The Excalibur® D500 Dehydrator is a premium USA-built dehydrator. It features exceptionally solid stainless steel case and tray construction. 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 with sleek, full-grip handles, 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 14.1" x 14.1" (1.36 sq. ft.), for a total of 6.8 square feet of drying area! (almost 8 square feet if you use the tray edges.) 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 dishwasher safe.
Low-temp oven option: The Excalibur 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!
“BEST customer service I have ever witnessed. Darrin could not have been any more helpful. He emailed me tips, comments from other customers on the product I purchased and followup emails with anything else I might need. This company is awesome!”
– William E., SC
Timer included: Excalibur's D500 series dehydrators include a timer. The timer can be set to operate your Excalibur dehydrator from one hour up to twenty six hours and will turn it off at the end of the time period that you've selected. This makes it easy to incorporate dehydrating activities around your schedule. Your Excalibur will turn itself off while you're sleeping or when you are away. The timer makes dehydrating as convenient as using a slow cooker for unattended meal preparation.
Durable construction: The stainless steel dehydrator cabinet and trays and full grip handles are very strong and easy to clean. The opaque exterior of the Excalibur D500 food dehydrator blocks light to preserve the nutrients in your drying food.
Included: 5 large drying trays, plus the 192 page Preserve It Naturally (a $24.95 value FREE), plus the 32 page Excalibur Dehydrator drying guide.
Stainless steel: The cabinet on the D500SHD is stainless steel outside and plastic inside, the trays and door are stainless steel.
This is my first dehydrator in my life, so I honestly cannot compare with others. But I love this item so far. Easy to use and clean up. I also like everything is made of stainless steel. Minor downsides are 1) the holes of this stainless steel rack are large unlike meshed one, which shrunken small food can be dropped and 2) the sound is loud.
But these factors are minor to me. I am pretty happy with this item. Also shipping was quick.

I love the Excalibur Dehydrator. Compared to the round dehydrator I had where the fan blows from the bottom, the Excalibur is more efficient and actually dries my fruit to the consistency I want it.
