    Excalibur is the top one that all the raw books recommend. Mine is arriving via FedEx in 2 days. The price range is from $35 for a Walmart (Nesco) one, up to nearly $300 for the 9-tray Excalibur with timer and 9 ParaFlexx sheets. The cheaper ones don’t have a temperature setting, so they “cook” the food at too high a temperature to retain the enzymes. However, I started with a cheap one as a “test.” They’re at Walmart or

  • thanks! I will be sure to look into buying one! _

  • Some camping and outdoor supply stores also sell dehydrators. I found a 9 tray Excalibur at Cabelas in addition to a good hatchet for coconuts.

  • I bought a dehydrator from walmart cause i cannot afford another one right now. It is a 5 tray nesco and it does not have a tempature setting so do you recommend not leaving the foods in there too long?
