Just wanted to pass along my experience with food
dehydrators this weekend in case there is anyone out there on the verge of
I’ve had my American Harvest Snackmaster Elite for
several years now and it’s been the only one I’ve ever used up
until this weekend. I purchased a Ronco dehydrator at a yard sale recently and
used both dehydrators to dry a bushel of tomatoes. The Ronco doesn’t
hold a candle to the American Harvest. The AH has a fan that circulates
the warm air up through the middle and around the edges which makes it a much
more even distribution of air so the ones on the bottom aren’t more dry
than the ones on top. The Ronco doesn’t have a fan, just a heating coil.
I had to reverse the order of the trays frequently and, after almost 48 hours
of drying, I moved the remaining pieces over to the Snackmaster (which had
completed its job the day before). The Ronco is simply just not as efficient.
That’s just been my experience with these two
dehydrators. I would definitely choose the American Harvest again!
