Microwaves have gotten a bad rap with some people because they just don’t cook some things as they should be cooked—food blog Savory Sweet Life attempts to squash this misconception with a lesson on cooking potato crisps in the microwave.

While nothing compares to homemade, deep-fried potato crisps, this is super quick and easy—all you need is a mandoline (or a vegetable peeler if you don’t have one), some non-stick spray, parchment paper, and, of course, a potato.

One batch doesn’t produce a huge amount, so you might have to do a few if you’re feeling especially peckish—but it doesn’t take very long. All you need to do is coat some parchment paper with the non-stick spray and stick some super-thin potato slices on it and nuke for about 5 minutes in the microwave, and Voilà—potato crisps to satisfy any carb-hound. Hit the link for the more detailed recipe.

We’ve also done a detailed experiment on sweet potato crisps using the microwave method with step-by-step instructions. Check it out here.
