Product Description

Color: Black

Excalibur 3900B 9 Tray Excalibur Black

The 3900B Deluxe Dehydrator by Excalibur comes with 9 trays and a total of 15 square feet of drying space. The adjustable thermostat temperature control ranges from 105 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit, making it safe to dehydrate meat for jerky. The fan, heating element and thermostat are in the back of the unit, so cool air is drawn in, heated and then distributed evenly over each tray. This patented Parallex Horizontal Airflow is exclusive to Excalibur and helps the food dehydrate faster, retain more nutrients, and look and taste better – all without manual tray rotation. Since 1973, Excalibur has been made in Sacramento, California. Over the years, Excalibur has taken the lead in advancements related to the mechanics of dehydration including air flow, heating dynamics, and materials.

Any dehydrator will dry food. An Excalibur dries safer, better, and faster, thanks to Excalibur's patented Hyperwave Fluctuation technology. Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat, which can cause"case hardening." Ordinary dehydrators create a dry surface with moisture trapped inside – the perfect environment for yeast, mold and bacteria growth. With the Excalibur Hyperwave Fluctuation technology, the temperature fluctuates up and down to prevent this from happening. When the air temperature fluctuates up, the food's surface moisture evaporates; then, when the air temperature fluctuates down, the the inner moisture moves to the drier surface. This keeps the food temperature low enough to keep the enzymes active, but the air temperature gets high enough to dry food and overcome yeast, mold, and spoilage.

Product Features

  • 9 trays and 15 square feet of drying space.
  • No moving food or trays during dehydration.
  • Adjustable Thermostat 105 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Safe to dry meat for jerky.
  • Accurate temperature controls to dry fruits, vegetables, meats, flowers, herbs, pet treats, arts & crafts.
  • Dehydrate faster with square trays that hold more food.
  • Remove trays as needed to increase the height needed to dehydrate bulky items or raise dough.
  • 7-inch fan, 600 watts. Unit Dimensions: 12-1/2 H x 17 W x 19 D (inches)

Color Name: Black
I've used virtually every dehydrator on the market and even a few home-made versions. Trust me when I say that this dehydrator is the best you can get for the money.

The round tower-type dehydrators are inexpensive for a good reason: they aren't worth it.
-The trays are flimsy and crack too easily.
-The holes on these trays are too big to use with herbs or diced foods, so you must use the mesh inserts.
-You only have about 1/2" of space between trays, so you cannot dry bulky items--like flowers or granola.
-When it comes to fruit leather, the only thing more inefficient than the round shape is the hole in the middle. Yes, I know they come with fruit leather trays, but have you ever tried to store fruit leather pealed off of the tray and rolled up? A shredded mess to begin with and a sticky mess once they've stored for a while.
-With the motor on the bottom any food or juices that fall through the cracks shortens the life of the machine.
-The drying process in these tower-types is not uniform--the bottom trays dry quicker than the top trays, the center dries quicker than the edges.
-Some models have only recently started adding temp controls. Still, it does little good because there is more heat on the bottom than the top.
-The motor is loud--I had one model I had to run on the porch because it was so loud.
The two round models I bought died within a year and a half of use.

The next best dehydrator on the market is the L'Eqip. It is much quieter, comes with a healthy 10yr warranty and has temperature controls. But it is a hybrid with many of the faults of the round models and few of the benefits of the square-shaped Excalibur. It still has a hole in the middle. It still dries unevenly.

We absolutely love our excalibur dryer - it works so much better than the cheaper, round versions that are out there. However, there are a few things we hadn't considered prior to buying that we wish we had:

*****This model has no timer, thus no auto-off. If I had it to do over again I'd buy the one with the 26 hour timer for sure! We recently started a recipe only to realize it would be done at 4 a.m. - ugh! not a fun time to get up just to shut off the dryer!!

*****There is no on/off switch, just the plug. I don't know if the model with the timer has an on off button or not, but I really hate items that don't offer one. Perhaps this is no biggie to most folks, but it really bugs me.

*****This thing is BIG! We had to do some serious rearranging to make room for it on our counter, and unfortunately the only place it fits is right in the middle so that it's the first thing you see when looking at our kitchen from the den (we have an open concept floor plan). It is also so big that we cannot fit it in any of our kitchen cabinets or drawers. So, we either have to leave it out on the counter all the time (and it aint' pretty - just a big black box) or we have to carry it into the garage.

*****If you don't get a deal that offers the teflex and plastic mesh sheet liners with it (enough for every tray) than be sure to buy them - you will need them for most recipes.

*****If you're not going fully raw or making massive quantities for a large family you may want to consider the smaller ones so that the size doesn't become a big issue for you as it has for us.

All-in-all this dryer is the top in dehydrators for good reason and you'd be doing yourself a disservice to buy a different brand. However, consider the issues I listed above to help you get the best set up for your situation.

NOTE: Some folks have posted good solutions to the timer issue in the comments - take a look.

I've had my Excalibur for a while now and use it on a regular basis. Before purchasing it, I tried several of the round type, including the Gardenmaster. This dehydrator beats the round variety as it has the side fan and adjustable thermostat. The side fan means you very rarely have to rotate trays and it cuts the drying time. The Excalibur is also much easier to clean than the round dehydrators. Besides using it for drying food, I take the trays out and use it to raise bread and make yogurt. Don't bother with the 5 tray version - you'll wish you had went for the 9 tray instead. The added height inside the 9 tray makes it easy to use for raising a bowl of bread dough.

Color Name: White
I purchased my White 9 tray Excalibur 3000 series 2 years ago and I'm so very pleased that I did!

I purchased it directly from Excaliber and not through Amazon or any of its third party sellers. At the time, Excaliber/KBI direct was the only way to purchase the 3000 series white model but the price was good, shipping free, the service excellent ~ plus, and a big plus with me, a free 10 year warranty!

As it is quite a large(but light-weight)appliance, the white is less imposing than the black model in my small white kitchen. It has worked exceedingly well to meet the requirements of my raw vegan diet. It did get a lot of use the first year that I had it, more so then than now. I have been eating less dehydrated food so don't use it as often as I first did but still I find it easy to use and handy when I do need a dehydrator and I'm glad to have one.

My only problem, and it's a minor one, is the noise. It is not especially quiet but I still give it 5 stars. I have remedied the problem easily enough by simply moving it to another room when I am dehydrating an item that requires a longer drying period, such as the tomatoes I'm dehydrating right now which have been drying for 3 days at low temperature.

If you are shopping for a good dehydrator, Excalibur is the one to buy. I recommend getting the 9 trays too. You'll be glad to have them over the smaller ones. And do shop around for the best price and consider Excaliber for that warranty.
