    Default Food Dehydrator

    Does anybody have one? Is it worth the money?
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    My friend has one and makes the most delicious dehydrated pineapples and cinnamon apples. That's all I've tried, but it is truly heavenly.

    Yeah I am interested in it for dried fruit and fruit leather as a snack and also for making up camping food. I feel like I could make some delicious curry or dal or something like that and dehydrate it and then bring it backpacking. I think they are pretty expensive though.

    Only get it if you are hardcore vegan or into healthy eating. My raw vegan friend needs it basically for kale chips and such because she consumes such a large quantity and percentage of veggies and raw food. They have a hardcore multilayer version.

    Personally, I would never use it as I don't like dried fruits or veggies or even beef jerky.

    I do use a pretty expensive Blendtec blender because I drink an average of 3-4 smoothies (bunch of kale, whole carrot, whole apple, whole banana) for breakfast a week and force feed them to others.

    Sounds brutal.

    I have one and I use it to make homemade jerky with less sodium than anything store bought. LOVE it!! I would totally say it's worth the money. I haven't tried it on fruit yet, but that's on my To Do list
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    How much did it cost and what brand do you have and where did you get it?

    I don't like to keep many special purpose appliances.. but homemade jerky would be worth considering. That stuff is priced like gold and tastes like it.

    oh yes. i love mine. i have an excalibur 9-tray http://www.amazon.com/Excalibur-2900.../dp/B000Q7GUJ2

    and i use it to make 'chips' , thinly sliced veggies (kale is great),
    spray with bragg's aminos and pop them in. soo yummy.

    and i used it to make a lot of 'raw' cookies : oatmeal, power bars

    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.
