Most of us start with a fairly small, usually round dehydrator that holds just a couple of trays. It’s a great start and the perfect way to try things out and see if dehydrating makes sense for you and your family. After a while though, you may be ready to expand and dehydrate more food at once.
If you’re feeding a large family, have lots of produce to dehydrate from the garden each summer and fall, or just want to be able to make larger batches of dried fruits, veggies, or homemade jerky, you’ll be ready to upgrade to a larger model.
If that’s the case for you, I recommend the Excalibur 9-Tray dehydrator. It’s a very affordable electric dehydrator that gives you 15 square feet of drying space.
If that sounds like a lot of space, it’s because it is.
The good news is that the dehydrator doesn’t take up all that much space because of the tightly spaced, vertical 9-tray system.
Dehydrating large amounts of food all at once has never been easier.
Just load up the trays, set the temperature and you’re good to go. The 7″ fan and the design of this dehydrator work together to ensure even dehydrating. There’s no need to rotate trays or move the food around, making it so much better than that inexpensive round dehydrator. Just set it and walk away. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
Each tray has easy to clean polyscreen inserts that will also keep your food from sticking as it dehydrates. That makes for easier food removal and clean up when you’re done. There’s nothing worse than having a big mess to clean up, or losing a large portion of your produce to being stuck to the equipment. That’s not going to happen here.

One thing you should be aware of before you buy is that this dehydrator makes some noise. It’s certainly quieter than my dishwasher, but you can hear it when it’s running. If that’s going to bother you, sit it in the garage or basement, or even a spare room to dehydrate. You can also just turn it on at night so that it runs while you’re sleeping.
This is a great dehydrator that lets you dry a lot of food at once. Perfect for large batch processing of all your favorite fruits, vegetables, and meats for making jerky.0
