  1. This is a great price for the dehydrator, we bought one over 2 years ago in the summer and it was over $25.00, and use it a lot to make sweet potato dog treats…its the best thing we have bought
    Really like that the trays are clear and are real easy to clean with a little brush

    only negative is that it about 20 degrees under what our vet says for dehydrated meat treats for dogs

    also bought one for my aunt who has an organic garden and she loves it too

  2. I purchased the exercise bike. Its not too heavy to move around but it is sturdy. I dont feel like any of it is cheaply made, its just really basic. I think its going to last a long time. Its got good resistance, gives a good exercise. It holds up to about 280lbs.
