I always make my own oven chips by peeling potatoes and the slicing them and putting them on an oven tray with oil. Even though I put cooking oil on the tray they still seem to stick to the tray. Any advice please?

line the tray with baking paper. That's what I do with all my oven baked stuff and it also saves washing up

What oil are you using? I find using spray oil on a pizza pan keep it from sticking

Spray oil, or cover the tray with that foil lined baking parchment before putting the chips on.

Once cut, rinse them thoroughly in water and leave to dry on a tea towel. I've never had another sticky chip since I was given this tip. Apparently it's the startch..? I don't know if that's true, but the rinsing solves it so I'm not too fussed!

non stick baco foil is brilliant.

Baking paper works well (its coated with silicone).

I use baking paper to stop fish fingers sticking. I save all the scraps and off cuts, because let's face it, fish fingers are tiny.

Yes always use baking paper. It crisps them up too!

Pre heat oven 10 to 15 minutes along with an oiled baking tray. It should be very hot. Meanwhile soak the chips in a bowl of water. Drain and pat dry thoroughly, carefully spread the potatoes on the baking tray then back to the oven.

Works well for me.
