Not a family favorite We expected chips to be crispy, two batches later they were not (even with increasing oil), flavorless. Pros: Quick to prepare Cons: Everything else

I thought it was awesome they used a *real* pan instead of a brand-new shiny reflective one bought for the sake of a picture. Kind of goes against commercials where they show you fake hamburgers instead of what they really look like when you buy them! Keep the picture! Also...the recipe is delicious!

Tasty Taters, but I agree with a previous reviewer, it may be time for a new pan!

Great recipe! Have to say the photo is very unappetizing though.
