This month I’m giving away an Excalibur 9-Tray Dehydrator — a $219 Value!

Excalibur 9-Tray Dehydrator — $219 Value

I asked you all on Facebook what you wanted to win. You voted and the Excalibur 9-Tray Dehydrator came out on top.

I use my Excalibur dehydrator for all kinds of things: drying soaked nuts and seeds, proofing bread, preserving fruit and veggies, making granola, beef jerky, and yogurt.

If you don’t have a dehydrator, this is the one you want! It’s the best and biggest model out there. NINE trays give you more room to do bigger batches of stuff!

Winning is Fun!

Giving away something every month gives more of my readers a chance to win more stuff.

I pay for these prizes myself. I choose them, based on your votes on Facebook, and I have them shipped direct to your door.

What’s the catch? Just one: sign up for my newsletter. In order to be eligible for the monthly prize drawings, you must be subscribed to my monthly newsletter. (Note: If you are not subscribed to my monthly newsletter when the winner is chosen, you will not be eligible to win.) As they say, you have to be in it to win it!

How to Enter to Win

If you want to enter to win, here’s what you have to do:

1. Click this link: Excalibur 9-Tray Dehydrator

2. Then use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.

3. Make sure you are signed up for my newsletter (enter your email address below). That entry is mandatory.

4. You can get a maximum of 5 extra entries for signing up for my email updates (enter email address below), following me on Facebook, following me on Pinterest, following me on Google+, and following me on Instagram.

5. You can get 10 extra entries — if you pin this on Pinterest! (See the rafflecopter widget for details.)

6. You can also get up to 10 extra entries for each friend you refer. (See the rafflecopter widget for details.)

I tried twice to post this give away to Pinterest but it would not work :(

Bobbi April 2, 2013 at 7:24 PM

You SERIOUSLY have the BEST giveaways!

For some reason the Pinterest entry gets me every month. {giggle} It wont pin for me because it can’t “fetch” a picture. :(

Ann April 2, 2013 at 7:29 PM

Just listened to about 3 hours of youtube videos on dehydrating and am so excited to start! What a great and timely giveaway!

evonne April 2, 2013 at 7:40 PM

i pinned the blog post since it said it couldn’t fetch the pic… hope that was okay?? i was assuming it was what should have been pinned anyway…

Judy H April 2, 2013 at 7:41 PM

I don`t see the rafflecoper…… :(
~Judy in MI~

Nice giveaway…….

Flo April 2, 2013 at 7:44 PM

Now I’ll just sit back and wait to win! :-) Thanks for the fun, Ann Marie

Heather April 2, 2013 at 7:49 PM

Awesome give away;Thank you!
This pinned, (photo and all) fine for me.

kim April 2, 2013 at 8:13 PM

The pin wasn’t wanting to work for me…I had to do a little finagling but I was finally able to post a picture of the dehydrator. I hope that’s what was supposed to post. I had to guess because all I could see when I followed the pin link was a blue box w a question mark. I created a new board through the link but the picture wouldn’t show up automatically. I went to the board on my account directly and pinned a picture from there..hopefully that will be right :) LOVE this dehydrator so it’s totally worth the effort! This is an amazing give-away!

Sharon Lee April 2, 2013 at 8:13 PM

Lovely giveaway – whoever wins will be one lucky duck!! Thanks for the chance!

Tara G April 2, 2013 at 8:17 PM

I also had issues using the “pin it” section on rafflecopter, so I pinned the blog post. Thank you so much for this fantastic giveaway!

Soccy April 2, 2013 at 9:03 PM

Thanks for the giveaway. I believe I’m subscribed to both newsletter and blog posts, but not 100% sure on the feedburner. Will I get duplicate notifications if I sign up again?

Jeri April 2, 2013 at 9:06 PM

I had problems too but it works if you use your Pin It button from your bookmarks bar and pin the image yourself. Then you can copy/paste the link.

susan April 2, 2013 at 9:49 PM

thanks for the wonderful giveaway and all the expert advice on nutrition, etc.

Lisa April 2, 2013 at 9:57 PM


Riki Juster April 2, 2013 at 10:04 PM

Made all the entries I could!

Terry Schultz April 3, 2013 at 12:05 AM

I don’t see a Rafflecopter widget either. Have been signed up for your newsletter for awhile now so of course it won’t let me sign up again. Nice giveaway though.

Gay Hullar April 3, 2013 at 12:16 AM

What an awesome giveaway! Thank you!!!!

Leanne Overlander April 3, 2013 at 4:48 AM

I also could not pin it from with in raffle copter. I used my pin it widget and the picture it chose was the dehydrator with the giveaway on it. I hope this count as 1 vote, because I have had this on my wish list for a long time.
Thanks for offering such great giveaways!

Carmen April 3, 2013 at 5:26 AM

Awesome gift!
Good luck to everyone :)

Lel April 3, 2013 at 5:28 AM

I thought I was the only one having problems but I don’t see a Rafflecopter widget either.

Sure would like to win one of these. I have been contemplating buying one of these but have not done it yet so what a surprise it would be to win one.

Julie April 3, 2013 at 6:05 AM

What a great giveaway!

Maria April 3, 2013 at 7:18 AM

I am 72 years young and do not do social media, but have subscribed to your newsletter for several years. I have wanted a dehydrator for many years and not able to afford one. Would love
to win this great appliance!

Carrie April 3, 2013 at 7:24 AM

Me either….help?

Youthful One April 3, 2013 at 8:22 AM

Coming to echo a few others:
The ‘pin it’ image is not available/not working. I used my Pin It button from my browser to pin the image of the Excalibur. However, some folks may not know how to do that, or may find that confusing. :)

FANTASTIC giveaway!
Sure hope I win!

Jen April 3, 2013 at 8:49 AM

This has been on my wish list for a long time! Crossing my fingers :)

Rachel April 3, 2013 at 9:43 AM

This is next in my transition process. Have a spot already set aside!!!

Thank you for all your work on the Health Summit.

I can’t help blabbing to people about it–forget what it was like BEFORE I woke up to Traditional Food.

Have to remember Bill Murray and baby steps….

Kim V April 3, 2013 at 11:27 AM

What a fun thing to giveaway…. Thank you !! :)

Ali April 3, 2013 at 12:06 PM

The pin works if you pin it from your bookmarks and add the board URL to the widget thing. I would love to win this, I was just talking about how I wanted to get one.

Carolyn April 3, 2013 at 12:54 PM

Hi –
I don’t see the widget anywhere on the page and I have tried on different days. Also, I have been able to use them on other people’s pages. Any thoughts?
Thank you!

Allison April 3, 2013 at 1:10 PM

Not sophisticated with social media, but feeling like a complete idiot right now — can’t find whatever a rafflecopter is anywhere on this page. Also, am I automatically entered if I am already subscribed to your newsletter?

So this dehydrator would seriously change my life… but until I win (fingers crossed!), can anyone give suggestions on how to make yogurt using my old, dilapidated, round stack-up dehydrator (no side walls, just circle trays and heat blowing up from the bottom) ?

Lel April 4, 2013 at 11:02 AM

Thanks Ann Marie. I tried with Firefox and it worked fine.

Kim O. April 4, 2013 at 2:55 PM

Oooh…tops on my wishlist. Thanks for the chance to win! I pinned the pic of the dehydrator…hope that is okay!!

This would be such a blessing. We are a military family and this would help me make wonderful snacks to send with my husband when he is in the field training for weeks.

Tammy April 9, 2013 at 5:59 PM

I hope this is open to Canadian residents as well! I desperately would love one of these…it would make snack time so much easier with children who have a multitude of food sensitivities!
