Parallex Horizontal Airflow
Excalibur’s patented Parallex Horizontal Airflow provides fast, even dehydrating. The fan, heating element, and thermostat are in the back. Cool air is drawn in, heated, and distributed evenly over the trays.
Hyperwave Fluctuation Technology
With the Excalibur Hyperwave Fluctuation technology 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. 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.
Dehydrate Fruits and Vegetables or Meat and Fish for Jerky. Re-crisp breads, crackers, etc. Make soup mixes and reconstitute later.
Make healthy, preservative-free, fruit roll-ups and other snacks that kids of all ages will enjoy
Make all-natural, healthy pet treats.

This dehydrator fits on my kitchen counter under the cabinets just fine and it has enough capacity to do a five pound bag of sliced potatoes plus several trays of other produce at the same time. My other dehydrator could manage about 3 pounds of sliced potatoes at best, so I love having more capacity.
I'm still fairly new to food dehydration so I refer to a book I bought for the proper way to prepare food items and for drying time and temperature, then I follow those directions and I'm having nothing but success so far. My other dehydrator had open plastic mesh trays that food items could fall through as they dried, but that isn't a concern thanks to the poly-screen tray inserts in this Excalibur.
Now I can shred potatoes and dry them in order to have hash browns on hand whenever we want them without having them slip through the screens as they dry. By the way, we rehydrated some to see what they were like and it's like having freshly shredded potatoes. So much more useful for what we want to do than canning! (Now I have a large All American Pressure Canner I no longer want)
I bought some non-stick liners to use when making fruit leather but haven't tried it yet. This dehydrator seems to get much better air flow through the trays than my other one did because vegetables are drying more quickly even though they're set at the same temperature they were in the other machine. It does produce some fan noise, but nothing that I find obnoxious. It's easy to operate, signals when the time is up, and the trays are super easy to clean up so I'm very happy with the purchase. I think small dehydrators are useful as a way to learn about dehydrating foods, but this is a model I'd recommend getting if you're serious about doing it.
- It's big, but it does fit under my cabinet
- I *like* the timer and my wife loves it. Making my wife happy was worth the $50 price difference vs the non-timer Excalibur.
- It's not nearly as noisy as some crybabies make it out to be. It has a fan, it makes a whirring noise. I have no problems having a normal conversation in my kitchen with it running. I leave it on overnight and don't hear a thing from my bedroom. The dog doesn't howl at it.
- Fairly easy to clean, seems to be a decent quality items, I've had zero issues with it after owning and using for a bit over three months. We've used it roughly a dozen times.
- Glad we made the purchase.
The old one's design is entirely different than the new one. The door hangs on to the front of the new machine rather than being VELCROED on and lifts off easily, and yes the velcro on the 35 year old one is still good although I had to reglue it back on a few weeks ago. But staying on for 35 years is nothing to sneeze at! However, it's plastic shelves had started to droop, making for uneven drying of leathers--but that's no big deal because people start to droop after 35 years, too! So, I bought new stainless shelves for the old one. They have not changed the demensions of these things for at least 35 years so brand new stainless mesh shelves fit my ancient dehydrator perfectly.
The new one has a timer and a wider range of temps. You will need to set time on the new one to start it running if you get the one with the timer. The old one just has a knob that sets the temp and starts it running. The new ones's knobs are on the top. The old one's knobs are on the front and to the side. The new one has a fan and heater in the back. The old one has the fan and heater to the side, and blows the air out of the shelf brackets which are perforated with little holes. The new one's design is much better than the old one and easier to clean. The new one's stainless door is opaque--of course--while the old one's door is darkened translucent plastic.But the old one is still running fine after 35 years so there's no room for improvement. It even outlasted my late husband who bought it for me!
I made some amazing smoked salmon and chinese beef jerky and about a dozen different types of fruit leather over about a 3 week period.The dehydrator is great to raise bread, dry nylons or lingerie, or put that "glaze" on the brined salmon for perfect smoking in your smoker! I've made two batches in the last two weeks and they are both almost completely gone. I was using both of them nearly constantly and there was no indication of any malfunction or strain on the machine.
I had to develop my own recipe for the chinese beef jerky to make it like the stuff I used to buy in Chinatown in San francisco and that was completely done in the dehydrator. YUM. I also developed my own recipe for rose hip fruit leather! YUM. All of these were lept upon and devoured by a crowd of very hungry people.
I also sprung for their silicone rubber sheets--ordered one set for the new one and then a second one for the old dehydrator because they worked so well. I even had a "dehydrate-off" pitting the old one with the new one and neither outperformed the other and both worked perfectly. I still have two sets of the teflon sheets that I bought for the old one and they fit the new one perfectly. I've also just gotten some of their disposable 14x14 sheets that are non stick and appear to be like bakers parchment. I plan to do some more fruit leather as soon as I can go out and get more fruit! Excaliburs are absolutely wonderful, and they do a great job. However, the one suggestion I can make is to not bother to replace your drooping plastic shelves with another set of plastic ones if you've lost your "mesh" that came with them. The mesh has to be bought separately. When you add up the cost of buying new plastic shelves and new mesh,you may as well just spring for an entire new set of stainless shelves because you won't need the mesh with them.
Plus for those of you who think they are noisy--they are about the same as a convection oven or a breeze box fan on medium. The lovely white noise they put out can put me to sleep in about 15 minutes--because I have to keep a fan running to sleep because of a very noisy snoring husband. So GET USED TO IT. It will be worth it.
