Win This Dehydrator!

By: Victoria Phillips

Dehydrated fruits and vegetables aren't just for outdoors-y types going on a camping trip. Apples, pears, bell peppers, tomatoes—you name it—can be turned into healthy, portable snacks for anyone. Instead of always turning to store-bought versions, enjoy ones you make at home with the Excalibur Dehydrator. The five-tray machine provides 8 square feet of space to dry many different foods—even meat.

You can buy your own Excalibur Dehydrator or enter in the comments for a chance to win one. Just let us know, in the comments, what you're most excited to dehydrate first. The contest starts at 10:00 a.m. EST today, and ends on Friday, October 18 at 5 p.m. EST.

We're giving away one Excalibur Dehydrator to one randomly-selected commenter. You must include your email address in the "Email" field when submitting your comment so we can communicate with you if you're a winner.

You may only comment once to be considered and you don’t have to purchase anything to win; a purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Odds depend on total number of entries. Void where prohibited. Only open to legal residents of 50 U.S. states, D.C. or Puerto Rico, and you must be at least 18 to win. For the first day of the giveaway, all entries (answers) must be entered between 10:00 a.m. EST on October 16 and 5 p.m. EST on October 18, 2013. Subject to full official rules. By leaving a comment on the blog, you acknowledge your acceptance to the Official Rules. ARV of each prize: $249.95. Sponsor: Scripps Networks, LLC, d/b/a Food Network, 9721 Sherrill Blvd, Knoxville, TN 37932.

So tell us, what are you most excited to dehydrate first? Fruits? Veggies? Meat?
