    A friend of mine is selling her excaliber 9 tray for $150 or best offer. Is this a good price? I don't know anything about them. Am slightly interested since I love beef jerky and have thought of making some.

    Excaliber is the best. I think mine ran closer to $300.

    They are so large they can cost $25-30 just to ship. That seems like a fair price if it is in nice shape. It is a plus if it has a built-in timer as those models are more expensive.

    JUMP ALL OVER THAT!!! I have the Excalibur 3900 and I love it. If it has the solid sheets, you can puree fruit and make your own fruit roll up snacks.
    YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!! Go get it NOW! :weee

    Bay, I think I'll pass. I'm trying not to have so many gadgets and I really don't think I would use it that much. By the way, the picture she posted looked like the sheets were not smooth but with rigids.

    Go for it @Carol Dee!!!!!
    A friend gave me a dehydrator this past fall (not Excalibur, one of the round ones...?) I haven't used it yet but am excited to start.

    It depends on how many tray the dehydrator has and a couple other things. They can sometimes be found for under $100 on Ebay with free shipping.
    The one we have, not a Excalibur, was picked up at a garage sale for a few dollars.

    If you already have a dehydrator that has gotten too small, then the proper model Excalibur would be a good idea.
