Nesco American Harvest FD-61WHC Snackmaster
(Las Vegas, NV)
Ever since I was young I have always been in love with beef jerky. It's texture, taste, everything is amazing about it. That's solely why I bought the Nesco American Harvest FD-61WHC Snackmaster.
It has several loading trays so if you want you can put in more than your average dehydrator permits. I can fit about a pound and a half of meat in there. It also has a flattening device perfect for people like me who have bought it mainly for the wonders it does to beef.
The best thing about it though is that it wasn't expensive and it makes better jerky than a $10 pack at Walmart has ever tasted. I've tried several different flavors and I have yet to find one that doesn't beat store brand jerky hands down. It also makes great slim jims with a given contraption that shapes the meat into a tube. I have also tried apricots and apples and all taste perfect.
This machine is quiet, it's built strong and never gets dirty, overall it's the perfect dehydrator. It also comes with a recipe guide with a ton of great ideas if this is your first dehydrator.
If not, well then I would honestly suggest this because it is perfect for both professional and beginner alike.
