Definitely get one with a thermostat. Makes a huge difference, especially with veggies.

Silly me, when I saw the title of your post, I was thinking that you turned an Easy Bake Oven into a dehydrator! Was intrigued to say the least! :D

I would just go to walmart and get one and if you're like me you'll want something better later on; I now have an Excalibur.

I agree you should try and get something with a thermostat, but if it's not available, don't worry a regular dehydrator will work, worked for me in the beginning...

Thermostat isn't as important as a fan. Make sure it has a fan; run away from the Ronco crap. I also recommend the Nesco Pro. It rocks.

yeah, the Ronco ones don't (or didn't) have fans. Not sure about others.

Yeah...there are a few out there without fans. POS's!!!!

A good Nesco isn't pricey, you can get them on Amazon for $40-65 - and those have thermostats.

This is the best deal I found:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Nesco-American-Harvest-Square-Dehydrator-FD-80/10982699
4 trays with capability of 4 more, only about $10 more than the ones w/o a thermostat in the store.

The first thing to learn to draw people in is a catchy subject line ... :sun

Thanks for the responses and I am glad to know that a thermometer makes a difference and yes I do want to play around and get a good deal and upgrade later if needed. I will be doing lots of veggies meats as I do a low carb meal plan! :banana

I highly recommend this dehydrator. I saw the same price at Amazon; the 2-pack of additional trays was $14. Free shipping.

My first dehydrator was a Ronco and back then (early 90s) they did have fans. Unfortunately I threw it out when I moved some years back. Lately I have been using my oven.
