Summary: I've used my Excaliber dehydrator to do some 'raw cooking'. It does take some getting used to with the time it takes to prepare 'raw meals', but that would be the case with any dehydrator. I need to work at my planning skills. Works great with dehydrating vegetables... I am looking forward to making my own dried fruits and leather as local fruit comes into season.
Summary: I long ago accepted that if I am going to buy a kitchen appliance, I may as well start with the biggest & best, because sooner or later I will want bigger & stronger, and wanna-be's don't cut it. My sister-in-law bought a cheaper dehydrator (big box store type) "just to see" if she'd like it. She didn't! It took too long... it couldn't process enough food at once to justify the time spent.... so she gave it away.
It was delivered cracked. Right side was cracked deeply totally.

Summary: but I found this this week just before I would use it. terrible!!!!!!!! It would be too late because it was delivered a few weeks ago. I regret I should look carefully and thouroughly when I got this. I never had this kind of bad feeling with amazon.
Summary: We've had this product now for just about a month, and we've made 3 whole batches of Strawberry Leathers. Two batches of Raspberry leathers, and some failed attempts from being too hurried to look up a recipe. We've done dried apple rings, and we're even looking to do apple cinnamon chips. I will be attempting Kale chips and Tofu Jerky.
Summary: We love our Excalibur and splurged for the integrated timer. This thing is on almost all the time and we don't have to worry about it. We simply set the time and it does the rest. A must have if you plan to use it a lot!
Summary: Je ne regrette pas d'avoir pris avec une minuterie car pendant la nuit ou si je suis au travail, l'appareil s'arrête automatiquement donc pas de "surdésydratation". Si je compare à d'autres produits déjà acheté (ex: Vitamix), je suis très déçu du livre d'instruction accompagnant l'appareil car il donne très peu d'info. Il me semble qu'un livre de recettes/ trucs culinaires sur la désydratation auraient été appropriés et appréciés. Il est moins bruyant que j'aurais cru.
