One of the highest-quality appliances on the market, the Stainless Steel Dehydrator is especially reputed for its efficiency and ease of use. Indeed, with professional-quality features, this particular machine is designed to help you whip up large batches of your favorite treats and snack upon them whenever you want. More importantly, this appliance will help you cut back on the costs associated with store-bought dried fruits and vegetables, which makes the machine an investment in the long run. Best of all, this particular model is enhanced by an insulated polycarbonate interior, guaranteeing high-quality produce with every single batch. In fact, the dehydrator is so exceptionally professional that it has been known to last for life with the proper care and maintenance. The Excalibur Dehydrator is entirely made from non-durable Stainless Steel enhanced by durable Steel Panels.
The Excalibur Stainless Steel is so efficient that it hardly received any negative feedback. Quite on the contrary, most users praised its features and found the machine extremely easy to operate. However, it should be noted that the appliance is on the bigger side, so it will take a lot of counter space. Because of this, users that live in small apartments might be better off with a smaller appliance such as the Waring Pro.
With this appliance, users will be able to enjoy the various advantages of food dehydration. For example, food dehydration has been shown to radically enhance your consumption of fruits and vegetables since you’ll be able to whip up your favorite treats in no time at all. In fact, this can even be an advantage to anyone who’s on a diet since they can easily substitute sugary and fattening snacks for figure-friendly treats like kale and banana chips or even fruit leather with sugar substitute. By this token, drying your own produce at home will also help you avoid the chemicals, toxins and excessive salts that are so often added to commercially-manufactured dried food. If you have pets, you can even use this appliance to make delicious, organic and- more importantly- toxin free treats for your furry friends.
Heat Distribution: 5/5
Because of its insulated interior, this particular machine heats up more quickly than other appliances which drastically shortens the dehydrating time. It is also equipped with the Parallexxa Drying System to ensure horizontal air distribution. Therefore, all your food will dry at the exact same time, eliminating the need to rotate the trays. Because of the insulated interior, this machine also conserves quite a great deal of heat.
Thanks to its up to 9 trays, the Excalibur Stainless Steel boasts of one of the biggest drying capacities on the market. Indeed, with an area of 15 x 15” per tray, you will be able to dehydrate all your producte on the same batch. Therefore, you can easily prepare large batches of snacks and finger food for parties or other similar gatherings. Best of all, because of its shelves-design, you’ll have easy access to all of the trays at any time.
Other Features: 5/5
The 9-Tray Stainless Steel comes with a 26-hour timer, enabling users to leave it on while they’re at work or even at night while they sleep. The timer also prevents your food from becoming too dry. Its thermostat can be adjusted between 105 to 165 degrees F. Thanks to its wide heat range, you’ll be able to keep the temperature high enough to safely dry meat and low enough to protect the enzymes and vitamins in your food.
The Parallexxa Drying System prevents the flavors from mixing. For example, it’s often difficult to use lower-quality machines to dry contrasting flavors like fish, meat, herbs and spices because the aromas tend to mingle. However, this is far from being the case with the Excalibur Dehydrator and you can quite easily dehydrate delicate and more pungent flavors at the same time.
Overall Rating: 5/5
All in all, considering its convenience features and high durability, the Excalibur 9-Tray Stainless Steel Dehydrator is certainly a good investment. This is one of the rare appliances that can easily dehydrate up to 18 kgs of produce in the same batch. However, for those looking for a high capacity but for a more affordable price, models such as the Excalibur 3900B and 2900ECB, and also the Nesco FD-1018P. Easy to clean and entirely dishwasher safe, this machine also comes with a complete Guide to Dehydration. This appliance has a wattage of 600 watts. It comes with a heavy duty 7” fan destined to easily accommodate extra-large batches.
