Rated 4 out of 5Â by Josianne Great for beginners to dehydration + travellers
I absolutely love this dehydrator - I got it in a period where I would often travel from my hometown to the town where I studied and I could easily bring it with along for the ride.
It is small which is less intimidating for a newbie to the dehydration wonders. I personally quickly got enthusiastic about dehydration and found it too small for my ambitions, resulting in much more work than if I had a 5-tray one which almost doubles the surface area.
The company is really helpful, at some point there was a problem in the ventilation system and they quickly helped us fix this.

Purchased the Excalibur 4 tray in May of 2012; use it occasionally for mostly almonds. Love how they turn out. However, 1 year later, In July 2013 ordered replacement thermal fuse (heating element) for $16.22. Was easy enough to replace, however, now in Feb 2015 we need to order another! Love the size of the dehydrator for what I need, but frustrated when I have a batch of almonds in the dehydrator and it runs cold. I'm so careful to follow the manufacturers directions in the guide. Wondering if mine is a lemon or if others have this problem.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by ajam So far so good. Just enough space for medium sized-batches.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by busybakerbee I love my Excalibur
So far I love my Excalibur. I've already made breads, cakes, pies, cookies and dyhydrated fruit. It doesn't have a timer/auto-off function but it hasn't been a problem yet. I've left things in there several hours longer than they needed to be because I was at work and couldn't turn it off, and it hasn't ever over dried anything. I might get a timer for the outlet but might not, since it hasn't been an issue yet.
