Excalibur Electronics - 2400 4 Tray Starter Series Food Dehydrator - Black

They may call the Excalibur 2400 4 Tray Starter Series Food Dehydrator a starter unit, but it dehydrates as well as the bigger models and it's made of the same sturdy construction. Make everything from fruit leathers and jerky to dried flowers. This no-frills model is more compact and easier to use. Polycarbonate construction on the 2000 series is almost indestructible, and the four square trays are dishwasher-safe. A plexiglass door lets you check food drying at a glance. Each tray is independently removable, so you can check dryness without disturbing the other trays. The adjustable thermostat goes from 85-145F degrees, a range appropriate from fruit to jerky. Horizontal airflow is more even and doesn't mix food aromas, so you can dry meats and fruits in the same batch. Dimensions: 13W x 16.25D x 6.5H inches. A handy 28-page dehydrating guide with recipes is included, so you'll get off to a great start. The Excalibur has a 5-year warranty.

      Great small-scale dehydrator

      This 4-tray unit (as opposed to the usual 9) is very compact and fits great where I need it t be. Who needs a big one unless you plan on selling the stuff...it can run for days (if you need it to). The instruction booklet is quite adequate to dehydrate virtually anything you can imagine . It's a great way to provide healthy snacks for a hiking or camping trip, for school or work, or even to store for "emergency" rations (like one of our hurricanes, for example). It's much healthier than canning because you don't cook the food to death. The only negative thing about it is that the switch (along with the thermostat dial) is a bit awkwardly placed at the back (top) of the unit, so I have to pull it out a bit if I want to change the dial. Overall I am very satisfied with this product.

      I did my research before purchasing this unit, I looked all over, and most signs pointed towards Excalibur Dehydrators. After the unit arrived, I dived head first into the world of dehydrating. Everything from beef jerky (amazing), to drying herbs from the garden (far superior to store bought herbs) turned out great. The system is easy to maintain, has a small footprint, and is easy to use. 5/5 stars, would buy again.

      This dehydrator is basic in functionality but of very high quality. We are using it for Precious Metal Clay (PMC) jewelry. One key item to note - a common theme amongst internet reviews for this item is that the biggest disadvantage is the lack of an on/off switch. This has been corrected and this unit does have an on/off switch.

      We bought this dehydrator to make yogurt, dry nuts and fruits. It works great. The trays have different layers that can be put on for holding various types if food. All trays can be removed to allow jars to be places in it, which we use to make yogurt. It has an adjustable heat setting to accommodate different recipes.

      I purchased this in hopes of making fruit "chips" for my son...but the fruit does not get crispy - more of a leathery texture. Everything tastes great and the machine is very quiet...just wish I could make "chips." It's also upsetting that Best Buy doesn't offer Geek Squad protection for this item.

      Purchased this product to stop the waste of food. Once it arrived I have dehydrating everything. Doesn't take up much room on the counter. The dehydrated fruit is wonderful a much healthier snack. If you don't plan on doing a lot of food storage, this is a great buy!

      Perfect size for me. Probably too small for someone who dries a lot at once. Very quite, I have been running it almost constantly since it was delivered. Does exactly what its supposed to.

      After using a round dehydrator I coveted a Excalibur. I now understand why it is recommended so highly. Very durable, easy to use and clean up. Works perfectly with parchment paper. This will make eating more living aka raw foods easier. A++
