Chip-Tastic makes fat-free chips
This little gadget makes crispy crunchy potato chips in your microwave in about 7-8 minutes. It comes with a potato slicer and recipe booklet and cost less than $10.
The potato chip maker comes with a mandoline for slicing potatoes.
Simply slice potatoes, season, place slices in slots of chip maker, and microwave for 7-8 minutes. That’s it, and the chips are every bits as crispy as the ones from a bag.
The recipe booklet offers a number of different seasonings including barbecue, dill pickle, and salt & vinegar variations. In addition to potatoes, you can also cook sweet potatoes, apples, and pears. The book also says mango, but that sounds a little weird to me.
French Onion Dip
Try the chips with my French Onion Dip recipe. It’s amazingly delicious!
You know how you thought French onion dip was out of your life forever? Well, think again! This Vegan French Onion Dip version is not only dairy-free, but also low-fat. Caramelized onions are what gives this dip the sweetest flavor.

For those concerned about microwave safety
Fear of microwaves is not science-based. We are surrounded by devices that emit minute quantities of electromagnetic radiation. A microwave is about as dangerous as a laptop. Probably less as we don’t hold it in our lap while it operates.
We should likely be more concerned about cell phone use than microwaves. Below are a number of articles from Harvard, OSHA, and World Health Organization (WHO) that might help.

I ordered this potato chip maker thinking it was too good to be true. But, I was totally surprised! It comes with a potato slicer, Chip-Tastic microwave ring, and recipe booklet.
Simply slice the potatoes on the slicer. I scrub mine and leave the peel on for extra fiber. I've used both Russet and red potatoes, and they come out terrific every time.
Place each slice in the Chip Tastic ring. It holds approximately 1 potato at a time (32 chips). Sprinkle with seasonings, and place in the microwave. The instruction/recipe booklet says it takes about 3-4 minutes, but I have found to get them crispy in my microwave, it takes 7-8 minutes. No oil needed!
As unbelievable as it sounds, they come out as crispy as any bought potato chips I've ever tasted!
The recipe booklet offers a number of different seasonings including barbecue, dill pickle, and salt & vinegar variations. In addition to potatoes, you can also cook sweet potatoes, apples, and pears. The book also says mango, but that sounds a little weird to me. Hope you enjoy this little gadget as much as we do! Try them with my French Onion Dip, recipe below.
They are great with my Black Bean Burger recipe. New recipe coming up next week, so stay tuned!
