Excalibur 3948 dehydrator brings the 3900 series dehydrator into the
computer-controlled digital age.
The new 3948
model features a new all-digital
controller that offers many benefits over the non-digital
More accurate thermostat - the new digital thermostat is
more precise than non-digital
Digital Shut-Off Timer - lets you set it and
forget it. Timer will automatically turn off dehydrator when the set time is
Temperature - speeds up the
drying process. After loading food onto the trays, set the dehydrator at
a higher temperature for a specified period of time; and then set the
dehydrator at a lower temperature for a specified period of time. The
unit automatically adjusts after the 1st setting and turns off when the
2nd setting is complete.
Wide Temperature Range - the new
digital model has the widest temperature range of all Excalibur
dehydrators. It can be set as low as 95 degrees F. (other models
have a 105 minimum temperature) The temperature range is low
enough to preserve active enzymes in fruits and vegetables and this
model is recommended for people into raw and living food lifestyle. The
maximum temperature is high enough (165 degrees F) to meet safety standards
for dehydrating meat for jerky.
new 3948 model also includes the new clear door that allows you to
monitor the dehydration process without removing the door panel.
The Parallexx design, with a temperature controlled, fan forced, horizontal drying system
mounted in the rear is exclusive to the 3000 Series. The same features found in
Excalibur's USDA approved $6500.00 commercial model...in an affordable home unit.
With over 20 years of manufacturing excellence, the Excalibur Food Dehydrator sets the industry
standard for design, quality, and dependability.
All-New 3948 dehydrator has the following upgrades over the 2000 series:
UPGRADED MOTOR - Last 20+ years of continuous
24 hour per day, every day use due to its use of higher quality components, more copper
and tighter motor windings versus 2900 Economy Series
UPGRADED DIGITAL THERMOSTAT -
more precise and will last 5 times as
long as 2900 Economy series
TIMER - will run the
dehydrator for up to 48 hours and then automatically turn the
TWO TIME/TWO TEMPERATURE -
save time when dehydrating high water content foods.
UPGRADED HEATING ELEMENT - made of a
new metal formulation that is designed to last longer
UPGRADED PLASTICS - Case made of Noryl and
trays made of Food Grade Polypropylene No 5
UPGRADED WARRANTY - 10 Year Factory Warranty
Why the Excalibur Dehydrator
Excalibur Offers the Turbo Charged Parallexx Drying System. Millions have
rediscovered the benefits of food dehydration. Healthy, nutritious, and tasty food at a
huge savings. Now Excalibur makes drying easy. For centuries food has been dried in the
sun or open air - a lengthy, messy and difficult process inviting contamination and
spoilage. With the introduction of electric dehydrators the drying process was improved.
But most manufacturers offered round stackable models with a heating unit in the bottom.
Excalibur pioneered a rear-mounted equipment package allowing horizontal or parallel air
flow...The Parallexx System.

What is a Premiflexx non stick
non-stick sheets are solid sheets, unlike the mesh sheets that are included with the
dehydrator. They are washable and re-useable.
They are used for dehydrating liquids (such as blended
fruits- to make fruit roll-ups) or really sticky/gooey items that would
normally drip through the mesh sheets that are included with the dehydrator.
They are also required for making THIN sprouted essene breads and crackers. Order Premiflexx sheets separately here.

check drying or add more food.
Almost unbreakable and FDA approved polycarbonate trays.

Controlled environment for a wide variety of uses, i.e. making
fruit roll-ups, trail mixes and drying flower arrangements, herbs, art and crafts, photos.
How Parallexx Works
The fan, heating element, and adjustable thermostat are mounted
in the rear. Cool air is drawn in the back, heated up, and distributed evenly across
each tray. During the dehydration process, warm air removes moisture from foods and
is pushed out the front of the machine.
Excalibur Parallexx System Advantages:
Complete drying system in rear. (includes thermostat and fan)
Easy to clean... Spills fall on seamless bottom.
Horizontal drying provides even drying, eliminating tray
rotations. Fast drying...
Adjustable thermostat allows perfect drying every time.
Square design increases drying area "25%" with no
holes in center of tray.
Versatile... Trays can be removed to expand drying chamber.
Normal drips fall on the electrical controls beneath the food.
This can cause electrical problems as well as being very difficult to clean.
The more trays that are added, the further the food is away from the heat, dramatically
increasing the drying time, and requiring frequent tray rotation day and night to prevent
spoilage. Who wants to "BABYSIT" THEIR DEHYDRATOR?!!
Standard Dehydrator Disadvantages:
Round Stackable Units Heating unit in bottom. (many without
fan or thermostat)
Hard to clean... Spills fall directly on electric components.
Vertical drying requires tray rotation as trays closest to
heat source dry first.
Slow drying...Units without fan or thermostat may spoil food
or not dry at all.
Round design cuts off corners and has holes in center,
reducing usable drying area.
Non-adjustable stackable design restricts size of drying
Any dehydrator will dry food.
Excalibur dries BETTER, FASTER & SAFER thanks to HYPERWAVE
Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat causing case
hardening, a dry surface with moisture trapped inside - a perfect environment for
bacteria growth. Excaliburs Adjustable Thermostat lets you take advantage of
Hyperwave Fluctuation (changing heat through the drying cycle) for faster, better, safer
dried foods. As the temperature fluctuates up the surface moisture evaporates. Then as the
temperature fluctuates down the inner moisture moves to the drier surface. The food
temperature stays LOW enough to keep the enzymes active, and the air temperature gets high
enough to dry food fast, overcoming bacteria growth and spoilage. Perfect for raw and
