View Full Version : Dehydrator Question
05-12-2006, 07:57 AM
I wanted to make flax crackers and I was just wondering if I can use my dehydrator without teflex sheets?
I've never used a dehydrator before so I'm not sure.
Thanks in advance!

You can do it with wax paper, but it is kind of frustrating because it sticks to the crackers and you have a hard time not breaking them all up. But I did do that before I got my teflex sheets. I do recommend getting some teflex sheets just because it makes things so much easier.

Where can I buy them locally?

I use unbleached parchment paper with great success!
I've tried waxed paper in the past, and I agree, it can be cumbersome to use. But the unbleached parchment is great!
I got my Excalibur dehydrator used, so I don't have and never had any teflex sheets to compare the performance...been using the parchment paper instead. I'm not sure if teflex sheets are sold anywhere locally...at least I've not seen it anywhere as of yet.

I use afghan fabric! :) I don;t have the mesh or flat tray so I just place fabric on the trays and lay down the flax mixture, they came out just perfect! The fabric I use is new though, I cut them in rectangles then place 3 long pieces in each tray.

I too have had problems with using the wax paper - I found that if I thickened say my sweet recipe of sweet flax seed cracker when I put them in the dryer they would only drip about 1/8 to 1/4 inch - which is doable for me. I got this link from Rawkinlocs:
In here you can buy different items for your differnet styles of dryers. Just sorta surf around until you find want you want or what style you have. :D
