The Excalibur 3948CDB 9 Tray Food Dehydrator has just come on the market and has a very unique new dual timer/temperature controller. (Read all about it in this review!) This model is so new that you’ll find very few customer reviews online, but Excalibur is one of the most well-known makers of food dehydrators and has a reputation for quality products.
This 9-tray food dehydrator is loaded with all the best traditional features plus some new ones, including a clear door, a 48 hour timer, and a brand new digital controller that gives you the option of setting two time periods at two different temperature settings.
As you might expect, those cool new features do add to the cost, but once you find out all the details, you may well decide it’s worth it just for that new Two-Time, Two-Temperature Controller alone! Read review…

* UPDATE OCT. 2015 – NEW LOWER PRICE: This model is now selling on Amazon for just over $175. Now that’s more like an economy model price!
The Excalibur 2900ECB 9-Tray Economy Dehydrator was originally priced so high that it could hardly be called “economy”, but it now costs about $65 less than Excalibur’s most popular 9-tray model the 3926TB (see the 3926TB review here).
Excalibur is a well-known dehydrator manufacturer with an excellent reputation, and this 2900ECB model is a top seller online that gets great reviews from customers. Before you read further, be aware that it does not have a timer. If you can live without that, then this could be a good choice for you because you get a full size 9-tray dehydrator from a top quality manufacturer at a very reasonable price. Read review…

If you’re looking for large capacity and the best features, the Excalibur 3926TB 9-Tray Dehydrator might be the perfect choice for you. This top selling model gives you 15 square feet of drying space, it includes an adjustable temperature control and automated timer, and it gets top ratings in customer reviews online.
It’s also from an excellent manufacturer. Often referred to as the first name in food dehydrators, Excalibur has a reputation for building quality, long-lasting products.
This model is a 9-tray, box style electric food dehydrator with a unique drying system designed to provide even heat and air flow for the best results on all types of foods.

As always, you need to “know before you buy”, so this review covers all the details to help you decide whether this food dehydrator is right for you. Read review…
