Today's consumers lead eco-aware lifestyles. That includes making nutritious foods and snacks with efforts towards sustainability. And they're doing it with powerful Nesco/American harvest dehydrators. Call them the "green" machines. Now you can save money by making your own jerky, dried fruits, vegetable, trail mix and more. It means that you are not buying those foods in-store, with packages that end up in the landfills. That is sustainability; perfect for the times. Nesco builds the world's fastest, most even drying dehydrators. The Nesco FD-60 snackmaster express is sleek, contemporary design featuring top mounted fan and 500-watt of drying power for maximum speed and quality in dehydrating fruits, vegetables and jerky. Helps dry food in hours - not days like ordinary food dehydrators. It's patented converge-flow drying system forces air down the exterior pressurized chamber (not through the trays). The hot air is forced horizontally across each individual tray, converging in the core for fast, even and nutritious drying. No flavor mixing and no need to rotate trays. The adjustable thermostat allows user to dry different foods at the proper temperatures. Thermostat range of 95-to-155-degree Fahrenheit provides the flexibility to produce the best drying results. With the opaque vita-save exterior that helps block harmful light which destroys nutritional content of food being dehydrated. The FD-60 is packed with 4 trays, but is expandable to 12 trays. Includes fruit roll sheet and 2 original flavor jerky spice and cure packets.
These 12-3/4-inch screens (a set of two) can be inserted into the trays of Nesco American Harvest's FD-28JX, FD-35, FD-37, FD-39, FD-40, FD-50, FD-60, FD-61, FD-75A, FD-75PR food dehydrators (not compatible with other brand dehydrators) to prevent foods such as sugary fruits from sticking during the drying process. The fine-mesh screens are flexible, so they can be curled and foods simply peeled off. The screens are also useful for preventing small items such as herbs and spices from falling through the dehydrators' trays. As a bonus, they're dishwasher-safe.

In this post , I promised to go over pros and cons of the two food dehydrators I own: a Nesco™ and an Excalibur™. Both dehydrators are great and I'll start with the stackable Nesco™. Nesco™ Dehydrator Pros and Cons Pros:. • Can add as many trays as necessary. When you're first starting out, you may wish to opt for the model with the fewest trays for the cost factor. Due to the Nesco™s stackability, please be aware that you must not run the Nesco™ with any less than 4 trays. Four trays ensure enough height for proper warm-air circulation. If you find you love dehydrating (and why wouldn't you. ) you can purchase more trays online and expand your Nesco™ dehydrator's capacity. (If you only have enough food for two trays, simply insert another tray above and below one of the trays to make up the four tray total. The great part about being able to stack as many trays as you need is just that. This way, you won't be running your dehydrator with empty trays as could be the case with a fixed-amount-tray unit — you'll be drying just the amount you want to dry. On my Nesco™ dehydrator the temperature dial is right on the lid, making it very convenient to use. To start it, you simply plug it in. This is one of my peeves. If you're at all like me and don't like the idea of plugging something in and out of the wall socket to turn it on and off, then plug the dehydrator into a outlet strip first, and use the on/off switch on that. The Excalibur™ Dehydrator Pros and Cons Pros:. • Take out alternate trays for taller foods. • Use as a bread proofer. • Spend more and get a proper on/off switch, and timer. The Excalibur™ model I purchased was the "starter 4-tray" dehydrator. To access the trays, you lift out a very lightweight front flap and then you simply slide the trays out. Just like the Nesco™ model, this also only works by plugging it straight in and out of the wall socket — so use the outlet idea here too. If you opt for a pricier Excalibur™, you will more than likely find that they did include a proper on/off switch-along with a timer — now that's handy. After you've filled your dehydrator in the morning, the timer will turn the machine off later on — if you're at work or out shopping or digging in the garden. Another great use for the Excalibur™ is as a bread-proofer. Yes, you can use it to raise your bread dough. Take out the top trays, leave the lower one in. At the very bottom of the dehydrator, partially fill a foil pan with clean water. Put in your bread dough on top of the lower tray in its baking pan, cover the bread with a cloth to keep the dough from drying out. A 4-tray dehydrator is fine for proofing hot dog buns, but for a loaf of bread. A 9-tray unit is better suited as you'll get the required height to proof a full loaf. A pro for Excalibur™ dehydrators is the ability to take out alternate trays. This is a great feature for foods that would otherwise get squashed between the trays such as broccoli and cauliflower florets which tend to be a bit on the "tall side. For either machine that doesn't have a built-in timer, consider purchasing a timer that is used for turning lamps on and off. If you know you're not going to be home on time to turn it off, the handy timer will do it for you. Dehydrator Accessories In my next post I'll go over some of the accessories available to both the Nesco™ and Excalibur™ electric dehydrators such as mesh screens that keep your dehydrator trays clean(er), and a tip or two on affordable accessory... Since December of 2010, Susan Gast has operated Easy Food Dehydrating , a website dedicated to dehydrating fresh fruits and vegetables, and cooked meats. Susan teaches you how to safely store your goodies too — for long-term food storage. Keep your food pantry full — whatever the reason or season. Having used both of these brands, about the best I can say for them, is they are sort of better than nothing. Neither one does a particularly good job, maybe if this is all you have every used you would be happy with them, but once you have used a good dehydrator, you quickly learn what poor excuses they are for a dehydrator. Want a good dehydrator, go online, get a plan, build it yourself. Source: www.motherearthnews.com
