Re: Chips

McCains 'Home Chips'  are very nice,  they are quite chunky and they need cooking

for longer than normal oven chips ( about 25 minutes ) but do end up crispy on the

outside and nice and fluffy inside....

Re: Chips

The nice thing of where I live, is I have a local chippy about 3 minutes walk from the end of my road.

They're really good, though even a small chips they serve you a massive portion, which I struggle with.

I have newsagents there and a local pub opposite. What more could you want? I don't like to call myself "lazy" but "time efficient" sounds a bit better 😀

Re: Chips

All this talk of frozen chips, whatever happened to taking a potato and slicing it up into chips yourself?? How you cook it is up to you (deep-fry, shallow-fry, air-fry, oven-fry, solar-oven-fry), but home made chips are the best, frozen ones are always too dry inside for me to enjoy... 😋

Well it's how we used to make them at one time, sliced and deep fried but crikey what a palaver it was especially trying to keep that deep fat fryer clean. And those chip pan fires!

The old ways are not always the best. Give me a bag of frozen chips from the wide range available.

Sorted. 🍟

Re: Chips

Does anyone here have any experience with those much-advertised fryers that use very little oil and will cook chips and other foods?

Re: Chips

Had one of those.

Worked well enough, the only downside was that it did not get used that often for some reason and was just more bulk to find a home for in the kitchen. A lot of money (at the time anyway) and "not something" to quote the Mrs "I'd buy again".  

Seemed to be a lot of kit... just for chips. 😃

Packed up after a couple of years never to be replaced.

Trouble with those ‘Chunky chips’ is that you are also likely to get chunky if you eat them on a regular basis.

Re: Chips

I like Lidl's thin oven chips because they cook very fast (and of course I like their taste).

Plus if I'm using the frying pan they cook well in that also.

Re: Chips

... and weight for weight chunky chips have less surface area than thin ones so less to cover with whatever oil they're coated with.
