The unit will automatically adjusts after the 1st setting and turns off when the 2nd setting is complete.

The Excalibur Dehydrator removes water from food by a continuous circulation of thermostatically-controlled warm air. A variety of foods, from bright golden kernels of farm-fresh corn to rings of island-sweetened pineapple can be dehydrated. Slices of beef, chicken, fish or even venison can be easily dried into homemade jerky. A fruit puree dries into a vividly coloured, taffy-like snack or fruit roll. Make soup mixes, herb and spice mixes, yogurt, arts & crafts … even all-natural pet treats. Operating cost for your Excalibur® Dehydrator is approximately 3 - 6 cents per hour. Using your dehydrator compared to traditional canning or freezing methods will prove to be well worth your initial low-cost investment.

First of all, the motor is placed on the side, which prevents leaking from more juicy items like in dehydrators with motors mounted in the bottom. This makes for a clever protection against the motor short-circuit and dried spills on which fruit flies thrive.
Another advantage lies in the use of drying trays. Like oven trays, they can be easily removed, making space for more bulky items, which is impossible with round stacking dehydrators. Unlike competing dehydrators, the trays are compact, square, with no hole in the middle, which makes it possible to easily dry mixed fruit and vegetable cakes.
We also appreciate simple manipulation with the doors, which can be easily removed and put back again.
This model also has a digital display.
Excalibur 4548 Dehydrator

Convenience with the press of a button
The digital controller featuring a 48hr timer lets you take advantage of Excalibur’s two time/two temperature setting. Set two different cycles at once and don’t worry about it anymore. The Excalibur dehydrator will automatically change the temperature at the specific time and then turn itself off after the drying cycle has been completed. You do not have to work your schedule around your dehydrator anymore, it will work around you.
Excalibur is your choice for precise, faster and safer drying
Many dehydrators can only produce one constant temperature, which leads to a dry surface with moisture still trapped inside – an environment for bacteria and mould growth. Excalibur’s Hyperwave™ patented technology is known for its faster and safer drying process, while keeping enzymes active and overcoming spoilage for your peace of mind. The specifically designed adjustable thermostat lets you create a proper fluctuation in the air temperature to draw moisture from the centre of the food to the dryer outer surface, where it quickly evaporates. During this process the food temperature stays low enough to retain nutrients and enzymes, while the air temperature is high enough to dry your food fast and efficiently, giving bacteria and mould no chance to grow.
Parallexx® Horizontal Airflow
Fast and even results every time
Rely on Excalibur’s horizontal airflow design for fast and even results with no effort every time. Cool air is drawn in at the back of the unit, heated, and distributed evenly over each tray by the rear mounted fan. The air circulation within the machine ensures all trays are dried evenly and fast, preventing spoilage at the same time. Your food retains more nutrients and active enzymes, tastes and looks better without tray rotation.
