I have a small nesco dehydrator. It's a few years old now, and it's the only one I've ever had. It was pretty cheap, and I know there are much nicer ones on the market, but it does a pretty good job for what I paid (don't even remember, but not more than $30 CDN). Sometimes if I am using the sheets in it, it dries a little unevenly, but I have no complaints otherwise. I've used it for jerky, drying herbs, nuts, seeds, fruits, veggies, etc.
