Setting Up Your Food Dehydrator

Stacking the Trays
Before loading the trays with food, it is a good idea to make sure they are all aligned correctly by stacking them up near the preparation area. The narrow side of the tray is always at the top. 

Trays have alignment arrows cast into the handle. The arrows should be visible on top of the tray handles. Incorrectly stacked trays will hinder the drying process.

Once the trays are all the correct side up, you can stack them in 2 different ways. Depending on the thickness of the food, you can change the stacking height by simply rotating a tray 180oC to change it to either tall or short stacked.

Any combination of stacking can be used to accommodate the foods being dried. An example would be a short tray stack for banana chips and a tall tray stack of large strawberries. 

Set the trays in place so that all the arrows on the handles are visible on the top of the handles.

Rectangular Food Dehydrator

Used twice so far and working well, not too noisy, there is a lot of room with the 6 trays so able to do big batches, this is very impressive for the price I would definitely recommend.
