    Does any have a juicer and/or dehydrator? I am debating on whether to get these two items. I am wanting to be healthier this year, and I LOVE dried fruits and fruit juices, etc. I was just wondering do you think these items are worth it?

    I am going to try out my blender to make juice. I was told that it 'may' work if the speed was fast enough. I also read that if you blend just vegetables that you can use the pulp in your soup.

    I really want a dehydrator!

    I can't wait to make a wedding registry, I already have the basics, so I can ask for "extras" ;)

    I have a dehydrator--use twice a year(During Johnny Appleseed and during the summer for tomatos. It is a pain, but my kids like banana chips dipped in honey and water.

    My mom had a dehydrator. I think she dried fruit in it a few times and I lent it to a friend to make beef jerky and then it went to 'appliance heaven' in our storage room.

    If you'll use them, I think they'd be fantastic. Otherwise they'd just take up space in the cupboard.

    I use my Champion juicer on a regular basis. I really like the healthy juices I make.

    My mom loves her dehydrator. She does a lot of canning and freezing. She uses the dehydrator to dry green beans and apples in the summer. (They grow their own produce, too.)
