Excalibur Food Dehydrator
I thought I would share with you the type of food dehydrator that I use. For years I used a $20.00 small round food dehydrator and it worked great. But then I started wanting to dehydrate more and more and the little round one became too small.
After many days of research and reading about other people’s experiences I decided to purchase the Excalibur Food Dehydrator. It couldn’t have been a better choice.
It has a cover to enclose the unit as it dehydrates.
It has plenty of shelves to dehydrate a large quantity of food.
When I first bought this, it came with these plastic type liners to keep the food from falling through. I use them only when dehydrating things like beef jerky because it is so thick and needs a lot of air to dry and it they won’t fall through once they are dry.
I sent for these ParaFlexx Ultra Sheets after I purchased the unit and I put things like my fresh herbs on them because once herbs dry they tend to drop through the holes of the white liner. These sheets can also be used to make fruit leather. They were not cheap but worth the money and are much easier to clean than the white shelf sheets.
The Excalibur has a thermostat which is really nice! Check out all the different types of food you can Dehydrate along with making great yogurt and using it to raise bread! Some day I will post my homemade yogurt recipe showing how I use the Excalibur to make it. Yogurt is really easy and cheap to make! This Excalibur Food Dehydrator was worth every penny! http://www.InDianesKitchen.com
Very useful during winter !
More so in the summer with all our garden herbs and veggies!
Thanx Diane! We’ve been thinking about upgrading our little round one also…your info helped us decide.😁
You’re welcome! This is an amazing unit!
It definitely is! Thanks
That looks like the Cadillac of food dehydrators.
LOL wasn’t cheap and cheap ones will do the same thing, just takes longer. I do love it!
Love my Excaliber dehydrators! I have two. They are worth it just to make the best Kale Chips ever!!! I make them for church too. People are hooked on them and surprised how good they are. I have been offered payment to make them for people. They are not cheap to buy at the store, around seven dollars a bag, and the oven is just not the same for making them. 🙂
What a great idea!!! I made Zucchini chips in the oven. Never thought about doing it in my Excalibur! Thanks for the idea!!!
Super curious about the yogurt now – and we used to have the round (cheap) dehydrator in the 90s – this one looks amazing
You can buy the yogurt makers but they don’t make as much. To make yogurt it is all about temperature. It can be made and set in anything that will keep a consistent temperature. It is very easy to make. I promise I will post it in the future.
Ok – thanks and have a nice week
