The Excalibur® D500 Dehydrator 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 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 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 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 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!
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 polycarbonate dehydrator cabinet and trays, full grip handles, and food grade polypropylene mesh sheets, 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, plus 5 nonstick mesh screens.
Available in Twilight Black, Copper, Antique Copper, Radiant Blueberry, Radiant Cherry and Radiant Raspberry.
"I have never before received such prompt service when ordering any item from a company. I placed my order late in the afternoon and had exactly what I ordered in my mailbox less than 48 hours later. It was a pleasure doing business with you." — Sue Belair, WI
