View Full Version : Sausage Maker dehydrator

Has anyone ever used one of these? They seem really nice, but I figure the word sausage repels the raw food community. is there any reason this would not be good for raw. It goes down to 95 degrees.

Yes, I have seen them on ebay as well and was very tempted. You are right, they do look very nice. If anyone knows anything about these, please tell me if they are just a dehydrator or do they have a smoke feature?

At the May training, Alissa spoke highly of this product. I'm pretty sure sh said that it dehydrates food more thoroughly and evenly. (she also mentioned that people may be turned off my the fact that it's called "The Sausage Maker", lol). :)

Have you checked out the Excalibur, available from Alissa? Seems to me it's cheaper through her, and the Excalibur is a great dehydrator, comes with 4 or 9 trays.

I have this one and I think it's excellent. I bought it because it's stainless steel and I just didn't want food on plastic as in excalibur. Recently, I bought the 4-tray excalibur because I need a small one to warm things up, as I didn't want to waste electricity with my bigger sausagemaker brand. Performance-wise, it is way less powerful compared to the sausagemaker. Also, designwise, I like the sausagemaker better.

I would be perfectly happy buying the excalibur from Alissa, but my boyfriend is the one buying it and he likes stainless steel, AND more importantly he is the one who found the SM so it's like it's his idea, and being a man, that's better for him. ;) He's great.
