View Full Version : Who has the Good4U dehydrator?
11-08-2009, 08:50 PM
Any opinions? I am asking for a dehydrator for Christmas and I'm torn between this one and the excalibur. It seems from what I've read so far that it's quieter and costs a bit less...
I don't plan to use it every day but would like to be able to soak and dry nuts, buckwheat, and make flax crackers. And it would be fun to play around with warm meals in the winter.
Thanks for any input. I know this has been discussed before but I didn't find recent threads...

theres some debate about whether the kind of plastic used for that dehydrator is ok... go to giveittomeraw.com and theres debates. i dont really know what the truth is about it. i dont know if alissa still sells it but i would guess its ok if she still sells it...

I love my Good4u DH but the shelves are stacked close together so i don't get much height. I see they have something that you can buy, extra that fixes that.
Other than that i actually like it more than my excaliber...but i had that awhile ago. The ex's may have come a long way.

It is quieter :)

When I was buying a dehydrator I looked into the good4u one too, until I learned that it's a company that has totally ripped off excalibur's design and copied all of their materials, including the dehydration guide. Good4u has also changed it's name a few times to avoid legal trouble. Learning this totally swayed me to get the excalibur because I didn't want to support unethical business practices
I got a scratch-n-dent 4-tray from excalibur's ebay site for like $70. It's way quieter than my brother's older 5-tray, and I've never wished I'd gotten a bigger one, but it's just for me :)

thanks to all! StellaJewels, I appreciate your ethical concerns. That would sway me,too.
