How do you make kettle chips?
Use a mandolin slicer to get uniform sliced chips set at about 2mm. Use a cast iron dutch oven with about 24oz of canola or other high heat oil, with temperature set to about 300 degrees. Blanch chips and then dab dry on paper towels. Raise oil temperature to 350 and repeat. When you remove the chips the second time, salt them to taste. Scroll down for a site with some photos and additional steps for making kettle chips at home.

Why is a watch called a kettle?
A watch is a Kettle in Cockney rhyming slang: KETTLE & HOB becomes FOB WATCH. The old fashioned watch that hung on a persons waistcoat. ------------------ A watch is called a Kettle because kettles are often mistaken for watches. In order to simplify things, watch was later renamed to kettle. This watch/kettle confusion dates back 1963.
