These came with my Sahara dehydrator, and I like them. They are very flexible, very easy to clean and easy to store with the dehydrator. Just what is needed in a flexible mat.
The Silicone Mats work great. They were used on the first use of the dehydrator; holding my rinsed/washed soaked chickpeas in place. The chickpeas would have fell through the chrome wire rack upon drying because the chickpeas/Garbanzo beans shrink upon drying. I am glad to have those Silicone Drying Mats can't wait to use them again in the coming days.
I used the silicone drying mats when I dried some of our blueberries and they worked perfectly. I wasn’t sure at first how adding that layer to the racks would affect the process, but the blueberries dried without any problem. The mats cleaned up easily and I can store them in the same case in which the metal racks are stored. Perfect!
My first attempt at making liver and the pieces molded around the wire racks making removal a chore. I used the mats my next attempt for the first few hours then transferred the liver directly onto the racks and they finished beautifully and there was absolutely no sticking to the racks! The mats are a must.
