A mandoline or a hand-held slicer will quickly turn out thin, even slices of sweet potato, although a sharp knife and a steady hand will also work fine.

We love these. So much better than sweet potato fries ... because they are thin and crisp up perfectly... rather than thick and soft. I don't even have a mandoline. I just cut thin. Plus, the spices are perfect! Love!

Everyone of mine burned. They weren't in the oven more than 5 minutes.

Cook the chips a little longer than the time stated (be sure to keep an eye on them as to not burn them) and turning more than once to insure a dryer and crisp chip. Then remove as to not burn them and place on a wire rack to cool and crisp a little more. I like to season them with a little cinnamon and cayenne.

Not crispy but they tasted good. I baked them for 11 mins on one side, 8 mins on the other. Watch closely, they burn easily.

Mine weren't very crisp either, but sweet potatoes are good any way you fix em, in my book!

I've read where people blanch the sweet potatoes to help get them crispy (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/378235). You also might try cutting them with a mandolin to get them a bit more thin. I LOVE sweet potatoes

I found these to be rather delicious - I love sweet potatoes in any form! Mine didn't get particularly crisp, but I've stopped expecting that of sweet potatoes. They were a wonderful accompaniment to a turkey burger!
