Cynthia Haltom, Ph.D. is an accomplished educator and author of over 100 books. Many of her books are about cooking.

I recently purchased the Mastrad top chips maker and potato chips in my house are now a healthy treat. I had a potato chip maker before but it didn't really make crispy chips. I heard that this new style chip maker really worked so I thought I would give it a try. So I ordered it and when it came I read through the instructions, slice the potatoes, popped them into the microwave and voila crispy chips just like the package claimed. I could hardly believe my mouth.

My friend just bought this chip maker and uses all sorts of vegetables for her chips. She uses carrots and kale and I must admit they are just as tasty as the potatoes. The ideas are endless and fruits can also be cooked into handy on the go snacks.

The process is easy with the slicer you simply slice a potato, salt them on a paper towel, and blot the excess liquid from the potatoes. I salted the paper towel first then the top of the chips too. Be sure to keep the paper towel on the chips again. It take a little trial and error because all microwave are a little different. The instructions have a guide to help you determine the length of time to cook them. I marked the time down on the instructions so anyone in my family would be able to cook them correctly.

After a few batches I reach perfection with my timing and made several more batches. I bought some extra cooking trays so I could prepare them with potatoes while the other one was cooking. It took about 1 medium potato for each batch and there is no need to peel it. Just make sure it is washed and dried before you start. I stored the chips is a large plastic storage container and several days later they were as crispy as the day I made them. The instructions also say that it can be used to make chips from fruit as well. This would make a great gift to give for any occasion.

      Do you suppose you could use this to make kale chips too?
