Healthy & tasty snacks with my Sunbeam dehydrator

published

I love my new Sunbeam dehydrator. This batch: pineapple, navel orange, mango and Royal Gala apples. Healthy and tasty snacks with no added chemicals. Yum! Lots of fun experimenting as well.

This is perfect for jerky or zucchini chips

published

Have been using this to make keto snacks at home, saving myself a fortune on packaged snacks. Very easy to use and to clean, I prefer the design compared to the traditional circular dehydrators

Awesome for my need

published

I bought this to make Jerky and am positively wrapped with this purchase. Tried fruit but l wasn't interested, not dehydrators fault. I used to buy cheap stuff to see if l wanted more, YES, l did.

Awesome for Cake Decorators

published

I have owned this dehydrator for 6 months and as a a hobby cake decorator, I don't know how I have lived without it in my life. Sugar flowers used to take days to make & now I'm making full blooms in hours.
Only thing, not a fan of the slide up & out door to access inside.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $199.

Great item to have!

published

We’ve had this product for well over a year and made multiple amounts of jerky, that have turned out great. I’ve also made crackers and fruit which has come out good too. Only issue is with the racks, hard to clean and are not dishwasher safe. Apart from that, definitely worthy of a spot in the kitchen!

Purchased at Myer Online Store.

Not a good experience

published

I bought two of these units and the weak plastic trays keep snapping in half. If your doing fruits or jerky you'll be fine but no soft offal or dog bones. The round dehydrators are more solid with stronger plastic making them more durable. I've had to source two stainless steel things to form a tray because 6 are damaged. I did talk to sunbeam about a replacement for one cracked/broken tray but I was treated like an idiot. You are treated like you're being an inconvenience to them.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman for $180.

Only used 3 times and now it won't heat

published

Got this from Harvey Norman in New Zealand. First couple of times was fine although I still noticed periods where it was cold. Now the heater refuses to work altogether. Have wasted my time trying to dry fruit a few times now. This must be a faulty unit. Am returning to Harvey Norman.

Hi Tony, this one definitely must have slipped through the cracks. Yes please return to store for a replacement and you will be able to dry your fruit successfully...

Exactly what I wanted/expeted

published

Well priced and does beef jerky a treat. I do not bother to rotate shelves just set and forget, come back 10 hours later and have great jerky. Just put in first batch of fish Jerky and that has come up great. Only thing that would make it superb would be dish washable shelves.

Good value

published

Had done a brief research before buying this product. It's around $60 cheaper than other famous brands while on sale. I like the fact that it has 6 racks so I can as much as I can for each time. Had made dried fruits mainly and the noise is not bad at all. Will recommend this product to friends.

Very Happy

published

I researched dehydration machines in detail and was impressed with the Sunbeam due to its size and abilities.
My main use is for Beef Jerky which after a couple of trials with diferent meats and flavourings I have mastered the art and the kids are more than happy.
Do yourself a favour and buy one you would think be disappointed.

They almost got it right

published

the User Guide says Maximum Time Setting is 19.5 Hours
It won't actually allow more than 10 Hours. Annoying to have to cool it down for 2 Hours, then start again. I bought his particular Model on the basis of the advertised settings. Is there a hardware/firmware fix for this, or do I just have a faulty Unit?
Disappointing.

LOVE

published

Purchased from Harvey Norman who were kind enough to price Myer for me and have had mine for about a week now. So far I've made crunchy chickpeas, banana chips, kale chips and dried apples. I really love the ease of use, it's pretty quiet and fairly easy to clean. Just set the timer and temperature and go! A great way to make tasty and healthy snacks and preserve food.

Can you use baking paper with this dehydrator to keep small food items from falling through the huge holes? I want to dehydrate diced vegetables so they are ready to throw in soups and stews, but the holes on this dehydrator are huge.

I haven't tried baking paper but I only dry fruit at 60deg and you can eat it straight out of the dryer so baking paper would be ok at this temp

I have used it to dehydrate apricots. 14hrs at 60 they still feel tacky/sticky should I do it longer. once you do it and allow too cool down is it ok to do it a few more hrs. They do not look like the shop ones so hard to compare, I know they use preservatives and Sulphur. thanks in advance.
