    I’ve tried the microwave thing and they come out tasting like crap. Potato chips need to be fried or baked but not nuked.

    Without any oil, the microwaved potato “chips” taste like semi-dehydrated, sort of rubbery, potato slices more than anything else.
    However, I found using olive oil or butter flavored, zero-calorie, Pam Cooking Spray made the chips a lot better (not super-fantastic but eatable).

    PS: Just like most things in The Real Japan©, these J-List “PRODUCTs OF THE WEEK” are sometimes less than super-fantastic if not downright kitschy-crappy-happy. ;-)
