Re: Which Dehydrater ... Or Even Do I Bother

If you're just looking for lids for normal sized cans then the pet section is where you want to look, they'll have paw prints on them most likely but it's never bothered me, can pick them up in the pound shop and I've seen them in supermarkets as well I store my dried mushrooms in clip top kilner st...

Re: Which Dehydrater ... Or Even Do I Bother

I don't find the smell too bad, just a normal cooking smell really, although I have been toying with the idea of dehydrating prawns as a treat for one of my cats and it's the expected smell that's putting me off! Onions dry better if you very quickly blanch them first, at least they do in my dehydra...

Re: Toiletries

Yep, it's a crap crapper.

I think it's designed to save water, counter productive if you need to flush it 75 times every time you use it.

Alternatively, maybe I should lay off the beans...

Re: Toiletries

My khazi blocks up just with paper, really crap design and I'll be glad when I can rip the damn thing out. Aside from that, the ones that do break down are much the same as paper, although because they're wet you can wad them up a bit tighter, the ones that don't break down are in some cases made of...

Re: Toiletries

Some of the wet pipes are ok, I saw a programme where they tested various brands to see which ones break down, the andrex washlets are ok and the asda equivalent I use are also ok, some are not, and some of the ones that aren't say they are. You can test the ones you have by sticking them in a bowl ...

Re: Purging gasses and food containers

I used to put a squirt of nitrogen into opened wine bottles at the end of the shift when I ran a pub, you'd never get all the oxygen out but it means the wine is nicer when you pour a glass the next day.

Re: Which Dehydrater ... Or Even Do I Bother

I think with the fruit it's down to the reduction in size, with fresh melon I'd stop after a maximum of half a melon, more like a quarter usually, but dried I could keep going past two whole ones, dehydrating it only really gets rid of the water, the rest of it is still there so I think it's the she...

Re: Which Dehydrater ... Or Even Do I Bother

It's the sweetest thing ever, really good though. :) Bought a couple to give it a try, got an couple of pineapples for a quid too, they're good in the dehydrator too. Give them a couple of days in the warm before you dry them, you want them as ripe as possible, and keep track of how much you eat, y...

Re: Which Dehydrater ... Or Even Do I Bother

I have a cheapo vonshef one, cost about 25 to 30 quid, bought a cheap one to see how much use I got out of it and so far I've had it three years. The clear plastic trays irritate me as it's pretty fragile but as long as you're careful washing them then there's no reason it won't last, there's not mu...
