    Default Aldi: $19.99 food dehydrator

    Aldi has a Crofton food dehydrator on special buy thru 7-21 for $19.99. It is the round type. I don't know anything about this dehydrator, as I already have an Excalibur, but I thought someone who wanted to try dehydrating without investing a lot of money might be interested. They also have a food processor for $18.99

    Thanks so much for sharing this deal -- I have the Excalibur now, but definitely believe it's best to try a less expensive model first to see if it's something you want to continue before investing a lot of money. This is a great price, and hopefully someone here at FV will be able to take advantage of it!

    That sounds like a wonderful idea! It'd still be a great deal, even if you had to tack on shipping.

    Sounds like a great price.......don't know anything about that brand. Would probably be something on-line for someone that wanted to check it out.

    Being new to food drying, I opted to buy the Crofton Food Dehydrator offered at Aldi's. Since beef jerky is one of my favorites, it was a logical first choice. Although I over-dried the beef slightly, the result was a tasty and perfectly acceptable jerky. I can see where the round design of the unit might restrict its use for certain drying projects but as a beginner, I am impressed with the unit and considering the attractive sale price would recommed it for the casual user.

    I got one too. It's your basic bottom of the line model with an exposed heating element in the bottom and no fan to speed drying.

    I made two trays of jerky, which the booklet said could take 8-12 hours and it was done in about 7 hours. So I'd say it works fine, you just want to watch it the first time you use a recipe.

    I don't have the dehydrator but I have several Crofton small appliances and they have all worked quite well - well worth the price.

    the price was until 7/21, so what is the regular price? I didn't get a chance to get to Aldi to take advantage of the lower price.

    not sure about all the stores, but usually on things they get like that they just leave them the sale price until they run out. Or if they had alot they will get marked down more in a month or so.
