check the instructions, but generally do not remove that plastic.

That is a window to see the color changing crystals to let you know when it has absorbed sufficient moisture that it is time to recharge it by heating in an oven.

No, the granules are blue, as printed.

If that plastic is to hold in the blue granules, the plastic will not melt. Best way to try it is to put the dehumidifier on a tin pie plate. If it does melt, you won't mess up the oven. They are cheaper enough so there wont be a big loss.

Try a google search specific to the make and model should answer your question.

My oven "cooked" a similar product beyond recognition, it just got too hot to maintain 200 degrees.

All the best in 2020,

Assuming it is held in place by a screw top, remove it when re-activating it.

That's a Hornady canister?

No need to remove the plastic cover. Just don't exceed 300 degrees F.

Instructions can be downloaded here:

Every two weeks I take it out / plug it in to dry it ---- so far zero problems -- safe holds at a steady 35 % humid-ness --

As I know, you should not remove the plastic. Its purpose is to keep the balls contained yet visible for you to know and replace them when they're saturated (they generally change colors when that happens).

This is what I use. Got about 5 of them in the safe (better safe than sorry).
