Agree with the Excalibur Dehydrator.  I retired the nesco and upgraded to one of those.  I just dried 15lbs of habs a few months ago with mine.  Works awesome.


I dry mine whole, as I've heard if you cut them it will let some of the flavor/capsaicin out.  I use a ninja to grind them, even grind them inside.  The family has gotten used to about once a month fumes in the house, they just stay out of the kitchen for awhile.

I have the Excaliber dehydrator not as fancy as the one shown but 9 shelves and a fan does a good job..however I also have a piolet ligh in my oven so I use that when I have a lot ..remember to not turn oven on till you remove spices..lol..I was using my bullet to grind because it sealed the powder inside till it settled and with lids made for good storage..do like the power griner though ..might get one..also use the little silcone bags they sell on Amazon to keep the moisture out..
