I love home baked chips! Here are a few tips for perfect crisp chips: <br/><br/>1) Soak the sliced potatoes anywhere from 5 minutes to overnight. This depends on how much time you have but one good rinse/soak is a must, you'll see the water turn cloudy-that's the excess starch! Excess excess starch is the main reason potatoes fail to crisp. <br/><br/>2) Remove excess water before baking. (I use my salad spinner but paper towels work fine.) <br/><br/>3) Use a higher temp for a shorter amount of time (400-450 for 10-15 minutes...be sure to check them until you know the right amount of time for your specific oven.) <br/><br/>4) If you have problems with chips browning evenly rotate your cooking tray/sheet and/or flip the chips halfway through your cook time. <br/><br/>5) You might also benefit from preheating your cooking tray/sheet 5 minutes. (I just put mine in while the oven is preheating and I'm chopping.) <br/><br/>Hope this helps. Snack on!

I took the advice of others and cranked up the heat to 400 and baked them on the top rack for 13 minutes and they still weren't crispy. My potatoes were super thin, so that wasn't the issue either. Oh well, I ate them anyway as they sort of tasted like french fries. Would highly recommend using sea salt on them prior to baking.

If they are not crispy enough, turn up the oven and back closer to the element. Its a basic recipe for potato chips. This isn't rocket science. Don't cook in the microwave unless you want a dried out shriveled up potato. A microwave can dry out any vegtable and make it crunchy, doesn't mean its worth eating.

For a nice crispy result, try soaking the potatoes in ice cold water before cooking. This will allow the starch to rinse out and prevents that sogginess after frying or baking. Works great with homemade chips & fries!

These were good and easy to make. The kids really liked them and I liked the fact they could have chips! I do not buy commercial chips because of the fat and salt content. Thanks.

These were so so. The cooking temp and time needs adjustments. I think this has potential but needs to be thought out a little more.

This is a great recipe. I have a huge weakness when it comes to potato chips. I love that it's simple, that it's a lower calorie and healthier choice than regular chips. I will be making this again for sure. I can't wait to try other seasonings as well.

These just didn't get crispy. They were either soft or they were burned. I would still recommend people to try them because the cheese-garlic topping is delicious and addicting, but expect something closer to fried potatoes, not potato chips.
