I have been wanting a dehydrator for some time now, but have been waiting until I stumbled upon one at a thrift store. Well just a couple of weeks ago was my lucky day! For $5 I got a brand new never used 1980's Snackmaster Jr.! The box claimed that this machine is great for the outdoors man, health nut, chef, and families. So I put it to the test that night. I cut up some bananas, pineapple, mango, kiwi, and apples, the directions said to dry for 8-10 hours so I turned it on and headed for bed. In the morning I had fresh warm dried fruit. Delicious! And so easy!
