Product Description

Flexible square screens make drying sticky foods easier to remove. Screen flexes for easy removal of sticky fruits such as pineapple. Perfect for drying small items like spices and herbs that would normally fall through the spokes of the tray. 2 Screen included. Fits FD-80 and FD-80A Square Dehydrator. Colder ambient temperatures may cause the bend to temporarily hold in that position. Consequently, warmer ambient temperature would flatten it out. Please run the item under hot water to flatten.

Customer Reviews

This thing works great, the reason for the 3 starts is this is supposed to be a SQM-2-6, other sites sell this and it is a 6 pack of 2 screens (12 screens). I purchased this and received just two screens with the part number of SQM-2 on the package. Nesco sells this on their site for $7.95, I paid $35.99 thinking I was getting 12 screens. The Amazon site needs to be updated for a cost of just two screens or change it so you receive 12 screens.

I love dried bananas, and if you're going to dry bananas or anything else that's gooey or sticky at all, then you need these. This works with Nesco FD-80A, Nesco FD-80, and Nesco FD-80P.

At first I thought they were just a gimmick, but they really work. With bananas, if I don't use these, then it takes about fifteen minutes of hard labor to peel the bananas off, and my fingers are sore for days after. If I do use these, then it only takes 15 seconds, and the bananas just slide off without breaking. I bought two of these packs, so now I have five total. The one that came with my drier, and then two each in both packs equals five. I also got two extension trays, so now I have six total trays for my drier, but only five of these screens.

And, the Nesco standard trays aren't bad for bananas, at least compared to regular dehydrators. These special screens just make drying so much easier.

Pros:
+A must have for any drying of stuff that might get stuck
+Great design
+Works wonderfully
+Doesn't block any air flow

Cons:
-You'll end up having an odd number of these screens for the even number of trays that come with the dehydrator

I got the Nesco square dehydrator and a few extra trays for it. It came with one of these "Clean Screens" and after the first time I used it I had to order a few more of them.

I use these to make "Vegetable Chips" by shredding Zucchini, Kale, and other veg, mixing in a touch of Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and Zest, Salt and Ground Flax seeds. It makes a sort of wet mixture from all the water in the Zucchinis, this turns the flax seed meal a bit gooey like eggs and this holds it all together.

The pieces or shredded veg are too small to go onto the main trays, but the mix spreads perfectly onto these Clean Screens. The next morning I have delicious crispy vegetable chips. They come off clean and the trays are easy to wash.

These screens are also great for anything too small to put on the normal trays, or anything wet and messy because they are so much easier to clean.

The price is good and Amazon shipping rocks.

One of these screens came with my dehydrator, and it's not bad, but many of the holes aren't cleanly punched so I had to poke them a bit with an ice pick. That's why I'm only giving these a 3 star instead of 5. Instead of buying more of these, which I think costs too much, I bought plastic needlepoint canvas at Wal-Mart for a tiny fraction of the cost, and I got 6 of them in a package. Simply cut them off at one end, cut out the hole in the middle, and you're good to go. Because of the incomplete cleaning out of the holes in the Clean-a-Screen, things definitely dry more slowly than the needlepoint canvas, and they are more difficult to clean. I can get more volume of food on the Clean-a-Screen, but not much. I recommend that you have a very small diameter round brush to clean this with, but you won't need it for the needlepoint canvas.

I wrote to the company about this price-gouging for $39.99 - don't order these here. Go to the company and order directly for $12.95 total (includes shipping and handling). The Nesco rep said they'd try to correct this situation but don't know if they can if this is a different company selling their screens. The screens themselves are great and useful - perfect for drying nuts and herbs - and that's why I'm ordering 2 more from Nesco. But I'm only giving them three stars because you can get a much better price directly from Nesco.

$5 a screen is highway robbery. You can get plastic canvas from any craft store, cut a hole in the middle of the sheet and voila - you now have a clean a screen for about 50 cents instead of $5. A big thank you for this suggestion to the first person who reviewed the Nesco dehydrator and gave this tip. The screens clean easily and are a must when doing fruits or things with a high sugar content (e.g. some marinades for meat/jerky have a high sugar content.) The dehydrator itself does not come with these screens, so you will need to fork out another $20 (there are 2 per package), or go the craft store plastic canvas route.

Like the previous poster, I was expecting 6 sets of 2 screens for $36. I received my package today and found only 2 screens. I spoke with a very helpful Amazon rep and was assured they would check on the description/pricing issue, and I could return my purchase for a full refund. Since I have 30 days to return them, I plan to keep them for a bit to see if Amazon will send my other 5 boxes. In the meantime...just know that you will be paying $36 for two screens that should sell for about $8.

With that being said - the screens are great. A MUST for a Nesco FD-80! Get one for each tray. My one star rating does not represent the quality of the product, merely the obvious error on the description.
