Nesco-American Harvest makes some fine low-cost dehydrator units for beginners, which are expandable in case you decide to process larger quantities of food as you progress in food dehydration. These are ideal for those who want a lot of space for a reasonable amount of money. Each unit includes a recipe book.
L'Equip Dehydrators include a generous warranty and are also expandable. Excalibur Dehydrators are among the more popular units we carry; these are excellent for jerky and fruit leathers, are well built, and have three sizes to choose from.
