    Hi Chef John,
    Thinking this would work for sweet potato chips too?

  • Janet Gerney on August 6, 2022

    Chef John! I'm a huge kettle-style chips fan. If I make thicker slices, will I get a kettle-style chip?
    Thanks! I wish I'd known this in college – we would microwave M&Ms for snacks, and 'tater' chips would have been an epic addition to our 'stoner snack' list!

  • Julian Grilli on August 6, 2022

    Can this be done with a sweet potato?

  • David Johnson on August 6, 2022

    This is going to put the chips/crisp makers out of business.

    that retro styled microwave is very cool

  • Nancy Byrd on August 6, 2022

    LOL! The chips are less fat but dipping them into sourcream killed that concept! Who cares, right? Thanks for sharing, John!!

  • Walter Sickinger on August 6, 2022

    Incredibly labour intensive, time and energy consuming way to make a handful of chips.

  • Janice G on August 6, 2022

    Omg this is a great idea! I had a microwave potato chip maker that was plastic ugh, think about that, it melted one day, gross!

    the way you talk is hypnotic.

    After being saved by my nail 3 times, I now always use the guard

  • marc venables on August 6, 2022

    Mmm crisps 😉

  • Sabre on August 6, 2022

    Time isnt real

  • Kolya Hijack on August 6, 2022

    Looks great and all, but… Guess ill just spend 3-5$ for a pack of chips

  • BRIAN BUCHBINDER on August 6, 2022

    Please use a fish cutting glove with the mandoline. I'm not a vegetarian, but I do like my chips meat-free.

  • V P on August 6, 2022

    This is the second three decade old recipe I've seen today… I was thinking it was nostalgia day and when I saw your microwave it was confirmed (chorizo Bolognese/lasagna was the other recipe). =8-)

  • Reiwas on August 6, 2022

    the only problem is, you need massive microwave, one batch is soo little 😀 I used to make mine on paper towels and you dont need any oil at all

    OMG, where was this a week ago when I was trying to make potato chips for the first time! cries over four wasted potatoes Thank you, this will help so much with my next try.

  • Gabriela Karl on August 6, 2022

    Your loud and gusto chewing made me drool lol

  • Ben Adams on August 6, 2022

    I found this fascinating until you started chewing, then it drove me freakin' crazy. I can't stand hearing eating sounds. OY!

  • karenamanda1958 on August 6, 2022

    Hi! Any reason why you should brush them with oil instead of using an oil spritzer? Thanks!

  • everett473 on August 6, 2022

    These take much more time to make than eat
