All aboard for a quick snack! Dehydrate fruits, vegetables, herbs, jerky and granola for healthy snacking with the Nesco Express dehydrator. The patented 4-1/2"Diam fan forces heated air up through the exterior pressurized chamber, instead of through the trays. Since the air is forced horizontally across each individual tray, it converges on the core--resulting in fast, even and nutritious drying without flavor mixing. The fan and heater are conveniently top-mounted to be clear from drippings. The quietly powerful 500W/1200 rpm motor and fan is four times faster than convection dryers that have no fan or motor. The Vita-Save exterior is opaque to block light, helping to retain more food nutrients and vitamins during the drying process. There's no need to rotate the trays, because the drying pressure automatically adjusts as the unit expands up to 12 trays high. Food releases easily from the trays. Dehydrator comes with four trays. Thermostat adjusts from 95F to 150F. This Pro really stacks up!

Unit measures 15-1/4" x 15-1/4" x 9-1/8". Power cord measures 52"L.

UL listed. 1-year Limited Manufacturer's Warranty.

Nesco Snackmaster Express Food Dehydrator is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This is my 2nd dehydrator. I love the fact that this one has a fan and dries herbs much faster than my old one, which had heat elements on the bottom and no fan. A unit with a fan is not quiet, but well worth having; just put the unit in another room if it bothers you. The Nesco Snackmaster has now opened up the capability for me to dehydrate fruit, mushrooms and some vegetables, instead of having to pay high grocery prices for the dried products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Waste Your Time Now, I have to admit, I've never had a dehydrator before, so maybe my expectations were off, but this is one of the worst products I've ever purchased. I did a test dry on 2 bananas (sliced) and after 12 hours they still were not dry. Yes, for those of you who will ask, I used the specified heat settings and time and still got these awful results. For those of you who are thinking about using this in your house, be prepared for the noise. It makes a constant noise, similar to the microwave always being on. If that is a noise you can live with, or if you have plenty of time (days) to wait for your food to dry, then maybe you will like this better than I did. I purchased this product to save money and have dried fruit snacks for my family, but the money I spent in electricity running this thing for 12 hours would have been better spent paying for a package of dried fruit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG This is the BEST! I have an older dehydrator and now just bought this one. This Nesco dried my jerky in half the time! I love it! I fully recommend it! Thank you.
