The 5 tray excalibur has been great. I have made beet chips, 5-seed bread, raw crackers, orange zest (dried the peel then blitzed in blender) and am now drying out some chilli peppers I recently gathered from a friends overloaded plants. The dehydrator does a fabulous job. The timer and different heat settings are great. Even drying too. Couldn't be happier. Does need to be kept in a room where the noise of the fan won't annoy you. Great service from Nature's Wonderland, everything packaged well and delivered safely.
