The Nesco American Harvest FD-61WHC Snackmaster Express is a great quality food dehydrator at a very affordable price. You can guess by its name what it does best… that’s right – making snacks! Tasty, healthy and nutritious snacks that will make everyone curious about the recipe.
There are several reasons why it is good to have your own dehydrator at home. One of the reasons is of course, your health. When you dry the food, you remove all the moisture which is a perfect host for all sorts of harmful bacteria that are directly responsible for spoiling the food. This way you can preserve your food longer without losing the healthy nutrients.
Another good reason is… you save money! Think of all the leftovers that you have to throw away because you know they will eventually start to smell bad and taste awful. You can simply dehydrate those leftovers and then rehydrate them later on – and they will still taste good!
Snackmaster Express Video Review
Containing 5 trays with an option of separately buying and installing 7 additional ones, it is ready to dry and prepare as much food as you can handle. It is a perfect tool for smaller families who like getting together and enjoy a healthy, tasty meal.
The amazing feature of this dehydrator is its unique heating system positioning. Usually dehydrators have a rear or a bottom motor placement, but Snackmaster has it on top! This enables a unique heat flow through the trays, spreading vertically through the trays and horizontally above each separate tray, ensuring the food is dried properly and evenly. Also, the flavours of the food don’t mix and the trays don’t need rotation.
The trays have a circular shape and a small hole in the center to ensure a proper flow of the heat. They are very easy to clean and the juices from the food always end up on the bottom of the dehydrator, making it easy to wash and maintain. All the trays are completely dishwasher-safe.
Opaque Vita-Save exterior makes sure all the harmful outside lights are isolated in order to perfectly preserve all the nutrients of the food.
The Snackmaster is also equipped with a built-in thermostat which enables you to regulate the intensity and pace of dehydration. You can set the temperature between 95 and 155 degrees, depending on the food and the degree to which you want to dry it.
Being a small 425W beast, it does produce a rather loud noise while active. However, this is the type with almost all current dehydrators and most people get used to it fairly quickly.
Also, its size can sometimes be deceiving. If you plan on buying one of these, you have to find a place where you can fit it without causing discomfort.
Its relatively cheap price and amazingly positive customer review ratings make this dehydrator very high on our list. It is recommended for everyone who is no longer willing to settle for low quality junk food and ready to live a healthier and happier life!
