I'd like to try dehydrating some sauce but my racks are wire with 1/2" openings. Do I have to buy the Excaliber Paraflexx sheets or are there other options? The racks for my dehydrator are roughly 16 1/4" by 14 1/4".

I have used parchment paper and have also seen saran wrap used to cover the tray.

Parchment paper worked well for me when I did sauce.

The Paraflexx is SO over priced from Excaliber- but I did find the sheets elsewhere for much better prices-

This one claims to be more "natural" if silicone can be that...KSO DIrect

This is where I bought my sheets-
Amazon- Exclaiber Dehydrator Sheets

I think I'll try the parchment paper. That will give me an Inexpensive way to experiment. Thanks for the tip I would not have guessed that would work. The Excaliber stuff does seem pretty expensive and It looks like you need to buy Nine sheets at a time. I think they have a no return policy to. That scared me off from buying one of their units.

+1 Here is a link to a 5 pack for a bit less money that I bought;

I tried parchment paper and thought it was a complete hassle. Cutting the paper down so it fit, having it twist and roll from having been on the dispenser roll, plus the sheets above seem easier to peel leathers off of.

I had to cut the above sheets down to size (i think my trays are 12*12) but only once. They were alittle rolly when they arrived but after a few uses they lay perfectly flat since I wipe them clean when done and hang them on the basement clothsline to dry.
