The Excalibur Dehydrator goes digital! Ever popular with raw fooders and growers, this model of Excalibur Dehydrator has had a face lift that makes it even more versatile. A drying technique used by many raw food enthusiasts involves starting the dehydrating process at a higher temperature to prevent spoilage, followed by a nutrient friendly lower drying temperature for the rest of the dry. This process can now be automated with the digital controller of the Excalibur 4948 which allows you to set two time periods with different drying temperatures.
Excalibur Dehydrators use the patented Parallex™ drying system that ensures even drying throughout the box. The 9 tray versions offer a total drying area that allows large batch dehydrating for raw fooders, families, growers and gardeners. Starting at an enzyme friendly temperature of 35ºC, you can set temperatures right up to 74ºC for meat or fish, which makes it suitable for making jerky or pet treats as well as genuinely raw foods. For living food enthusiasts, the new 'two time - two temperature' digital controller allows a higher initial temperature for the first part of drying. This ensures food safety without compromising nutrients, then a second timer stage can be set at a lower temperature to protect the nutrients once the initial moisture is dried away.
Like all Excalibur Dehydrators, the digital controller version is easy to clean and comes with flexible BPA free mesh tray liners that allow good air circulation on the bottom surfaces of the food. Included in the box is the latest edition of Excaliburs drying guide and recipe book, 'Preserve It Naturally'.
