Anyone have any experience with those? I'm looking into buying one for Kozmo, and for me to I guess. My price range is something under 100.

It's a Mr Coffee brand dehydrator. I couldn't find any indicator of what model it was anywhere on the box. Just said it had a motor driven fan for better drying.

Do you have to rotate the dry now and then? How much did it cost you? I'm thinking of getting the one below.

The only items I rotate or turn over are the thick ones. Most everything else I can just leave in there overnight and it's ready to go. The one you poseted a link for looks really nice. Mine is not that fancy looking and it probably cost around $30 if I remember correctly.

You really do not need one. Just turn a regular oven to the warm setting, which is about 100 -150 degrees, and place the meat on racks, and it will work just like a dehydrator. I make jerky like this all the time and it turns out the same as when I have used a dehydrator, plus you can make bigger batches.

I dont have a oven. =( Do close the oven shut or leave a crack? How long do you leave it in, time/meat ratio? Do you leave the meat just raw and bake?
