The Best Dehydrator?
I want to buy a dehydrator since I have been raw now for over a month and im loving it!
What is the best one?
So far the best one I know of is the Excalibur.
It's big enough to remove trays, has a temperature control, etc...

I'm going to order that today.
I'm THRILLED with my Excalibur!!! I'm so glad I got it. I was going to try to make do with my old Ronco...but it was way too hot. I love how the Excalibur works, it dries things fast and evenly without having to rotate trays at all. I love that the shelves remove for doing taller things (breads). I did a temp test on my excalibur, it was very close to the gauge and about 2-3 degrees cooler.
I bought the 5 tray Excalibur from Alissa. I haven't been disappointed with the size of it since I'm basically the only one eating raw. It took me a bit to get the hang of it but I'm onto it now.
I just got mine and I really like it, (the Excalibur) I need to test the temperature though with a thermometer as it doesn¬ít seem to be reading the right degree??
I was very impressed with this forum and the answers to sooo many questions. I to have a question, I have just started going raw 100% (3 days now).
And yep, I too experienced bad headaches, stomach pains, diahrea (cant spell) and almost threw up.....luckily it didn't last long (only a couple of days). I'm starting to feel good and am determined to eat this way, this is not a diet but a new way of living and therefore I want to purchase the Excalibur Dehydrator but was worried that teflon is a toxin, you see I have thrown out my microwave many years ago due to radiation leaks etc and my pots are stainless steel and bowls are either wooden or glass, I don't have anthing plastic and will never use anything plastic becasue they are unsafe.
Can someone please tell me if the dehydrator is made from safe products ?
Gees I hope Iam making sense......I type as Im thinking.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance
I'm not sure about the dehydrator Q but wanted to welcome you to the boards and to the wonderful world of Raw food, you'll find many supportive and infomitive people here :)
can anyone tell me if the dehydrator is safe as far as the material it is made of.
Thank you so much for the nice welcome. I actually posted my question earlier today and I thought I had bookmarked this forum but it didnt work, then I spent the rest of the day trying to backtrack all the sites I had visited.
Finally, I found you....yayyyy
This forum is great, you guys are wonderful and like I said before full of great information, inspirationa and motivation.
I look forward to being here more often.
Nice to have you here. :)
I am not sure about the dehydrator question, don't have one yet but maybe Alissa can answer this question for you.
I too wonder about the teflon/teflex sheets. Anyone have an answer?
