Excalibur Food Dehydrator 3926TB Review
The Excalibur Food Dehydrator 3926TB is our pick for the best home dehydrator on the market. This food dehydrator has a horizontal airflow. It produces excellent results and has even drying. It has a very large capacity with 9 square dehydrator trays. This means it has 15 square feet of drying space. The square dehydrator trays make it easy to fill with food. With the trays out, we have also found this dehydrator to be an excellent place to proof bread.
The temperature range of this Excalibur dehydrator is 105-160 degrees Fahrenheit. Since it goes to the higher end of the temperature scale, it is a perfect dehydrator for food like meat, especially jerky. You want the temperature to be high enough to dry out the food, without sealing the outside of the food holding moisture on the inside. If moisture is trapped in the food, it can lead to bacterial contamination and food spoilage. Fortunately, this dehydrator doesn’t have the problem of sealing the food without drying it.
The Excalibur is completely BPA free. Since many of the parts are plastic, if you are avoiding chemicals this is ideal. The plastic trays and parts make this food dehydrator very easy to clean. Many of the parts are dishwasher safe as well which is a real bonus. This food dehydrator comes with a whopping 10-year warranty in the US. The warranty length may vary in other countries. There are numerous accessories made for the Excalibur food dehydrator 3926TB as well.
We have only 2 minor issues with Excalibur 3926TB food dehydrator. Both issues are due to the power of the fan. The fan can be a bit noisy at times, but this can be said of most food dehydrators. The other issue is with herbs, once they get close to being dry, they can get blown around because they are so lite. All that being said, the Excalibur dehydrator reviews are stellar and we would highly recommend this top-rated food dehydrator.
