    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    1. Size: A good food dehydrator not only fits into your kitchen perfectly but has the capacity to dry the amounts of produce you want! If you have a small compact kitchen, then you will be happy with a compact machine. If you grow your own produce or are drying for a big family, then high capacity dehydrators are for you!
    2. Easy to clean: With so many chores, you will be happy with a food dehydrator that is simple to use and easy to clean. Finding one with tray sheets or trays that are dishwasher safe will save you tons of time and effort and have much better reviews.

    • For more flexibility with time, buy a food dehydrator with a timer or automatic switch off. This feature allows you to go run errands while the machine is still going or leaves you time to work outside in your Garden without you having to worry.
    • If you have a lot of produce you plan on drying, you grow your own produce, you have a big family or you don’t want anything to go to waste, buy a larger shelved dehydrator. They have a higher capacity and more variety.
