It was a present for my son, who is very pleased with it. He said he would give it 6 stars & it's the best of it's kind on the market.
With 35 years of dehydrating excellence, Excalibur is the world's leading dehydrator manufacturer. The 4 tray dehydrator model is ideal if you either have a small kitchen or want to dehydrate smaller quantities of food. The drying process is very unique to Excalibur as it is the only machine that uses a Parallexx horizontal airflow drying system. With this unique design and technology dehydrating is quick and easy.
Excalibur has mastered their drying technology as cool air is drawn in the back, heated, and distributed evenly across each tray. During the dehydration process, warm air removes moisture from foods and is pushed out the front of the machine. The horizontal airflow feature in the Excalibur ensures even dehydration and eliminates the need to re-stack trays during the drying process.
Many round dehydrators cannot distribute heat as evenly as Excalibur dehydrators, resulting in a less controlled drying environment, an increase in time to dry, constant maintenance due to frequent tray re-stacking and cleaning due to spillages.
Removable trays let you dehydrate smaller and larger ingredients e.g. whole fruits compared to sliced fruits. The flexible mesh inserts are great for sticky foods as they stop anything from getting stuck to the trays and make cleaning that little bit easier.
Additionally, Excalibur’s adjustable thermostat offers the capability of perfect dehydration on every occasion ranging from 41°C - 74°C. You can dehydrate fruits, vegetables, nuts, meat for jerky, fruit puree for fruit roll-ups, raise bread or make homemade yoghurt.
