Excalibur Food Dehydrator Review
Average Price: $190.36
Frugal5 Score: 7.1/10
Description
We can't have a Top Five Food Dehydrator list without including the Excalibur. This beast features an on/off button, automatic temperature control function, removable trays and convection heating to reduce the amount of time you'll need to tend to your product.

The folks at Excalibur know how important it is for you to preserve your food (rather than just dry it out) which is why their design is so perfect for the raw food enthusiast. The convection-style heat means evenly-distributed heat throughout the unit and the removable trays mean that users can dry even more products than many other food dehydrator models. 

Best of all, the patented automatic temperature control design allows the heat inside of the unit to fluctuate depending on the amount of heat needed. This means food will dry out more evenly and thus have a reduced risk of contamination or uneven drying patterns.
