works but is a PIG to put together
16 November 2017
First up, it works, but ONLY in smaller spaces and places where there is little ventilation. Put it in somewhere the door is often open, or a window is open and it kind of defeats the purpose of the unit. However in the cupboard under the stairs, the show cupboard or a hardly used room, it works like magic.
That's the good part.
The loss of one star is the assembly of the item, which is tricky at best and frustrating at worst.
Be warned the item is LARGE and heavy when full, needs both hands to carry it around and if you have narrow ledges, it will not fit.
When you get the package you have to insert the donut shaped hand-sized dehydration tablet into the unit itself. You press a button on the top and the side should flap down to take the unit, but it did not, instead the bottom fell off and had to be put back with much frustration - it is designed to come off and on, but OH the hassle of getting it aligned and clipped in place.. I nearly lost the plot on more than one occasion. Finally it gets there, and you have to take the donut out of the packaging WITHOUT it touching your flesh, and put it on a spindle then close the unit which does not close well and takes several attempts. Once it is together though, it is a sturdy enough unit and works well.
I just hope you like a little frustration with your dehydrating...
