      Comments about Gander Mountain Healthy Preserve 5-Tray Dehydrator:

      I own this dehydrator and use it all the time. I have been drying food for a long time and finding digital unit with variable heat at this cost is not easy. I bought two additional trays for the unit and process about 7 pound of jerky per batch. The timing in the included recipe book looks about right to me, but I use it primarily for jerky. One thing I would say to the other reviewer out there is that I have found drying time varies based on the environment you are in. In the winter here the air is very dry and food dries in half the time that it does in summer when humidity levels are high. I have used my unit at least 20 times since first purchase and it works perfectly. I would recommend it to anyone.

        Comments about Gander Mountain Healthy Preserve 5-Tray Dehydrator:

        I've been running this thing like crazy making fruits & jerky for my upcoming 6 months backing trip. Hasn't quit on me let. Ive made 15 lbs of jerky and 6 batches with all trays filled of fruit. Works great. I wish I could get more trays, but it likely wouldn't work right with more.

        I do switch the trays half way through for a more consistant product as the bottom tray will dry out faster than the top.

                Comments about Gander Mountain Healthy Preserve 5-Tray Dehydrator:

                I was skeptical because of the price at first. I have dehydrated over 100 lbs of jerky over the last month since buying it. It has never died on me, or caused me any problems. The only problem I have is that is says it is expandable up to 25 trays...but I can't find extra trays for sale ANYWHERE.

                Comments about Gander Mountain Healthy Preserve 5-Tray Dehydrator:

                I got the dehydrator even with no reviews when they did not have the brand I wanted. It took a bit of a learning curve to figure out how to use but once we did it was fairly easy. I followed the included booklet for times , directions, and degrees and it ended up needing far beyond the suggested times to dry fruit and herbs. I did not try to make jerky so I do not know how that would have gone. 3 days after buyiong it while attempting to dry grapes the unit died. We ended up taking it back for store credit.
