I have been wanting one for a long time, never tried this before. What does everyone think of them? I remember reading somewhere before that the "home made" stuff is better then bought dehydrated foods...what does everyone think?

How much do they normally cost to purchase?

Any other info you can give me would be appreciated.

The prices vary from quite reasonable to the higher end. I really enjoy mine a lot. There are tons of things you can do with them. There are a few really good books out there on all the amazing stuff. I use mine a lot to rise my bread dough. I have an Excalibur that you can remove the shelves and put in the dough to rise.

I just lent mine to my bff and she dehyrated some flowers from her mothers funeral. She was doing it in the microwave at first. It would have taken her forever.

There is so much I have not tried yet that I want to. One of them is to make homemade yogurt. The fruit rollups are always a hit at my house along with the jerky.

The Dehydrator bible by Jennifer Mackenzie, Jay Nutt and Don Mercer

Mary Bell's Complete Dehydrator Cookbook is another good one.

I just got an Excalibur dehydrator for Christmas. I'm still experimenting with it. Never thought to use it to rise my bread....hhmmm...
It even has a setting for it. Mine is in the yellow setting 110 degrees.
