I did it, I purchased the Excalibur Dehydrator from Amazon today.
Excalibur 3900 Deluxe Series 9 Tray Food Dehydrator - Black
I also purchased the sheets to make fruit leathers and roll-ups.
Pack of 9 Premium 14" x 14" Non-Stick Dehydrator Sheets- For Excalibur 2500, 3500, 2900 or 3900
Now I just need to plan what I want to make, I do know Jerky will be on that list - right near the top. I will no longer need to dry my jerky in batches. I might also offer to dehydrate for friends and neighbors, for the cost of the electricity. (we'll see when Hunting season starts)
I purchased a mandoline slicer so I can work through the veggies faster and get even slices for drying.

I used the mandoline last night and made "skinny fries" I used the julliene blade to cut the potato up and fried them in a deep fryer... they were delicious.
