The MASTRAD A64601 TOP Chips Maker and Slicer Set
To use, you simply have to slice the potatoes or other fruits and vegetables thinly and evenly using the mandolin. Place them in a single layer on the chips tray, and microwave according to enclosed directions. When done, season with your favorite topping and you have a healthy and delicious snack that you will not regret eating or serving your children.
As mentioned, you can stack multiple trays to cook more than one serving at a time. This feature can be used for kids to experiment and try different vegetables and fruits.
The Mastrad Top Chips maker measures 10.9 by 1.1 by 10.9 inches and weighs 9 ounces. It is therefore usable even with the smallest of microwaves.
Note that additional trays can be obtained (see the MASTRAD A64501 product below in Amazon products section) so you can use the tray interlocking feature to cook more than one serving of potato chips at a time, or different varieties such as carrot or banana chips.
Other Brands of Microwave Chips Makers
To use, you simply hold the vegetable or fruit with the holder, slice it thinly with the slicer, take the slices and place them into the slots of the rack or on the tray (depending on whether the product comes with a tray or a rack), and then microwave according to directions.
Note that unlike the Mastrad chip maker, these other products do not allow interlocking of multiple trays in order to cook simultaneously more than one serving of potato chips or different varieties of chips.
Another popular chip maker (other than the Mastrad) is the Ronco Chip-Tastic shown below (please click the images for more info):
So which microwave chips maker to get?
As mentioned in the introduction above, it takes a few tries until you perfect your microwave chips making technique. Once you are there, both products described above should make you delicious chips. If you are not satisfied with the results of your first tries, it is quite probably because you are not following the directions that come with the product (temperature and time settings, quantities made, etc). Having said that, when you compare microwave chip makers, there are some differences one should consider:
For the above reasons, when you compare microwave potato chip makers, we recommend the MASTRAD even though it is slightly more expensive than the other brands.
