet impressed thus far. I ordered this one because of the large number of "almost-5-star" reviews overall. We chose ship to store for shipping and it arrived very very quickly. Kudos to Walmart for that! I have never tempted to make deer jerky before, and the first time I tried it on this dehydrator it came out great! Also, if you like kale chips - I didn't have to put anything on them (not even salt), and they came out nice and crunchy. Other great ideas are plantain chips, as well as dehydrated herbs and other fruits. A great healthy alternative to many of the greasy foods we find just about everywhere. I'm looking forward to the many great uses I will get out of this. Also expandable to 12 trays if you have a lot of things your making at once, or if you just like to make a large quantity at a time. Highly Recommend!!

    I bought this dehydrator a couple of weeks ago. Wal-Mart was definitely best in price. I was an "oven drying"man for more than 30 years...I can't believe I wasted all that time in the oven. This machine was perfect for my jerky. Extremely even drying over all the racks without rotating, and dried my jerky in just 4 hours...very quietly, I might add. I dried every fruit from bananas to peaches, pears, apples, mango, pineapple, strawberries - that takes about 12 hours, which, if you are a dehydrator junkie is very quick. The most useful feature of this product is the temperature control, eliminating harmful bacteria in your meats, yet drying fruits without "cooking" them. An additional plus, is that the (quiet) motor is top-mounted, so any drippings go on a simple plastic easy-to-clean tray at the bottom instead of in your fan unit. I just bought 8 additional racks to increase my capacity because friends and family are inundating me with orders. That's over 20 square feet of drying surface. Everyone will be getting jerky for Christmas! I only wish Wal Mart sold the LT-2W drying racks as well. Additional racks can be purchased for $9.99 per pair if you Google it right.

    This was to be my first food dehydrator purchase. I got this model after researching dehydrators via the Internet. This particular brand and model seemed to be well liked by other customers. I am inclined to agree. The unit is durable and has several heat settings. I have dried peppers, apples, bananas, and peaches. I have also made beef jerky two times. All has come out well. I think for the price paid this unit is a very good deal. The only thing I did not care for is that it only came with four trays. I purchased two extra trays on EBay and now I am as happy as a clam with this dehydrator. Hmm clams…nah don’t think I will dry any of them. LOL!

    by Andilee123

    I love how easy it is to set up. It's idiot proof pretty much all you need to do is look on the top for the temp you need for what your using fruit,meat, and herbs all use different temps. It also comes with two cures and season for jerky which tasted pretty good a tad to salty, but everyone loved it and eyed me down to make more asap. Just remember the more moist a fruit is the longer it will take to finish It takes over 15 hours for jerky, and fruit a like. So be prepared to wait around this isn't a instant thing, but it is a set it and forget it type of item too so you can go out and do stuff through out the day or get a good nights sleep. If you're just starting out or have done this for a while this machine works perfectly. The price is nice too for all that it does. Unless you get a lemon which you can return for another you will not be disappointed. :)
