    :cry: Microwave Chip Maker will not ship till late July/mid-Aug. :cry:

    I bought 10 lbs of potatoes today anticipating using it this week!! :grumpy:

    Anyone know if it was included in the sell-a-thon and just left out of directors pkg? Director pkg arrived today w/out it :(

    It's in the Director's package, it is just coming at a later date.

    that's really scary that it would be on backorder before it's even out for retail sale.

    It's happened before. The manufacturer just didn't get them delivered in time for the director and SAT packages. We should be okay for the selling season. I'm disappointed too though.

    I placed a sample order on August 1st and when I got my order it said that the chip maker was on B/O, scheduled to ship on 8/15 (yay!)

    :confused:I want to do some sort of potato chip with the rub for my pantry show next week...Question: if I slice the potato thin & put it on the bar pan--what temp & how long would you bake it for?

    I doubt it will work, because you won't have the same airflow that the Chipmaker has. It has holes in the bottom.

    I have done it and I think at like 350 or 325 i did and like 10 minutes ish and just watch them. They do not have the same CRUNCH mut they still have some crunch..... still tasty to me. :D What about the ridged baker? That would give some air flow. Dunno though, but worth a shot maybe??
