Ancient - But Still Works!

by Kirsten

I have a model so old that they do not make it anymore, and I have no idea of the model. I think it was a early version of the Snackmaster but I cannot be sure, (it's round, if that helps... fan on the bottom).

It's old, cranky, and no longer stacks neatly because at some point it overheated and the trays warped just slightly... while I wouldn't use it for meat, anymore... it works just fine for vegetables.

The thing is -- the ancient old dehydrators are *fine* for vegetables and other less tricky items so as long as you are not making jerky? Keep it until it dies!

Great Post "Caregiver" - thanks so much for taking the time to post that!

Love the info on E-6000 to repair them :-)

Please thank your grandson for his service to our country.

They don't make this one anymore, either. I've had it for probably 35 years, as I made fruit rollups & snacks for my 38-y-o daughter when she was a baby. It still works great. I expanded it from 4 to 6 trays, also years ago. The only problem I've had is that the trays become brittle and crack around the outer rim. I keep a tube of E-6000 to repair them, and they're just like new! I just ordered 4 more trays today to expand it.

My daughter still likes crispy apple slices, and I also send CARE packages of apple slices and turkey jerky to my grandson in the Army. Vacuum-sealed individual servings are great when he goes out on a training for several days.
