I bought this as a Christmas present. It seems very sturdy and easy to use; I like how it’s mostly metal. The other dehydrators I’ve seen from other brands were mostly plastic, which was why I hesitated to get one. This model has plenty of space (6 trays), and is a little heavy, but it’s still portable enough to move it around as necessary. The noise level is also pretty decent. It has a low-ish hum that’s quieter than a convection oven.
The recipient is looking forward to drying some herbs, and peppers and apples as well!
