I love making things in the kitchen from scratch! It makes me feel like I am doing a good deed for my family, and I am able to control what goes into the food they eat.
We generally are not a potato chip family, but every once in a while we enjoy them. And we have really started liking sweet potato chips.
My kitchen is not large by any means, so I generally do not bother with equipment that has just one purpose. If it takes up shelf space, I can use it for several purposes.
However, a few weeks ago I found myself invited to a Pampered Chef party. I flipped through their catalog and on a whim thought I would purchase a potato chip maker for the microwave. I fully intended that it would probably be a one and done item but I was feeling adventuresome that night, so I took the plunge.
I am here to tell you it is great! Go out and find a Pampered Chef distributor and get one. I normally don’t get excited about items like this, but the microwave potato chip maker is great!
Some little facts (because I like numbers):
– I used $.20 in potatoes to get 68 potato chips.
– Those 68 potato chips served my husband, my daughter, and me
– It took me 2 minutes to cut up the potatoes
– It took about 10 minutes to microwave the potatoes
And the best part, no oil was used and no salt! I used Mrs. Dash on the potatoes and just popped them in the microwave. I have ventured out and done sweet potatoes as well. My next adventure will be beets when I get some from the garden.
If you need some new excitement in the kitchen, give this a try. I think it is well worth the time spent and the knowledge in knowing you can have a snack food that is healthy!

You can also make apple chips! My fave “potato chips” are with the chili lime rub sprinkled on top. This is such a fun tool.
