1. Prepare the russet potato. Have a large, shallow bowl of ice water
ready. Slice the potato to a 1.5mm/⅛-inch thickness (a mandoline
is your best friend for this task) and then immediately put the slices
into the ice water. Stir a bit and allow to soak for 3 to 5 minutes.
Drain and then rinse with cold water until the water running through
the potatoes is clear (not cloudy). This process removes excess
starch from the potato slices to achieve a crisper chip. Transfer the
rinsed slices to a tray lined with a clean dish towel or paper towels.
Top with another towel/paper towels and dry well.
2. Line a large microwave-safe plate with two layers of paper towels.
Arrange the potato slices on top of the paper towel-lined plate, being
sure that the slices do not overlap. Brush or spray the tops of the
potato slices with oil, and then sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt.
3. Place the plate in the Cuisinart® 3-in-1 Microwave AirFryer Plus.
Select Microwave, and set the time for 4 minutes and power level
to High (10P). Press Start. Flip all slices and then return to the oven
and microwave on High for 2 additional minutes. Remove and repeat
with any remaining russet slices.
4. While the russets are cooking, prepare the sweet potato. Scrub and
thinly slice the sweet potato in the same manner (preferably with amandoline to a 1.5mm/⅛-inch thickness). Arrange the sweet potato
slices, in a single layer on a plate with fresh paper towels. Brush
or spray with olive oil and then sprinkle with kosher salt. Select
Microwave. Set the time for 4 minutes and the power level to High
(10P). Flip the slices and then return to the oven to Microwave for
an additional 2 minutes. Repeat with any remaining slices.
5. Serve with another sprinkle of salt, if desired, or with the Zesty Onion
Dip (recipe follows).
