Very happy with this dehydrator. I’ve been using it heaps over the last 2 years to dry sugar cookies. My only negative Is that the trays stack, if you aren’t 130% careful you can stack them wrong causing damage to the cookies on the lower racks.
For $40 I couldn’t be happier.

If I could give this product 0 I would. The manual says 8 hours for thinly sliced tomatoes. After close to 24 hours I gave up, put the machine in its box and took it back to ALDI for a refund. I tried apples and apricots with just as much success. The problem is it just doesn't get to temperature.
Purchased in December 2019 for A$90.00.

I'd love to make this work
I've tried every way I can think of to dry lemons - sliced thick, thin, wedges, peeled, unpeeled, 70 degrees, 55 degrees, but they just end up sticky and look like they'll go mouldy very quickly i.e. not dry enough, even after 17 hours. Feel like they'll still need freezing, not really the point. Don't want to keep using all that electricity unless I know it's worthwhile. If anyone can help me get the rating up to 5* or even 3* I'd be extremely grateful.
Another example of Aldi Cheap as Chips electrical items
I thought what could possible go wrong with set of stacking containers sitting on a heating element and a fan...
It was been a couple of years since I last tried using this item and considered that perhaps I had been a lille to premature in my judgment of it and how long it took to produce anything so to be fair I gave it another go, My memory must be failing me because after two complete 17 hour cycles trying bananas, Mangoes and Muscatel grapes I can only conclude that life is too short and electricity is too expensive to experiment any further, so into the dumpster this heap of rubbish goes.
Much used and much loved
I have been using this dehydrator for the past two years. It's easy to use, easy to clean and still looks nearly brand new. I've used it for jerky, herbs, fruit, vegetables and just about anything else I could think of. The time and temperature are both adjustable, as is the number of shelves. Not a thing wrong with it!
downgrade from 4 to 1 stars
I gave this 4 stars in 2015. Two years later the trays have cracked and broken. I'm not hard on my appliances so it is a quality issue. I was careful about not putting in hot dishwasher etc. I suspect that regardless of this make the issue will be the same for brands with the same fabrication.
Does the job well
This Food Dehydrator cost $40 from Aldi. I have use it four times. I have dried, prune plums, peaches, nectarines and figs and it has worked worked well. It is not noisy. I am so far, really pleased with this product. I am still experimenting with this product and the suggested times for dehydration.
This is the newer model kys336D
Wow this is the bees knees I'm loving the simplicity of use just slice what ever you want to dry and set the time and turn the trays a couple of time during the drying process and you have lovely dried fruit and veg does the best dried orange slices great for the festive season and it is a very affordable unit and has a 3 yr warranty
