NOT! Spent too much time this morning preparing the zucchini for making the chips. Uniform slices with olive oil on each one, lightly salted. Bake 2 hours, turn once. After one hour they looked like they did when I first put them in the oven, so turned it up. After 2 hours, some were crisp, many were not. Different recipes give different temperatures for the oven. One says 215 degrees, another 225. Both are too low for my oven. Never before has my oven been that far off from what a recipe calls for. It was too much work for nothing. I hate hearing raves, raves, raves about a recipe that turns out to be a bust for me.

Sounds like your oven doesn't heat evenly, if some were crisp but many were not.

The recipe I tried called for hot oven of 450 and bake for 20 minutes. They were yummy -- but not crisp! Wonder what the secret is?? Low and slow didn't work and hot and fast didn't either.
