Step 2: Cut The Potato

Cut the potato into thin slices, as thin or as thick as you'd like.

Using a vegetable or cheese slicer (often found on a side of a cheese grater) works well.

The thinner the slice, the more quickly it will cook and the crispier it will be.

Step 5: Nuke it.

Put the plate in the center of your microwave and set it for five minutes. (cooking time will vary depending on how many chips you are making and the thickness of the slices)

Step 6: Watch the Chips

You have to watch the chips as they cook, because cooking time varies greatly. The chips are done when brown spots develop and they become crispy. Cook them as long or as little as you like to change the degree of crispy-ness.
Red wine vinegar is far superior to white vinegar when it come to flavoring potatoes and while more expensive than white, it is still pretty cheap, make sure to use a little salt though so that it sticks the the potato. Yummm :)
