Excalibur 4948 Dehydrator

The smart helper

With the Excalibur 4948 dehydrator you can prepare preservative free healthy snacks
Make the most of seasonal produce and raw foods with the Excalibur 4948 food dehydrator. Treat yourself with delicious and guiltfree snacks like Zucchini chips or dried fruits or why not enjoy some Arts and Crafts?  With nine trays, a digital controller and Parallexx® horizontal airflow this smart dehydrator offers a large drying capacity and lets you set up two different cycles consecutively.  

Digital controller

Convenience with the press of a button

The digital controller featuring a 48hr timer lets you take advantage of Excalibur’s two time/two temperature setting. Set two different cycles at once and don’t worry about it anymore. The Excalibur dehydrator will automatically change the temperature at the specific time and then turn itself off after the second drying cycle has been completed. You do not have to work your schedule around your dehydrator anymore, it will work around you.

Hyperwave™ Fluctuation

Excalibur is your choice for precise, faster and safer drying

Many dehydrators can only produce one constant temperature, which leads to a dry surface with moisture still trapped inside – an environment for bacteria and mould growth.
Excalibur’s Hyperwave™ patented technology is known for its faster and safer drying process, while keeping enzymes active and overcoming spoilage for your peace of mind. The specifically designed adjustable thermostat lets you create a proper fluctuation in the air temperature to draw moisture from the centre of the food to the dryer outer surface, where it quickly evaporates. During this process the food temperature stays low enough to retain nutrients and enzymes, while the air temperature is high enough to dry your food fast and efficiently, giving bacteria and mould no chance to grow. 

Parallexx® Horizontal Airflow

Fast and even results every time

Rely on Excalibur’s horizontal airflow design for fast and even results with no effort every time.
Cool air is drawn in at the back of the unit, heated, and distributed evenly over each tray by the rear mounted fan. The air circulation within the machine ensures all trays are dried evenly and fast, preventing spoilage at the same time.
Your food retains more nutrients and active enzymes, tastes and looks better without tray rotation.
