Thanks for the welcome!
I keep looking at them, but never knew what I would use it for. What do you do with the dried lemon slices?

Never mind! I should have kept reading! Intriguing!

I add dried lemon slices to water and to chicken when baking. Yum!

I really am intrigued. If I get my community garden plot this year, I'll likely get a dehydrator. My grandmothers both used dehydration a lot.

Thanks! I have found that it takes a lot longer than I thought. I made fruit leather and it was about a 6 hour project and wasn't completely done. I haven't used it again. I hope to use it more in the summer. Right now, there isn't much produce. I am interested in making jerky and am looking forward to that.

I have yet to find any recipes for kale chips, and my sweet potato chips turned more into...well, sweet potato grafts. Would you mind sharing those particular recipes? Thanks!

I love my Exclaiber and my nesco by the way. The nesco is useful for doing smaller amounts...

I had an Excalibur but gave it away to use my vintage Farberware Turbo oven.



I bought several sets of these SS drying tray to use in it.



It dries better, faster, and more evenly -- and you have temperature control. When you are done you can bake a pie, or put a roast in for dinner.
