Congrats to Ellen, the winner of the 5-tray Excalibur Dehydrator! Gee, I’m jealous and I already have one…
You read it right! Excalibur is giving away one 5-tray Small Garden Food Dehydrator ($249.95 retail) here at dkMommy Spot. I reviewed an Excalibur dehydrator a few months back, and if you heard the podcast, you know how impressed I am with the unit. I’m thrilled to be able to get one of you set up with an Excalibur, especially now in these tough economic times. Dehydrating your own foods and herbs makes plenty of economic sense. You’ll save money and retain the nutritional value of many of your favorite foods. I’d highly suggest dehydrating and storing away those fruits and vegetables as they come into season so your family can enjoy the benefits of these foods for months to come. Or as your herb garden grows, dry your own herbs for medicinal and cooking purposes.
The Excalibur 3526T, which will be given to one very fortunate reader, features a 26-hour timer and five trays providing eight square feet of drying space. If you’re a first-time dehydrator and want to dry your own produce or herbs, this is a fantastic unit to get you started. I’ve found the Excalibur very easy to use, and with a fan in the back of the unit, you don’t have to worry about babysitting your food throughout the process. The heat is evenly distributed which gets rid of the need to constantly flip trays around for even drying. And with an adjustable thermostat, drying herbs is pretty simple as well. You’re able to get a lower heat setting which will keep tender plants from drying too quickly or scorching.
If you want to hear more about the Excalibur, please listen to my Dehydrating Podcast which discusses the unit in more detail. While I talked about the 9-tray unit, the 5-tray being given away here has all the same features that impressed me.
