My grandparents had a larger dehydrator, about the size of a largish microwave oven. Handy for food when they were active gardeners. Handy for drying my fiber prints when I had a darkroom.

I don't have it anymore, too much stuff for an apartment, but I still do some dehydrating. A frost-free freezer can be used to freeze dry herbs, so I buy fresh herbs on blowout sales at the grocery store and dry 'em for later.

Also freeze dried a whole artichoke that way just for giggles -- I was curious to see if it worked and it did. Puzzles folks when they visit and pick it up. You'd think nobody's ever seen a dehydrated artichoke before.

And I'll dehydrate cherry and grape tomatoes after they get wrinkly -- I just put 'em in a sunny window. They'll keep longer and plump up nicely when tossed in the pot with pasta sauce or any cooked dish.
