Successes so far: courgette crisps (with black pepper, lemon & salt), pineapple, apple (with lemon and cinnamon) and strawberries.

Not so nice - banana slices. And underripe Bramleys, which I tried to palm off on Small Child as apple sours.  :nowink:

Trying watermelon and cooked spuds next - I'd like a baked-style crisp.

Definitely the best gadget I've bought in a while!

Watermelon is very moreish, I have had to do a load more. I think they have it around all the time to keep them hydrated, but i much prefer to drink water and dry the watermelon. Yellow melon dries crispier quicker.

Given the products taste so good I don't mind being weak-willed.  :D

It was cheaper than another freezer   :lol: In my defence I was going to buy one back in 2006 when I last had a decent chilli harvest and didn't get round to it. 

At least it's being put to good use, there's another courgette in there at the moment and I have some tomato skins to go in later today.

Come over to the dark side - you know you want to really.

* evil laugh * buy them both  ;)

Im struggling to justify the passata maker .... but if this year is a good chilli year, next year I can fill both greenhouses with tomatoes - and then I couldn't possibly manager without - could I  :blush:

Hubby was going to buy me a dehydrator from Lakeland when we were up there in July but I said no coz I think it will be one of those gadgets that ends up in the cupboard. Reading your posts I wish I had bought it now.
Is the Lakeland one any good or is there a cheaper and better one out there. I am feeling the urge  :wacko:
