Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Needles Excellent product
I brought my dehydrator a few weeks ago and am very impressed with it's performance. Very well made and ease of use. Everything i've dehydrated has been perfect. Havn't bothered with the stove since i purchased my excalibur. Thank you so much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Best Dehydrator!
I will buy Excalibur every time I need a dehydrator from now on and recommend them to anyone! Also I must recommend getting one with a timer, I will never go back to non-timer machines! Excalibur is great because you don't have to rotate your trays due to the fan being in the back of the machine (no drips on the fan anymore)! This dehydrator does an excellent job dehydrating and is better constructed than you might think. For home use this is the unit to buy. Its very simple to use! Relatively quiet - We've had it running for very long time periods with no noise issues. It's not silent, yet it's not annoying. Can't say enough about it! I love to dehydrate frozen veggies, my favorite being corn, its good just as a stand alone snack!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GardenerGeorge Awesome Product, use it weekly!
I've had this model for just over a year, and I love it. I'm a 23 year-old male living alone, and I have trouble eating all my fruit before it gets too ripe, but I just smash it, or blend it, or chop it and toss it in my dehydrator for a few hours and BOOM, snacks for work. Love it. I'd recommend Excalibur to anyone looking for a good dehydrator.
One thing that could be improved, since there is always something, I wish the trays were a little sturdier, you have to be careful when they are fully loaded with heavy fruits like pineapple.

Well, I have one too. I should use it more. Make sure you pat your meats relatively dry. I run mine outside because it makes the house smell delicious. I also have made treats for my dogs since I don't buy the Chinese imports.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lindita726 Great for many things!
I have owned this for a few years, but I moved out of the country and gave it to my sister-in-law. I used it a ton. It is a bit spendy, but a great investment. I've made things like tortilla chips to kale chips, fruit leathers, jerky...so great. I will be buying a new one soon now that I am back in the US again!

We love your Excalibur! We purchased the 9 tray with timer and it has worked wonders for us. We have four kids so they each get a tray to dehydrate what fruit or veggie they want and that leaves me plenty of trays left over to dehydrate what I need to. I also love being able to purchase food when its in season and dehydrate it to use during the Winter months when the price of food doubles or triples. I used to waste so much food because I would only need a 1/4 to 1/2 of what I was purchasing but now we dehydrate the leftovers and throw it into stews and Harvest Soups. Its saved us so much money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doglover Wonderful product!
I bought this several years ago to dry persimmons and other fruits and meat jerky for my dogs. It works great, and I use it all year round, especially in the fall when I dry hundreds of persimmons. It's durable as sometimes I run it everyday for weeks. I highly recommend this dehydrator. It only takes 4 hours to dry beef chunks for my dogs, and they're salt and preservative free.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Catalina Espinal Vargas I bought 1 and was so satisfied I bought another 2
I bought 3 of this dehydrators as I have so much produce to dry (I am starting a familybusiness). I was satisfied when I bought the first one and 7 months later I bought 2 more. I am very happy with the dehydrators, they are silent, pretty and most importantly, the produce comes out perfectly (flavor, color and smell wise, people can tell the difference). Both the trays and the machine itself are easy to clean (eventhough I want the stainless steel dehydrators and trays and I may sell this 3 dehydrators to my friends and go buy those ones)
Why not 5 starts?
1. I think, but I am not sure (I need a device to measure properly), that they consume a lot of energy (come on: 600watts an hour? - or please explain me how is the energy cylce... how the energy is consumed...) so it could be more efficient in that aspect.
2. One of the dehydrators had the timer detached when it arrived (I didn't bought it from this site but from amazon so it was sent overseas). I know this may not be a manufacturer problem but a shipping problem, but I think Excalibur must have a distributor in my country and I think that when I make a purchase I buy not only the product but the customer service and everything around the product itself. So the 5th start is going to come when a Excalibur distributor sells me this products in my country, with customer service and full warranty.
Anyway, I would recommend this product because it delivers what it promises: great dried fruits, veggies, snacks... :)
