Thoughts on Ultrasonic cleaning of chips?

I've used an ultrasonic on chips with a couple different recipes but feel that all results seemed to "change" the texture or feel of the chip making it rough, almost pitted.

I have to say the results are bad and I don't think I'd buy chips cleaned in a US,
All these cleaned by hand. Knew some great cleaners back east.

Curious as to what chips you used an ultrasonic on? I’ve played with some Jokers Wild chips in Florida that were US cleaned and you can see the pitting in the chips.
Leaded Paulsons mind you.

I also would only buy chips cleaned by hand. Had a couple friends who cleaned some of my Pick Hobsons and they came out beautiful.
I know there are others here who share your opinion.

i dont think its necessarily the way that they were cleaned. I clean all my chips by hand, and they also feel a little different until you oil them up and play with them a bit. This is because you removed all the oils, dirt, clay that usually fill those little pits/grooves in. cleaning chips makes them look great but they definitely wont shuffle like they did before you cleaned them, atleast not right away. Even after you oil them they still dont feel quite right. They need to be put in play and dirtied back up a little before they feel perfect.

I dont think ultrasonic cleaning hurts chips if done right. I also dont think it cleans them all that well and thats why I hand clean mine.
