Dehydrator Sheets - ParaFlexx Ultra Silicone Non-Stick Solid Drying Sheet - for Excalibur Dehydrators
An excellent alternative to these sheets are the AKELA Silicone sheets. They are the exact size to fit Excalibur units, and in addition, they are an excellent product of superior quality, and being pure silicone rather than a silicone coating over a fibreglass mat (as is the Excalibur sheet), they are totally inert. It has been noted that Silicone is a far healthier alternative than teflon. We also don't include any dye into our Akela sheets, as dye is a very unfriendly chemical when it comes to good health.

Dehydrator Sheets - by Akela - to fit Excalibur Dehydrators - Silicone Non-Stick Drying Sheets
New and Improved!
Food grade solid sheet for drying fruit leathers, purées, roll-ups, meals, soups etc.
36 cm (14") square
These sheets are an alternative to the ParaFlexx Premium sheets. While not as effective as the Premium sheets, which have a higher non-stick quality, they offer a good non stick surface.
All you have to do to make great tasting treats and snacks is pour pureed fruits or yoghurt and P-E-E-L. Use them as baking sheets also!
These sheets are coated with high grade silicone for good non-stick properties. They are easy to clean and can be used time and time again.
Just like the Premium sheets, these flexible sheets are used for preparing your fruit leathers, rollups & natural sweet treats.
ParaFlexx Sheets are used for dehydrating semi-liquids (such as pureed fruits) or really sticky items that would normally drip through the mesh sheets that are included with the dehydrator.
They are also very useful when drying products that drip. Placing one in a tray at the bottom of the dryer saves having to clean drips off the base unit. The trays and sheets can be placed in the dishwasher after use.
These super flexible non-stick sheets are easy to clean and reusable for years.
The important difference between the two sheets is the coating used - where the ParaFlexx Ultra sheets use Silicone for the non-stick surface, the Premium sheets are coated with a Dupont Teflon.
ParaFlexx Ultra sheets don't last quite as long as the ParaFlexx Premium sheets, although the difference is not necessarily important if you are keen on having silicone. Like the Premium sheets, they are very durable. Additionally, the Ultra sheets are a little bit thicker than the Premium, with a micro-porous surface. Ultra sheets are a great alternative for those who are not fond of a Teflon surface.
Freight on sheet accessories is FREE within Australia when purchased at the same time as a dehydrator.
Great product - definitely non-stick as long as you let the first side dry sufficiently. I am really enjoying experimenting with crackers and fruit...
Thick, the weight is sufficient to keep the sheet from lifting (and tossing its contents), unlike the thin, Teflon coated sheet. Despite giving the...
