1000th Post Party Giveaway: Deluxe Excalibur 3900 9-Tray Dehydrator ($220 Value)

It’s been a hard secret to keep, but at last I can announce that after the smashing success of our Excalibur Dehydrator giveaway last fall, it’s time to give away another one!

I’ve owned a 9-Tray Excalibur for about a year and a half now. I keep it on my kitchen counter the way that most people have a microwave or toaster oven. Yes, I use it almost that often!

As someone who uses my dehydrator so extensively, I can’t imagine going back to the cheaper model I used to have. This is the ultimate dehydrator. It is absolutely top-notch and I cannot say enough good things about it.

In my previous review, I mentioned the main reasons that I chose to go with an Excalibur Dehydrator in particular:

  1. Large, square shaped trays (as opposed to round with a hole in the center). The means no more wonky-shaped fruit leather. No more grains falling through the cracks into the dehydrator motor. Less wasted space in arranging items on the tray.
  2. Adjustable trays. You can remove the tray above if you’re drying something tall to give it more space. You can remove all of the trays to do something like mason jars with yogurt, or for rising bread. You can remove the bottom half of the trays to do pint sized jars of yogurt and still keep drying nuts or herbs or fruit on the upper trays. The possibilities are endless!
  3. Trays that slide out through the front. With a round dehydrator, I had to lift off all of the top trays in order to access something in the middle or on the bottom. With the front access, I can just open it up and pull out the exact tray that I want to see.
  4. A heating/fan unit along the back, rather than down at the bottom. This allows for more even heating of the entire dehydrator and items that finish more or less at the same time.

There are so many things that I use my dehydrator for! These days, the most common is probably for making crispy nuts (nuts that are soaked and then dried). I also use it frequently for making granola, for soaking and dehydrating oats for granola bars, for drying herbs or vegetables, for making dried apples or pears or fruit leathers, for making “cheese” crackers… just to name a few.

One additional feature about the model that is being given away is a 26 hour adjustable timer, so that you can set the dehydrator to turn off while you are out or during the night, so that you don’t over-dry things or waste energy! This is new since I bought mine, but it would be such a handy feature to have!

To learn more about my thoughts on the Excalibur Dehydrator, definitely check out my review.

Another great place to learn more is in this promotional video. I wanted to embed it into this post, but wasn’t able to. It’s worth clicking through and visiting their website, though, so that you can get more of a feel for how the dehydrator functions and what makes it unique.

      1. Oh, thank you! I don’t think I’ll try clearing the cookies, since I don’t know how, and I’d have to get my husband to do it for me. I’ll just trust that if you pick my survey (high hopes here! 🙂 ), you will remember who it is! 🙂 Thanks again for helping me with this, and for the great giveaways that you’re doing…so fun!

  2. Wow, thank you thank you for this giveaway!! My husband and I were just saying how badly we needed to get another one of these. We had one, but sold it last year when he was unemployed. Now we’re going back on raw foods, and this would come in really handy. I am totally doing this contest!


  3. wow! that’s awesome, I have been wanting to get one! my boys love dried fruit and it would be wonderful to make my own without all the added sugar!

  4. Hmm, when I clicked on the link to read your previous review, I got an error message. It’s past my bedtime as it is, so I will try to click around a bit more tomorrow. :>)

    I did want to mention that I have a Cabela’s dehydrator that is similar to an Excalibur, and I posted a review of it today, kind of based on what Katie at Kitchen Stewardship said about the Excalibur versus the Nesco round one. Interesting stuff, for sure!

  5. Wow – your blog is awesome and you’ve found some INCREDIBLE stuff. I need a morning to spend more time here reading and drooling over stuff you have posted plus checking out your other blog. You sound like you have a lot in common with us. We are trying to move to a more self sufficient sustainable lifestyle.
    We now produce our own meat, milk, veggies, fruit and working on honey – I wish it was 100% but every little bit helps.

  6. This is an INCREDIBLE giveaway, Stephanie!

    On the giveaway survey (which is GENIUS, by the way) does it count if we are already subscribers to KotH and Saving Naturally?

  7. I got one after Christmas and I LOVE it!! It also has taken the place my microwave used to have, because I, too, use it THAT often. I usually dry sprouted grains in it, but occasionally use it for yogurt, drying herbs, etc. Couldn’t live without it!
