            Comments about Gander Mountain Healthy Preserve 80L Commercial Dehydrator:

            At first, I was afraid to get this because of the negative comments. When I looked at the one at Cabelas', people had the same problems with those dehydrators as the problems stated here. We have had ours for a few months now, and have dehydrated almost anything we can get our hands on. It works beautifully! Definitely worth the purchase in comparison to buying the small dehydrators all the time. The bigger one would have been nicer to dry more at a time, but this one fits perfectly in the house.

                Comments about Gander Mountain Healthy Preserve 80L Commercial Dehydrator:

                I looked at this unit and the one sold at Cabella's that my buddy owns. At first I thought they were the same, but this unit was much nicer. The display and buttons are all behind the glass where the other unit used the old style rocker switches. I noticed with the Cabella's unit that meat and grease got into the switches. With this unit I am able to use some 409 and a paper towel when done to clean up everything.
                The LED lights are a nice feature so you can see the progress of the jerky.
                I also like the racks, they are nonstick so I just soak them in the sink when done and they clean up easy.
                My store only had the small commercial unit but now I see on line that they sell a bigger unit as well (160 I think). In retrospect, I would have ordered the bigger one if I had known about it. I make jerky about once a week this time of year and give a lot away to my co-workers/friends. Overall I am very very happy with my purchase and have had no issues.

                    This is a great unit. Out of the box ran for hours worked beautifully. No issues at all. The LED light is very nice. We have two Excalibur dehydrators that we've used for years. This is great addition to our dehydrator family. The size and capacity are fantastic! Grew up using dehydrators that my dad built, and never found one that had as much capacity until I found this one. Highly recommend.

                    total disappointment

                    Comments about Gander Mountain Healthy Preserve 80L Commercial Dehydrator:

                    There are a few steps you must go through after your purchase of the 80-L dehydrator. Hope you will find these steps helpful. 1-remove all packing material from unit. 2-read instruction manual. 3-start unit. At this point in the process you will notice a beeping sound, flashing lights and finally total shutdown. 4-take a deep breath try to maintain your composure during the repackage process. 5-return to Gander Mountain in hopes of a full refund. Good luck

                          I purchased this dehydrator 12-3-14. On 12-4-14 I took it out of the box and got it put together, I plugged it in and then turned it on. It operated great for 45 seconds until all the lights started to flash then the dehydrator turned off!!! I UNPLUGGED it several times to reset it, and restarted several times with the same issue. LIGHTS FLASHING AND BEEPING!! I do not recommend this unit to anyone. Oh I looked at the product reviews after the mishap, and the only review stated the same problem as I experienced. Headed back to the store for a complete refund, then buy a less expensive dehydrator that may work properly.
