Excalibur 3948CDB 9-Tray, Black

The Excalibur® 3948CDB 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 the 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. 

Included are 9 large drying trays, each 15" x 15", for a total of 15 square feet of drying area! Also included are 9 stick-resistant BPA-free mesh sheets, plus a download link for the 192 page “Preserve It Naturally” recipe book, plus a copy of the 32 page Excalibur Dehydrator drying guide. A large 7" diameter fan provides strong airflow, alongside a 600 watt heater. Temperature is adjustable between 95° and 165° F. The Excalibur dehydrator measures 14"H x 17"W x 19"D. Food contact parts of the Excalibur dehydrator are BPA-free and dishwasher safe. The 3948CDB 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!

  • “Let me express appreciation for the way in which you do business. The young lady who took my order was courteous, pleasant and has excellent product knowledge. She loves her job and loves people, a rare combination in our world today.”

    – Jerry Christopher, TX

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.

Timer included

The timer can be set to operate your Excalibur dehydrator for up to 48 hours and will turn 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.
