Hi Tara, yes, there are great solar dehydrators out there, but I did specifically say I was only reviewing the two electric dehydrators I own and use often. Thanks for posting Tara!

Hi Patriot1st - thanks for posting - would you mind sharing what dehydrator brand you are using? You see, I only reviewed the ones I own and use all the time. I appreciate your comments, have a super day! Susan.

You forgot one - The Best Solar Dehydrator reported on by Mother Earth News. Lots(!) Of rack space, works great in the summer, not so much in the winter. My husband made me one and I love it!
