The specs on that big un I posted says it'll get up to 300F :lol:

I dont think we need to reach 300F

I've thought about propane. I think on the whole tho as far as cost, propane be more expensive than elec?

i'm a little bit the opposite of the above question. DIY dehydros actually make me scoff at the nice ones. You certainly have to get a few things right but it's stupid simple and stupid cheap. I've dropped some coin on nice ones and don't think i will ever again.

ummmm, I'd say the opposite but maybe i'm just used to stupid high kwh prices. Around here (and anywhere else i've lived) gas is almost always cheaper

Def would have to check local prices of both for a proper cost assessment.

Small price to pay for quick turn around. Besides that my wife pays the utilities.

:baaaam:

I like that its discreet too. Not big on the big glass viewing window advertising a mushroom showcase.

Thats true manch.  And yes I had considered recirculating air but havent needed to yet andnit would be humid air.  Yes, diy makes me scoff at the pricy ones as well... your forevor paying for the engineering copywrite.  I havent compared the kw hours but I havent needed to... heheheh...  all the newer space heaters have a thermostat tho and running one everyday is only 100$ on your bill

Its cool. In a few weeks I have the whole house to myself for a week. I'm tearing down my room and starting over from scratch.  Uniform Costco shelving from floor to ceiling on 3 walls. I'm tired of tripping over shit.

Hellz yeah! Nothing like a good remodel to cleanse the soul and unclutter space & mind.

While youre at it you should add a plexi glass window to the front door of your dehydro. Ya know, spruce it up a lil. :wink:

joke, obviously

And the OCD. Uniformity is so satisfying. I can't even begin to say how many supplies I've thrown away just cause it doesn't match since I've started cult.

Doesnt match?

Does not... compute...

You mean like... "well this bowling ball doesnt seem to match up with the task of mush cult so, i better toss it."...?

That's what you mean?

That was my thinking as well, but I knew LK had the cabelas units so asked a leading question to see if he thought anything was superior in his experience using a pricey store bought one. However I am a consummate DIYer provided I am not shooting myself in the foot, because if it's truly worth it, I'll spend the coin on a better more efficient option, but with this I have thought and continue to think that DIY is plenty in the dehydrating department.

My first ghetto rigged bulk option is still  in my sig lol, I outgrew the presto pretty much instantly and it was my solution to bulk it up :lol:

I am still kicking around design options for my next shot at a more legit dehydro :rockon:

Not quite that bad. But I'll definitely phase out tubs with white lids to phase-in clear lids.

That's funny cause i used to use purely the clear lid blue latch 66qt tubs,
now I almost exclusively use the white lid 58qt tubs.

@lot- propane is cheaper than electric if you have gas appliances in your home.

Here's a good wood fired dehydro


Basically a small house built over a wood stove with the pipe running up the center/back.

As much said wood stoves dry the air out so much theyll make your nose bleed

IME with the white lids without the latches the bottom of the tubs aren't as sturdy and can sag the sub in the middle making it concave especially when stacking.

That's a beast of a dehydrator.

Ya ive experienced that for sure but it happens with the 66qt for me too.
I prefer the white because theyre cheap when bought in bulk. Ive gotten them for less
than 5 dollars a tub shipped free from walmart before.
