Very pleased 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.

They are great Silicone Drying Mats 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.

Blueberry Savers! 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!

No melting into racks! 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.
Sahara mats I absolutely love everything about the Sahara Dehydrator including the mats. I have owned many different dehydrators in my life and by far this is the most efficient. The mats are the perfect size and are strong enough to hold my fruit for the fruit leather that I made for the Grand children. Love the whole unit

Work great Absolutely nothing wrong with these mats. They are a bit smaller than the wire racks, so they fit easily without fussing and allow airflow up the sides. Easy to clean. I store them in the zippered case with the racks. Last used to dry sliced green onions.

Drying mats Love the drying mats. Holds the items secure so they move around. Also easy cleaning. I have very hot water so sll I need to do is rinse. Thank you!
Sahara Silicone drying mats I love these mats for drying the grains that I sprout for making bread. They are also great for drying my fruit leather.

These mats are awesome! When drying smaller pieces of veggies and fruit along with tomatoes, these mats are perfect! Nothing sticks to them nor falls through the racks.

Wish we bought more. It’s great and so useful with the dehydrator. Great to use if you want to make fruit leather. Only warning is that if you do leave wet fruit (that easily stain) on the mat, it does stain. So get it dried as soon as possible!

Silicone mats I can’t give you a review because I haven’t had a chance to use my Brod & Taylor silicone mats.
