Deal Details

http://www.kohls.com/upgrade/webs...4893020962

sells at Kohls for over $100

http://www.waringpro.com/catalog....uct_id=533

$69 if you buy direct from Waring.

My local Costco had the Waring food dehydrator for $39.99.

Model number was different but specs are the same. 5 year motor warranty and Costco return policy make this deal unbeatable with the already low price.

I used it last night to make jerky and fruit roll ups for the kids using greek yogurt and strawberry jam...both came out very well.

I was buying dried and freeze dried fruits at Costco and fruit leather from Trader Joes to feed my kids...this unit should save me some $$$ in the long run.

I did find them at glen mills, pa. There are still a bunch of them left if anyone is interested and same item number.
I did find kids skechers shoes for $19.97" adult skecher running shoes for the same price.
Also did find so many kitchen items ending in .97 and bedding stuffs too.

When I called my Columbus Ohio costco, he couldn't initially find it via the item number. Then searching for waring pro did the trick. Sure enough, the numbers do match. They have 36 in stock (about to be 35 bounce)

thanks, although there is a lot of misinformation/lying about these things from manufacturers. Probably doesn't also say exactly what kind of plastics are used [especially on the shelves]?

I don't see any specific info, or even recycle numbers on the trays or mentions anything in the instruction guide. However, the plastic "feels" and looks like acrylic.

I used mine for a week and it STOPPED.

No sound, not air, nothing.

Although the motor is a 5 year warranty, I just returned it to Costco and bought another one. I don't want to deal with Waring to get it repaired.

I think it might have to do with the fact that I've been using it on high to make jerky nonstop. Maybe it needs a cool down period?

That said, the jerky I've made has come out great.

If you don't mind me asking, is there a certain recipe & directions you are using for the jerky? I tried making the banana chips and fruit roll up per the booklet that came with the unit and both did not come out so good. So next up is the jerky!

I use mine to make chicken jerky for the dogs. Pay 25.00 for the Costco boneless chicken breasts, slice while frozen and make enough to last a month 2/day for 2 chihuahuas. Regular chicken jerky bags last a week. More than paid itself off.

For humans, the Alton Brown recipe is really good.

Freeze your meat so it's easier to slice, cut it into thin slivers or slices.

Costco sells a teriyaki sauce..i think it's called yoshida. I mix in a two cups of that with two cups of orange juice. I also throw in a dash of spices and peppers because I prefer a little kick. Put it in the fridge overnight then put them in the dehydrator.

Are you using a special cut of steak? flank? Sounds like a delicious recipe and I will try this weekend! How long do you put yours in for?

Which Costco Location?

Looks like there are quite a few problems with the motors burning out.
which would be the POINT OF BUYING IT FROM COSTCO!!!!

A side note fwiw, 620 watts is pretty high from something running all day. That's $1.49 of electricity per 24 hours at the standard $.10/kw. Use frequently during the month and you'll most likely see the effect in your electric bill.

That said, thanks OP, I think I'm in.
