Parallexx Horizontal-Airflow Drying System
My Excalibur is a very good food dehydrator. The option of a 26 hour timer should give you enough time to take care of big batches. Shelves make tray removal easier. It provides an adjustable heat setting that ranges from 85º-145º F. A heavy duty fan circulates enough air to get the job done quickly. The available one year warranty gives you peace of mind that other companies might or might not offer. But what impresses me is the available 10 year warranty. Usually if something is going to break it's going to break sooner rather than later. Still it's nice to have the option to extend your warranty by 10 times for only $30. Add that to that the fact that there are still 30-year-old units in use, and it makes a statement. The Excalibur food dehydrator dries quickly, efficiently and conveniently. Built to take years of heavy use. Well thought out design from a company that uses customer input to make their product better. Depending on the food, you might want to rotate each tray 180 degrees about halfway through the cycle. Polycarbonate trays. There are many other food dehydrators available but not one that I've found comes close to comparing with the Excalibur. Although it's more expensive up front, it will outlast cheapies that die after their first year or three with their melted shelves. Not only will it save you money in replacement costs, the short efficient drying cycles are sometimes 10 times shorter than the competition.
