1. Assemble the Cuisinart ® PrepExpress™ with the Slice/ Ribbon or Crinkle/Ribbon Cone and the Angled Feed Tube. Slice the potatoes.

2. Fill a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan halfway with vegetable or canola oil. Heat the oil over medium heat until it reaches 350°F. Fry the potato slices in small batches until they are lightly golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Use a metal skimmer or heatproof, long slotted spoon to strain the chips out of the hot oil and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with a small pinch of the salt.

3. Return the oil to 350°F and repeat with remaining potato slices.
