Readers–do I have a treat for you today!

I've joined with a bunch of other bloggers to offer to you a giveaway of one of my all-time-favorite kitchen tools.

The Excalibur Dehydrator!

And not just any Excalibur Dehydrator–

The biggest model (the 9 tray, Excalibur 3900) loaded with 9 Paraflexx Drying Sheets and a Dehydrating book as well.

If you've poked around my blog, you know how much I use my dehydrator.

In fact, right after I finish this post I've got:

– 5 lbs of brazil nuts
– 5 cups of soaked rolled oats
– about 28 cups of soaked buckwheat

waiting to go into this fabulous machine.

Yes, you can fit about 38 cups of nuts / seeds / grains into the 9-tray Excalibur.

That's one reason why I love it.

Why I LOVE my Excalibur Dehydrator

– Durable

This machine has a 5 year warranty and is made with very solid parts. I've had mine for about 10 years now and it's still going strong. And believe me–I use it A LOT!

– Roomy

As I said above, you can fit about 38 cups of nuts / seeds / grains in this machine.  If you like to do things in bulk (like I do) then this machine is for you.

– Even Drying

You won't get moldy apples on the bottom and overly dry ones on the top with this machine.  The fan circulates the air throughout to ensure even drying.

– Saves Money

I can buy in bulk and dry a bunch of produce at one time, which saves our family a TON of money.  This year we got about 200 pounds of free apples that I turned into leather and dried apples. I wouldn't have been able to do that with a small dehydrator.  For more on how the dehydrator saves us money, read this post.

Boost Nutrition

With a dehydrator, you can soak and dry your nuts and seeds, as well as make things like sprouted cereals, quickly and easily.  That's what I am going to do with my soaked buckwheat.  I hope to make this fabulous Gourmet Buckwheat Granola.  For more on how the dehydrator can boost nutrition, read this.

Saves Time and Space

Drying is quicker than canning. And the food takes up a lot less space. For more on how the dehydrator saves time and space, read this post.

A Few More Things:

1.  Please note that you do need to Follow ALL of the Pinterest Boards of the bloggers in order to have your entry count. That just means that you need to click on the Red “Follow All” button once you get to their Pinterest page.

2.  And also, in case you don't win, I offer to everyone the Best Deal on Excalibur Dehydrator on the internet.

If you find another price lower from an authorized dealer, I will do my best to match it.

You can get more details about that here.

3. This has nothing to do with the giveaway, but if you would like to stay connected, please hop over to Google+, where I am sharing my posts plus those of others.

Facebook has made it so I need to pay about $600 to reach my fans, and I can't afford that.  So while I will still do what I can on Facebook, I am needing to do other things.

I'm on Google+ as myself and as Whole New Mom. You can of course, follow both. It's been a lot of fun over there.

    Speak Your Mind


  1. I could really use one of these because the electricity goes off during the winter and we end up having to through out food just about every winter. Thank you.

  2. I would love to win this, I would dry all the food that won’t fit in my freezer.

  3. We bought a farm last year. Along with all of the animals we are raising, I plan on trying a garden again this year ( last year I quit breathing and was air evacuated to a neighboring city where I lost 5 days). With any luck, this year will be much better! If it is… I plan on learning how to can and dehydrate lots of things! I can’t wait!

  4. My old one died, but I used to dry fruit and I loved to dry cherry tomatoes, ummm so good in so many things, Also like to make fruit leather and various sprouted uncooked products, like bread, snack bars, A dryer is quite useful in many, many ways.

  5. Marina Foreman says:

    I was just thinking this morning how a dehydrator would help me get a great start to living healthy. Dry fruit is my new candy!

  6. Adrienne Guarro says:

    I would dry the tomatoes and hot peppers that we grow in our garden.

  7. Lorinda Thompson says:

    I’ve recently changed my diet. Its been pretty easy for me but a little harder for my kids. I would LOVE an Excalibur! It would make this transition SO much easier and I could make healthy snacks for my kids, to make it easier on them! I’ve seen so many things you can do with one of these amazing dehydrators!! I can’t wait to get it!

  8. Been wanting an Excalibur for some time now – would round off my home preserving

  9. I have an OLD about to quit, cheap one I found at a yard sale that years ago. I have literally loved it to (almost) death. I have been wanting an Excalibur for a while but have told myself I will spend the money after my other quits on me. Even then I’m sure that I will slap some electrical tape on it and make it work again. LOL Thank you for the chance to win one!

  10. Pretty much everything that can be dehydrated including what I grow in my garden! 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity! 🙂

  11. I’d use it for tons of things!! Jerky, dried fruit, etc., etc.

  12. This has been on our homestead *wish* list for many, many years! Would love to give a loving home 🙂

  13. This dehydrator would be a work horse in my house. I would make jerky when my boys shoot deer, dry fruit and try my hand at making Stevia by growing and dehydrating the actual plant so I don’t have to buy the very processed white stuff from the store. Has anyone else done this?

  14. I would use it to make fruit leather and learn to make a ton of other things! Great giveaway!

  15. Jerky, dehydrated liver (for taking like a pill), fruit roll ups, and of course, fruit for snacking. Then I’d experiment with all the other uses!

  16. Thanks! I am so excited for this chance to better my family’s nutrition!!!

  17. Debbie Bishop says:

    This would be a godsend! My daughters, their families, and I have all been growing our own food in the last couple of years. We do a lot of canning but have been experimenting with dehydrating and this would be so also. Plus it works for so many things you can’t can. Would save room in my freezer as well!
