Excalibur's Unique Drying System
Cool air is drawn in the back, heated, and distributed evenly across each tray. During the dehydration process, warm air removes moisture from foods and is pushed out the front of the machine.
Excalibur Vs. Round Food Dehydrators
Round dehydrators cannot distribute heat as evenly as the Excalibur resulting in less controlled drying and an increase in the time to dry, as well as more maintenance due to frequent tray re-stacking and cleaning due to spillage.
