Actually, my Excalibur has trays that are plastic.  I feel completely stupid now for never having considered if they were BPA-free.




I don't know if they make a model under $100, but I do like mine.  And if you're considering things, consider a timer on it.  Everyone told me "Oh no--so not worth the extra!"  Totally, totally wrong.

I've been doing some research on food dehydrators, and I'm at a loss. I had a cheap one years ago, but everything came out tasting like plastic, so I got rid of it.


I'd like to spend less than $100. I'm looking at the Nesco.


Can anyone tell me what they have and what kind of plastic the trays are made of? I'm looking to avoid BPA. I'd get a stainless steel one, but that's just not an option!
