Product Overview

Dehydration is the healthiest, easiest and most economical way to preserve foods. Load the trays and set the temperature, the Excalibur dries the contents of all trays evenly so everything's done at once. Dehydration concentrates the natural flavor, sweetness and aromas of your food. Leaving you with a flavor that's far healthier than high-fat snacks and high-sugar candies that are filled with chemical preservatives. The Excalibur 9-Tray Large Dehydrator provides 15 sq. ft. of drying space making this the biggest and best there is. Ideal for large families, large gardens, craftspeople and sportsmen. Includes flexible polyscreen tray inserts to prevent foods from sticking to trays, 7 in. fan, built-in on/off switch and adjustable thermostat.
  • 9 trays and 15 sq. ft. of drying space provides extra large capacity
  • Trays do not need to be moved or rotated during operation
  • Adjustable thermostat 95° to 155°F, safe to dry meat for jerky
  • Accurate temperature controls to dry fruits, vegetables, meats, flowers, herbs, pet treats, arts and crafts
  • Remove trays as needed to increase the height needed to dehydrate bulky items or raise dough
  • Perfect for large families and gardens

What a great machine
I bought this years ago for my wife and daughter but they quickly lost interest in dehydrating. Probably for several reasons, which are not attributed to the quality of the Excalibur. I have taken it over and started making snacks for my diabetic needs. What a wonderful dehydrator, a little on the noisy side but very fine. Easy to keep clean and for an old guy that's a plus. I will upgrade some time in the future but it will be an Excalibur. A few photo's of my first time with the tools and food.

    Have 4, Absolutely Love Them.
    I've had mine for a few years now, and they work like champs. They dehydrate their contents evenly and reliably, and I have yet to encounter any problems. I also love it when manufacturers are willing to put their money where their mouth is (10 year warranty). A huge +++ when deciding which product to purchase.

      Top ten food tool
      Our 3900 is celebrating its 10th birthday, so I thought I'd finally write a review. I have used this machine extensively to dry all manner of veg, tree fruit, berries, herbs, meats, tree nuts, mushrooms, cheese, and more...and also my favorite brand of utility work gloves after I wash them. I've proofed dough in it, turned shopping windfalls of organic applesauce and low salt tomato sauce and pumpkin into fruit leather, revived crackers, cookies, and rolled oats from our humid rainforest climate, and even once used it to rescue a 1927 cookbook that got water spilled on it. I still have my 25-year-old round dehydrator and dozen trays…but rarely use it. I bought the Excalibur 3900 because of the limits of the round tool, like having to constantly swap trays of moist/succulent foods from bottom to top to bottom. I hesitated to buy for about ten years because the price tag looked steep, and I already had the other one. Then I translated the price tag of the Excalibur into what we were paying for just one store-boughten product: my husband's favorite of sun dried tomatoes in olive oil, of which we used about four big jars every two months. With the 3900 I began producing the same at home for pennies AND making good use of our own and friends' surplus tomato summer oversupply. (It's fine to have a composting system when the garden "runs ahead," but it's better to process food daily as it comes in.) So I set aside a little money each week for a year, bought the tool…and have never had a moment's regret. The capacity is excellent. I rarely need a timer, and use an in-line one when I do. I either prep foods for starting early in the morning, letting them run during the day, and finishing/storing before bed (moister foods like peppers and tomatoes that dry faster if you rotate the trays 180 degrees halfway through), or prep them to dry overnight (things like mushrooms or nuts that don't require any rotating to dry quickly). It just gets to be a habit to throw extras in the Excalibur. It is amazing how much less space dehydrated food takes up in the pantry or the freezer (I put dehydrated thinly sliced meat there), compared to conventional canning or freezing! Example: I just processed eight pounds of big red bell peppers--into three standard pint canning jars (vacuum sealed using my favorite manual vac tool). Plus unlike freezing, we don't need to keep using energy to sustain the food's quality. And finally, we end up eating more vegetables because a) we invest the time and labor to prepare them all at once, and b) they taste fabulous. I still do conventional stovetop pressure/steam bath canning of some things, like Pennsylvania German apple butter (family tradition). But dehydration takes so much less time and energy…and after all our ancestors routinely used hot summer days to sun-/air-dehydrate before the advent of electricity…and USDA Extension methods of food preservation involving big inputs of stovetop energy.

        problems with the white one
        I have two 9 tray dehydrators, which I've had for about 4 years. I have had no problems with the black one. Would recommend the black one. The white one is a different story. The solid door did not close properly from the get go, and now there are solid straight through cracks across the top and the side of the white one. I have had to tape it. Has not been treated poorly, I think there are material flaws in the white ones.

          Best dehydrator that I have ever owned
          I have been making beef jerky with a dehydrator for over twenty years. During that time I have owned several brands and types. I bought this unit a little over a month ago after my Weston unit quit on me. I have made two batches of jerky with this machine. It is by far is best dehydrator that I have used. It is quicker and thoroughly dried the meat. Every piece came out the same. Perfect! I bought the stainless steel racks. I am glad that I did. They are awesome.

            I love my Excalibur dehydrator, In my first week of owning it, I dried ar least 15 different fruits and veggies and beef jerky. If you cut items thin, they dry quicker and nicer. Only drawbacks are the 600 watts all day on the PG&E and the added heat to the kitchen, it is 112 degrees here this time of year, so I can't dehydrate as often as I'd like and heat up the kitchen further as the unit does add a lot of heat. I tried Dried tomatoes, snap peas and snow peas, apples, mango, jalapeños, onions, bananas, plums, strawberries, bell peppers, oranges, lemons, garlic, ginger and flank steak beef jerky in week 1, and I plan to do figs, more mango and fruit roll ups this week. I have two other food dehydrators, this is by far my favorite due to its huge size and accommodating 9 trays, and a 10 year warranty, this was a great purchase that I am very happy with.
