PRE-ORDER Black or White 9-Tray with Timer: you can pre-order these models to make sure you get allocated a unit from the next container. No payment is required until the unit is ready to ship and your credit card won't be charged until you authorise it. If you are wanting to use Paypal, please select payment via Direct Deposit so that your order can be confirmed without needing to pay upfront. An approximate ETA at this stage is early-to-mid-August 2016. These sell out quickly - don't miss out.
Buyer's Tip: the analogue, in-built timer is simply a component that switches off power to the unit once the cycle is complete. You can achieve the same result with a mains power timer available from places like Bunnings, KMart or Kogan for $15 to $20. If you are keen to get a hold of your new dehydrator sooner rather than later, then I recommend buying a non-timer model and fitting it to a separate timer. Same price - same result.

Model numbers: 9-Tray No Timer is 4900; 9-Tray With Timer is 4926T. The '4' denotes Australian Plug, '9' is number of trays; '26T' is for 26 hour timer. Model numbers for overseas units will be different so don't get confused by international sites. These are the same models as here except for the plug.
What's with the Teflex Sheets? These sheets are specifically for the Excalibur machines and offer a protective layer on top of the mesh trays. Some people use them all the time no matter what they are drying (saves on cleaning the trays) but they are mainly used for drying liquid or runny type foods such as fruit strips, yogurt roll-ups etc. - those types of things that would normally run through the mesh trays. They are quite thick in nature, non-stick, easy to wipe down and are re-usable over and over again. You can save on the purchase price and postage by ordering them with your unit. The Extra Sheets are in addition to the free sheet received with the unit (eg. Select 8 Extra Sheets to receive 9 in total). Grab a couple to get you started or grab a pack of 9 for every tray - your choice!
Looking for the best food dehydrator that money can buy? Look no further than the Excalibur 9-Tray series.
This series is a 9-tray food dehydrator manufactured by the well-known US-based Excalibur company. The 9-Tray models are their most popular dehydrator and they've really gone out of their way to make this the "ultimate" food dehydrator for home use.
Specifically made for people who demand a lot from their food dehydrator, it has 9 large trays and a unique design that is way ahead of traditional round dehydrators.
Like all Excalibur dehydrators, it uses a trademarked horizontal-airflow drying system, ensuring that the food is dried evenly on all the trays. The drying system is located in the back of the unit, pushing warm air out the front. Thanks to the horizontal drying, there's no need to rotate the trays. With this dehydrator you'll get perfect results every time, with minimal effort!
So why use a dehydrator?
Well, for one, it's a great way to make snacks that are both delicious and nutritional. Unlike the case of high heat cooking, food that has been dehydrated holds almost all of the nutritional value and flavor. How about dehydrating strawberries and enjoying them every breakfast? Or you could make beef jerky, which is great to snack on when you need some quick energy.
According to reviews, the Excalibur 9-Tray series blows the competing food dehydrating machines out of the water. The proprietary dehydrating system really works like a charm, and produces incredible results. Sure, you might have to pay a bit more than you would with a budget dehydrator, but the results are well worth it.
It doesn't get any easier than this! Also, the quality of this machine is outstanding. Don't be surprised if it lasts for decades - that's how well built it is.
This is the perfect size for large families, gardeners & crafts-people.
Dries up to 18kgs at a time, it has a built in thermostat, 18cm fan and 600 watt motor.
Available in black or appliance white. Both models come equipped with a black door and trays.
This Food Dehydrator Retains Living Enzymes
The Excalibur dehydrator is reputed to be the best dehydrator for preserving the nutrient levels of living foods. The best technique for retaining the enzymes is to set the Excalibur on 105oF/40oC setting throughout the entire cycle. That way, the food temp will never go above 120oF/48oC even after it is dry.
Dehydration is the Healthiest, Easiest, Most Economical Way to Preserve Foods!

Excalibur dries BETTER, FASTER & SAFER thanks to the Hyperware Fluctuation.
Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat causing "case hardening", a dry surface with moisture trapped inside - a perfect environment for yeast, mould and bacteria growth.
Excalibur's Adjustable Thermostat lets you take advantage of Hyperware Fluctuation (changing heat through the drying cycle) for faster, better and safer dried foods.
As the temperature fluctuates up, the surface moisture evaporates. Then as the temperature fluctuates down, the inner moisture moves to the drier surface. The food temperature stays LOW enough to keep the enzymes active, and the air temperature gets high enough to dry food fast, overcoming yeast, mould, bacteria growth and spoilage.
With the adjustable Hyperware thermostat and removable trays, you can dry just about anything!
The adjustable thermostat lets you fine tune to the exact temperature you need
Removable trays lets you customise drying space for small or large items eg. 1.25 litre yogurt which is impossible in a stackable dehydrator.
Lots of drying space so you can handle large volumes up to 10-times faster.
Electronics are back-mounted so spills won't bake on
The adjustable Hyperware thermostat allows precision drying
Units for sale through Sprout have the 26-hour timer for added versatility
Removable, dishwasher-safe trays are easy to load; remove some for drying bulky items
Economical - just 6c to 7c electricity per hour - environmentally conscious product
No harmful fumes like low-quality styrene dehydrators
The polycarbonate is a natural heat insulator, better than single-wall stainless steel
Virtually indestructible - trays won't crack or break - made from medical-grade recycled plastics (as well as the case, door and knobs)
