I have the nine tray exalibur dehydrator. Love it. We have used it for making jerky but in winter I use oven as it helps warm up the den and kitchen a bit more as hubby gets cold easy. We dehydrate veggies fruit and herbs in it from garden. Going to try to dehydrate frozen mixed veggies in it after I get the closets finished. I have watched them on u-tube do it and it is a great idea. For making soups and such.
