    Great Dehydrator- Crazy Expensive!, May 1, 2011

    This review is from: Tribest Sedona SD-P9000 Digitally Controlled Food Dehydrator With BPA-Free Trays, Black (Kitchen)
    We researched all the raw-food approved dehydrators out there for months, and just before ordering a nine-tray Excalibur saw this newly-released marvel. The design is great; dehydrates well. Love the glass door, the dual fan option, the night-time setting (quieter), and the easy-to-clean interior. Digital display is great too. The biggest drawback is how crazy expensive this thing is (hence the 4 stars). After buying the unit, plus the silicon nonstick sheets (from another vendor, which we just trimmed with scissors), we could have put a down payment on a yacht. I also wish Tribest would offer a ten-year warranty, considering the investment, and especially since it has computerized components (which are never as reliable as the old-fashioned stuff). We bought the Sedona as an investment into our health, and I do think it will pay for itself in a decade or so. (We aren’t even close to 100 percent raw, though. We mostly dehydrate snacks: crackers, fruit leathers, kale chips, and the occasional raw cookie.)
    Bottom line, if you’ve got the 100 bucks to spare, I’d pick this over the Excalibur, but only time will tell if this baby is going to prove itself. I wish I would have had a few years-worth of reviews to look over before we made our decision.

    UPDATE
    ********
    Okay folks, here’s my update after 8 months of owning the Sedona. It’s a really good thing this thing has a warranty, and now I really, REALLY wish it was ten years. After only a month or two, the first one broke. Lower heating element quit in the middle of a batch of mangos. LAME. The good news is that after a little arm twisting, Sedona paid for the shipping to and from and replaced the unit. So far I have not had any problems with the new unit, except that every once in a while the “beep” sound that comes from adjusting the controls sounds a little like a sick bird. Weird, but not that big of a deal. We’ve made lots of dried fruits, crackers and cookies, and everything has turned out great. So other than the tendency to break (chuckle) this is a great product!

    One other interesting thing. In the new model we received two free non-stick sheets. I was excited to try them out on some fruit leather. The fruit leather stuck so bad I had to scrape it off with a scraper and soak the rest off in warm water. It was the same recipe I used on my silicone sheets without any problem. Won’t be using them again!

    We use this thing about once a week. It does the job perfect and performs as a dehydrator should. Packing was nice and shipping was incredibly fast. I would recommend this to anyone, in fact we are saving for a second one.

    *EDIT* BUYER BEWARE!!!!! This unit worked great until today. Never gave any signs of problems, but now the until will not stay on for more than a few seconds, makes a sick beeping sound and just shuts off. Unless you registered your item after the first 10 days of owning AND kept your original box, the warranty does not apply to you. I would never recommend this product or purchase anything else from this company. If you are looking for a dehydrator, I would take a long look at the Excalibur. They now have clear front doors and timers if you wish. They stand behind their product and it is built in the US unlike the Sedona POS built in Korea.

    I love this dehydrator. I got it on 3/13/2013 and thought I was just getting a dehydrator with shelves. To my suprise they came with mats and 3 solid drying sheets. Yay! This thing is soooo easy to use plus it is quiet enough to leave in my kitchen. I don’t even here it running. I have to walk up to it and feel for the air on the sides. I own an old 9 draw American dehydrator which I love but needed an other dehydrator. Now this one is my new love. I made kale chips first. I don’t run my dehydrators over 100 so it takes longer to dry my food than what they say. I did run it at 100 degrees with a oven thermometer and it does run about 4 degrees hotter than what it says. I love the two fans as it makes for more even drying results. Today I am going to make crackers which will be the biggest test as my old machine I have to turn the trays to get even drying. I might still have to turn the trays but that is okay as I am use to it. I think you would have to have a fan on all sides not to have to turn a tray. Maybe someone will invent one…LOL Anyway well worth the money. I never bought an excallaber because they always looke super small compaired to my American. This is smaller but has more functions. Great buy. Well I am off to make crackers. 🙂

    Okay it is 4/6/2013 and I am still loving it!!!! My husband has even starting using it. He says it is easier to use than our old one. Plus it dries with out having to turn the trays. I say Buy it you won’t regret it!!!
