Excalibur Commercial Dehydrators are built for the commercial requirements of orchards, vineyards, organic farms, bakeries, restaurants, raw food kitchens and are also popular for laboratory use when high capacities of sample dehydration is required. Smaller dehydrators are great for home use or when starting out in business but they quickly become time consuming and tiring once your market grows. This unit is built for the commercial requirements of drying foods of various types from fruits and vegetables to jerky and yoghurt.

Excalibur have been manufacturing food dryers for over 35 years and their patented Parallexx™ Horizontal Air Flow and Hyperwave™ Fluctuation Technology drying process make them the leader in their field for food dehydrating and the dehydrators are also suitable for drying meat.

The 12 tray COMM1 model has four individual 6.5"/16.5cm fans to allow even distribution of warm air over a larger area which are individually controlled by their own motor and are mounted on the rear wall along with the heating element. Cool, dry air is sucked in through the rear of the dehydrator, heated up and then evenly distributed across each tray as shown in the diagram. During the dehydration process, the warm air removes the moisture from the food and this moist air is pushed out through the front and replaced with dry air from the back. Horizontal airflow provides even drying, eliminating the need for tray rotation during dehydrating.

The unit draws an economical total of 2,400 watts of single phase electricity; over an 8 hour shift it would only draw around a 3rd of this power as the heating coils cycle on and off as the temperature regulates. This state of the art dehydration unit comes with a programmable digital Computer Control Unit that utilises Temperature Cycling Technology, allowing various Time/Temperature drying profiles and has automatic shut off/cool down feature so you no longer have to manually manipulate drying temperature or timer. It has a 99 hour countdown timer. This readout has adjustable fan delay, alarm type and beeper cycle. User may also select the readout to display in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

The entire cabinet, inside and out, is constructed of 100% High Grade Stainless Steel: welded and finished to strict NSF specifications to prevent food from getting caught between any seams. Door, trays and tray supports are removable for easy cleaning as well as a hinged back assembly attached by wing nuts for easy access. This means less time cleaning and more time producing delicious dried food. Excalibur® set the standard in food health and safety and their commercial line of dehydrators leads the market for commercial businesses. Stringent specifications must be met to achieve the NSF Approval Mark and FDA approval which means one less worry when meeting local Health & Safety regulations. Excalibur’s Tray Screen Material is made from FDA Approved Polypropylene #5 which is BPA Free and one of the safest plastics for direct food contact.

Drying is fast and very little heat is lost as the dehydrator does not need to be taken apart to change the tray sequence during the dehydrating process, simply open the front door and slide out the required tray. Each tray can be removed making space for larger items such as whole fruit, casserole dishes etc. and this height advantage over other food dehydrators makes it ideal for arts and crafts.

Is it easy to clean? You bet it is. Not only does the front door fully remove and the rear door opens via hinges and wingnuts, but the internals are smooth radius walls that don't have any sharp or annoying edges - this allows for easy wipe down. Strict NSF specifications require the design to prevent food scraps from getting caught in such places as seams, joins or corners.

What's with the drying sheets? For your convenience, adding Non-Stick Premium (Teflon) 14" or Ultra Silicone 14" Sheets to your order is as easy as selecting the quantity. This will be added straight on to your order. Great for roll-ups, yoghurt or just keeping the unit clean.

These drying 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. You can select between Teflex (Teflon-based material) or Silicone based sheets. Both achieve the same result.
