Yes there is loads and loads you can choose from, if you havent got any books have a look on ebay and buy some so you will have more of an idea, Best one for you to buy is a recent updated syns directory.

Sounds good, just bought one off ebay for £3.69 that includes postage, any ideas on flavours would be great. xxx Loobylou:D
Smigget.... If you scroll 9 posts up this thread you'll find the recipe which mechmanuk kindly posted.
I always use garlic salt on my microwave crisps.
Love it!

Fantastic, crisp maker ordered, ive also bought the latest book as advised. Just hope it all works.

Thanks to all for the advise and please post some more if there any other nibbles to add.

Just adding this in because....

I found this earlier, and thought a few of you would find it interesting, because I know you have these crisp makers.
when you say.... That free foods used for something else have to be synned...does this mean if i use potatos to make what i thought was syn free crips using the microwave crisp maker....theyre not??

No they're not syn-free. However, syn them and they're only 3½ syns for 28gms which should make quite a few crisps (far fewer than a bag of crisps).
I'm a big believer in moderation in all things, so a few of anything like this is not going to have much effect on your weight, it's when you get to making loads of them and eating them in preference to 'proper' food that the problems begin.

The person who answered this question is a slimming world consultant on another forum.
