Excalibur Dehydrator..The Perfect Way To Enjoy Your Favorite Food All Year Round
An Excalibur Dehydrator is the very best way for drying out food items for storage purposes.
I own one of these models and for me it is an essential piece of kit. So I felt compelled to write about it. It is especially good if you are
juicing your food
for dieting or detoxing.
It can also save you money too. How? It means that you can buy the fruits, vegetables and other seasonal items when they are more readily available and cheaper, dry them out and preserve them for future use. Not only that, but commercially dried food items are always more expensive.
You can then store these items in airtight jars or any suitable container, ready for when you fancy juicing them. You can enjoy many different fruits and vegetables virtually all year round. A great advantage with these machines is that the food items that are dried in them actually retain their sugar content..so sugar does not need to be added!
The Excaliber Dehydrator is available in three models, where the only real difference between them all is the size, the actual capacity and the number of trays offered. All the functions of the machine are the same.
The Excalibur food dehydrator is very simple to use. All that is required is to cut your desired food item into thick slices and then put them on the drying trays. Literally within hours your food is all dried to a level that you desire.
So how does it work?
Excaliber Food Dehydrators evenly distribute the airflow across each tray, enabling the food to dry evenly on each individual tray and this is all done by a fan at the back of the machine. It is important that airflow and drying is evenly done, otherwise over-heating can kill the essential enzymes in the foods. Temperature is also regulated thanks to the adjustable thermostat fitted inside the unit. This ensures the food is dried without the nutrients being harmed, and very importantly the flavor is also not compromised too.
General maintenance couldn't be simpler. Just slide the trays out and they can be washed with a mild detergent in warm water. The door can be easily removed too for convenience in cleaning. A useful tip is to place non-stick sheets on the trays. This will not make it so messy inside the unit by catching spills, and then can be removed and replaced any time.
The Excalibur Dehydrator is a marvellous machine and my verdict is that every home should not be without one.
It can be used in conjunction with a
stainless steel juicer
or, if you want to take your juicing to the next level, how about an
Omega 8005 Juicer.
