Cleaning:
After each use, ensure The Beast is properly cleaned. Remove and wash the drying trays and drip tray with warm, soapy water. Use a damp cloth to wipe down the interior and exterior of the unit. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or scouring pads to maintain the integrity of the surfaces. Make sure all parts are completely dry before reassembling.

Storage:
Store The Beast in a cool, dry place. Ensure all parts are clean and dry before storing to prevent mold and odor buildup. It's best to store the dehydrator with the trays inside and the door slightly ajar to promote air circulation.

Before Use:
Before each use, inspect the dehydrator for any signs of wear or damage. Check that the drying trays are properly seated and the airflow system is unobstructed. Refer to the user manual for guidelines on replacing any worn components.

Safety First:
Always follow the recommended guidelines for temperature and drying times specific to the type of food you are dehydrating. Never overload the dehydrator, as this can impede airflow and result in uneven drying. Ensure the dehydrator is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface away from any flammable materials.

Please read all instructions in your manual for intricacies.

The Beast stands out with its advanced airflow system, ensuring even drying without the need for rotating trays. This technology surpasses many competitors, providing consistent results every time. Say goodbye to your old plastic dehydrator!

You'll be able to watch your food, check up on it, and make sure it's the right dry-level the entire time. No more second guessing and removing trays constantly!

How to use the BEAST™

Beginner's Guide to Dehydrating with the one & only @misses.t.and.me !!

The #1 Choice for Safe, Plastic-Free Dehydrating

Turn boring food into cool, healthy treats!
Linda LouMarch 22, 2024

It only took 4 hours to make dog jerky and that was fast. The old nelco brand took hours to dry anything. This Beast is replacing the old style nelco and I already know it is going to be fabulous.

It is so quiet you don't even know it's on. It seems to be of good quality and is also lite weight. I'm pretty impressed so far and I highly recommend this Beast Dehydrator.

Norman HamiltonDecember 25, 2022

This Dehydrator is great!! I got it for a property I own in Texas and host large gatherings at, and we love making a bunch of jerky for all of our guests! The recipes are awesome and I can’t wait to try out some more of them for New Year’s.

If you’re looking for a dehydrator that walks the walk, and is A BEAST, this is the dehydrator you need—Way better than my little old plastic one I had to fuss with! Glad that Denali provided some of the silicone mats also, didn’t even realize they were included with the amazon purchase. Overall, this is a great product and I highly recommend this company to anyone looking to get started with dehydrating… once you start dehydrating, you’re going to quickly realize you need a larger dehydrator, and this one is a perfect size for those that love jerky!

Jesse OtheeJune 5, 2023

This dehydrator is absolutely fantastic, giving me the ability to dehydrate a wide selection of my favorite things. I’ve used it to dehydrate jerky, fruit, and anything else I want, the machine is working great. I also bought the mats which ensure none of my food get stuck during the dehydration process.

Bonita HayesAugust 25, 2023

Is so quiet you don't know it's on.I dried tomatoes and zucchini. Worked excellently. Would recommend this item

RobertAugust 26, 2023

I got into making jerky a couple years ago and I've always used those cheap presto ones and thought I'd give this a try, and I've got to say this thing really is a beast. I'm glad I got it, It's a Great item to have.

DenaOctober 14, 2023

The trays are a bit to tight. It would be nice if they were a bit smaller for ease of pulling them in and out especially when loaded! This dehydrator works very well and is quiet. My banana chips and apple slices came out perfect each time. I did mangos and pineapple was really impressed.
