Hack for how to reheat chips without them going soggy goes viral

A fish & chip expert from the UK has given some of her top tips on how to reheat chips so they remain crispy and fresh.

"The biggest reason chips go soggy when reheating is moisture," the expert said.

"Potatoes are full of moisture that escapes when reheated, especially in a microwave or oven where the steam can’t escape." 

The expert knows a thing or two about chips, her fish & chip shop is award winning in the UK!

"When it comes to reheating make sure the chips are dry first and foremost. Use a kitchen towel to pat them dry or you can use salt to help draw out any excess water," she continues.

"Reheat in such a way that the water can escape. The perfect way to reheat chips is to deep fry, but frying them in a skillet can work just as well, use a very hot pan with a little oil."

"The key to crispy leftover chips is to start dry and cook on a high heat – or just eat them all in the first sitting!”

So there you have it, next time you end up with a few spare chips in the fridge some of these tips might help to restore them to their crispy state.
