The timing couldn't be better for this giveaway!
I own a 9-tray Excalibur Dehydrator myself and it is a favorite kitchen tool of mine. I use my dehydator for:
When I was saving up several years ago to buy a new dehydrator, I did a lot of looking around. After reading umpteen reviews and comparing features, I was convinced that if I was going to spend the money, the Excalibur was the way to go.
After using it for the past 3 years, I'm still convinced. I would buy another Excalibur in a heartbeat, except that I don't anticipate needing to anytime soon because mine is still in such great condition.
They are excellent quality, have a wide range of temperature settings, the large trays are square not round for better spacing, and you can remove and rearrange trays as desired. My only complaint is that it is a bit loud, but honestly, all dehydrators are loud. There isn't much getting around the noise. If it bothers you, use it somewhere like your laundry room instead of the kitchen.
Aside from offering high-quality kitchen tools like Excalibur dehydrators , various yogurt makers , grain mills , and fermentation crocks , Cultures for Health  is also my number one recommendation for purchasing starter cultures. Here's what they offer:
Making your own cultured and fermented foods is far easier than you might think, and you can save a tremendous amount of money on these healthful foods when you make them yourself .
Something I have not tried my hand at yet, but would like to try, is making cheese! They offer a cheese starter kit  and a wide variety of cheese starter cultures  as well (both hard and soft).
In other words, Cultures for Health is a valuable resource for anyone desiring to make delicious, cultured, bursting-with-enzymes-and-nutrition real foods!
But back to the giveaway...
Unlike the other giveaways this week , we're not using Rafflecopter for the dehydrator. Instead, it's a very quick and simple process of entering your name and email to sign up for the Cultures for Health newsletter, which will then enter you in the contest.
Once subscribed, you have you the option to unsubscribe at any time, although you probably won't want to, since the newsletter offers helpful tips and recipes for making cultured foods, and even special sales and discounts each month!

Giveaway ends Monday, June 18th, 2012 at 3pm PST.
