Sunbeam Food Lab Electronic Dehydrator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 89.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use - does the job :) Simple to use, really like the adjustable time and temperature. Consistent drying on all racks. Racks are easy to get the dried food off. We use the supplied fruit leather tray at the bottom so it can catch any little bits and therefore is easy to keep clean (base under racks is not one smooth area otherwise and could be more time consuming to wipe but the fruit leather tray sorts that :) Like the variable options for tray heights. There are double the options for tray location as there are trays. Additional trays are available to be bought separately, but are expensive so not really viable. Light to carry/shift. Great machine in general.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the best Beef Jerky! I recently got this machine to do Beef Jerky. The recipes in the manual are a good starting point but I have now ventured off and tried some others. It is very easy to use, easy to clean and has all the different settings for temp and time. The best thing is with the electronic timer it will shut off when the dehydrating cycle is complete. My wife is starting to do fruits in it as well for the kids!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, accurate, efficient. The Sunbeam Food Lab is so quiet, I can run it in the kitchen (next to the living area), whereas a previous dehydrator, with its high-pitched, hair-dryer whine, had to be kept behind closed doors, in the laundry! I used a thermometer to test the Food Lab's temperatures, and it was accurate. This is important to me, as I make a lot of raw food, which should not exceed 45 degrees. Each rack dries evenly; no need to rotate shelves, as I had to do with another model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great to be able to set temperatures I bought this to do nuts (although they are not listed as something it does) as I had an old round model that you couldn't get a low enough temperature.. This is great! I can do them at 45% so as not to ruin any goodness. It does take a few days though at that low temperature. The only down size is the holes in the racks are too big, but I just put baking paper on the shelves which works fine! this makes it easier to get them out again at the end to..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heaps of room! We bought this product about 1 year ago and we use it for our homemade jerky. It hasn't missed a beat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sunbeam Food lab - a brilliant dehydrator! This is an excellent dehydrator. The square shape and the rear fan make this unit far superior for dehydrating foods, compared with the older round models with the inbuilt dryer in the base of the unit. I have used it on three occasions so far - it made a great job of tomatoes, bringing them to a dried state in around 8 hours. Strawberries also came up a treat after only a few hours. Apples needed a slightly warmer temperature than noted, however they became an excellent dried product. The Unit is sleek, a great colour and so quiet! A most inspired purchase and I will be using it much more! Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use, love the set and forget usage We replaced a previous similar but cheaper de-hydrator which did not have the same features ànd had burnt out. We only use it currently for drying meat for dog food and occasional fruit when we have excess. It has been a fabulous purchase. Need to be careful with the doors and trays when you remove/install as they are easily broken by a heavy handed male.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not one regret, LOVE my dehydrator Absolutely love my Sunbeam Food Lab dehydrator! Since purchasing I have been using it non-stop, dehydrating herbs to make tea mixes, weekly batches of fruit leather, yummy kale chips, and dried fruit snacks! I am still yet to fully explore all the potential greatness of this machine but I love the way that everything dries evenly, that I can adjust the heights and arrangements of trays depending on what I am making, and the ease of being able to choose the appropriate temperature and time length , love that i can set it off at night and wake up to treats!
