I can give you some action!  Come on over and you can dehydrate all my food
for our '96 hikes!  Then you'll have some dehydrator know-how! Hands on is
best, ya know.

I have an American Harvester bought at a discount store.  It has four trays.
 It came with one of those solid tray inserts things that you can make fruit
rollups on.  I bought another package of 2 of those as fruit rollups are a
favorite of mine.  The instructions for making these are usually included
with the dehydrator.

I don't know much about the differences in dehydrators.  I don't think there
really are any except maybe capacity.  You can also dry meat for jerky in
your oven at it's lowest temperature. I have done this once or  twice before
I had the dehydrator.  I prefer the dehydrator though.  I think mine cost
about $40-45, plus the extras.
