Solar Food Dehydrator page, build it yourself

Electric, non commercial food dehydrators range from the inexpensive Snackmaster  to the and the top of the line 9 tray 15 sq ft Excalibur .    The economy version of the 9 tray Excalibur (Model 2900 does not have a timer) is available from sources found on the web.  The timer is not needed since food cannot be over dried.  If a timer is desired for other reasons, it is much cheaper to purchase an electric timer from a big box store.
