Request: DEHYDRATOR (Food and Jerky Marker) (Ottawa East) - Hello friendly neighbours, we are looking for a quality food dehydrator and jerky maker. 2020 has brought so many challenges and we are trying to adapt and overcome. We have turned our ways of eating to a more self-sustainable one. We grew veggies and fruits in our garden. We buy cheaper meats only because prices have sky rocketed. We'd love to make our own jerky and preserve meats longer. If you have one collecting dust, we would be immensely grateful. Thank you for your consideration.
