I have just started experimenting with my new food dehydrator and it is wonderful! Last night we tried bananas and they are chewy and so yum. Pears are great too, and I made some dried baby tomatoes that I've put in olive oil to keep. I can see that I am going to be having loads of fun with this machine. The only drawback is that it does not have an on/off switch and has to be turned off at the plug, which is a little bit of a nuisance.
