Nesco/American Harvest Dehydrator & Jerky Maker is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not purchase this! I bought this a couple years ago, and have only used it a half doezen times to make jerky. I have carefully cleaned it and put it back in the original box to store it each time I’ve used it. Today the motor just stopped working, and it is no longer under warranty. Definitely not worth the money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unhappy I bought this item for a christmas present for my husband. I was quite disappointed when I got home from work and had this item on my kitchen table in the box from the manufacturer. I was quite upset because it was not in a QVC box, so my husband knew it was his christmas gift. If I had known when I ordered this that it was coming from the manufacturer and not QVC, I probably would of had other options on where to send this itme. Beware, if its a christmas present, don't order from QVC unless they tell you it's coming from them!!! So disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dryest Taters When I first got this item, I was skeptical. I had no idea how to use it and just stored it up in the cabinet. It doesn't come with specific directions on how to use with every fruit / veggie. I wanted it for sweet taters. I didn't know how long, etc. Well, I just pulled it back out because cooking the potatoes in my microwave ruined it and I had to purchase a new one. Well, still not knowing what to do, I sliced the taters and put them on the trays. I set it on 145 degrees and let it cook them for 12 hours while I slept. The next morning, they were fully dehydrated and my puppy LOVES them!!! So thankful to this dehydrator to save my microwave now. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome! I'm really impressed with how easy and fast this works. I use it mostly for herbs, and to dehydrate onions, carrots and mushrooms for those days i need some quick for a recipe , dips or sauces. Saves me a ton of time in the summer drying herbs. Also great to stock up on fresh veggys when they're on sale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from could be better. Unit is small and convenient, but it dries uneven. I also don't like the fact there is no power switch. It really isn't a hard feature to add. Overall it does the job, but not nearly as well as my neighbor's excalibur that led me to buy one for myself. Everyone's needs and budget will vary though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE MY DEHYDRATOR I purchased this dehydrator a couple of months ago and I use it at least 2 times a week. I make jerky for my family and also treats for our dog that has allergies. I have enjoyed trying new marinades. Very, very satisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Takes forever I bought this for my daughter for Christmas, even paid $15.00 extra to have it arrive in time. The first time she used it, it took 9 hours to crisp up some veggie slices and the last time I spoked with her she had to turn up the heat beacuse the veggie turned into rubber (not crispy). I believe this item is going back . She can crisp veggies in her oven in and hour and a half. She is very disappointed with my gift to her, and so am I.
