The mighty Excalibur Dehydrator range is unbeatable in the world of drying. Whether it be fruit, vegetables, meats, flowers, nuts, yoghurts, herbs or anything you require dried, the Excalibur will provide the best tool available to do it well and to do it correctly. Decades of experience has helped bring you the best dehydrator for the job.

The Excalibur Dehydrators available from Sprout are suited to our power supply and ready to go as soon as they arrive at your door.

Excalibur has been successfully operating in the US market for decades and has positioned themselves as the go-to brand for dehydrators and other drying products. You just have to read the reviews on US-based websites to see that they are highly regarded. Get yours today.

Arrow Explanation of Model Numbers: the 4500 shown here on this page is identical to the US version 3500. The number '4' distinguishes the fact that the machine has an Aussie plug at the end of the cord and is suited to our 220/240V power. This is the only difference to the 3500. The number 5 denotes it has 5 trays and the double zero shows that it does not have a 26-hour timer. The model with the timer, the 4526T, is available right here. Do not get sucked in to buying a 110V anything from overseas sites - they will not cope with the 240V.

Should any part or parts of the Excalibur 4500 Dehydrator become defective during the first 2 full years, the Australian Distributor (located in QLD) will repair or replace the defective part/s at the manufacturer’s option free of charge.

The Excalibur brand has been trusted by American customers for decades. Now available here in Australia. All Excalibur Dehydrators are 100% BPA-Free.

Arrow A Quick Note on the Drying Sheets (Premium Teflon or Ultra Silicone):

Excalibur Drying SheetsWhat's with the Non-Stick Drying Sheets? These sheets are produced by Excalibur specifically for their machines. The sheets offer a protective layer on top of the mesh trays that come with the machine. 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 or ooze through the mesh trays. They are quite thick in nature, non-stick, easy to wipe down and are re-usable over and over again. They will last you for years and years. You can save on the purchase price and postage by ordering them with your unit. Order one to try it out or get nine for the whole unit - you can find the Premium Sheets here and Silicon here.

The Premium Paraflexx sheets are a Teflon base material with the alternative being the Silicone based Ultra sheet. Some people have a preference of one over the other but ultimately, they achieve the same results.

Arrow Looking for the best food dehydrator that money can buy? Look no further than the Excalibur 5-Tray series.

The model shown on this page is the 5-tray no timer (4500) food dehydrator manufactured by the well-known Excalibur company. The 5-Tray models are a very 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 5 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!

Arrow 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 5-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 singles or smaller families who want the convenience of a bench-top dehydrator.

Dries up to about 11kgs at a time, it has a built in thermostat, 12.7cm fan and 400 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)

Arrow Customer Reviews & Quotes

"This Excalibur dehydrator has exceeded my expectations. It makes great organic, "less sweet" fruit rollups and dehydrates cooked broccoli to a crunchy treat. It does make more noise than a fan so make sure to put it away from your bedroom if you will be running it overnight. Make sure to buy the Paraflexx sheets sold separately if you intend to make rollups. The recipe book is very helpful and quite extensive. I'm delighted with it and wish I had purchased this dehydrator sooner." - brook

"Awesome! I want to dehydrate all seasonal foods because I won't have waste anymore. It's quiet, not a lot of heat through the house and it will pay for itself. The unit is fantastic!" - Amazon US Customer

"Best purchase I have made in a long time. I use it to dehydrate all of the extra produce from my garden. No wasted food from the grocery store. No more purchased dog treats. Too many uses to list." - Lauriet

"Had a harvest maid years ago, and wanted to start dehydrating again. So purchased the 5 drawer Excalibur. I love it! Works great and just about the size I need for the most part. Not too big so doesn't take up a lot of room. Have been using it a lot this summer and storing veggies for use during the snowy winter. Can buy fresh produce when in season and save. It's well made and a good price for the quality. They shipped quickly too. I would definitely reccomend this to others." - JayP

Very impressed with this item. Within 24 hours of it arriving we have already made apple/strawberry fruit leather, dried bananas and dried apples. The whole family loves it! I will be saving so much money now not having to buy these items from the supermarket. The kids love getting involved too. Very simple and easy to use. (Posted on 15/11/2014)
