Why purchase a food dehydrator?
If you’re not familiar with food drying, the idea is remarkably simple: by heating foods at a very low temperature that never exceeds 74ºC, their nutrients and enzymes are preserved. An Excalibur can dry all sorts of fruit, vegetables, make snacks and other wholesome meals – all models in the range have fully removable trays, making them very versatile and configurable for a large number of recipes: soups, dried fruit and nuts, fruit roll-ups, stews, yoghurt, meat jerky, sprouted seed crackers, you can even raise bread!
Here is feedback Sue, a happy Echolife customer, has shared about her Excalibur:
“Not long received my new Excalibur dehydrator, and have already dried apples, pears and bananas and made fruit rollups. The only trouble is that the dried fruit disappears so fast that I nearly have to run the machine 24/7 to keep up. A great way to get the family to eat the daily recommended serves of fruit.”
The new 5 and 9 tray models are equipped with a 48 hour digital timer and offer higher control and precision over the drying process. 2 time and 2 temperature controls enable you to set a higher temperature at the beginning, and drop it for the remainder of the dehydrating time, speeding up the process. The dehydrator will turn off automatically at the end of the second time period.
Both models also come with a free copy of Preserve It Naturally, a 192 page recipe book that will help you make the most of your dehydrator.
