Paralexx™ drying system with Hyperwave™ fluctuation
The Excalibur dehydrator uses unique and patented air-flow mechanics to produce even and fast drying, every single time. The Paralexx™ drying system of horizontal airflow eliminates the need to re-stack trays, and allows for fine control of temperature as no heat is lost during the drying cycle.
Most food dehydrators keep temperature constant, causing 'case hardening': food dried on the surface with remaining moisture still trapped inside - this moisture differential increases the risk of bacterial, yeast and mould growth. The Excalibur's thermostat creates a Hyperwave™ fluctuation and varies heat through the drying cycle, eliminating 'case hardening' and delivering dried food without any residual moisture, dry enough to be powdered!
A versatile best-seller
The Excalibur has 5 fully removable stainless steel trays, letting you customise the drying space according to your own needs. The Excalibur is a best-selling food dehydrator worldwide for good reason: it is made to a high engineering quality and gives reliable performance, time after time. Unlike cheaper and low-quality styrene dehydrators, the Excalibur will not produce harmful fumes while in use.
All Excalibur dehydrators are sturdy and easy to clean.
Adjustable thermostat and timer
The thermostat ranges from 41°C to 74°C and provides fine-grain control on temperature and precision drying. The range is low enough to preserve living nutrients but high enough to meet safety standards when making meat jerky.
The timer adds convenience: load the trays, set your desired drying time and come back to perfect results! The Excalibur will turn off automatically once the timer has stopped.
Teflex and Silicone sheets (optional accessories sold separately)
These reusable food-grade solid sheets coated in teflon or silicone are ideal for dehydrating roll-ups, fruit purée and semi-liquid / sticky foods, which would normally drip through the tray's included mesh sheet.
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
- Beef jerky
Now you can enjoy healthy, easy, raw living food with one of the world's best quality heavy-duty dehydrators!
All Excalibur models come with a soft cover 28 page Dehydrator Guide that contains food preparation tips and ‘how to’ drying guide for 50 fruits and vegetables plus fruit rolls, and jerky.
The 5 tray model also comes with a 48 hour digital timer, a 26 hour timerand without a timer. Please note: if you intend to make yoghurt, you should look at one of the digital models instead, as their temperature range starts at 35°C.
