Weston dehydrators, Any one using one more specifically this one?

Don't get me wrong, our convection oven works great but no one can stand the kitchen when I start drying peppers.

I have a 5 tray Weston Dehydrator been using since last season, it is blacl and the unit is square.  I like it better than my 4 tray Nesco because I can set a timer and the heat temp goes a bit higher but I dont usually dry anything above 150F

 

Sorry I dont have any experience with this massive Weston unit you are linking too.  I wish my grow was that big that I needed one like that!  lol

 

cheers!

If that's the style you like you may not need such a large one, have you seen this? http://www.cabelas.c...wE&gclsrc=aw.ds

 

I figure you are going for that style because of the fumes, and it should help since the front closes like a fridge, but not sure if it escapes from anywhere else. Cap is sneaky. I'm not sure who has one here, maybe JHP?


:cheers:

I have as close to thoroughly as I can reviewed the dehydrators mentioned in this thread as well as a few others. I feel the Weston I initially inquired about will best suit my needs and requirements. Thanks to all involved for all the input and recommendations.

I will also be doing large quantities of meat and vegetable products. I am a huge fan of anything jerky.

Probably does. Will be easier to vent than the household oven though. May have to take it down stairs as an air freshener to the grow room.

One of the problems I have with store name appliances is someone else makes them, that may be good or it may be bad. I cannot verify who that is in this case.

Whereas I have good experience with Weston products.
