Tribest Sedona® Food Dehydrator - L O V E. Bought at costco.com, where you seem to be able to get the best price / deal compared to other websites. I have researched dehydrators for a long time, and it came down to a choice between the Excalibur and the Sedona. I choose the Sedona because it has a glass front so that you can see what is happening inside, you can run one or two fans at the same time (thus saving energy), it is digital vs analog and it fits into a microwave cavity.
mineral oil on eggs. I had no idea you could preserve eggs (unrefridgerated) for 9-12 months by coating them with mineral oil! Alternatives to mineral oil: Jojoba oil or Kepeg (though not sure of the chemical makeup of Kpeg).
