Default I went to look at excaliburdehydrator.com for new recipes and ideas...

...and that was a yuge mistake. Our 3926T is only about eight years old with the ten year warranty, but look at this beauty. 16 sq ft, 99-hour timer, dual zone, stainless everywhere. Do want!

Deal!

Seriously, I wish I hadn't looked. I love our Excalibur and I'm glad we spent the money back then, but this new one is so awesome. I see they're still selling refurbed 8-year-old units for $300.

Yeah, but if you don't like it you've got to throw it in to the lady in the lake.

I got a 3900 a couple years ago for $130 (I see they are going for $180 - $250 now) and I love it. I can't imagine spending a grand to get something that is basically functionally the same? I mean, yeah, it has a timer and glass doors and it's made out of stainless, but does it do more, faster, or better? It doesn't seem like it. Sure it's 10 trays instead of 9, so I expect it does a little more, but not enough to make me want to spend a grand! Honestly if I was going to spend a grand on that I would just spring for the small freeze dryers that run $1,800 - $2,800 (I just saw that they are going to be running a Black Friday Sale with $700 off too!).

If there are enough people doing this we should start a thread with recipes. I make a dehydrated vegetarian stew, I store it in vacuum sealed quart mason jars, then I pressure can stew meat in pint jars, when I'm ready to eat I dump both jars into a crock pot and cook through the day - when I come home I have beef stew waiting!

This works just fine for my beef jerky.



And it didn't cost $1000, can also bake and broil.
