Sous Vide Tools has announced the launch of the Excalibur 10 Tray Dehydrator, which it boldly claims is the ‘king of the dehydrators’.

According to the company, the unit is ideal for creating tomato seasoning or dehydrating chicken jerky and offers 16 square feet of drying area.

Sous Vide said the SUS-304 stainless steel unit features two temperature settings for two timer periods, up to a total of 99 hours, allowing for a high start-up temperature to comply with food safety, and switching to a lower temperature at the second stage of drying to preserve the original flavour and nutrition without cooking.

It added that drying without tray rotation means that the user can set the Excalibur 10 tray and forget about it, knowing that the results will be consistent every time. Toughened glass doors allow the chef to check on progress without opening, retaining the heat.

Other features include an adjustable thermostat 35 – 74°C (95-165°F); a digital control and display panel; a quiet 6.5” fan motor; and a removable drip tray for easy cleaning.
