How to Make the Perfect Potato Chip Slideshow

Slide 1 of 8
Keep It Thin

The most important part about a potato chip, and one reason why it became such a popular hit in 1853, was because it was thin and crisp. To get the perfect consistency, it’s recommended to slice your potato 1/8 of an inch thick. This can easily be done using a mandoline, but if you don’t have one on hand, there’s never a bad time to polish up on your knife skills.
