    The Sedona has several great features but lacked in performance., July 24, 2014

    The digital display and settings were straightforward and easy to use. The unit itself looks nice and fit easily in my kitchen. As advertised, it was quiet when running and the dual time setting capability was very helpful. Also liked the ability to use just half of the machine when dehydrating smaller batches. The machine has several great features but in my opinion it just did not perform well.

    The Sedona worked well for foods that were already dryer by nature (Kale chips, nuts, etc.) When I attempted to dehydrate wetter items such as zucchini chips (cut thin with the mandoline) or crackers, the Sedona did not work well. After over 28 hours of dehydrating, the zucchini chips still were not done :(. Same experience with crackers – quadrupled the dehydrating time and still they did not get crispy. I even tried increasing the temperature a few degrees above the raw food recommendation … but it did not help.

    I just couldn’t get the chips to chip or the crackers to crack even when I added extended and excessive amounts of dehydrating time.

    Tribest has the right idea, the features are great and the unit is pretty but it needs to perform better. Thus, sadly, I had to return it.

    1st dehydrator I’ve ever bought or used. I initially bought it because I thought it’d be neat to make my own dried fruit snacks and kale chips. The naturally dried snacks at my local organic store are so insanely expensive I figured it was time to make my own.
    Really easy to use and the customer service so helpful, now it is as big of a staple in my kitchen as my oven.
    In addition to my beloved kale chips and dried fruit snacks, I’ve found homemade jerky to be a favorite in my household. The most pleasant surprise is that this dehydrator can also crisp up your favorite nuts like cashews and almonds.
    All of these homemade snacks are soooo much healthier than the junk we used to buy. We are super stoked about this Tribest company and we look forward to perusing their catalogue for more ideas to help us live more healthy.

    Too hard to set-doesn’t heat properly., February 13, 2014
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I only had this unit for two days when I decided it had to be returned. It didn’t work properly for dehydrating. This unit, at least the one that was shipped to me, didn’t get up to temperature or heat properly. To set it is confusing and the unit has a very strong smell of plastic or something, when running. The temperature inside the unit in the middle rack doesn’t match what the temperature is set at on the digital display. The machine is quality made materials but the racks are too thick for proper heated air distribution, I believe. It is nice to have a clear window but not needed and the light it comes with inside is only good for when you open the door which is just a tiny little light in the back, top, right of the unit. (Don’t count on seeing much more than if it didn’t have a light.)

    I returned the unit within 5 days of purchasing it but the 3rd party seller that I bought this item from has been very difficult to deal with in returning the unit for refund and charged me a 50% restocking fee and wanted me to allow him to put it on eBay as an auction listing to get any refund for it at all. I contacted Amazon and am still working through the problem.
