Product Review: Mastrad TopChips Maker


topchips chip maker final-9722

There aren’t very many kitchen gadgety-doo-da’s that impress both Cheri and me. But let me just get this out upfront. We both were speechless when the chips came out of the microwave – super crispy and crunchy. WHAT???? A microwave does this?? Yup. It did. With no oil.


*components vary by model

Mastrad sent over a set for us to review, and the box just sat there in my pantry for 2 months before I even pulled it out. That’s how much doubt I had for making potato chips in the microwave, good enough to actually enjoy. Well you’ll just have to watch the review video to see.

All of my product reviews are of my honest opinion, good or bad :-) We get tons of product to test and only pick a few to actually create a video review for. We don’t get bribed to say nice things.

    Hi there,

    Does this chip-maker work for making vegetable chips?

    Long ago there was another type of potato chip maker microwave. Place side way the potatos and microwave. Not very good. Now this one I am not sure also. But still like the ideal . Wonder good with sweet potatos?

    I guess any vegetable the approximate texture of a potato would work- I’m thinking beet, parsnip, carrot, yam, turnip, etc.

  8. i’ve always just assumed these things were a scam! even when we sold them at sur la table i wouldn’t use my discount to buy them! now i’m sad :( i love potato chips!!

      I’m not sure – did you dry the potatoes really well? How thin did you cut the potatoes?
