Yeah the extra 40 bucks for the better model is the way to go if you plan on doing a fair bit of dehydrating; as you may want to add more trays in the future. The FD-35 is good for 7 but the FD-60 is good for 12, and the FD-60 tray structure has better air circulation.
With our now 10 trays, we can dehydrate a good 15 lbs of peaches at a time (so far we've done 70 lbs this season).
