My sister is headed out of town to the beach and let me use her dehydrator last minute. Well, there aren't any instructions in the box. I've never used one before and am completely clueless as to how to work this thing, the time it takes, etc... It is a Snackmaster jr. I'm certain it is fairly simple, I am just don't know how long to dehydrate the apples for. I also would like to know if the racks are dishwasher safe. I don't think it was washed from the last time it was used and then it was stored in the attic, so YUCK! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I hope this is the correct place for this to go, mods. If not please feel free to move it!
