I’ve been wanting a dehydrator for some time. Not a crappy one, but a really nice one that could get me the results I was looking for. I had one in the past, about $40, but I just didn’t like how things turned out. Drying basil and what not was fine, but leaves would fall through the trays & other items would not dry well or evenly. So I finally upgraded. Jenn I split the cost to get it and so far I’m very pleased with the results. If you come here often, you’ll likely see more posts about dehydrating stuff.
