I got a dehydrator last weekend (a Nesco...but I might return it and get an Excalibur instead). I've been running it pretty much all week trying new recipes, and I was just wondering if it will make a big difference in the hydro bill. I'm renting a basement apartment and my rent includes hydro. I'm just worried that the lady upstairs is going to be upset because the bill will be much higher. My dehydrator says it's 700W, but I have no clue what it means in terms of energy consumption. She already gets upset when I do too much laundry (2 loads a week...seriously that's nothing!), so I don't want to get yelled at again.
Have you guys noticed a change in your hydro bill when using your dehydrator a lot?
