Air and light are your enemy when storing dehydrated food, so that said, much as I like the idea of repurposing beer kits and pringle tins, they wont' be airtight. You could vac pack and then store in the beer tins. :) or use any airtight jar/plastic container.

I don't find the smell too bad, just a normal cooking smell really, although I have been toying with the idea of dehydrating prawns as a treat for one of my cats and it's the expected smell that's putting me off!

Onions dry better if you very quickly blanch them first, at least they do in my dehydrator, and it tones the smell down too, everything else I have found bearable, I just run it in my kitchen.

Did you try the melon by the way Deeps?
Going on today mate, did pineapple last week and was away up a bothy at the weekend so I'll let you know how it went in a day or two. Cheers for the idea.
