whoops I mean leaving the dehydrator on(but you know what I mean by now)
I have bean searching here but cant find anything,how safe is it to leave it on when you go out etc, I have had mine on since yesterday and I was just wondering about saftey, Im not good with electrical stuff, I jinx things and they just seem to drop dead on me, and since Im using this dryer thingy so much I dont want to have any disasters.

When I first bought my dehydrator, I rang the company I bought it off and asked them the same thing. They told me it was perfectly safe to leave on when you're out so thats what I do. They also suggested buying a timer thing that you plug into your electrical socket and then plug the dehydrator into that so you can get it to turn off when you're not at home.
Hope this helps.

Yes , its generally safe (unless the cord is damaged and wire is exposed ) ,but to be TOTALLY SAFE you might try keeping all paper items away from the "dryer" , actually keep the general dryer area uncluttered .......dryer is shorter to type that the other option :p

This question has come up previously. For me, I leave my dehydrator on as long as I've got something in it to dry. I have an Excalibur 9-tray ~ with a timer.

thanks you guys, I did ring the supplier but he didn't seem to know, he just said they'd never had any problems,( he imports them from America)
the idea of the plug in timer is great, I do have one of those so I will give it a try, I never thought of that, and yep dryer is quicker to type, and Im not good at spelling either so it works for me :) If I ever bought another dryer I would try the big sqaure ones, the one I have seems really good, but its not quite as practicle as some of you have, its round, but I have since learnt you can get extender thingys that extend the spaces between each layer so that will help, it cost about 115 british pounds and I thought that was a lot at the time for something I didn't think I would use much, but little was I to know I would get hooked on trying new ideas and recipes and have it going day and night.
