Excalibur 4 Tray Food Dehydrator (No Timer)KT-DE-EX-4T-AU-BL
The Excalibur 4 Tray enables you to dry fruit, vegetables, create a plentiful supply of snacks and other wholesome raw living foods quickly and easily, preserving their nutrients and enzymes.
The Excalibur 4 Tray Food Dehydrator is an excellent starter model in the Excalibur range, and performs to the same excellent standard as the 5 Tray and 9 Tray models.
Paralexx™ drying system with Hyperwave™ fluctuation
The 4 Tray model uses the same Excalibur Paralexx™ drying system which reliably provides your ingredients with uniform and fast drying. The horizontal airflow created inside the dehydrator ensures even distribution of the heat and fine temperature control, eliminating the need to re-stack trays during use.
Unlike most dehydrators that keep temperature constant, the Excalibur's thermostat uses Hyperwave™ fluctuation to vary heat during the drying cycle. The heat fluctuation eliminates 'case hardening' - food that has dried surfaces with trapped moisture inside. Case hardening increases the risk of mould, yeast and bacterial growth - Hyperwave™ fluctuation ensures the Excalibur dries food without any case hardening or residual moisture.
A trusted and safe best-seller
The Excalibur is a best-seller worldwide: it is engineered to give high quality reliable performance and has been trusted for over 30 years. Its case is manufactured from FDA-approved food contact polycarbonate that does not produce any harmful fumes while in use, unlike cheaper styrene dehydrators. The tray screens are manufactured from BPA-free polypropylene #5, the safest plastic for food contact.
All Excalibur dehydrators are sturdy and easy to clean.
The thermostat ranges from 35ºC to 68ºC and provides fine-grain control on temperature and precision drying. The range is low enough to preserve living nutrients but high enough to make meat jerky safely.
Teflex sheets (optional accessory sold separately)
These reusable food-grade solid sheets coated in teflon are ideal for dehydrating roll-ups, fruit purée and semi-liquid / sticky foods, which would normally drip through the tray's included mesh sheet.
The sheets measure 35 cm x 35 cm so will not sit flush inside the tray, but can be cut down to size easily.
You can make these living foods easily with the Excalibur:
- Sprouted seed crackers
- Dried fruit
- Dried nuts
- Fruit roll-ups (Teflex sheet recommended)
- Dried herbs
- Help raise bread
- Beef jerky
Now you can enjoy healthy, easy, raw living food with one of the world's best quality dehydrators!
