    Reminds me of my old Ronco.

    IIRC, this has a bottom mounted fan and heater element, the top is just the exhaust holes.

    The clear trays and lid seem like a nice feature but if they're going to get hazy if washed in a dishwasher then maybe not. It also appears that you must unplug this when not using it as there is no off switch position, only fan on or two heat levels with fan on. It seems that some Nescos also have this design fault.

    There were a couple others I saw around $50, one that usually sells for a little over $50 at auction, a Nesco FD-75PR 700W, and on Amazon a Nesco FD-60 500W, both of which have a top heater and fan, and numbered temperature settings instead of just "low" and "high".

    Can't say I'd care in the least about haze from the dishwasher, but I think not having an off switch is a definite flaw.

    ^ Yeah but hazy clear plastic looks worse than solid color plastic and is usually more brittle too... just trying to figure out which is the better design between the two, while a few reviewers also mentioned that top mounted fan and element makes cleaning easier and the fan more reliable due to not having any juices dripping on them.
