"Not only are we now able to grow tomatoes on the Oregon Coast, but some of ours are drying at this moment in the Solar Food Dryer... Our opinion is that the SunWorks Solar Food Dryer is a well-thought out and explained kit. Thank you for the clear instructions and illustrations and photos. We’re also deeply appreciative of the attention you paid to the components of the dryer—that they are food grade and not toxic. Non-formaldehyde plywood—just great!" Mary & Bill, Florence, Oregon, August 20, 2012.

Regarding the DIY version of the SunWorks SFD and SunScreens:

"It's been working really well, and I just wanted to thank you for writing the book and making the design available." - Sam, Farmington, Maine, August 13, 2012

"We are very happy with it and the carpenter wants to make more for his family and friends. My mother just came from Colombia to visit and fell in love with it." -Natalia, Harare Zimbabwe (Africa), 8/10/12

"I appreciated the timely arrival of my Sunscreens. I'm already drying food with great success!" -Neal, Portland, Oregon, September 13, 2011

"Love your dehydrator. It makes so much sense every gardener should have one." -Mike, Mokelumne Hill, CA, 8/18/11

"Your design works great and we have put ours to good use here in New Zealand." -Marios, New Zealand, August 1, 2011

"I have had such a good experience with the dryer. We love ours, just built it in April, and I use it for all sorts of things, most recently to dry 6 days of meals for light backpacking. Recently I found very ripe bananas for 19 cents a pound and purchased 10 pounds. I was able to slice them up and make fabulous-tasting trail food; it handled all 10 pounds with room to spare. I also used 14 pounds of meat to make Jerky and it again was up to the task. I've even taken casseroles and spread them out thin on parchment paper on the screens and made complete dehydrated meals for camping and hiking. Whenever we buy too much produce and realize we can't eat it all before it starts to go bad, we cut it up and dry it; we've made some wonderful and interesting things." -Joe, Central Point, Oregon, 8/2/11

"I built your solar dryer about three years ago (using some of the screening you sell) and have had good success with it." -Russel, Lutz, FL, 5/28/10

"I love my new dryer, and today I'm drying string beans, thinly-sliced onions tossed with tamari and lemon juice, and kale chips." -Valorie, Ithaca, NY, July 22, 2009

"The design is great and they are working very well, we had them up to 150 today, wow! We’re trying to move towards a more sustainable way of life, and this has been a very inspiring project for us. So far we’ve done figs, onions, hot peppers, zucchini, potatoes, beans, and lots of parsley. The backup heating system has really helped for finishing them off....for some reason we haven't had many consecutive hot days in August this year up here." -Jon, Vancouver, BC, Canada, August 26, 2008
