Salton Food Dehydrator

I got my dehydrator at a garage sale of all things! The gal used it once to make beef jerky and said it was to much trouble so I ended up paying $5 for it and I love it!

I have made dried fruit with it several times now. All I do is cut up the fruit, banana and apples are favorites, dip them in lemon concentrate and go instantly to the tray so they don't get to much lemon flavor. It just keeps them from turning brown. Once in a while I shake a bit of cinnamon or other spice over the fruit to make it taste really yummy and different. All it takes is 24hrs depending on the thickness of the slices and they should be done! Sometimes more, sometimes less. Just make sure to move the trays around and turn them so that one spot doesn't burn and the others hardly dry at all. It is really a good thing to have one. I cant wait to try the beef jerky recipe I was given. That is the first thing I do when I use the dehydrator again. It's awesome.

It's a Salton DH1000A.

Trays cracked after first use NEW
by: Anonymous

The engine is nice and quiet and I like the design, but the trays are incredibly fragile. 4 of the 5 cracked the first time I used it and put the slightest pressure on the fruit I was flattening down.. One of them is now so damaged (after 3 uses) that it crumbled in my hand. I guess this was not designed to last -- looks like a disposable dehydrator. I don't know if I want to go to the expense of buying more trays only to have them fall apart on me again. If you purchase it, handle the trays with EXTREME CARE!!

by: Sandy H

I've had mine for 2 months and now the trays are falling apart from the heat. I can hear them cracking when the unit is drying tomatoes. I will never buy one again!

Cool NEW
by: Janice

I bought a dehydrator a few months back and I don't use it as much, but when I do, I absolutely love it. I make my own supply of fruits and bag them and snack on them everyday.

10 - 12 hour jerky? NOT NEW
by: Anonymous

I just purchased a salton dehydrator. In the manual it says it takes 10-12 hours for jerky. I marinated my jerky and put it in at 160 degrees yesterday at 1 pm. Its now 1pm the following day and my jerky is still soft. The strips are less than 1/4 inch think... Starting to think not such a good investment for jerky, maybe ok for fruit but havent tried it yet.

No noise
by: Alex

It's probably quiet because there's no fan. The fan is the noisemaker in the Excalibur. But the fan is also what makes them dry so much faster. According to the review above, it took 24 hours finish the jerky with the Salton.

Is it quiet?
by: Anonymous

I just bought a Salton dehydrator, and am drying figs from my tree. But it makes *no* noise, and maybe, maybe feels slightly warm on the bottom. Is this normal, or is it not working properly? THanks!

I bought mine at a yard sale too for $5, making jerky for the first time as I type this, wonder how long it will take ? 8hrs?

Lid closed
by: Alex (dehydratorbook)

Keep it closed. The warm air will escape otherwise, forcing the dehydrator to run longer.
