How many tray can you add apart from the standard 4 Trays that comes with the dehydrator?

The answer is 12.

The more you add the longer it takes to dry, but works fine. Many of my friends use 6 and they have no problems with it.

What about the noise it produces? Is it noisy?

Well, the noise exists like in every other kitchen appliance but is not audible enough to annoy us and you won’t even notice it.

Cleaning the trays – easy or not?

Well, the longer you cook the tougher the stains might get, but relax just soak them in hot water for a while and then continue with a normal scrubbing and you should just be fine.

Is it safe to wash the dehydrator trays in a dishwasher?

Ofcourse, they are.

Dehydrating for backpacking?

Yup, works like a charm. You might want to consider a vacuum sealer to store all your meals for backpacking.

Temperature Range?

Between 95 – 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

500 watt or 1000 watt version?

Both works fine, but if you have heavy drying time, for example, meat jerky then you will need a dehydrator that can handle higher temperatures for a longer duration. Even if you spend some extra dollar, the satisfaction is guaranteed.

Are there any mesh screens for drying nuts ?

Comes pre-built with 4 meshes.
