Made in the USA the Excalibur Dehydrator range is considered as one of the top electrical appliance brands in the dehydrating world. With no trouble the Excalibur is able to dehydrate fruit, vegetables, meats, flowers, nuts, yoghurts, herbs and many other items you place inside. Excalibur dehydrators are made with a design that comes from years of dehydrating experience. Engineered for the Australian power supply when your item arrives it is pretty much ready to start your dehydrating requirements.
Excalibur Dehydrators were first manufactured back in 1973 in Sacramento, California and have since created such brand awareness due to the unrivalled quality, that they are now seen as market leaders in the Food Dehydrator category.
In the world of drying, the Excalibur Dehydrators are unparalleled. Anything that you need to be dried – fruits, vegetables, nuts, meats and even flowers – is just a walk in the park for the Excalibur Dehydrators. Choose from the brand that has proven itself superior, time and time again.
The D502SHD is the much anticipated stainless steel version of the popular 5-tray Excalibur dehydrators. It is something you will be more than contented to use in the kitchen with its hygienic design, strong parts, and space-efficient build. The D502SHD 5-Tray Stainless Steel model is the same as the 5-tray models except it has a stainless steel outer casing and trays. The interior casing, however, is the same polycarbonate in 4500/4526T models.
Ordinary dehydrators make use of a constant and stationary heat that creates a hard crust on the surface of the food. This happens when the moisture on the surface of the food dries up quickly while moisture inside is still trapped. This will cause bacteria or molds to grow, causing spoilage. With Excalibur dehydrators, a horizontal air-flow system called Parallex is used. It is situated at the back of the machine and propels warm air out to the front horizontally. This assures even and uniform drying throughout the trays. You can also control the Hyperwave Fluctuation through the adjustable thermostat. When temperature fluctuates up, the moisture on the surface of the food evaporates. When it fluctuates down, the moisture inside the food moves up the surface for it to dry. With the Hyperwave Fluctuation technology, the heat can go high enough to overpower yeast, bacteria or mold growth, and low enough to keep the nutrients and enzymes intact.
Conventional cooking can cause alteration in nutrient contents of food. Easily and quickly preserve fruit, vegetables, and herbs with the Excalibur 5-Tray Stainless Steel Food Dehydrator D502SHD. Make delicious, nutritious and preservative-free snacks. Create home-made jerky, granola or herbs, and spices. Dry herbs and flowers to make your own tea brews. This dehydrator is also perfect for crafts as it preserves the color of flowers.
Removable large trays allow for bigger drying surface and customised drying methods of small or big items. Electronic lines are ascended up making it safe. The 26-Hour Timer will let you set and forget.The trays are removable, durable and easy to load. The unit is economical and environment-friendly operating only at 6c-7c electricity per hour.
Excalibur dehydrators have had nothing but high praises. The beautifully designed 5-Tray Stainless Steel Food Dehydrator D502SHD is a powerful machine that will stand the test of time. Sure you will reach deeper down your pocket compared to average dehydrators. But the unit will be a great investment for you and your family.
The D502SHD is equivalent to the US D500SHD. The difference though is in the plug. The D502SHD is represented by a number “2” which means that the machine has an Aussie plug suitable for a 220/240V power.
