If you dehydrate them enough so that there is NO moisture left in them, then you can store them in the cupboard. But if there is any moisture, then keep them in the fridge. That is where we keep ours. If they lose their crispness, just throw them back in the dehydrator for about 30 minutes or so to recrisp them.

Oh, and just thought of this, too. Are you covering your bread when you store it in the refrigerator? If not, it will absorb the smells in the fridge.

can you dehydrate for more then the stated 18-24 hours?
thanks for your information!!!!!

I think it's probably safe to dehydrate for longer than 24hrs, I do it all the time with my dehydrator but I don't have the excalibur which I know dehydrates stuff faster. I sometimes leave things in for a few days or more if I want no moisture to be left. It just depends on what you want to do, I think for crackers you could dehydrate for however long but it depends on what they are made out of and how thick etc. If they are pretty thick and you dehydrate for a long time they will get really hard and not taste very good but if they are thin you shouldn't have a problem.
