    wonderful recipe it was easy and tastes very good with minimal prep time ... when using stoneware like I do, increase the time 5 - 10 min and reduce temp to 375 degrees. Allow the pan to heat up before placing the chips on the pan then start timer. conventional ovens will reach temps into the 500 and 600 degrees and possible more with a more expensive unit, however it does depend on the brand and units of heat available in the model purchased.

    Like the taste of this a lot -- great with dinner. I did lower my oven temp a bit because I sliced the potato so thin (and, yes, conventional ovens do reach 400 degrees).

    The flavor was good, but Challyah is correct. I cooked mine at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, and they were black all the way through when I removed them. After I reduced the heat like she did, the next batch came out well.

    Conventional ovens don't raise to 400° Possibly people should get their facts right before they criticize others??? Good recipe thanks!

    Chaliyah clearly doesn't understand the difference between celsius and fahrenheit. Although, to be fair, the website should probably still be explicit about the measurements used. Whilst it might be an American website, there are a few of us non-Americans on the Internet. :P

    oven temp. is WAY too high. I turned mined down to about 200 and they come out good

    I had a mixed batch - some chips were undercooked while others were burned and some came out perfectly. Thinly sliced chips is the key to succeeding at this recipe and not adding too much oil.

    I cannot get sweet potato chips right, like ever, but luckily these were on the soft side (aka not burned) so I got to enjoy them. I rolled mine in cinnamon and cardamom for a sweet afternoon treat.
