I bought the book and built the dryer in 2007. The book has everything you need in it to built your food dryer. I have been drying herbs and tomatoes every year. The tomatoes are absolutely stunning! I grow my own tomatoes, pick them, slice them and dry them. (Two or three days of sunny weather) The only thing is that this dryer is big. It is difficult to move (the pane of glass is half the weight. If I were to do it again, I would make it 20% smaller. The trays are difficult to take through a door. I tried drying bananas, did not work for me. They turned brown, I should have used lemon juice as the books recommends. They were still eatable, but then they reabsorbed humidity, and it was time to throw them away. Anyhow, I could not recommend this book more.

I built and have used this dehydrator for about the last 5-6 years. Downloading directions again so I can build another. It works great. I mostly dehydrate bananas, apples and tomatoes, although I've tried just about everything else I can get out of the garden. Bananas are cheap to buy, and taste incredible when dried. I dry tomatoes and then pack them in olive oil as sun dried - great for cooking. Granny Smith apples last all winter in my garage and I dry them throughout the winter - takes about 4-5 days on the coldest of days. I love this dehydrator!
