Works very well and a bargain for the price, the trays are sturdy and easy to clean so over all i am very happy with the product.
Asked for some advice on drying herbs and got immediate reply.
So simple to use,easy to clean and yet the fruits come out delicious. So much better than the bought dryed fruits. Probably the best buy on amazon.
Made my first batch of dried fruit over the weekend. Took about 28 hours but quality is great.
We use it for drying mushrooms.
Have done all sorts of items from sweet potato chips to buckwheat granola. I noticed that a couple of the trays have cracks that appeared after the dehydrator was used on a higher temperature. Not sure how long they will last.
Really easy to use and does the job perfectly.
To be honest, after one use i am not sure if i did it right, after 12 hours i noticed my strawberries were warm but not dehydrated. I didn’t realise you have to keep alternating the trays. I also believe you hae to cut the fruit into thin strips for it to be successful. Maybe i’ve done it wrong, but its not something i’m overly impressed with.
As most people who own 3d printers are aware, filaments such as pva and nylon are extremely hygroscopic, meaning that they have to be dried in the oven for a few hours, or in a special filament drying machine, often costing upwards of £100. Well, by cutting out the acrylic centres and supergluing the remaining rings together, i can safely say that this product is a perfect replacement for an official filament drying machine. If there were to be an improvement, i would love for additional individual rings to be sold separately so that i could stack multiple filaments at once.
Product arrived very quickly and well packaged. I was impressed by the amount of space there was to use. So far i’ve dehydrated banana, mango, pineapple and melon. It’s been a bit of a learning curve getting the right thickness of food but finding the process quite enjoyable. The fruit which i have dried is really full of flavour and in my opinion, far superior to shop bought.
Bought this to dry rose petals for ‘confetti’ and it has proved very good. Instructions are not great as no correlation between dial and temperature, so it is a bit of a guessing game. We did dry some apple – it ended up being a bit crisp (quite nice) but it is not obvious whether a higher temp is better than a slower lower temp.
We bought this to dehydrate herbs and veg to use in our homemade food mix for our pet rats. It’s super easy to use, i can do fairly large quantities and it’s exactly what we needed.

I absolutely love this dehydrator. I have made banana chips so far and made beef jerky since receiving it made the best beef jerky/biltong in it. It’s amazing for the price. Had a different one and it was no good it didn’t even have air or a sound coming from it.Opted for this one after and what a great bargain. Can’t wait to try and dehydrate more things in it. I can see me using this a lot.
Great price, easy to use and brilliant for drying all fruits and veg.
I use for drying herbs and it works well on the mid range temperature setting (i take care not to dry things too hot). Only not given 5 stars as the build quality, whilst adequate, is not super robust. I do however recommend this product especially considering the very accessible price bracket.
This product is of good quality. The trays do need to be hand washed but are fairly sturdy. I’ve made beef jerky, banana chips, apples rings and sundried(dehydrated) tomatoes.
Really easy to use, very pleased with it.
Does what it says on the box.
Reviews from purchasers :
Is perfectly able to dry out filaments for 3D printers
Fantastic produce – very quiet and does a brilliant job
Never had a dehydrator before so didn’t know what to expect. I’m still experimenting with this and am very pleased with it so far. Have done beef and chicken in it twice and also tried some fruit. It all came out really well. I have some peppers that i want to try next. It’s easy to use and to clean. It arrived in good time and was well packaged.
Bought this to make treats for my dogs. Chicken and turkey came out great. Recipe book does not give guidance on drying poultry so it was a case of trial and error. If i had to replace it i would get a machine with a timer control.
I was fed up of buying my dogs their favourite treats of dried sweet potato and chicken wraps. Decided to buy this and try and make my own. I have made loads of them now and keep them in kilner jars and it works out much cheaper than buying them.
Great size, straight forward to use. Only downside was the temperature dial said 1-8 and in the book it says this represents the temperature but doesn’t tell you specifically what temperature each number means?. So it’s a bit of guess work.
Only 4 stars for temperature control as the advert showed the control in celcius but my machine was in numbers. However i have used this machine several times since purchase and i am very pleased with the performance. A good machine for this price bracket.
Use this at work for drying fruits and herbs – then grind them into powders – no wastage.
I’ve been using this product for a week now mainly drying apples and i’m really happy with the results. My daughter absolutely loves them. Only shame the lid arrived with a small crack, but so far it doesn’t seem to have affected the drying process.
Easy to set up and use, i’ve used it mainly for herbs at the moment but seems to work well.
Very happy with my purchase i bought it simply to make jerky and it works a treat , the capacity is bigger then i expected which is good and nice and simple to use.
Larger than i expected and concerned about the shelves as they seem fragile. Have used once and did some nice apple and beef jerky. Worked well but took longer than expected. The book it says that comes with the unit was not quite as good as i had expected but ok.
Used just the once at the moment. Although purchased for a different reason than food dehydration. I am using this machine to dry out 3d filament.
Replaced my old machine with this. It does what it is supposed to but takes way way longer than old machine or what’s stated in booklet. States timer but there is no timer and temperatures not on machine just numbers albeit it gives corresponding temperatures in manual. Ok for the price and good for beginners but will be getting something better later. No tray for making fruit rollups or other more liquid foods. Gaps in trays quite big so small foods fall through.
We love dried fruit, however after buying some dried mango from a big grocery store that had a disgusting whitish powder all over the fruit, i looked for a dehydrator. I have used it several times and the fruit comes out delicious. The package comes with a ‘booklet’, not a ‘recipe book’ as the listing says. >in the recipe booklet they suggest to immerse the fruit in fruit juice for a couple of hours before drying it, and trust me: you don’t need it. The fruit retains all the natural flavors and sweetness, no need for more. >in the recipe booklet they suggest to cover the fruit with lemon juice so the fruit keeps its bright color. Times may vary depending on what you are drying, so far i have dried: mango, pineapple, strawberries, apple, pear, kiwi and peach.
Easy to use just i have to looking more informations how to use temperature controler there is just numbers no temperature level.
Using this to dry filiment for my 3d printer.
I bought the machine to make south african biltong. Took 10 hours and you would have thought you had bought the biltong in the shops – love it and can’t wait to try dried fruit. Excellent value for money and extremely quiet so you can have it in the kitchen without it driving you crazy.
Excellent product, good value for money.
Tis the mushroom season here, and thought this year i’d try this product to, dry and store edible wild mushrooms for the winter. Well pleased on the first run, on my second batch. If it stands the test of time, it will have paid for itself many times.
Very pleased with product and would recommend it.
A very easy to use dehydrator. Straight forward instructions and a handy ‘recipe’ book with simple instructions.
