For months I have been looking online, in print catalogs, and in a few stores, for a food dehydrator that does not use plastic in the parts that will
be in contact with the food. I came up with nothing! Help!
I thought about placing a sheet of parchment paper (a little pricey but non-toxic) on the working surface where the food will sit, but wouldn't a
sheet of paper block the air flow that is key to drying the food? If yes, that's a "gotcha" to the idea of using a paper liner.
A non-electric dehydrator would be preferable, but I will buy an electrically operated dehydrator if I can find one without plastic on the drying
surface. Up to a point, I'm willing to pay more for the quality of dehydrator that I need. Thanks very much in advance for any suggestions!
PS: I am attaching a page from the Excalibur Company explaining why the polypropylene in their dehydrator is better than stainless steel. What do
you think of their explanation? Here's link:
