Potato chip lovers rejoice—TopChips makes fresh, yummy, fatfree crisps at home.
EASY & DELISH | I’m a complete potato chip queen, though most people who know me don’t know it. I seldom buy this yummy could-there-be-anything-unhealthier-with-more-empty-calories snack because I have a tendency to overindulge. Now, thankfully, with my new TopChips chips maker I never have to think about the quantity of crisps I consume or whether or not they’re good for me because chips made using this inexpensive, inventive microwave tray are 100 percent fat free—really.
Chips Off The Old Potato
If I hadn’t experimented with the TopChips maker myself, I wouldn’t have believed it capable of producing a homemade potato chip with the same satisfying crunch of a store bought one, but it can—in three minutes no less. And I wouldn’t have thought it could deliver a great potato chip taste without oil, but it does. To be fair, TopChips don’t taste exactly like chips that have been saturated in oil. TopChips potato chips taste healthy in a good way, more like actual potatoes. They reminded my tasting crew of Pringles.
The TopChips kit ($15.00 on Amazon) comes with a mini-mandolin that slices whatever vegetable or fruit you choose (potato, sweet potato, carrot, apple, etc.) into consistently thin wafers, and a perforated silicone tray that holds the slices and facilitates crisping in the microwave.—Ruth Rainey
