    I have had this product for a little over 6 months and have begun to notice the coating on the trays is starting to come off. i see small signs of rust. So i'm not really sure how much longer i will be able to use them.

    Fantastic, dehydrator been using it everyday since we got it,we did beef jerky, bananas, peaches, apples, pineapple, it works unbelievable been dehydrating for 30 years, went through 6 dehydrators this is the best one I've ever used.
    This unit looks great, but we are completely disappointed by its functionality. We prepare and sell premium dehydrated dog treats. We have been using multiple Excalibur 3926TW 9-Tray Electric Food Dehydrators, which work quite well, but thought it would be worthwhile to upgrade to a larger commercial dehydrator. It has been a disaster. The Weston 28-0501-W has a maximum temperature of 160 degrees. Reaching that maximum temperature, let alone maintain that temperature, has been impossible. Even after relocating the Weston 28-0501-W to a room with an ambient temperature of 78 degrees, the problems persisted. These problems were exacerbated by the fact that the Weston 28-0501-W heats in an extremely uneven fashion -- both front to back and from top to bottom. Even doubling the time required by our less expensive Excalibur dehyrators, rearranging trays from top to bottom and front to back during the dehydration process, and reducing the number of racks in use from the 24 rack capacity to 12 racks did little to help. The result has been vastly uneven, and we've been forced to revert to the less expensive Excalibur units to meet our production requirements. We are sadly disappointed. Read Less Read More
    We appreciate your feedback! We’re sorry this is defective. A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you soon.
    First off what a great price for this dehydrator. I dehydrate a lot of meat and so far this has been lovely. The racks are a little close together so some of the meat is which and touches the racks depending on what I am putting in there. But all I have to do is skip a row and its fine. It heats evenly and does a great job on the meat. Its a pain in the butt to clean, but I'm sure ill figure out a better solution one day. Overall great deal
    Best dehydrator to buy. it is easy to use and an easy to read screen. Not hard to put to the wheels on witch makes it easy to move around if needed.
    After receiving this machine.. my production have grown due to the fact that it hold more meat.. I really like the way it operates.. it's simple and straight forward.. I will be ordering another soon
    We LOVE this dehydrator. We use it in a 'non-conventional" way. We use it as a small proofer in our bakery. It's very durable and well built. We would buy this again!
