Should I buy a toaster oven with a dehydration option?

Toaster ovens with dehydrator option: any good? If it has it, is it comparable to food dehydrator quality dehydration? Any other positive experiences with particular toaster oven features or brands?

Every time I've tried to buy a toaster oven combined with some other function (convection springs to mind), I've been disappointed. Both the toaster and the other function seem to be given short shrift when combined.

I wouldn't bother, if you seriously have a need for a food dehydrator the form factor of a toaster oven is going to limit your space to a crippling degree. For example, Nesco dehydrators allow vertical expansion by simply purchasing extra trays - they come with four - as an estimate, I'd imagine a single tray would have twice as much surface area as the dimensions a toaster oven rack would allow for.
