Excalibur EXD500W 5 Tray Excalibur White
The EXD500W by Excalibur comes with 5 trays, a total of 8 square feet of drying space. The adjustable thermostat temperature control ranges from 95◦F to 155◦F 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 to dehydrate faster, retain more nutrients and look and taste better, without 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 better, faster & safer thanks to Excalibur's patented Hyperwave Fluctuation technology. Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat causing 'case hardening.' Basically a dry surface with moisture trapped inside – the perfect environment for yeast, mold and bacteria growth. With the Excalibur Hyperwave Fluctuation technology the air temperature fluctuates up and the food's surface moisture evaporates, then the air temperature fluctuates down and 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, overcoming yeast, mold, and spoilage.
- 5 trays and 8 square feet of drying space.
- No moving food or trays during dehydration.
- Adjustable Thermostat 95◦F to 155◦F. 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.
- 5-inch fan, 440 watts. Unit Dimensions: 8-1/2 H x 17 W x 19 D (inches)
- Made in the USA.

The Excalibur dehydrator comes with two books. The smaller one gives you a quick and dirty guide on how to use the unit to dehydrate various types of food along with some ruminations on "living food." I haven't really paid much attention to the latter, being a nuts-and-bolts sort of gal when it comes to the hands-on part of cooking. But I imagine it will be of interest to people who embrace the whole raw food scene. The larger one is a more detailed explanation of the hows, how longs, and how hots. It also appears that you can use the Excalibur dehydrator to do a lot more than stocking up on fruitcake ingredients and turning meat into jerky. You can make fruit leathers, fruit and vegetable powders, raise bread dough, make yogurt and even cheese in the Excalibur. That makes it a pretty handy machine to have around the house.Read more ›
Currently the cost of the Excalibur EXD500B is currently listed at $184.19. A bit pricy, I know. There are other models ranging from $159.99 to $223.95 (as of 12/03/2013.) Still pricy and if you've had a bad experience with dehydrators, this might seem like a ridiculous amount to spend. All dehydrators are the same, right? Wrong! How the air circulates around the food makes a huge difference. My dried veggies went from leathery (with the previous machines) to crispy.
Another plus, is the trays have a polyscreen insert that can easily be removed for cleaning. These inserts sit in a plastic frame and the trays slide in and out of the machine. With my previous dehydrators, the trays stacked on top of each other. The motor/fan was either on top or on bottom. With the Excalibur, the motor and fan are located in the back, positioning the fan at the side (or back). This allows more air is to flow through the trays. The fan is fairly loud, but so were my other two dehydrators.
Back to the trays. This model has five 15' x 15" trays. The whole thing (16-1/2" x 19") is fairly large.Read more ›
