For those who are annoyed at how long it takes to microwave - take your tablet or phone (or whatever) and watch shows and read fb on it (or nab your SO or buddy or kid and have a chat lol). That should make time go by faster, and yay multi tasking!
For anyone who had problems where some chips are still soggy while others are already burning - go in increments of 2 min at a time, then 1 min until it's done. In between each set, open it up and check on status - take out the chips that looks like they're done and continue with the soggy ones. That way nothing gets burnt. Alternatively try to fit approx equal sized (size and thickness) slices on the same plate.
I highly recommend getting a pair of silicon tipped tongs so that you can take chips or even the whole rubber plate out without burning yourself. For anyone who got access to SF Japantown, the Ichibankan in there sells Seria brand (Japanese 100 yen brand) silicon tipped ones for only like $1.75 (a bit more than 100 yen, prob 'cause of shipping and customs tax).
After reading up some reviews, and considering the cheap price, I went ahead and bought this for myself. Please note that I live alone so I won't be making chips for other people in my household too. That's important, because this gadget, unfortunately, is not made for mass production of chips!Read more ›
It's true that the product manual is light on instructions, but frankly this is because there are very few instructions needed - slice potatoes, dry (I laid my slices out on paper towels while i got things ready - not more than 10 minutes total), place on trays, microwave. Ta da! The manual is also very clear that cooking time will vary for individual microwaves, so to me, it doesn't seem like a flaw that I need to monitor the cooking time. After my 3rd tray of chips, I had already gotten the timing down. It's also true that - again according to each individual microwave - chips in the middle of the tray may cook faster than the chips on the outer rim on the tray. Again, this isn't a problem for me - it takes about 5 seconds to open the microwave and either remove the finished chips or rotate the middle & outer chips for more even cooking. This is still a much better method than cooking chips in the oven, if only because it works faster (I can have a bowl of chips finished in the time it takes my oven to heat up) and because it means a LOT less clean up afterwards.
Some tips that I've already learned:
- Much easier to add salt/seasoning before the chips have cooked, as salt will stick to the damp surface better.
- When first using your chip trays, start with the manual's suggested cooking time, and add more time in 30 second increments, checking often.Read more ›
They taste sort of like a baked Pringle. I salted mine, next time I'll try salt and pepper.
My recommendations: Cook one plate at a time, don't stack the plates if you have more than one. Season BEFORE you put it in, cook on high for 2 minutes. Take out, flip the chips, season the other side and put back in for 3 minutes. If you have more than one plate, you can put the new plate in while you're flipping the chips from the first plate. WATCH OUT as your microwave will get hot while cooking a batch. I have found that one medium potato will make enough chips to fill a sandwich bag full and takes about 30 minutes to complete; potato wash to clean up.
I HATE to cook but I LOVE fixing these chips! They are healthier and far less expensive than store bought chips. Not to mention VERY tasty as you can season them with any season you want. I highly recommend this product to chip lovers everywhere!

I have tried this in microwave does exactly what it says. First time was sweet potatoes. Yum. Easiest fix yetPublished 1 month ago by R. B
It Works perfectly. The little mandoline cutter that comes with this silicon platform is the ticket. Cuts the potatoes thinly enough to become very crisp. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Electic Chef
