3 out of 3 found this review helpfulI ordered this unit after researching other brands of "commercial" dehydrators. I had visited to webstrauantstore.com to look at dehydrators and the site 'suggested' this model as an alternative to the one I was looking at. It was significantly more affordable, so I ordered the Avantco CFD10 dehydrator and have used it almost non-stop since it arrived. In short - a great dehydrator. The unit arrived on-time and in perfect condition. There was minimal assembly required - basically unpacking the unit, positioning the shelf supports and then sliding on the front door. Nice features - the door removes completely from the unit by sliding it up and pulling out - this allows it to be placed out of the way for loading, unloading and cleaning. The shelves are stainless wire racks with about 1/2 inch grid - a good size for all but the smallest items. The shelves slide in an rest on stainless rack supports that are easily removable and washed, along with the racks, in the dishwasher. When you remove the racks and the supports, the inside is very easy to clean. I've used the dehydrator for a variety of fruits, vegetables and jerky with excellent results. Temperature control is spot-on. The timer is a mechanical type timer, but is sufficient. Air flow through the unit appears to be excellent - while I normally attempt to rotate the racks during drying, I've missed a time or two without uneven drying. Operation is quiet. I've found the webstaurantstore.com also carries what appears to be all the parts for this model - should that ever be necessary. In short - I love it and may actually buy another...

2 out of 3 found this review helpfulI love this product! I have many, many friends who dehydrate. They all boast on their Excaliber dehydrators. I tell them that they missed the boat. Excaliber is so expensive and this Avantco dehydrator is so affordable and yet has 10 racks, a very simple door that is easy to open and close and temperature control high enough to dehydrate meats! Once I fell in love with this product, I bought a stainless cart for it and the combination is perfect for my in-home use. I have dehydrated tomato skins for making tomato powder, bananas, bananas ,bananas, herbs, celery, and peppers. I also use it as a proofing box, and have used it to set my ferments on and around to keep them at a warm and constant temp. All worked well. It is easy to clean. The racks are easily removable. The fan is quiet and the unit doesn't get too hot. I recommend this dehydrating unit to many people. It is comparable to Excaliber in function, and much less expensive.
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulI ordered this unit about a month ago. I have already ran 135lbs of jerky through it and it has performed flawlessly. It dries at an almost perfect even rate. You might have to take a tray out and rotate it, but that is no problem at all. It is the best dehydrator i have ever used and the price places it at second to none for its size. The only thing wish could be changed is--- it was twice the size, even if it was twice the price. It would still be hands down best.
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulThis dehydrator has a lot of room inside, is very quiet and very easy to clean, but does not dehydrate food very fast. I have been doing apples for over a week and the Avantco takes twice as lone as my excalibur 600 watt dehydrator 9 tray. The fan seems to produce very little air movement and the 1000 watt heating element seems to cycle very often. It does ok on very small loads but when full loaded it is very slow. I love many of its features but it just does not dehydrate the food very fast.
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulI love the avantco stainless steel dehydrators (#177CFD10) . WORKS AWESOME. and easy to clean I use it for jerky mainly but have dehydrated hot peppers too. No complaints. Very impressed.
1 out of 1 found this review helpfulThis stainless steel food dehydrator is everything we were looking for. It heats up fast and is easy to clean. The ten racks allows us to dehydrate multiple items at once. This dehydrator is a must have!
This unit gets the work done. Very quiet, lots of shelf space. Does a beautiful ob on jerky and the stainless grates are easy to clean.
This dehydrator is pretty heavy duty for the price, works efficiently and maintains a steady temperature throughout use time. We've used to dehydrate fruits and herbs.
We purchased this dehydrator to take the place of 3 non-commercial units. We're constantly dehydrating fruits & veggies for storage on a year-round basis. This unit is incredibly quiet with tons of space and very easy to clean. Another unexpected bonus: It actually puts out far less ambient heat than other dehydrators we've had in the past. While it is very warm to the touch, it is not so hot as to burn. Having feet keeps it off the countertop as well. We were also specifically looking for 'non-digital' controls, as they tend to wear out much too fast. The temp and timer dials on this model were perfect. The grid size in the racks themselves proved to be too large for many of our needs... we dry a lot of herbs, berries and smaller diced veggies. We made screens for our trays using stainless window screen found at a hardware store. These give the added benefit of being able to 'roll them up' and slide the dried ingredients directly into a mason jar - similar to a funnel. The only change/upgrade I would hope for: a small 'rim' or curved edge to the trays themselves would help to prevent 'round' fruits and veggies (berries, peas, etc.) from rolling off the trays. If not for this - I'd give it 6 (yes, six!) stars. Excellent purchase - we will probably end up ordering a second unit. Hope this helps. Read Less Read More
Good value. Basic dehydrator. Easy set up. Slow operation. Does the job. It is price discordantly. The trays are not ideal for flat results but works.
This is a great value and the perfect first for my jerky making needs after hunting season ends. It is nice that this dehydrator will heat to 160, so it is safer on the ground meat jerky I like to make. With a quick initial setup, I had the machine ready to use within an hour of unpacking. The only recommendation I have is to buy some sheets or screens if you plan to make ground meat jerky as the racks have wide spacing on them. Otherwise, I have no complaints about this and expect to get a long life out of it!
I bought this instead of a Cabela brand I was looking at and have been very pleased. It is for home use. I use it for deer jerky and fruit snacks mostly and really appreciate not having to rotate the trays like I did with the round dehydrator I had before where all the heat came up from the bottom. Clean up is a lot easier too but I do use the drying sheets. They are a must for smaller items like berries and especially when making jerky from ground meat as it would fall through the wire racks. All in all I have been very pleased with the machine.
worked fine until after ~20 batches it stopped working. The timer, fan, and heat coil stopped working, I assume it is a timer switch problem or power supply problem. I checked all the wiring for loose connections which didn't change anything.Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry this did not work well for you.

Pretty quiet. Good size for use on a counter. There is rattle (it is a steel box with a fan spinner), but you can mitigate it by pulling on the feet to create a bit of tension in the unit. its not insulated, but the sides do not get very hot. You will want to use dryer mesh for smaller items as the racks have holes that are just under 1". All this and a great price. A perfect addition to our equipment inventory.
I received this unit last week, and I think I got a lot for the money, especially when comparable units can go for a lot more money. It was easy to assemble, ready to use from the box in about 10 minutes-- including recommended run-in time. The results I have obtained drying sliced tomatoes are very satisfying, and so with the peppers I've dried, with one caveat: the mesh size of the racks is about 3/4", so the CFD10 is simply incompatible with small foods like tabasco peppers out of the box. I have three small-mesh cooling racks that happen to fit inside, but you may not be so lucky. You WILL have to purchase small-mesh screens to overlay these racks to dry smaller foods, and that's why I gave it four out of five stars. Nowhere in the product listing is the rack mesh size mentioned. It should be.
I ordered this for my chocolate store since I wanted to dehydrate my own fruits.I love the fact that I can pack a whole lot of fruits in it.But some of the stuff I like Mexican mangoes,took almost 3 days to fully dry which I felt was ridiculous!But the other small fruit like strawberries dried in the required time.Not fully impressed with how fast it dries stuff but it’s a decent machine. It’s very easy to clean,sturdy and very easy to assemble.
We have had the Avantco Dehydrator for over a week now and it works impressively well for our function. The heating element is very large so it manages to dehydrate all but the very top and very bottom rack very evenly. We load right at ten pounds of jerky in it at a time and about and hour and a half in rotate them front to back a single time and this had worked excellent so far. Compared to our others this one is the best. We plan on ordering about three more of them in the near future
This Food Dehydrator is perfect for dehydrating meringue, fruit garnishes, and anything else that you may need to dehydrate. The stainless steel finish makes it easy to clean and looks great in any commercial kitchen!
This dehydrator has more than paid for itself in one season. We have dried everything from corn and blueberries to zucchini and pears, and it was running the entire time our garden was producing. Combined with a vacuum sealer from Webstaurant, lots of extra bags, and oxygen absorbing packs, it allowed us to enjoy our garden all winter long.
The Avantco CFD10 Ten Rack Stainless Steel Food Dehydrator with Removable Door - 1000W is a great option for drying mushrooms, herbs and fruits for storage and selling at farmer's markets.
