    We have this Excalibur. Made a lot of beef jerky with it. It's a great machine. We are happy with it. The only problem we found was that the very top and bottom tray don't seem to get the same level of heat as the middle trays so we had to manually shuffle the trays when it's half way done.

    I hsve a Nesco I use to dehydrate fruits and veggies. I rarely use it for jerky. IMHO jerky not only needs to be dried but actually really smoked too. I use a Little Chief smoker for jerky.

    Mine is now 9 years old. Don't even remember the model #. A four tray version that still works fine. I know Nesco has more models now. Mine gets used a lot this time of year thru fall.
