How do I clean a food dehydrator tray?

LindaSCynthia H


Does anyone have an idea of how to easily clean the trays in a food dehydrater? I made beef jerky in them and let them soak overnight in ammonia water and dawn soap, still hard to scrub even with a scrub brush or toothbrush.

    Soak in epsom salts, vinegar and water.

    I put mine in the dishwasher on the top rack. They always come clean. We make jerky all the time! No problems getting the trays clean.

    If you have a dishwasher, it will get them clean.

    Spray with some Pam like oil agent before use and the food will not stick or will minimize the amount stuck depending on what food you are dehydrating.

    Try putting parchment paper down on the tray first. Nothing sticks. My husband and I do this when we dehydrate our jerky. My trays are round so I just lay it best I can. I don't stress about it being perfect. Works great. Good luck

    No holes necessary
