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…
