i am planning to make some sprouted grain bread. but my cheap old dehydrator has plastic circular shelves.

i was wondering how you get round this. perhaps using parchment paper or what ever it's called, grease proof paper?

the machine i use is like this one http://www.lakeland.co.uk/14210/My-Kitchen-Food-Dehydrator

what will you be dehydrating?

It looks like those shelves are rather shallow to try to dry bread, although I'm looking at the picture rather than the device...  If you use paper on the racks, no air will flow through the trays, so I don't know if it will work at all.

I would probably put it on a sheet pan and put it in the oven.

I got an Excalibur that had silicone sheets similar to this...http://www.lakeland.co.uk/16435/Silicone-Baking-Flexi-Sheet
I have made "crackers" from soaked grains. Make them thinner than sliced bread and it should help. You will need to check them, but the edges pulling away as they shrink is a sign they are getting closer. It's up to about 8 hrs or more for me. Search web for recipes. Others have done this...  8)

that's the sort of thing i want to make crackers from sprouted blended grain. if the silicone works then the paper might work too?
