With 35 years of manufacturing experience, the Excalibur 5 Tray Stackable can create a range of dried snacks including fruits, vegetables, herbs, fish and meat. These tasty dried snacks can then be stored for later or eaten straight away, as the drying process enhances the original flavours. For those who are following a raw food lifestyle, Paleo diet, Atkins diet or 5:2 diet, this dehydrator will help you achieve your goals. The 5 tray stackable is unique to Excalibur as it's a vertical dehydrator, which saves space in on the countertop.
The Excalibur Dehydrator features five removable polycarbonate BPA free stackable inserts that are dishwasher safe for your convenience. These trays allow for continuous airflow around the ingredients, and with the adjustable thermostat, you get the best drying results. Different ingredients need different drying times and temperatures, for example, meat needs a much high temperature to kill bacteria whilst fruit and vegetables need a lower temperature, which helps preserve their enzymatic value. The Excalibur 5-tray Stackable Food Dehydrator can bring a lot to your kitchen and can produce a range of dehydrated foods, including jerky, dried herbs, dried fruit and fruit leather.
The appliance comes with an adjustable thermostat, that ranges between 35°C - 74°C, this temperature will cover a whole host of ingredients. Another great aspect of the 5 Tray Stackable is the built-in safety cut out, which stops the dehydrator from overheating.
With polypropylene trays you don’t have to worry about corrosion or your food absorbing the taste of the plastic, so you can enjoy rich original flavours. The 5 tray stackable has a completely different design to other Excalibur models as its much more streamlined with curved edges, making it easier to fit on your countertop. With a dimension of just 33.1 cm x 31.6 cm it still offers almost 5 square feet of drying area across 5 stacking trays, which is ideal if you don’t plan on bulk drying. Overall, this device has a lot of functionality in a very compact design that runs incredibly quietly.
The device also comes with a few accessories to get you started. These include 4 yoghurt cups, 2 drying sheets and 5 flexible mesh tray inserts. Furthermore, the trays within the dehydrator are completely removable and dishwasher friendly to make your life a bit easier. Excalibur went above and beyond to make this an easy to clean device while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
