FD-1040 | Nesco GardenMaster Digital Pro Food Dehydrator
Nesco – one of the leading brands in America for its food dehydrators brings all the advantages of drying foods into one simple and versatile unit, the FD-1040.
Contemporary in its design, with a clean white finish, this dehydrator combines Nesco / American Harvest’s unique Top Mounted Power-head, and their specially designed Converga-Flow system to generate the fastest speed and quality for dehydrating fruits, vegetables, meats, herbs, spices and much more. The top-mounted 4-1/2 inch fan and 1000-watts of drying power dries food up to 4 times faster compared to dehydrators without fan or motors.
The FD-1040 also features an adjustable thermostat that allows you to dry different foods at the optimum temperatures (95 – 160F) that different foods require, providing the flexibility to produce the best drying results.
Opaque drying trays and lid ensures that sunlight does not reach and affect delicate nutrients, retaining vitamins and minerals for a more nutritous drying.
The top mounted fan helps keep drippings out of the fan unit, making cleanup easier. The trays are also removable, easy to wash, and also dishwasher-safe, making the whole drying process hassle-free
The possibilities are endless: drying your favourite fruits to vegetables, drying your fresh garden-grown herbs and spices, making delicious jerky from your favourite cuts of meat, potpourri and dried flowers for arts and crafts and even healthy treats for your pets at a fraction of the cost compared to store-bought products.
Expandable up to 20 trays to accomodate all your drying needs.
All components that come in contact with food products are BPA-free.

Love this Dehydrator. I purchase 3 lbs of inside round steak and mix together a jerky receipe. Let it marinate for 24 hours in the refrigerator, take it out and put it in the dehydrator. 4 hours later I have 1 lb of great dry jerky. This thing drys all 4 trays equally and no need to rotate the trays like you would have to do with other dehydrators.
