View Full Version : Dehydrating Virgin
01-20-2005, 08:50 PM
I've read a lot of posts about what kind of dehydrator to buy and am investigating my options.
However, what do you all think a beginner should start with? Something very simply, obviously, but does anyone have any full-proof ideas that would make me jump up and down and hug the unit when I was finished?

What a title -- ha! I would suggest getting the best dehydrator you can afford. If not, you'll be wanting to upgrade long before your first one konks out! I'm using my roommate's American Harvest which is just okay, but I secretly wish it would break so I could justify buying an Excalibur! ;)

When I was a dehydrator virgin (LMAO) I went with what I could afford which is the American Harvest Snackmaster and so far, I love it! It works like a charm. It gets the job done. Now if I plan to become a dehydrating "madame" - doing lots of breads and pizza dough and stuff - then I might consider a better model.
If you have the money for the Excalibur, than go for it. :)

I would suggest the Excalibur. I have had mine about 1 month. I love it.

Hmmmmm. So many decisions for this Virgin. :D I'd like to get into dehydrating now, but I don't know if I'd spring for the Excalibur this early in the game. Perhaps I'll try the less expensive model for now and graduate when I feel I am ready. I'll see what I can talk hubby into. ;)
Madame, indeed. LOL!!!!

This thread title immediately made me think of the practice of sacrificing virgins, but rather than burning them at the stake (or whatever was the cutomary method of sacrifice) putting them on the trays in a giant dehydrator and shriveling them up into dried virgins. It's actually kind of a gross image. :D
And to put this more on-topic, I don't have any reccomendations. :D I myself have a cheap dehydrator and it works fine, but I don't use it very much.

I have a wonderful Nesco that was less than $50.00 I have also had the American
Harvest. Both get the job done and I love both of them.
