Updated on July 30, 2022

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.

Yummy Seasonings

Easy to Make Barbeque Coating

I like to play around with my barbeque seasoning. Here are some of the herbs that I add to my chip recipe. You can use all of these ingredients or some of your favorite. Remember to season to your taste. You may like more or less some of the elements in this list.

  • Chili powder is the main spice in Mexican cooking; this is also necessary for barbeque potato chips.
  • Cayenne – pepper is where most of the kick in these superheated potato chips comes.
  • For a good reason, it is garlic powder – a seasoning nearly everybody appears to have in their pantry. Garlic adds lots of mouthwatering flavor to potato chips.
  • Mustard powder might astonish you, but it's one of the "zesty" features of spicy chips! I suggest Colman's trademark mustard. If you can't find it, the mustard powder is available for mail order.
  • Onion powder – I keep garlic powder in my cupboard next; the onion powder condiment gives my meals another delicious coating of seasoning for all of my chip recipes.
  • Smoked paprika – traditional Hungarian paprika is good here; while I love smoked paprika for the deep smoky flavor, it adds another layer of flavor.
  • Cumin – can also be used for barbeque flavoring; it adds a bit of depth that's delicious to my palate.

Any Fruit of Vegetable Make Great Chips

So Crispy and Nutritious

You may want to experiment with the types of fruits and vegetables used for chips. For example, I like bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and apples for quick and easy traveling snacks. In addition, you may find that season vegetables like zucchini, carrots, and kale are suitable substitutes for potatoes.

I always like to experiment before making large batches of any new recipe. You may find that some vegetables and fruits work better than others. I discovered d that making my chips in advance is the best way always to have healthy snacks. I use a sealing tool that removes all of the air out of my Mason jars. It seals the chips with an air-tight seal keeping them fresh. Another option is a seal a meal which fills with plastic bags. It would help if you remembered that chips get broken by the pressure created when the air is removed. I find jars work best for fragile foods.
