Who Is This For?
✓ Health-conscious families
Excalibur dehydrators help you say “No!” to junk food – you can make nutritious treats that are yummy too! When you make your own dried foods it eliminates your intake of preservatives, additives, excess salt and other fillers.
✓ If you’re interested in dehydrating and would love to have more colour in your kitchen with your unit
This model is available in:
D502SHD 5 Tray Stainless
The long lasting beauty and modern appearance of this Excalibur dehydrator lends a touch of Colour to your kitchen. This Excalibur dehydrator model is the perfect combination of industry leading air-flow mechanics and materials.
✓ If you’re looking for a fully automated solution
The in-built timer is great if you need to leave the dehydrator unattended and you want to ensure that it switches off after a certain drying period. The 26 hour timer lets you set and forget. Unit turns on automatically when timer is in use. Unit turns off when the set time is complete.
✓ If you want to have more control over dehydrated foods – keep out unwanted ingredients
Manufacturers of dried products douser their foods with preservatives, artificial colours, and flavours. For example, flavoured rice and noodle products from the grocery store often full of MSG, excessive salt, and partially hydrogenated oils. When you make your own you don’t need to worry about all these unwanted ingredients.
✓ Ideal for families, gardeners, crafts people, volume pet treats and in-home dehydrating businesses
It can dry up to 18kgs of food at one time! With a built-in thermostat, 18cm fan and 600 watt motor, this Excalibur dehydrator is for those who are serious about dehydrating their foods.
Freeze-dried backpacking meals are always light on veggies and heavy on starches. Travelling and camping requires starches for energy, but you need vegies too. Diced vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, and onions and put them directly into the food dehydrator.
Vegetables such as broccoli and green beans benefit from a few minutes of steaming before dehydrating. With a small amount of home preparation you can include healthy portions of colourful, nutrient-filled vegetables in all of your backpacking meals.
How it works:
✓ Easy to dry foods
A wide variety of fresh foods can be dried quickly and easily with the Excalibur D902: fruits, vegetables, fish and meats. For example, dried fish and meats can be made in just 4-8 hours.
✓ A variety of foods
You can also use your dehydrator to activate nuts and seeds (after soaking them to get the moisture out), make yoghurt, or even dry meats to make your own delicious jerky or biltong.
You can make these living foods such as:
Sprouted seed crackers
Fruit roll-ups (Teflex sheet recommended)
Help raise bread
✓ Horizontal airflow design
Help prevent flavour mixing and allows even drying on all trays - no tray rotation required.
✓ The Parallexx Advantage
The fan, heating element and adjustable thermostat are mounted in the rear. Cool air is drawn in the back, heated, and distributed evenly across each tray. During the dehydration process, warm air removes moisture from foods and is pushed out the front of the machine. It’s the only home dehydrator that has Parallexx Horizontal-Airflow Drying System. The fan and the adjustable thermostat create excellent airflow, each tray receiving its own “jet stream” of forced air. Most other dehydrators radiate heat; they don’t direct it.
✓ Fold-down/removable door
Saves counter space and makes cleaning easy
✓ Adjustable thermostat
Ranging from 41ºC to 74ºC preserving active enzymes in fruits and vegetables. Temperature range is also high enough to meet safety standards for dehydrating meat for jerky. Excalibur’s Adjustable Thermostat lets you take advantage of Hyperwave™ Fluctuation (changing heat through the drying cycle) for faster, better, safer dried foods. As the temperature fluctuates up, the surface moisture evaporates. Then, as the temperature fluctuates down the inner moisture moves to the drier surface. The food temperature stays LOW enough to keep the enzymes active, and the air temperature gets high enough to dry food fast, overcoming yeast, mould, and bacteria growth and spoilage.
✓ Convenient and Sturdy
The Excalibur's trays and optional Teflex sheets are dishwasher-safe - the exterior is easy to clean.
✓ Storage friendly
Your dried foods will take up less space than canned or frozen foods because when you remove the moisture, food shrinks in size. They store in any convenient airtight container or pack and are lightweight - just right for lunchboxes, backpacks or camping trips.
✓ Versatile customisable drying space
9 large removable polycarbonate trays and screens. Mesh screens are BPA free and their dimensions are 35cm x 35cm each. Mesh Sheets (Polyscreen Inserts) are supplied with the machine - solid sheets are available separately.
✓ E-Z Clean Exterior
It’s built to last, easy to maintain and keep its attractive exterior for years to come.
✓ Environmentally Friendly
Like the black and white models they’re made from US FDA-approved food contact polycarbonate and BPA-free polypropylene #5 so no harmful fumes are produced while in use.
