Nesco Snackmaster Pro Food Dehydrator FD-75A Review

The Nesco Company has done it again by creating this amazing dehydrator product. This time it’s the Nesco Snackmaster Pro Food Dehydrator FD-75A making customers bewildered at the creativity of Nesco. This one is a rare kind of professionally designed food dehydrator rocking the market at the moment. It’s actually listed as a #1 Best Seller on Amazon.

The Snackmaster gives you an opportunity to make your own snacks, like dehydrated strawberries, carrots and so much more within a very short period of time. When I learnt about this product I had all the reasons to put aside my old food dehydrator to enjoy better services of a more quality product. So overjoyed about the model was I that I decided to spread the information to the public.

Powerful Top-Mounted Fan

Forget the other models which come with fans at the back or wherever, the top-mounted fan relieves you the pressure of worrying about getting your heat chamber dirty.

Light Weight

With a shipping weight of only 6 pounds and a nice design, this unique model ensures that you'll still have plenty of counter space to work with in your kitchen. The other time we were moving out to another house, we found it quite hectic transporting stuff especially the heavy model of the food dehydrator we previously possessed. At the moment, with this model, portability is the least of my concern at least.

Features and Specifications

Other outstanding features include:

  • Easy to use; you don’t have to worry about half dried foods where you keep rotating the trays after a given period of time. With this model once you put the food items or the liquid to be dried, you only take them out when ready.
  • UV rays and some other lights can prove harmful when they get in the dehydrator. This is taken care of by the opaque exterior blocks.
  • In as much as the model is light weight, it is relatively wide and spacious enough measuring approximately 13 x 13 x 10 inches.
  • Comes with a handy 52-page recipe book.
  • Two solid sheets and two mesh sheets together with 3 jerky spic packets.
  • The temperature control unit is an adjustable thermostat ranging from 95 degrees to 160 degrees F which gives you opportunity to dry a variety of foods ensuring satisfying results.

Customer Reviews

This Nesco dehydrator had 2719 customers giving very helpful reviews about the dehydrator model. It registered an average of 4.5 stars out of a possible 5! One customer particularly used a line of sentence describing the dehydrator as:

“A great little machine”

he admitted to the fact that it is easy to use and the 52- page recipe book actually proves of great importance.

Another customer however was keen to note that the model does not have a timer, neither does it have an on/off switch. These however are manageable cons as an external timer can easily be fixed. The on/off switch was reported as easy to handle by just unplugging the unit.


All in all, if you're just starting out with dehydrating foods and not looking to spend much, then the Nesco Snackmaster Pro Food Dehydrator FD-75A is one product you will want to introduce to your kitchen. You can count on getting some delicious results at a reasonable price.
