Product Description

Color: Black

Dehydration is the healthiest, easiest, and most economical way to preserve foods. Load the trays and set the temperature, the Excalibur dries the contents of all trays evenly so everything's done at once. Dehydration concentrates the natural flavor, sweetness, and aromas of your food. Leaving you with a flavor that's far healthier than high-fat snacks and high-sugar candies that are filled with chemical preservatives. The Excalibur 5-Tray Small Garden dehydrator provides 8 square feet of drying space, and is perfect for families with small gardens. Includes flexible polyscreen tray inserts to prevent foods from sticking to trays, 5-Inch fan, built in on/off switch, and adjustable thermostat.

This Excalibur dehydrator has exceeded my expectations. It makes great organic, "less sweet" fruit rollups and dehydrates cooked broccoli to a crunchy treat. It does make more noise than a fan so make sure to put it away from your bedroom if you will be running it overnight. Make sure to buy the Paraflexx sheets sold separately if you intend to make rollups. The recipe book is very helpful and quite extensive. I'm delighted with it and wish I had purchased this dehydrator sooner.

I wanted to write a review after immediately trying it and an then do an update (in the near future). I have had the 5 tray model (2500) for three days. I was hesitant about getting the 5 tray since everyone says it is not large enough and to get the 9 tray. Since I live alone, I opted for the 5 tray. It's a nice looking machine with minimal parts. The trays are a little flimsy but sufficient. I had heard a lot of people complain about the noise but I don't think it is loud at all. Maybe the 9 tray has a larger fan making it loud but the 5 tray is like a box fan on medium speed.

The first thing I tried was Kale chips. Since kale is a leafy produce it is a bit high so you have to take out three trays to fit which only leaves you two trays of kale (Which isn't very much). I guess you could squash another tray in there but didn't want to try that for my first attempt. Already I am wishing on the 9 tray.
Kale came out pretty good. You really need to try and get the leaves as uniformed as possible since the smaller ones dried first and the larger ones were still a bit chewy in spots. Obviously you could leave the larger ones in longer. The yield was nice size bowl but would really like to have done more.
I know for almost all the other items: fruit, jerky, veg's., they are flat and five trays will be enough.
Next, I tried beef jerky. The EXC did a nice job but again, keep an eye for the proper time. I did mine for 6 hours and it was bit tough. I prefer them a bit more chewy. And, London Broil was better than Eye Round. Still experimenting on "with the grain" or "against".

The I tried an onion bread. Was in there for 15 hours and was cracker like (which I wanted). The EXC did a nice even job on them.

This is a great dehydrator that I recommend for all people who would like to save food in an economical way. The food is very, very tasty and also very convenient to use. Be careful of dehydrating onions though. I did and smelled up my house for weeks! The fan is loud and annoying to me but can't be helped. My kitchen is in the open right by the living room so we moved the dehydrator to a back bedroom and set it on a foldable table. That worked great until I did the onions and that stunk up the entire guest bedroom and I tried opening windows, washing bedding, putting out baking soda, and even coffee to try to deodorize the area. I also tried opening up windows and blowing fans--still have the smell. So, be careful of what you dehydrate.

This machine is the simplest when it comes to storage, use, and clean-up. It fits easily on my pantry shelf (sideways), though I have to say, I use it more than store it. I highly recommend buying the model with an automatic timer -- this way, you can turn it on and walk away.

The shelves are easy to load, insert, and eventually clean. The unit is quiet and uses very little electricity.

I was brand-new to dehydrating when I purchased the Excalibur. Now, I am a full-time convert!

Based on previous reviews I decided to buy this model. I got it to have more control about what's in the food I eat and to take dried veggies and fruits for our camping and hiking trips. I'm not disappointed.

Yes, the machine is huge, much bigger than I thought it would be and it takes a good space of the counter in my mini kitchen. So plan ahead, for me it means - no cooking while drying. When not in use make sure you have a lovely spot for it in some closet or move to a place with a bigger counter.

So far I have dried a variety of fruits, mostly apples, which all turn out to be delicious. Although it was already mentioned in the book (comes with the dehydrator), that Blueberries are not a good choice to dry, I wanted to try it out for myself. The result is - don't do it, believe what's written in the book.

Veggies, like celery, carrots and onions are extremely flavourful when revived in water. I couldn't believe it. It's important to cut everything as equal as possible. If you don't have a machine and only use your hands and a sharp kitchen knife, that's what I do, check the trays often once drying process has started.

Since this is the first time I'm using a dehydrator I'm not able to say if this one is the best on the planet, but I can say that 5 trays is the way to go. They are quickly filled up and whatever you dry it lasts for weeks, so don't hesitate to go for more trays.

I bought this 5-tray Excalibur 3500 dehydrator to handle my dehydrating needs mainly due to my son's peanut allergies. Much of the pre-packaged dehydrated and free dried foods have peanut warnings about possible contamination so I decided this product would help me to store food safely for my family, save storage space, and be safe in the knowledge that during an emergency I would not be putting my son in jeopardy by exposing him to peanut products.

The dehydrator is well made, is a bit loud running on my kitchen counter adjacent to the tv in the family room.

ACTUAL USE EXAMPLE: This 5-tray model holds 9 - 1lb 4oz cans of Walmart Pineapple Slices. It will take 14+ hrs at the recommended 135 degree heat setting to dry them depending on the surrounding environment. In the effort and time required to prepare for dehydrating...I now wish I had bought the 9 tray model, my only regret.

I am now buying some Mylar bags, oxygen absorbers, and a heat sealer to properly store my dehydrated food and lengthen its storage life. This will allow me to store 10x more food in the same space vs. leaving it in cans.

It takes time, but I start up the dehydrator on the weekends after breakfast and before midnight I am done. Just getting started, I would not call this a 'fun' activity but it makes one feel more in control of what is in my food stores vs. using things like the cannery or buying from factories that may not disclose possible peanut exposure that could put my son at risk precisely at times when emergency help may not be available.
