The Excalibur D902CDSHD 9 Tray Food Dehydrator with Timer

The Excalibur D902CDSHD 9 Tray Food Dehydrator is our best selling Food Dehydrator perfect for those who are looking to dehydrate larger batches and quality in their product is of utmost importance. When you are considering value for money the Excalibur brand should always be considered, made in the USA this machine offers an on board simple analogue timer, adjustable thermostat, large removable BPA free trays, a total of 15 square feet of drying space and importantly a long 2 year domestic warranty.

 

When Size Matters

Before you buy a food dehydrator you need to consider 2 things, firstly where will it sit in your home and secondly how much produce will I be dehydrating?

This dehydrator is 17” wide by 19” deep by 12.5” high. The D902CDSHD offers an amazing 15 square foot of dehydrating space. It is perfect for those with fruit trees nearby or for those that find they are throwing out raw food each week. This dehydrator allows for lots of Mangos, Apples, beef jerky or whatever other dehydrated foods you enjoy.

 

How does this machine work?

Excalibur patented their Parallex Horizontal Air Flow. It’s something that sets Excalibur apart from the other brands. The air is drawn in via the fan that is situated at the back of the machine. It flows through a heating element and is evenly distributed across all the trays inside the unit. The combination of heat and airflow causes the foods to dry.

Once you have laid out all of your food on the drying trays, you slide them into the machine and simply hang the door back on the front.

How does the Timer work?

Simply turn the dial to the number of hours you wish for the unit to work for and when the time is up the machine automatically switches off.

You have up to 26 hours.

What is the Temperature range?

The Excalibur D902CDSHD 9 Tray Food Dehydrator has a temperature range of 41°C-74°C. This is a decent range and will allow you to dehydrate a large amount of foods.

One thing to consider is destruction of enzymes in your food which can happen when they are exposed to too high temperatures. The lowest settings on the D902CDSHD will ensure that the enzymes are preserved whilst your are drying.

Also however you need the temperatures to be high enough to kill bacteria when you are drying meats. So thankfully this machine’s temperature range is high enough to do so.

What does the Temperature on the dial mean?

One of the great bits of patented technology featured in the Excalibur D902CDSHD is called Hyperwave which is focused on the preserving of enzymes when heating. The heating settings are actually designed to manage the temperature that you wish the food itself to be maintained at, rather than the air circulating inside. This is because the moisture inside the food is being evaporated, its the moisture that keeps food cooler.

This allows you to control either the prevention of destroying enzymes or inhibiting the growth of bacteria and mould.

Are the machines made in the USA?

Yes in Sacramento California.

Are these machines easy to clean?

Yes, the trays are dishwasher safe but the mesh screens are done by hand with soapy water.

What does BPA Free mean?

The machine is BPA free throughout, the trays are made from stainless steel. This means that there will be no harmful fumes let out during the drying process. Not all brands are made from these food safe materials so be sure to ask for a certificate.

Is it a loud Machine?

Not too loud, perhaps on a par with a Microwave or small portable fan. Some people choose to put these in their garage due to the size. If you don’t like the noise it makes then this is also an option.

What comes in the Box?

The dehydrator, 9 drying trays, 9 x Mesh Sheets and a guide to dehydration book which has some recipe ideas and explanations.

Are there any books available?

You get the awesome Preserve it Naturally worth $39 for free with this machine. It will be inside the box.

 

 

What are the Non Stick Sheets ?

Excalibur offers 3 types of Non stick sheet, all of which are available here at Love Your Health Australia.

Paraflexx Ultra Silicone Non Stick Drying Sheets – These are non-stick and BPA free. They are made of silicon so can be used for Baking also.

Paraflexx Premium Non Stock Drying Sheets – Only for dehydrating and again BPA free.

Paraflexx Disposable Non Stick Drying Sheets – Made of parchment, use once only. Come in a pack of 100 sheets.

Can I do more than dry Food?

Yes you can. Many crafters use dehydrators for drying flowers, dough sculptures and making potpourri.

You can also use it to raise bread dough.

What is my Warranty?

The Excalibur Res10 10-Tray is covered by an Australian warranty of 2 years domestic use. Problems with Excalibur are infrequent but should you encounter one, replacement parts can be shipped to you without having to send the machine overseas.
