Oven chips - what's the secret!

I have no luck with cooking these. Always end up having to pan fry with a little oil.

The nicest oven chips you can get are the McCain Beer Batter Fries they're twice the price of regluar oven fries but worth it I think

Does anyone have the gadget that makes 'curley fries'! Does it work well and if so where did you purchase it! Cheers.

Love Curly Fries. Bit of an addict really.
McCains ones are a product of the USA and the seasoning is shyite.
Birds Eyes ones are a product of Germany and are scrummy, also cut with precision engineering. No surprises there.

Add some beef fat to the tray and roll them around once its melted, half way through cooking give them a shift around on the tray then finish them off.

If you grill them rather then bake them they come up a lot crispier as it lets the steam out

Parboiling them first makes them crispy

Cooking them long enough makes them crispy. Ignore what time it says on the packet.

my brother in the states is supposed to be sending me over a gadget to make them.
Saw at a fair today, a gadget, where you put a skewer thru the spud, it seemed somehoe to slice it into rounds, then it was deepfried, and the rings all seperated. not sure what it is called tho.
