    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 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

    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.

    • A. There is no fan in this Ronco dehydrator. Just an exposed element in the base of the unit. That's why you get uneven drying and have to rotate trays. Also why drying times are so long in this dehydrator.

    • 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.

    • A. I remember a bottom tray catch the juice or grease but I blame its poor engineering design because its juice and grease just drop over the heat generator. I sometimes dry up bottom tray with paper towel.
