Does what it's supposed to do. . .
on 17 October 2014
As a total novice when it comes to using a dehydrator (though I've been drying mushrooms on the radiator for years), I found the book extremely useful, especially as regards timings and temperatures (though I feel the latter err on the low side just a tad, but that's common in other, similar, books too).
I don't know why all the griping about American units of measurement. Apart from cups there's nothing specifically American about them - we used the same Imperial system until relatively recently in our history. And US measuring cups are widely available. That said, it's high time American cookery writers bought themselves some scales. Cups might have been fine for the pioneers, settling the West (scales would have been shaken to uselessness in the back of a wagon), but the world has moved on - time US cooks caught up.
Some recipes are - um - eccentric, to say the least. Dehydrated cheese? Why?
All things considered, a worthwhile buy. and worth its 5 stars.
Tip - some timings might seem too long. They're not.
