Over 20 years excellence!
The first name in food dehydration presents the 2000 Series, featuring the
exclusive turbo charged Parallexx Drying System.
The Parallexx design, with a temperature controlled, fan forced, horizontal drying system
mounted in the rear is exclusive to the 2000 Series. The same features found in
Excalibur's USDA approved $5000.00 commercial model...in an affordable home unit.
With 20 years of manufacturing excellence, the Excalibur Food Dehydrator sets the industry
standard for design, quality, and dependability.
the Excalibur Dehydrator
Excalibur Offers the Turbo Charged Parallexx Drying System. Millions have
rediscovered the benefits of food dehydration. Healthy, nutritious, and tasty food at a
huge savings. Now Excalibur makes drying easy. For centuries food has been dried in the
sun or open air - a lengthy, messy and difficult process inviting contamination and
spoilage. With the introduction of electric dehydrators the drying process was improved.
But most manufacturers offered round stackable models with a heating unit in the bottom.
Excalibur pioneered a rear-mounted equipment package allowing horizontal or parallel air
flow...The Parallexx System.
The Excalibur Food Dehydrator
Fast, Easy, Economical and Efficient
Adjustable Thermostat 85-145 degrees F
Removable door and trays - do not have to be taken apart to
check drying or add more food.
Almost unbreakable and FDA approved polycarbonate trays.
Inserts make cleaning a snap.
Polycarbonate plastic cabinet and plexiglass door.
Controlled environment for a wide variety of uses, i.e. making
fruit roll-ups, trail mixes and drying flower arrangements, herbs, art and crafts, photos.
Each excalibur dehydrator includes a FREE Dehydration
guide, a $6.95 value!
Taylor Digital Thermometer/Timer allows you to measure the temperature of your food in the
dehydrator without opening the door of the appliance. Furthermore, it will allow
you to set an "alarm" should the temperature rise above a certain point you
set. The timer feature allows you to set the unit to count down from 23 hours and 59
minutes so that you will know when your dehydration job is done. Click here for further information on the Taylor Professional
Thermometer and Timer. The Taylor Professional Thermometer/Timer is only $19.99
when purchased with a dehydrator.
non-stick sheets are solid sheets, unlike the mesh sheets that are included with the
dehydrator. They are washable and re-useable. Trim to fit the Excalibur
4 tray dehydrator.
They are used for dehydrating liquids (such as blended
fruits- to make fruit roll-ups) or really sticky/gooey items that would
normally drip through the mesh sheets that are included with the dehydrator.
They are also required for making THIN sprouted essene breads and crackers. Order Premiflexx sheets separately here.
The fan, heating element, and adjustable thermostat are mounted
in the rear. Cool air is drawn in the back, heated up, 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.
Excalibur Parallexx System Advantages:
Complete drying system in rear. (includes thermostat and fan)
Easy to clean... Spills fall on seamless bottom.
Horizontal drying provides even drying, eliminating tray
rotations. Fast drying...
Adjustable thermostat allows perfect drying every time.
Square design increases drying area "25%" with no
holes in center of tray.
Versatile... Trays can be removed to expand drying chamber.
Normal drips fall on the electrical controls beneath the food.
This can cause electrical problems as well as being very difficult to clean.
The more trays that are added, the further the food is away from the heat, dramatically
increasing the drying time, and requiring frequent tray rotation day and night to prevent
spoilage. Who wants to "BABYSIT" THEIR DEHYDRATOR?!!
Standard Dehydrator Disadvantages:
Round Stackable Units Heating unit in bottom. (many without
fan or thermostat)
Hard to clean... Spills fall directly on electric components.
Vertical drying requires tray rotation as trays closest to
heat source dry first.
Slow drying...Units without fan or thermostat may spoil food
or not dry at all.
Round design cuts off corners and has holes in center,
reducing usable drying area.
Non-adjustable stackable design restricts size of drying
Any dehydrator will dry food.
Excalibur dries BETTER, FASTER & SAFER thanks to HYPERWAVE
Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat causing case
hardening, a dry surface with moisture trapped inside - a perfect environment for
bacteria growth. Excaliburs 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 bacteria growth and spoilage. Perfect for raw and
