Nesco FD-75PR 700-Watt Food Dehydrator Review
Nesco FD-75PR 700-Watt Food Dehydrator is yet another powerful model from a brand that has been producing food dehydrators for a long time. According to Amazon, over 90% people who bought this item were more than satisfied with their purchase, which is no surprise if we consider all the benefits…
What are the benefits of Nesco FD-75PR 700-Watt Food Dehydrator?
With a 700-Watt motor power and 5 large circular trays, drying food with FD-75PR is a breeze and takes only a couple of hours (instead couple of days). The 5 default trays can even be upgraded with 7 additional ones, leaving no room for scarcity. This is more than enough for a whole family to enjoy a big, healthy, dried meal. All the trays have a circular shape and can be cleaned very easily, as they are completely dishwasher-safe.
There’s no need to rotate the trays either (although you can if you wish to do so) and the flavors of the food don’t mix.
Nesco FD-75PR Food Dehydrator has a top-positioned fan, preventing the potential damage of juice leakage. All the food juices are collected in the bottom part, so they never come in contact with the motor itself, therefore prolonging its life-span. The juices drip to the bottom part of the dehydrator, making it very convenient to maintain.
Patented Converga-Flow® fan forces the heated air from the top to the bottom of the dehydrator, while spreading evenly across the trays and drying the food uniformly.
With Nesco FD-75PR, you can control the intensity and the pace of the food drying by adjusting the built-in thermostat. You do this by setting the desired temperature from 95-160 degrees Fahrenheit.
The cool thing about this dehydrator is the Vita-Save® Exterior feature which basically prevents and isolates all harmful exterior lights in order to preserve the healthy nutrients inside the food.
Also, when you make a purchase, you will get a free 52-page recipe book to get your creativity juices flowing, giving you plenty of ideas for your next meal.
What are some of the downsides?
Although not really a downside, it is actually funny that this great dehydrator doesn’t have an ON/OFF switch! You have to do this manually by plugging/unplugging the cable. Also, with dimensions of approximately 13x13x10-inch, this dehydrator (like most other dehydrators) takes up a lot of space, so it is advisable that you consider the ideal place for it before you actually make the purchase.
If you thought these dehydrators are quiet, you’d be wrong. While turned ON, they make a rather noisy sound as the fan heats and dries the food inside. This, however, is the case with all dehydrators and not only Nesco FD-75PR. The good news is that most people seem to get used to the sound after some time.
With all this in mind, it is still pretty clear that the Nesco FD-75PR 700-Watt Food Dehydrator is certainly a high quality product that won’t let you down.
