I use my dads dehydrator so I am not sure which brand it is. its really handy. Everytime either of us have excess anything we dehydrate it. I got a huge box of mushrooms for $14 (approx 5k) sliced them all and dehydrated them. My daughter ate them like chips and you put them in pasta sauce and they rehydrate! I make jams, sauce, quince paste, wine as well. I just collect old jam jars and use them. I boil them for 15 mins and put them in a hot oven for another 10 to sterilise. Then I let them cool slightly (to the same temp as the jam) otherwise they will crack. I use the fowlers cellophane lids to seal. For sauce I either use a jar, wine bottle or a beer bottle and cork it or cap it. My equipment is a 20L stock pot (with a cake rack in the bottom to stop the jars hitting it.) and a wine bottle corker. (but not necessary)
I love it and its great to be able to use our surplus for the rest of the year. I do extra for dad in exchange for letting us use his dehydrator. i also make fruit roll ups, apple rings, banana chips in it as well. It is time consming but worth it. If you get an apple corer - it will save you heaps of time! We use only lemon juice if that for things like apple.
