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.
Excalibur Dehydrators are the front-runners in the world of drying. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, yogurt and even flowers – Excalibur has the best devices to lead the way in premium juicing. The 4948CDB is an all-new unit from Excalibur’s 9-Tray Dehydrators. The US version is 3948CDB. The units come with a 48-hour digital controller and clear doors so you can see the drying process inside without opening them.
The 48-hour digital timer enables you to run 2 temperatures in 2 different times. This means that you can set the timer at high for a specific period of time and set it low for the remaining drying time. The machine will adjust to the temperatures and will itself turn off if all the settings have been run. Basically, the 4948CDB’s digital timer lets you choose a setting and forget about the rest.
The machine turns on when the adjustable thermostat is in use. This thermostat furnishes heat between 35C and 74C (95F to 165F). The thermostat is adjustable, giving you the advantage of changing heat called Hyperwave Fluctuation. Temperatures can easily go high or low with your control. With average dehydrators, the heat is sustained causing a crust build-up on the food while there is still moisture left inside the food. This causes bacteria and mold to grow making the food unsafe for consumption. With Excalibur dehydrators’ Hyperwave technology, temperatures can go high enough to kill pathogenic microorganisms and low enough to preserve the nutrient contents of food.
The 4948CDB is also patented with Excalibur’s Parallex Horizontal Air Flow that is located at the back of the unit. This technology effectively dries food uniformly by pushing warm air to the front, from the back. Rotating the trays has now become a thing of the past.
The 9-Tray 4948CDB dehydrator is designed for bigger families, gardeners and DIY people, especially for people who require a lot from their dehydrators. The unit has 9 large trays measuring 15″x15″ each that are BPA-free. These can handle a whopping 18kg of ingredients. Owning the 4948CDB will call for spending more than the average dehydrator, but the unit will pay and speak for itself. Preserve meat the right way in just 4 hours. Eliminate additives in your food. Provide healthier choices. Deepen flavours of food and create wonderful crafts.
Like other Excalibur dehydrators, the 9-Tray 4948CDB has removable, dishwasher-safe trays so you can make the most of the space should you choose to dry larger items. The unit is safe – electronics are ascended at the back and it does not emit harmful fumes. The parts are removable and durable, being made of medical-grade recycled plastic. It is also economical and environment-friendly operating only at 6c-7c electricity per hour.
