Soon after I started using my Paderno vegetable slicer to cut sweet potatoes into curls, I bought an oven crisper pan. This thing is great. Instead of drenching the slices in hot oil to fry them, I just put them in a bowl, add a bit of salt and olive oil and stir until the slices are lightly coated.
The capacity seems to be two medium size sweeties. I put the pan in the oven at 400F and let them bake for about 10 minutes, then flipped them with a spatula every five minutes until they looked done.
The slices shrink a lot, because the water gets baked out. The photo above shows what two sweet potatoes look like after baking. My wife and I ate all of them so I made another batch from two more sweeties. We ate that, too. We could have gone for thirds, but became concerned that our skin would turn orange.
Clean up is easy — wipe it with a moist paper towel.

I use all three of these tools frequently, and certainly paid more for them individually. The pot-handle and hard plastic scraper are wear items and will eventually […]

Multinational companies have used the no-nonsense methodologies of Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma to oil a smooth-running operation for years. What is it? Six Sigma (and its offshoot, Lean Six Sigma) apply the principles of science to business, teaching managers to methodically target waste, maximize output and streamline the flow from producer to consumer.
