The all-new Excalibur 3948 dehydrator brings the 3900 series dehydrator into the computer-controlled digital age.

Excalibur digital controllerThe new 3948 model features a new all-digital controller that offers many benefits over the non-digital excalibur models:

More accurate thermostat - the new digital thermostat is more precise than non-digital

Digital Shut-Off Timer - lets you set it and forget it.  Timer will automatically turn off dehydrator when the set time is complete.

Two Time/Two Temperature - speeds up the drying process. After loading food onto the trays, set the dehydrator at a higher temperature for a specified period of time; and then set the dehydrator at a lower temperature for a specified period of time. The unit automatically adjusts after the 1st setting and turns off when the 2nd setting is complete.

Wide Temperature Range - the new digital model has the widest temperature range of all Excalibur dehydrators.  It can be set as low as 95 degrees F. (other models have a 105 minimum temperature)  The temperature range is low enough to preserve active enzymes in fruits and vegetables and this model is recommended for people into raw and living food lifestyle.  The maximum temperature is high enough (165 degrees F) to meet safety standards for dehydrating meat for jerky.

Excalibur Clear Polycarbonate DoorThe new 3948 model also includes the new clear door that allows you to monitor the dehydration process without removing the door panel.

The Parallexx design, with a temperature controlled, fan forced, horizontal drying system mounted in the rear is exclusive to the 3000 Series. The same features found in Excalibur's USDA approved $6500.00 commercial an affordable home unit.

With over 20 years of manufacturing excellence, the Excalibur Food Dehydrator sets the industry standard for design, quality, and dependability.

Excalibur ED3948CDB

The All-New 3948 dehydrator has the following upgrades over the 2000 series:

  • UPGRADED MOTOR - Last 20+ years of continuous 24 hour per day, every day use due to its use of higher quality components, more copper and tighter motor windings versus 2900 Economy Series
  • UPGRADED DIGITAL THERMOSTAT - more precise and will last 5 times as long as 2900 Economy series
  • BUILT IN TIMER - will run the dehydrator for up to 48 hours and then automatically turn the dehydrator off.

Why the Excalibur Dehydrator
Excalibur Offers the Turbo Charged Parallexx Drying System. Millions have rediscovered the benefits of food dehydration. Healthy, nutritious, and tasty food at a huge savings. Now Excalibur makes drying easy. For centuries food has been dried in the sun or open air - a lengthy, messy and difficult process inviting contamination and spoilage. With the introduction of electric dehydrators the drying process was improved. But most manufacturers offered round stackable models with a heating unit in the bottom. Excalibur pioneered a rear-mounted equipment package allowing horizontal or parallel air flow...The Parallexx System.

What is a Premiflexx non stick dehydrator sheet?

Our Premiflexx non-stick sheets are solid sheets, unlike the mesh sheets that are included with the dehydrator.   They are washable and re-useable.

Excalibur Teflex and Excalibur Mesh Sheet Swatch

They are used for dehydrating liquids (such as blended fruits- to make fruit roll-ups)  or really sticky/gooey items that  would normally drip through the mesh sheets that are included with the dehydrator.   They are also required for making THIN sprouted essene breads and crackers. Order Premiflexx sheets separately here.

  • Fast, Easy, Economical and Efficient

  • Almost unbreakable and FDA approved polycarbonate trays. Inserts make cleaning a snap.

How Parallexx Works
Excalibur dehydrator- parallexx drying system- for even drying.
The fan, heating element, and adjustable thermostat are mounted in the rear.  Cool air is drawn in the back, heated up, and distributed evenly across each tray.  During the dehydration process, warm air removes moisture from foods and is pushed out the front of the machine.

Excalibur Parallexx System Advantages:

  • Complete drying system in rear. (includes thermostat and fan)
  • Easy to clean... Spills fall on seamless bottom.
  • Horizontal drying provides even drying, eliminating tray rotations. Fast drying...
  • Adjustable thermostat allows perfect drying every time.
  • Square design increases drying area "25%" with no holes in center of tray.
  • Versatile... Trays can be removed to expand drying chamber.

Typical Round Dehydrator
Typical Round Dehydrator- disadvantages- uneven heating and dripping..
Normal drips fall on the electrical controls beneath the food.   This can cause electrical problems as well as being very difficult to clean.   The more trays that are added, the further the food is away from the heat, dramatically increasing the drying time, and requiring frequent tray rotation day and night to prevent spoilage.  Who wants to "BABYSIT" THEIR DEHYDRATOR?!!

Standard Dehydrator Disadvantages:

  • Round Stackable Units Heating unit in bottom. (many without fan or thermostat)
  • Hard to clean... Spills fall directly on electric components.
  • Vertical drying requires tray rotation as trays closest to heat source dry first.
  • Slow drying...Units without fan or thermostat may spoil food or not dry at all.
  • Round design cuts off corners and has holes in center, reducing usable drying area.
  • Non-adjustable stackable design restricts size of drying chamber.

Any dehydrator will dry food. Excalibur dries BETTER, FASTER & SAFER thanks to HYPERWAVE FLUCTUATION

hyperwaveexcal.jpg (20862 bytes)

ordinarydried.jpg (9680 bytes)Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat causing “case hardening,” a dry surface with moisture trapped inside - a perfect environment for bacteria growth.  Excalibur’s Adjustable Thermostat lets you take advantage of Hyperwave Fluctuation (changing heat through the drying cycle) for faster, better, 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 bacteria growth and spoilage. Perfect for raw and living foods.
