A basic mandoline can turn just about any root vegetable into delicate, thin chips, perfect for snacking, and gives you control over the ingredients (potato or sweet potato?), method of cooking (to fry or to bake?), and amount of salt. And at $0.40 per ounce for a bag of Lay's original potato chips vs. $0.05 per ounce for russet potatoes, you'll save a bundle as well.
