Nesco Gardenmaster Food Dehydrator
The FD-1018A Gardenmaster Dehydrator features 1,000-watts of drying power that generates maximum speed and quality for dehydrating fruits, vegetables, herbs and jerky.
A quiet, 2,400-RPM motor and specially designed 4 1/2-inch fan mean faster, more nutritious drying. An adjustable 95-160°F thermostat provides the flexibility to achieve the best results when drying foods at different temperatures.
The Converga-Flow drying system forces air up and across the trays, converging in the center for fast, even and nutritious drying. There is no flavor mixing and no need to rotate trays.
The opaque Vita-Save exterior is designed to block light which helps retain more of the food's nutrients and vitamins during the drying process. Cover and trays are dishwasher safe.
The FD-1018A GardenMaster Dehydrator comes with eight trays and can expand up to 30 trays. Includes eight Fruit Roll-up Sheets, eight Clean-a-Screens, one recipe instruction book and one NESCO Original Jerky Spice pack with cure. (Additional Trays sold separately)
