Letter Re: Dehydrator Screens


I’m not sure how I came across SurvivalBlog, but I’ve been reading it for a while now and really like it. I’m glad to see someone “telling it like it is”.

Anyway, the post about dehydrator screens caught my eye, ’cause I’ve been thinking about that very topic lately. And wouldn’t you know it, I got my dehydrator from Aldi (my default grocery store) and it has (just as I wanted) round trays. Yesterday, I went into Dollar Tree (another favorite) for something entirely unrelated and came across some splatter guards for skillets. (I should probably get one for my cast iron skillet for the next time I make Maryland Fried Chicken.) The inspiration hit. I grabbed a tape measure and measured one. When I got home, I measured the trays on my dehydrator. The screen is ~1″ smaller than the tray. The next time I’m at Dollar Tree, I’ll pick up five of them. -The Old Sarge
