EXCALIBUR Food Dehydrator

EXCALIBUR food dehydrator

The EXCALIBUR food dehydrator company has been in business making dehydrators for over thirty years! They offer four-tray starter models all the way up to nine-tray models, and they make Commercial dehydrators too.

I own the one above, namely the 4-tray Excalibur dehydrator shown in the photo.

This EXCALIBUR® dehydrator I use is the four-model tray and offers no on/off switch.

Higher grade EXCALIBUR® food dehydrator models DO have an on/off switch!

Excalibur Models have Parallexx Airflow

EXCALIBUR food dehydrator

Excalibur food dehydrators are the only dehydrators with the unique Parallexx Horizontal Airflow Drying System. This basically means that the circulating fan is at the rear.

The larger capacity you go with EXCALIBUR® dehydrators, the larger the circulating fan and wattage. And the more food you'll be able to dehydrate in one sitting! The plastic exterior body of the dehydrator is molded to look like leather (I think!)

Temperature Selector On Top

EXCALIBUR temperature selector

EXCALIBUR® dehydrators have their temperature selector on the top and is easy to read and use. These dehydrators have trays that pull out from the front, like a chest of drawers.

You simply slide up the front panel to take it out of the dehydrator for easy access to the trays.

Excalibur Food Dehydrator:
Features Pull-out Trays; Rear Fans

I have found the pull-out trays to be a real handy feature/bonus of the EXCALIBUR® dehydrator as you can proof your bread dough, by taking out the top trays and just leaving in the bottom tray!

NOTE: Don't try proofing bread in a four-tray dehydrator model. There's not enough height to the unit—unless you're doing hot-dog-type buns; use a 9-tray model for proofing loaves of bread!

You can find this starter Excalibur dehydrator on Amazon.

9-Tray Models Great For Proofing Bread!

Simply set the dehydrator temperature to 115°F and let it warm up. Place a shallow pan of water on the very bottom and put one tray directly above it with the bowl of dough placed on that tray.

Cover your dough with a cloth to keep it from drying out! Let it sit for up to an hour—whatever your bread recipe calls for!

Rotate the Trays

I have noticed that the trays in the middle dry faster, so, like the other Nesco® dehydrator I rotate these trays too! Not only from top to bottom, etc. but also turn the dehydrator trays 180 degrees as the fan is located at the back of the machine and obviously dries out food faster that are closest to the fan.

The EXCALIBUR® dehydrator company offers Spices and Jerky supplies, along with Books, and Raw & Living Food Helpers. You can also purchase ParaFlexx non-stick Drying Sheets for making fruit roll ups!

What's the Difference?

If you're curious about the difference between a Nesco and an Excalibur dehydrator, head on over to my Podcast. It's episode #9. In that Podcast, I explain the pros and cons.

I have one of each; meaning a 4-tray starter Nesco and 4-tray starter Excalibur.

What size dehydrator you choose largely depends on how much and how often you will be dehydrating your fresh fruits and vegetables (and cooked meats). There's only me and hubby at home, so the starter models fit my needs perfectly.

Don't forget, when you buy a Nesco, though, you can easily add trays. Can't say the same thing for an Excalibur dehydrator. All you can do is eliminate trays! And that simple tray elimination is one of the bonuses of an Excalibur. Yes, you read earlier that you can proof a loaf of bread in an Excalibur dehydrator!
