Plus Sign FREE INCLUSIONS: Drying Sheet, copy of "Preserve It Naturally" book valued at $39.00, 60-Recipe eBook (valued at $30.00) and Free Delivery to your door.


For your convenience, adding Non-Stick Drying 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.

What's with the Drying 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 one sheet received with the unit (eg. Select 4 Extra Sheets to receive 5 in total). Grab a couple to get you started or grab a pack of 5 for every tray - your choice!

Why Dehydrate?

Dehydrating food is a great way of preserving vitamins that might otherwise be lost due to cooking at high temperatures. Dry fruits, vegetables, meats, and more! Dried foods are a great treat to snack on because they retain almost all of the nutrients and flavor.

Make preservative-free fruit leathers, rollups, homemade jerky and your own granola.

Use a dehydrator to dry culinary herbs for use all year round.

Dehydrate herbs and flowers to make you own natural tea blends.

Use this dehydrator to make your own all natural dog biscuits and pet treats.

Use a dehydrator for arts and crafts! A dehydrator speeds up the drying process, which is handy for drying ornaments or flowers. The Excalibur Dehydrator ensures even drying and helps to preserve color in flowers.

Why Excalibur?

Excalibur Dehydrators differ from other dehydrators because of their unique horizontal drying system in the rear of the unit. This provides a sure way to provide an even dehydration process as the warm air removes moisture, which is pushed out the front of the machine. There is also no need to rotate trays because of the horizontal drying system.

Excalibur pioneered the Parallex drying system and continues to be the worldwide leader in dehydration technology and innovation. Only Excalibur offers the Parallex system, which makes drying easy. Millions have rediscovered the benefits of food dehydration.

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)
