    Followed this recipe exactly, and half of them burned (burned beets are seriously nasty), the other half didn't cook enough (perfectly even slices). Going back to deep-frying, as it may not be healthy, but it works.

    These are amazing! I didn't cut them thin enough, but now I know for next time. They took a lot longer to cook and weren't crunchy enough, but had a fabulous flavor. I will definitely make these again!

    I didn't have two medium beets, but I did have four small beets. However, even using all four I didn't get many chips from this recipe, certainly not enough for four people. The ones I did get turned out quite good, almost like sweet potato chips. Also, perhaps I didn't bake long enough or perhaps I added too much oil before baking, but after an hour the chips became soft and pliable. It was worth the test run.

    Hello, I followed the recipe but they ended up being soggy, the edges where crisp but not the rest of the chip. Cooking them longer only makes them taste burnt and not crispier, what can I do?

    I am wondering if the beets are boiled first. Do you slice them raw or after boiling?

    I'm kind of surprised other commenters found this time consuming... I prepped and slided the beets in under 5 minutes and the majority of the cook time was in the oven. Such a great way to use the beets we get each week from our CSA share. I'll definitely make these again!

    These are very tasty, but they are a lot work and the end you end up with two handfuls of chips. The beet slices get reduced to about 2/3 their size while baking. I was really disappointed to see this was how they turned out.
