I know there are in line filters that are sold that can be used with the platys. But not used them myself. For an instant hit there are even filter straws, which I have used. There are also sport drink bottle based filters as well. Which I've used as well. When I get home I'll post the make I use.
Anthony, there are one or two on here that do this. Several did their meals for the TGO Challenge this way. I've done this, made snacks with it as well, and yes I do recommend it. If you catch Podcast Bob at a meet whether OM or BPC then he usually does a sample session. He also sells some good dehydrators as well. It's where I got mine from. BUt others have used a lot cheaper model to test the waters with (have a wonder over to Aktoman's blog for a look at the one he got).
