    Looking for dehydrator recommendations.

    Hi,

    Looking at buying a new dehydrator for making jerky. Would like to keep it under $200, any recommendations?

    Thanks

    the best I've found so far, heat control , easy rack cleanup when one rack is done they all are done
    They have done a bunch of jerky too , always looking for them at garage sales

    Second on the Nesco American Harvester. Iíve had one (the same one) for twenty years. I donít do jerky, but I do dry garden tomatoes every year. Most years I do about a five gallon bucket,...and thatís AFTER drying. Thatís a LOT of tomatoes on the hoof. It gets a little funky after a few rounds. I just take it apart and clean it. I mean take apart the dryer part which youíre not exactly supposed to. Youíll see itís a pretty simple machine. A dial type ďthermostatĒ which is just a set off contact points regulated by the wheel dial. And a heat strip and fan. Thatíís it. And the previous comment is right,...when one rack is done, theyíre all done. Iíve heard you can add racks beyond the four they give you but Iíve not tried that.

    I have several Mr. Coffee drier and always had to rotate the racks and even flip the meat to get dried right , plus the racks were harder for clean up with a brush those have been retired for years now....one thing ill do is put the plastic piece below the racks on the bottom to catch drippings .....works well
