Dehydration is a really good way to preserve foods. It’s healthy, clean and cheap. It really concentrates the natural flavour of the food. The Excalibur 3926TB has been receiving some rave reviews so we thought it’s time we had a quick look at it.
The fist thing that struck us is the price. For such a professional piece of equipment it seemed like a really good deal. Have a look at the latest price of the Excalibur. Here are some of the key specifications of the 3926TB:
There are 9 trays in total which adds up to a massive 15 square feet of drying space. There really is a lot of space in there! There’s also a built in timer which means you don’t always need to be monitoring it. Just set if off and forget about it. It’s as simple as that.
As you would expect there is an adjustable thermostat which means you can adjust the temperature that the Excalibur dries at.
But what about the most important thing? What are the results like? First of all everything is dried at exactly the same rate. This means whatever is in the tray is nice and consistent in all of the trays.
Obviously different objects dry at different rates so it all depends on what you put in the trays. But the results are great as long as you set the required temperature (there is a rough guide on top of the device). It does exactly what it’s meant to and at a good speed. The following items are perfect for dehydrating in the Excalibur:
- Living foods
- Can be used for raising bread & making yoghurt
- Meats & fish
The Excalibur has a strong sturdy design (even though it’s mostly plastic) and is reliable. It’s perfect for families, gardeners, craftspeople, sportsmen and even small kitchens. You can’t really go wrong with it – some of the alternatives seem to be quite unreliable. It will fit almost anywhere due to its size – 9 x 17 x 12.5 inches.
