This dryer is useful for home drying of mushrooms (and herbs, nuts...). It uses (often) unused space at the top of a refrigerator. It has six independent PC vents from an electronic waste, each with two speeds. Air flows from the rear side, practically silent. It has no warming, uses warm from the fridge. Mushroom slices are on the racks, with net or wrapping paper.
Dryer consists from three parts. Cabinet, racks and vent frame.
Total drying area is 4 m², pre-drying spends 1 day (after this time content can be moved to intensive warm drying). Drying is not a bottle neck of the workflow with this dryer (for home use). Cutting will be the bottle neck.

Rack is "drawer" for dryed material. There are many ways how to made it. We have two types, both with wooden frame. One (massive) with a net and 13 (lite) with bee wiring.
Rack with net
We use it for some heavy things (nuts, rose hip fruits...). With paper or not. Two layers frame. A net can be washed.
Rack with paper
One layer frame. It needs careful using. Bee wire and metal pins.
