I bought the smallest Excaliber (ED-2400) last summer and I love it! I chose it over the L'eqip because I thought the slide out tray design was more convenient (and it's $45 less). I make crackers with it weekly and the open slide design makes flipping them over very easy (I don't even have to turn off the machine). It has very even heating and I'm totally happy with the Excaliber but I haven't personally tried the l'equip one
I do have a l'equip juicer (the visor) and it's good but does have some design flaws. I don't know if this is true of all of thier products.
