The Excalibur® 3500 Dehydrator is a premium USA-built dehydrator with a solid track record. It features exceptionally solid case and tray construction, and includes polyethylene mesh screens for all trays. Its patented Excalibur Parallexx™ airflow system circulates air from back to front of dehydrator so each tray receives its own supply of fresh, dry air. This exclusive Excalibur dehydrator design prevents flavor-sharing and produces even drying without time consuming tray rotation. The Excalibur food dehydrator has a convenient removable front cover that allows you to remove any tray without disturbing other trays. Trays are fully removable for full access.
Comes with 5 large drying trays, each 15.1" x 15.1" (1.25 sq. ft.), for a total of 5.9 square feet of drying area (6.3 square feet if you use the tray edges)! Also included are 5 stick-resistant, BPA-free poly mesh sheets. Big 5" diameter fan for strong airflow, with 440 watt heater. Temperature is adjustable between 105° and 165° F. The Excalibur dehydrator measures 8.5"H x 17"W x 19"D. Food contact parts of the Excalibur dehydrator are BPA-free, and dishwasher safe. The Excalibur 3500 dehydrator features a full cabinet and can be operated with any number of trays—or no trays at all. This gives you the option of using it as a low-temperature oven and for unconventional purposes like drying damp boots or mittens!
“Well, I just want to say you guys are terrific! Your prices are great, the products are top of the line, but most importantly to me, the service is perfect. Thanks a bunch!”

Durable construction: Polycarbonate dehydrator cabinet and trays, and food grade polypropylene mesh sheets, are very strong and easy to clean. Opaque exterior of the Excalibur food dehydrator blocks light to preserve nutrition of drying food.
Included with the 3500: 5 large drying trays, plus the 192 page Preserve It Naturally (a $24.95 value FREE), plus the 32 page Excalibur Dehydrator drying guide, plus 5 nonstick mesh screens.
My original Excalibur dehydrator is still a workhorse that sees heavy use after 38 years! We have also had the pleasure of giving them to each of our daughters as they established their own homes and families. The most recent purchase was from Pleasant Hill Grain, and my order was placed less than a week before Christmas. Pricing, clear communications in ordering and lightning-fast delivery were excellent even at the busiest time of year.

Performs beyond expectations

This is an excellent product and well worth the cost. It's well made and looks like it should last for years of home service. I made my first batch of US Farm Raised catfish jerky with fantastic results. Only drawback is it's noisy. But I can't compare this attribute to other models. Glade I could buy a USA made machine too.
