Never used the oven --- from what I've read you should leave the door open a crack for air to circulate --- I didn't want hot air coming out into the air-conditioned house. I have an Excalibur with a timer. It takes up a lot of storage/counter space and the trays don't fit in my sink but it can make a large batch at once. My second choice was a Nesco (one of the ones on Amazon with 4+ stars and the ability to add trays). Regardless, happy to have a dehydrator --- the dogs LOVE the beef and chicken jerky. Sweet potato chips were a hit with one, the other not so much. I've dehydrated fruit (pineapple is my favorite), experimented with jerky recipes and made a few flavors of kale chips. Good luck!
