Easy and tasty. I used olive oil and my slicer sliced them a bit thicker, so I had to use my convection setting to get them to crisp.

Made these the same week I tried microwave potato chips from this same site. The oven chips cooked unevenly and were far greasier than their microwave cousins. My vote goes to Uncle Bill's microwave chips, even though they're time-consuming (because only small batches fit into the microwave).
