    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.

    Anyone done apples on a stone in the oven?

    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.

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

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