Excalibur Dehydrator

Excalibur Dehydrator

We love this dehydrator!  Not only do we love eating dried fruit and veggies for a healthy quick snack but we also love how we rarely have to throw anything away anymore.  We honestly dehydrate EVERYTHING!  These are the regulars though: kale, jalapenos, tofu for jerky, mango, apples, bananas, string beans, pineapple, tomatoes, kiwi… and I could go on!

A good dehydrator like the one we have will be a little expensive but it has already paid for itself.  We can’t speak highly enough.  If you have the room and the funds we highly recommend the Excalibur Economy with 9 trays.  The temperature range is 105 to 165 degrees F and we have found this has worked great for everything that we dehydrate.  Also, nine trays may seem excessive but we love having the option and it is regularly filled especially during peak harvest time.  Another perk is that the trays are square shaped which allows one to rotate them as needed.  The middle trays always seem to dry a little faster so it’s nice to have the option to move them around.

Lastly, we also love having Teflon food dehydrator sheets.  They are reusable and make clean-up a breeze.  We use them for everything but they are especially helpful when you are using spices like for jerky or if you are dehydrating anything with lots of seeds or that tends to be messy like tomatoes.  All in all, very helpful!

We hope this information helps if you are considering buying a dehydrator.  We would never go back to the days prior.  We will always have a dehydrate from this point on and it will probably running none stop!
