I cannot stress enough how wonderful this little gem is, especially how quiet the motor runs, even for a home kitchen. Would highly recommend this steal of a deal!!!
I 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.
This 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!
I 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...
Excellent product. I purchased this because of the mechanical timer and temperature knobs. My previous dryer was essentially the same with an electronic control pad which burned out after two years of use. This unit has easy to clean trays and works very well on all foods. Highly recommended. Also, replacement parts are available from Webstaurantstore.com.
