    Default Microwave Chip Maker

    I got this in e-mail from my upline today:

    ExecuFlash
    One Pampered Chef Lane, Addison, IL 60101-5630
    From Jean Jonas, Senior Vice President, Sales

    Please feel free to share this with your downline.

    Dear Executive Director,

    I’d like to share some information with you regarding the new Microwave Chip Maker.

    I’m happy to report many Consultants have told us they’re very excited about this product and feel it will be a big seller this fall. Here is some important information that will help you and your team effectively demonstrate the product at your Shows:

    • Please note, cooking times vary significantly depending on the age, model and wattage of the microwave being used. The key is to find the right cook times for the microwave you’re using.
    • To insure the best results when demonstrating this product at your Shows, refer to the table below.


    Suggested Cook Times

    Vegetable/Fruit: Single Tray, Double Tray

    ________________________________________

    Potatoes (russet, red, yellow): 2 minutes, 3 minutes
    ________________________________________

    Sweet Potato: 2 minutes, 3 minutes
    ________________________________________

    Apple: 3 minutes, 4 minutes
    ________________________________________

    Yucca: 1 ½ minutes, 2 ½ minutes
    ________________________________________

    Important microwave steps for all foods

    Check doneness and microwave in 30-second intervals
    until desired crispness is reached.

    Rotate top to bottom after recommended cook time and
    microwave in 30-second intervals until desired crispness
    is reached. Rotate trays as needed for even doneness.
    ________________________________________



    • This product is to be used only for potatoes, sweet potatoes, apples and yucca. Do not use the Microwave Chip Maker with other foods.
    • If the microwave becomes hot, allow it to cool prior to starting the next batch.
    • If there is no turntable, rotate the trays (a quarter or half turn) every 30 seconds to avoid hot spots.
    • The Microwave Chip Maker is not a dehydrator.


    We’re updating the Use and Care instructions to reflect this information. The new Use and Care will be included in all products shipped Sept.1 and after. It will also be posted on Consultant’s Corner.

    We’ll send you an email when the updated Use and Care information has been posted and we’ll also include Consultants who have either earned this product or purchased it as a sample.

    Have fun using and demonstrating your Microwave Chip Maker and all of our fabulous new products. Here’s to a fantastic fall!

    Much Success,

    Jean Jonas

    Thanks for sharing!

    Maybe this is why the new use and care will say not to use other foods ... like meat!

    Who's going to figure out how to make meat chips with our MCM?

    Hmmm- makes me wonder-

    At conference I know the test kitchen lady said they did corn tortilla and they came out very good-

    I did plantain chips they were great- It had to be the unripe side vs ripe
    ( tried it today but the plantain was too ripe and it did not work well

    I have done the russet chips in my microwave and for a host. For a double tray we did 8 min as per the current use and care. Came out great. If I cut the time to 3 min...they won't even be close to being done! I don't understand the change in the cook time.

    Mine cooked in 3 1/2 minutes. It depends on the wattage of your microwave.

    I had a guest try the Simple Slicer at a show yesterday, and saw that it was as easy as I said. Then the host threw the thin slices onto the LBP in the oven for a few minutes--they were fabulous!! Nothing on them. Sold 2 more Simple Slicers. I'm not a big fan of the Chip Makers for the microwave.

    I haven't tried them on a stone. But I've done them in the microwave.Yes! They come out as a dried apple- not crunchy. Very yummy! You don't peel or core the apple- isn't necessary because they're so thin. Extra nutrition! Becaue of the sugar though, i watch mine, because if they're in there too long- they start to burn.

    Oh yes! In the use and care instructions- it's approved for potatoes, sweet potatoes, apples and yuccas.
    The apple sweetness gets concentrated and they're really good- just not crispy.
