It is years since I threw out the chip pan, It was much too convenient to stick on the chip pan at night to save time, and it was chips with this and chips with that and Benn junior begging for chips all the time we all soon piled on more weight than was good for us. Also as my downstairs is open plan the carpet and the furnishings used to smell of fat ugh! So I binned the chip pan and solved the problems. We now have chips about once a month and when we do I buy McCain's 5% oven chips which are quite a healthy option as far as chips go and are so quick and easy to cook with no fat fumes or fat smells and nothing to clean afterwards. McCain's 5% oven ... Read the complete review

** McCain 5% Fat Oven Chips ** In place of the normal supermarket budget brand chips that are normally lurking in the second shelf of our freezer I found a bag of McCain 5% Fat Oven Chips. I was going to cook chips anyway and never one to look a gift horse in the mouth I got my scissors and got stuck in. I am not usually very health conscious and had it been me who'd bought the chips instead of another family member the promise of only 5% fat wouldn't have swayed me at all. I judge chips on taste. I know it isn't a popular view but I don't think it matters how little fat there is in something or how few calories if you eat too much of it ... Read the complete review

McCain Oven Chips nearly all contain 5% fat now, and most of the competition are offering about the same. The big 'only 5% fat' logos they display on packets of these chips are really just a marketing thing rather than part of the actual brand. A big 1.81kg bag of these costs £2.44 in Tesco, which I think is reasonable. They're often available on offer too. These chips aren't the quickest in the world for cooking in the oven. The packet suggests that they take around 15 - 20 minutes, which is a little longer than some of the others on the market. I find they take more like 25 minutes myself but then that's because I rarely bother to heat the oven up ... Read the complete review

I absolutely love chips but it has to be said that using a chip pan/fryer in a caravan is never a good idea which is why me and my mate stick to having chips either from a local chippy or to bung some in the oven when we are on our travels. We spotted these in Asda costing a pound a bag and thought we'd give them a go! The Packaging: Bright yellow plastic bag with a photograph of potatoes and chips on there and I'm told that they are McCain 'The Original' Oven Chips and that they are prepared in sunflower oil and contain 5% fat and that they are made from 100% British potatoes and the size is stated (which in this case is 21bs). Other information on ... Read the complete review

I really love to eat chips and when I get the opportunity to have them I prefer home made chips or chips from the fish and chip shop. I don't really like frozen chips but I do buy them as there are times when you need to have food that is quick and convenient and you don't get much easier than popping then onto a tray and putting them in the oven for 20 minutes. Over the years I have actually tried many frozen chips, thin chips, fat chips, crinkle chips, straight chips. McCain, Home Fries, Aunt Bessies, shop's own brand. It is surprising how many different kinds of chips you can buy but none taste as good as home made chips. If I do have to have oven chips ... Read the complete review
