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 D902SHD is the long awaited stainless steel version of the world's most popular dehydrator. Hygenic, solid build, robust steel trays and fit for any kitchen, it certainly is something you can proudly use in your home.

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


Stainless Steel models are also available in the 5-Tray Model D502SHD or the mighty 10-Tray Model

Explanation of Model Numbers: the D902SHD shown here on this page is identical to the US version D900SHD. The number '2' 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 D900. The number 9 denotes it has 9 trays. 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 D902SHD 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.


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 five for the whole unit - you can find Premium Teflon here and Ultra Silicon here.

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

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. Your new dehydrator will create the most delicious and nutritious snacks - and you have total control over the ingredients.

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)

Customer Reviews & Quotes

"This dehydrator really works well. We wanted to be able to dry large quantities of apple slices at a time, which it does flawlessly. There are all kinds of interesting ideas out there for things to try in the dehydrator, but so far we've had success making dried apples, "eggplant bacon", dried pineapple, fruit leather, barbecue zucchini chips, and dried tomatoes. All were delicious. The only thing which we tried, then regretted, was drying slices of onion. If cutting onions makes you cry, you don't want to dehydrate them.

The stainless trays are nice, and I find them reasonably easy to wash in the sink. Overall, this has been a great addition to our kitchen. We can now dry herbs and food in larger quantities. The dehydrator comes with a book that had a lot of ideas, and is easy to follow." - Sailor Girl

"Nice to have temperature control and timer. Easily check individual trays while running. Clear door is great. Fan blows strongest in center, so non stick sheets sometimes flap as weight becomes less. Highly recommend sheets for speed and cleanup, or lack there of. Runs s little hotter at top rack than bottom. I put thicker items up there. Been cranking out peppers, apples pears squash tomatoes leathers. Looking forward to jerky and crackers" - Greg Wisch

"Best dehydrator! I started making my own jerky about a year ago. Since I was new to it, I bought a cheap round dehydrator, which was fine, but it took over 12 hours to dehydrator a small amount of jerky.

Then the Excalibur arrived on my doorstep the other day and after the initial shock of how enormous the thing was (it's huge!), I put in my first batch of jerky. Not only did it make twice the amount of jerky, it did it in less than half the time. I win!

If you're going to do any significant amount of dehydrating, save yourself the trouble and just get this one!" - Lauren

"Excellent quality dehydrator. Fan blows from back and dehydrates food on all trays evenly. Stainless steel trays ensure no BPA plastic touches food. Temperature settings and timer insures perfect dehydration for time allotted." - Knitter
