View Full Version : Ronco (round, cheapie) dehydrator question
10-20-2009, 10:23 AM
let's say i want to make a bread, cracker, or wrap, what do i spread the batter on?
i tried wax paper and the batter stuck horribly. it's possible i did not dry the batter long enough before trying to separate it from the wax paper -- but i feared it was just going to get more stuck.
any ideas? thanks!

Try saran wrap, I've found it works just fine.

I was at a raw food potluck the other night, and the hostess there bought the teflex sheets from Excalibur, and then cut them round to fit her dehydrator. I'm going to try the same thing.

through. It worked out okay.

I have a Ronco, too, and have had the same question- however, I thought parchment and wax paper were the same. And what does "worked out ok" mean- you don't sound too enthusiastic! Maybe the round inserts can be ordered seperately online? Not sure, as I haven't looked into it.

Parchment paper is silicone treated. It does not melt with the heat of the dryer like the wax on the wax paper will.

I believe you can buy the silicon sheets that fit the American Harvester (Nesco) brand dehydrator and they will fit the Ronco...

Thanks all! Will try to find the silicon insert things as that seems like it would work best. i bought the Ronco as a test to see if i really needed an Excalibur and due to the machines seeming inferiority, the test is not working...

If I am making something gooey I use parchment paper and it works just fine. I take things off the paper after they firm up a little. I have also used the plastic insert that comes with the Ronco that they recommend for fruit leathers.
I am quite happy with my Ronco and see no need to upgrade.
