Why we love our Excalibur Food Dehydrator:
Here at CFH we are in love with our Excalibur Food Dehydrator. Excalibur Food Dehydrators are well-made, sturdy, and reliable. They offer low-temperature settings making them perfect for fermenting and culturing (counter-top yogurt starters, dairy kefir, kombucha, or vegetable ferments) even when your home is on the cooler side. (We suggest barely turning the temperature setting on and running with the door propped open or removed for a nice room-temperature setting.) The Excalibur Food Dehydrator can even double as a yogurt maker for culturing our Greek yogurt starter (or any other yogurt starter requiring heat). As a bonus, they are also energy efficient! According to the manufacturer, an Excalibur Food Dehydrator only uses $.04-$.05 of electricity per hour!

    • Does this come with some kind of cookbook or detailed instructions?
    • The 2900 comes with basic instructions for operating the machine. The 3500 and 3900 models come with a book of recipes and suggestions for dehydrating different things.

    • What makes this the economy model? What am I giving up by ordering this one? Thx.
    • The deluxe model has a more powerful motor, and comes with a 10-year warranty rather than a 5-year warranty as this one does.

    • If I am mainly buying this to do fruit leathers and nuts do I need the more powerful machine, or is this just fine????
    • The only difference between the 2k series and the 3k series is a higher quality motor and the longer warranty (due to the better motor)​. Both are plenty powerful for those types of projects.

    • Do quart size jars fit inside this size for yogurt making? If so, how many will fit at once?

Awesome thing to have! Review by Becca

I love my dehydrator. It's WAY bigger than I expected it to be, but this is a blessing. I've used it for drying foods, making yogurt, and proofing bread. I definitely recommend this, esp if you have a large family!
