I received this dehydrator as a present 18 months ago, and have tried in vain to get successful results. Unless you cut food into exactly equal thicknesses, it will not dry evenly, leaving you with a mixture of rock-hard pieces and chewy, gooey ones. The machine is noisy, and for the amount of time it takes, does not seem to be economical. The racks are almost impossible to clean, even when lightly oiled before use - mine are currently soaking in a large trug. I have now decided that I won't be using this appliance again - excess fruit and veg will all be going in the freezer. Sorry Lakeland!
