Wals' sister was recently in Taiwan, and bought him a "Chip Maker". Being too lazy to make his own chips, he figured I would make better use of the contraption. Being the food dork I am, I was excited by the gift, and ran home to use it.
In reality, this chip maker really isn't a chip maker. It is a mandoline + chip container that you can put in the microwave.
Here's how this puppy works:
Throw your potato slices, with some seasoning, onto the chip carousel.
Microwave for 5-8 minutes, and ta da!
I made regular potato chips and sweet potato chips, and both tasted good. These were the flavors I tried:
- sea salt and pepper (excellent).
- cayenne pepper and salt (not bad...they were spicy).
- Terriyaki (Wouldn't try this at home, stick to dry salty spices. I used a terriyaki marinade and the sugars completely burnt the chips).
