Babetoo, The biggest thing I learned about the dehydrator is you don't have to fill it up. We bought three giant red pears. tried one of them and it wasn't ripe. I took the mandoline and sliced the other two up and put them in the dehydrator. They took up two shelves.
They came out beautiful and were a lot sweeter.
I could have kicked myself !! Had Dehyrator all these years and didn't use it much because it was so much work to fill it up ( duh)

Janet, I just love that idea.......thanks.
