Today was a rough day. It started at 11 pm last night with a phone call to come to work at 3 am. So after 4 hours of sleep I arrived at work. The first 4 hours were fine, the other 8 were not so great. I make kettle chips and the burner on one of the fryers would keep going out in the middle of the cook cycle. Those chips had to be thrown out. We finally got it running right at 11 am. Everything went well until 2 pm. One hour before quitting time. The potato slicer stopped up, and there were potatoes all over the place. I got that mess cleaned up and started production again. Than the centrifuge burner went out. This is how we get the excess oil off the chips. So all those chips had to be thrown out. They were still working on it at 3 pm, when I went home. I hope tomorrow is a better day. At least with all the problems, I held my grazing down to a minimum:).
