Manufacturing, a division of The Metal Ware Corporation

Custom Manufactured Food Dehydrator for Retail Industries

Backed up by its innovative design and durable construction, the model FD-1010 food dehydrator, manufactured here at NESCO / The Metal Ware Corporation, is a leader in sales and consumer satisfaction. By paying attention to each and every detail involved in the manufacturing and assembly of this electrical appliance, we promote our reputation as a trusted manufacturer in the very competitive small appliance marketplace.

With its patented design, this food dehydrator is one of the largest models available to the consumer market. Manufacturing and assembly involve numerous processes, each tooled for maximum effectiveness and executed right inside our modern manufacturing facility. In addition to sheet metal fabrication, we use automated, robotically-driven injection molding machinery to keep costs very reasonable and production rates very high. Materials of construction include food grade, custom-colored polymer materials chosen for their excellent strength, longevity, and ease of cleaning. All metal surfaces have a durable powder coated finish that withstands the heat and pressure of the dehydrating process over decades of continuous use.

Assembly involves incorporating several innovative electrical features, including a powerful yet compact motor, 4-1/2 inch fan, and adjustable thermostat. Before we pack any of these dehydrators into its litho-labeled carton, we subject it to a battery of dimensional inspections as well as electrical and operational performance testing.

The longevity of this appliance is testimony to its quality construction, and nutrition-conscious consumers use it to dry fruits, vegetables, herbs, and even make their own jerky. Our well-organized production methods and efficient use of resources enable us to manufacture approximately 16,000 units annually at a cost that allows for very attractive pricing.
