This is very good recipe especially for those who are dieting.

Hello!! I got ur book on my i-phone yesterday and I tried this recipe from that book. It is a good recipe but Chips stick to the plate after I take them out of Microwave after 5 minutes of cooking. Please suggest some way to get rid off this problem. I directly placed the chips on Microwave plate coz I was not sure the plates I have are Microwave safe or not as We usually use stove and microwave is only to use when gas is not available.

you could use a glass or microwave friendly plastic plate.

Nice one, nonetheless :))

So one of my chips started sparking but I threw it out and then everything went fine. Also, mine stuck to the paper as well. Not only is this a good snack but it also helps steam any old food off your micro wave!
how do potatoes spark? i geuse it's one of earths unsolved mysteries. speaking of wich, i watched animal planet the other day. they had video evidence of "the missing link!" otherwise known as big foot. he murdered a guy trying to shoot a forest ranger. they also found video evidence of a ver large lizard thing. it has infectionous bateria in its mouth. the guy in it was eaten alive. he had a wife/girlfriend. a moment of silence....................... okay, i know that was WAY off topic. but come on, thats some intresting stuff.
I'm thinking it could be any sort of metal bit embedded in the potato,from iron ore bits(my construction magnet picks up all sorts of small stones where we live(IL,near St. Louis)),to a piece of rust from a civil war relic,to even an old piece of foil that had been tilled under years before.If it was small enough,and situated within a slice,it might not be seen.BTW,professional wrestling is REAL!!!,and NONE of the towing/repo shows are staged,my wife said so,lol.Just kidding about the shows,but that's my theory on the sparks,and I'm sticking to it!
was the lizard a komodo dragon?
no. aparently, its a lizard monster, larger than a human, but i dont believe in it.

you have reason too, they found ancient cave paintings of it in the dino era. And at the end of that time only creatures that could go underground or underwater survived that um... apocalypse. and it definitely wasn't a water dweller, nor could it dig underground...
... so it would have died out.
You also have to take into consideration that people were a lot shorter than they are now, and that anything that looked huge back then isnt really that large, compared to our height. :)
supposed relative

actually, those are made up videos based on the myths/ evidence of those creatures; it says so in the show.

If you want to add cheese of any kind, do it in the last half-minute of the process. Don't overcook it. For an 1000W microwave lamp running at 100% power:

slice of cheddar, gouda, emmentaler: 10s
farmhouse cheeses, very fat, but somewhat dry, lightly astringent: 20-30s
extra-dry cheese like italian Parmesan: 30s-1minute -> this is your best bet!

Don't microwave blue-green cheeses. Nasty. Most should be eaten cold.
You may have some success with light white cheeses such as Brie, Camembert, certain regional varieties. Greek feta is not a good idea either.

Avoid factory-melt cheeses. They use various potassium salts which still linger. Microwaving them further transforms the composition of the cheese, making it unsuitable for eating, if not toxic.

Does this work with other vegetables, or do they just turn mushy. Really trying to figure out how to cook or dehydrate veggies that makes them more snackable.

As was mentioned, either, use baking paper, sprinkle plate w/ any salt, tony's, sea etc, or And spray plate w/ Pam,, Don't open door les you gt a fire till done, you"ll know by looking, toaster oven works great too, just needy to flip,

I tried this and i didnt get too good results, but i think i know why, you are using a paper plate which is absorbing the moisture, and i didnt get brown spots at any stage.

Nice chips! I made two modifications to your 'ible. First, I used a KitchenAid mixer attachment to slice the potatoes. This made many more chips and made them much thinner. Second, I sprayed the plate with Pam so the chips wouldn't stick. Works like a charm!

You can put the salt on the plate first - then place slices on the solt
the salt grains will keep it from sticking to the plate. and the slices waight will make the salt stick..

I have tried it!, very cool and delicious. But my potatoes were sticked to the plate, so I used this structure made of sticks, and that was the result: http://s884.photobucket.com/albums/ac46/ebsct/ http://s884.photobucket.com/albums/ac46/ebsct/?action=view&current=P7310004.jpg http://s884.photobucket.com/albums/ac46/ebsct/?action=view&current=P7310001.jpg

Ok so I had to take the thin ones off the plate after 6 minutes (they smell like Mickey d's fries) and I put the thicker ones back in for 3? Minutes. Mm they taste good
