Ever since I saw the Ronco Dehydrator I wanted to try it. So when a relative gifted our family this Dehydrator I figure I review it. There are several models of Ronco Dehydrators. This one has 5 trays and plugs into the outlet.
The bottom of the Ronco Dehydrator is made of white plastic. It has a low heater source that dehydrates fruits and vegetables. Then you have 5 trays that stack on top of each other with a lid on top. The trays have an opening in the middle which distributes the heat to dehydrate the fruits and vegetables.
The first thing you have to do is use lemon juice to keep your vegetables from browning. Then you set the vegetable in the tray not overlapping them. Then you just plug the cord in and off you go. You do have to rotate the trays as well as change up the line up after a certain time. Since you have to do this all manually it ends up that some vegetables are more dried than others.
The Ronco Dehydrator works as advertised. A better dehydrator would probably automate the drying process. Since the Ronco is cheap you have to do it your self every couple of hours. At the end of the day this gets fruits and vegetables dehydrated for storage.
