    I, too, have the Nesco. My DH uses it for venny jerky and it is great. I am working on apples and bananas right now. Wouldn't trade it for the world.

    We invested in an Excalibur this year and have no regrets! It is a great dehydrator.

    As for ideas on what and how to dehydrate...the dehydrator will come with a booklet that will tell you the care and use of it along with some basic recipees. For more ellaborate ones try the Nesco American Harvest site. Click on recipees, dehydrator, and search. Here is a link, hope it works, but if not, just go on the site. Hope it helps! Have fun!

    ETA the link. Too young to have memory issues. [​IMG]
