Excalibur Dehydrator Giveaway

With spring right around the corner and so many are planning, or have already planted their gardens, we thought an Excalibur Dehydrator would be just the right item for our giveaway. Several of us have shown on our websites how to use a dehydrator, and we have listened to the comments that some of you would really like a dehydrator. Please let us know what food you would really like to learn how to dehydrate. Please enter today, and good luck to all of you! What better way to be prepared for the unexpected than by learning to dehydrate food we grow in our gardens.

 

 Excalibur-3900-Dehydrator-a  Excalibur 3900 9 TrayThe 3900B Deluxe Dehydrator by Excalibur comes with 9 trays and a total of 15 square feet of drying space. The adjustable thermostat temperature control ranges from 95 to 155 degrees Fahrenheit, making it safe to dehydrate meat for jerky. The fan, heating element and thermostat are in the back of the unit, so cool air is drawn in, heated and then distributed evenly over each tray. This patented Parallex Horizontal Airflow is exclusive to Excalibur and helps the food dehydrate faster, retain more nutrients, and look and taste better – all without manual tray rotation. Since 1973, Excalibur has been made in Sacramento, California. Over the years, Excalibur has taken the lead in advancements related to the mechanics of dehydration including air flow, heating dynamics, and materials.

Any dehydrator will dry food. An Excalibur dries safer, better, and faster, thanks to Excalibur’s patented Hyperwave Fluctuation technology. Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat, which can cause”case hardening.” Ordinary dehydrators create a dry surface with moisture trapped inside – the perfect environment for yeast, mold and bacteria growth. With the Excalibur Hyperwave Fluctuation technology, the temperature fluctuates up and down to prevent this from happening. When the air temperature fluctuates up, the food’s surface moisture evaporates; then, when the air temperature fluctuates down, the the inner moisture moves to the drier surface. This keeps the food temperature low enough to keep the enzymes active, but the air temperature gets high enough to dry food and overcome yeast, mold, and spoilage.

  1. Now how am I going to get my regular job done with all these new Pinterest pages to peruse? LOL! Oh well, next week I’ll get some regular work done – after all, IT’S FRIDAY!

  2. Hi there! I found you via on Emily Earl on Pinterest. Glad to see there are others out there taking care of their selves. I wish I’d been around more when my dad made his jerky in the old dehydrator. He passed away this past April of cancer. I’d like to figure out how to make good jerky like he did so my family could re-live some of those memories with him. With his passing, my family and I have taken a harder look at what we eat and are trying to eat healthier. I’d love to figure out out to dehydrate berries with out them being mushy sticky or hollow inside. I’d also like to be able to replace the old dehydrator dad bought for mom that I literally burned up this last fall. Sadly the dehydrator, the cranberries I was drying didn’t make it; neither did mom’s window sill.. I hadn’t planned on smoked anything, but the house sure did fill up with the thick black stuff fast. Chalk that up to a learning experience and add fire readiness and clean up to the things I can check off my things to learn list. I’ve had an Excalibur dehydrator on my wish list of things to get one day. My uncle had one that I remember him dehydrating fruit on in the summer and jerky on in the fall. Ah memories.

  3. We are most interested in using the dehydrator for jerky. We currently do it slowly in the oven but would like to try a dehydrator and see which way we like best. Would also like to do fruits and anything else that would add to our sustainability.

  4. I would love to dehydrate jerky in this dehydrator.

  5. Bananas would be on my list!
