Tips for the Best Homemade Potato Chips
- Be sure to slice them evenly – and thinly. Use a mandolin for the easiest way to get even sliced potatoes.
- Don’t skip the water soak. You want to remove any excess starch so they fry up nicely.
- Keep an even frying temperature to avoid burning the chips. Allow the oil to return to temperature between each batch of potatoes you put in.
- Dry the potatoes to remove excess moisture before frying.
- Do not over crowd the chips in the pan while you are frying them.
- Do not stack hot chips on top of cooled chips.
- Sprinkle toppings while the chips are still warm.
How much oil is needed for making potato chips?
The oil needs to be 1.5 inches deep in your pan. For my 10 inch pan I used just a little less than half of a 61 oz bottle of Peanut oil. It will vary based on the size of the pan you are using to fry in.
What are the best potatoes to use for homemade chips?
Potatoes that are fresh, firm and not sprouted are a must for making homemade chips. You can use either russet potatoes, red potatoes or Idaho potatoes.
Why do you soak potatoes in water before frying to make chips?
It is important not to skip the water soaking step. This step in the chip making process removes the sugars and starch from the potato and makes them fry-able. If you skip this step you will end up with soggy, uncrispy chips.
Why are my homemade potato chips greasy?
Leaving the potato slices in the oil too long when cooking will make them greasy. Be careful not to leave them in the oil when cooking for too long. When the potato runs out of moisture inside while cooking this will cause them to become greasy.
What is the best oil for frying potato chips?
I personally prefer using peanut oil, I like the flavor that they get however you can also use canola oil.

What to Serve with Homemade Potato Chips
You can serve your homemade chips with virtually any dip – or none at all! Depending on the flavor you add, you might just find yourself eating these by the handful with no dip at all.
If serving these for a party, I’ll usually add a dip or two. A few of my favorite chip dips are:
