    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

    Pooh...I was hoping to be able to make banana chips...
     
  6. Just used my chip maker...I love it. Plan to uses it at my next show. My next trial I plan to use tortilla's and make chips for my dips. I just love my pampered chef toys...

    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.

    must have something to do with all the differences in microwaves...
     
  9. Mine cooked in 3 1/2 minutes. It depends on the wattage of your microwave.
     
  10. Thank you so much for sharing this!!! It came in really handy today!!!:sing:

    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.

    Just last week I pulled the product guide from CC and the top said just potatoes, apples and yucca...but then the bottom gave instructions for pita nad tortilla chips...weird!

    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.

    Anyone done apples on a stone in the oven?

    Deb, are you saying yes to doing apples on the microwave chip maker in the microwave?
     
  20. DebPC

    DebPC CS Leader Staff Member

    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.

    I just found this link about apple chips. My only concern for this person is the link they have to the chip maker.

  22. If you use the Simple Slicer for potatoes, which is the best setting for making microwave chips?

    #1- it's the thinnest.
     
  24. Thanks so much, Deb!!

    Also with apples- you don't have to peel or core them. The slices are so thin- it's a non-issue.
