    I’ve been looking at this dehydrator for a while. I sold one (not this nice tho’) at a yard sale before I became a real foodie…ah regrets!

      I went to a dehydration course and she used these, (great item) and ever since I’ve kicked myself for not buying one, so maybe I could win one!

    Is this only open to a certain country? I am in Australia and have drooled over one of those dehydrators for over 15 years. Now I have 4 children I would really find it useful.

    • Kristen
      August 1, 2013 | 11:19 pm

      Hi Jen! The fine print (found inside the Raffelcopter widget) says that winners outside the U.S. will get an Amazon gift card equal to what the prize is selling for on Amazon. If your country has a local Amazon (i.e. AmazonUK), I’ll buy the gift card from there. If not, I’ll buy the gift card. does ship a lot of inventory overseas, but it varies from product to product. So, I use the gift cards as a solution to what would otherwise be weird shipping hassles.

    I just found your site through a friend of mine… I’m exploring ways to eat healthier, and eliminate as much “junk” from our diets as possible. I have a toddler who loves dehydrated veggies but won’t eat any regular ones =.= I would be THRILLED to have something like this to use so I don’t have to spend the $8 per package of dehydrated veggies that I have been spending at the store each week. This would make life with my toddler soooo much easier.

  29. Carol Ann
    August 3, 2013 | 11:09 am

    It’s one of those things I’d love to have and would make good use of but money is tight, will be a long time before I could buy one!

    Just found your site from a search for sauerkraut and other fermented food recipes. I have read Lea’s Sauerkraut survivor journey, though in not as much detail as I think would benefit me now as I’m starting my own ferments…
    The link to win the Excalibur dehydrator is right up my alley – have been borrowing a friend’s dehydrator for nuts and other garden veggies for a couple of years and see that the timing is perfect for my own.

    Thanks for the great website and helpful perspectives.

    Food renegade! Love the name!

    In this crazy socio-political climate where words and intention are often designed to mislead and confuse, it is important to become more aware of the possibilities that come with taking greater control of your physical and spiritual landscape. A good food dehydrator is a good step in that direction. Good one, Kristen.

    Oh I really hope I win this!
    I want to make fruit roll ups and jerky and I want a yogurt maker too but if I win this dehydrator it’s big enough that I won’t need a separate one. :O
    Hooray for more counter space!!

  52. Shar Sanders

  67. Amy

    August 9, 2013 | 9:27 am

    Thanks so much for the chance to win one of these! I have an ancient, cheap-o dehydrator that I don’t use anymore because it lets off heat and is noisy, I’m sure I’d dehydrate more if I actually had a decent dehydrator :)

  76. Dena Montgomery
    August 9, 2013 | 12:25 pm

    Hoping this might break my “losing streak” on all the various giveaways I’ve been entering :) I’m a newbie in the real-food arena and have already pretty much broken the bank. Have been watching for a secondhand dehydrator but it seems like everyone else wants one too! My rental-apartment oven runs way too hot so “dehydrating” has been a series of disasters that would be funny if food weren’t so expensive. No crispy nuts for me. :(

  97. Missie

    Stumbled across this post when a friend suggested your Jalapeno Poppers with Serrano Sour Cream Dip to me. Interesting to use whipped whites for the batter. So glad I found this site as we are about 80% whole foods at our home. Lots of gardening and preserving here and butchering our own meat as we are able.
    Love, love, LOVE the Excalibur. I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to dehydrating.

    I have wanted an Excaliber for years and years! I just haven’t made it a priority buy, to win one would be sooo awesome! In the meantime I borrow a different brand from my mom and make all kinds of things from dried fruit to jerky!

  112. Rinn
    August 17, 2013 | 6:01 pm

    Oooh, so glad I came across this, today. Would honestly be a bit of a dream come true, winning one of these — due to my daughter and husband being on the Autism spectrum, we’ve been having to do a lot of modifications to our diet. But, living on a very strict fixed income, a decent dehydrator has always been pretty much out of the question :'(

    Here’s to hoping this one’s in the cards, for us ^_^

    I have just started to turn my life around by eating things as close to nature as possible. It is very interesting to me and I am excited. Using a dehydrator makes sense and if I don’t win this one, I will be getting one for myself soon! Glad to be a part of your website.

    Oh, I will love to win this dehydrator. I grow a lot of vegetables, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, etc. I have to canned them because there are more than I can eat… but that gardening is a hobby that I refuse to give up even with my disability, but canning take a toll on my leg for been standing so long. This dehydrator will be a blessing beside the space saver once the food is done. Thank you for the opportunity

    Thanx for the chance – very generous of you!! I’ve never used a dehydrator before – never say never. I specialize in Holistic Rejuvination and I just want you to know what a great job you are doing…keep up the great work. Love your web site.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win, Kristen! Love your site and from the reviews, this powerhouse of a dehydrator looks great. Not having to turn on the oven (even on low) in the Texas summer to make kale chips or jerky would be AWESOME! Keep up the stellar work, lady!

    I was just telling my husband how much I want one! We live in a dinky RV and rely on bottled propane for cooking so I either can use propane (expensive) or the sun. It would be so much more convenient and less expensive with a real dehydrator. I hope you pick me! Thanks!

  136. Lori Scott
    August 23, 2013 | 9:39 am

    So ready for this Fall and Winter and I’ve never had a dehydrator. This would come in so handy and I thank you for this opportunity!

  137. Amanda
    August 23, 2013 | 12:57 pm

    Oh gosh!
    My real food cooking wishlist is getting pricey. I’m afraid to even add it all up! I want a $500 blender, a $35 slicer, $40 slow cooker, $200 dehydrator, various silicone tools, and all that on top of the already higher cost of organic and grass-fed. I need a 2nd job!
    The dehydrator isn’t high enough on the list to be acquired any time soon…unless I can win it! That would be soo cool! I haven’t won anything since a church event doorprize 8 years ago!

    This is definitely on my wish list! Can’t wait to start making snacks and so much more with this beautiful machine! Thanks:)

    The oven that came with my rented apartment doesn’t go lower than 230F, which is why I really could use this for making crispy nuts, jerky and dried everything else! Thank you!

    Thx! I’ve never tried dehydrating food. I’ve read about the health benefits and anticipate all the tasty foods to come.

    I had a dehydrator years ago but didn’t use it much. Now we are trying to eat healthier and one of my daughters just informed me that her and her husband were very happy to inform us that they are expecting child #6. I believe this will help all of us to learn better food habits. I appreciate the opportunity to get one of these. Very nice of you no matter who receives it.

    I had one of these! In fact, I grew up with it. We had it, and used it a lot until our home burned in one of the Colorado forest fires. My kids loved when I made fruit leather! I loved drying all sorts of things for snacks and for storage. Thanks for the great website, and a chance to win a new Excalibur Dehydrator!
