My fan burned out like so many other owners, but I had a PC fan so it was a quick and easy fix. The nice thing about it is that it folds away very compact... I only make biltong occasionally and having a dryer that can slide into a small space in the kitchen is useful... That being said, I would not doubt that a DIY dryer could easily be waaaaaaay better quality... The Mellerware is a bit flimsy and can easily be broken if not handled properly.
