The Excalibur 2900 is large dehydrator. It’s a shelf-type unit that comes with 9 trays that slide into the main box from the front. The 2900 has a rear-mounted fan that blows heated air horizontally across the trays from the back to the front.

Each tray measures 15” x 15”, providing 1.7 sq ft of drying area per tray. With 9 trays total, the 2900 provides a maximum drying area of 15 sq ft. The Excalibur 2900 has a heavy duty 7” fan.

The case of the Excalibur 2900 is light-blocking ABS plastic, which protects nutrients in the food while it is being dried. Next to the temperature control knob is a printed guide listing recommended temperature settings. The 2900 is made by Excalibur in Sacramento, California. It does not have a built-in timer.
The Excalibur 2900 is 22 inches wide, 19 inches deep, and 12.5 inches tall. It weights 22 lbs.
