Do microwave chip trays actually work (ie cook oven chips from frozen in 7-8 minutes)

Posted 9th Oct 2013
As per title - do they work, and do the chips taste nice, or soggy? Found conflicting reviews on amazon, namely:

It takes much longer than stated and even then chips are soggy and awful. You might as well put the oven on, cook them properly and end up with something worth eating.


This product is fabulous. Heat the pan empty in the microwave for 2 minutes, put in the oven chips and time for 7-8 minutes - turn over halfway through. I thought the chips were beautifully cooked and the process a lot less expensive than heating the main oven and waiting for 20-30 minutes for the oven chips to cook.

guess it will depend on the size of the chip and how much it has been pre-cooked before being frozen
Av been using one of these for a few years in a combination microwave.. It works great for me. Although primarily for chips it cooks everything you put on it faster.
Stick em in the oven for 10mins more job done. Blinking microwaves
Confused! Do you heat the pan with microwave or with combination oven settings please? I thought you couldn’t use microwave without putting food in it first...

sounds dumb dumb but I’ve never had a microwave combination before.... Thank you...
