The only drawback is that there is no drip pan, so as the moisture is removed it makes a mess at the bottom of the dehydrator.
We attempted to line the bottom with Al Foil and had mixed success. Will continue to improve the process.
Because the dehydrator is all one unit and the motorize back doesn't come off and the protection screen is almost flush with the base of the dehydrator it is hard to clean up any moisture that flows beneath the screen.
Easy fix is to put a shim or two under the back legs to cause the moisture to move forward. Will attempt this next time I make a batch.
I've used it to make organic dried fruits nectarines (wow), peaches (Holy Cr_p!), apples, bananas, pineapples, kiwi.
IT WILL MAKE YOUR HOUSE SMELL AWESOME!!!
The recipe books it comes with are very good and informative.
I've made organic blueberry and grape raisins to varying degrees of success.
I've made organic fruit roll-ups using flavored apple sauces. (ridiculously awesome)
Next year I'm planning on using mostly all my own home grown or fresh picked fruits.
I haven't even tapped into the potential for making taffy or jerky yet!
With 15 Square feet, you have plenty of drying surface. It's just enough that you don't get sick of trying to fill it.
Pouring a set of roll-ups takes about 30-40 minutes depending on how adept you become on smoothing them out. They take ~4 jars and ~5 hours to dry. Fruit slices take a little more prep time depending on what you're slicing, method, etc.
The trays are dishwasher safe, but stay pretty clean if you use parchment paper. They are also quite large. You might have to remove the upper dish rack or lay them flat.
There is plenty of volume inside this machine; which makes it very versatile. There are a whole bunch of people who have made their own drying racks for the inside to hang meats in different configurations.
As far as the fan volume... you can hear it. You wouldn't necessarily want it sitting next to you while you study. I had it in my kitchen temporarily, it wasn't that bad. Now it's in a spare room near the back door so I can release the heat if needed during the summer; and enter a nice warm room in the winter. But it's an oven; it runs; it has a fan; it generates heat. It also generates heavenly aromas! Who needs potpourri?
The only real disappointments:
I was trying to avoid plastic entirely and this unit does have plastic on the interior. But at least it is not on my drying surface.
The trays stick just a tiny bit when you're trying to insert them, every now and then; so they could have given a little more leeway on the angle tolerances there.
Otherwise an absolutely fantastic device!
The stainless trays are nice, and I find them reasonably easy to wash in the sink. Overall, this has been a great addition to our kitchen. We can now dry herbs and food in larger quantities. The dehydrator comes with a book that had a lot of ideas, and is easy to follow.
Then the Excalibur arrived on my doorstep the other day and after the initial shock of how enormous the thing was (it's huge!), I put in my first batch of jerky. Not only did it make twice the amount of jerky, it did it in less than half the time. I win!
If you're going to do any significant amount of dehydrating, save yourself the trouble and just get this one!
