How To Make Crisps In The Microwave March 18, 2010

We use our microwave to cook lots of different types of food.  But CRISPS?  That is something we hadn’t even considered.

Clearly someone had, because savourysweetlife.com has put together a guide to help you do just that.  So if you’ve got time on your hands and are feeling particularly domestic, why not give it a try?


1 russet potato
Non stick spray
Parchment paper or glass plate
Salt and Pepper


1) Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the inside of your microwave.  You can also use a glass plate.

2) Carefully slice 1/3 of a potato into paper thin slices using a mandoline. You don’t want to cut any more than this because any extra slices laying around waiting to be cooked will turn pink in color.

3) Completely coat the parchment paper or glass plate with non-stick spray or vegetable oil, and place the potato slices in a single layer.

4) Spray the potato slices with non stick spray/vegetable oil and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.

5) Turn off the rotating option on your microwave and cook for 4-5 minutes. Cooking times will vary based on the strength and power of your microwave. Some crisps may turn very dark brown. Ideally you want them light and golden.

6) Repeat the process until you’ve used your entire potato. Enjoy!

… The mind boggles!
