Place sliced potatoes in large glass bowl and cover potatoes with cold water. Move potatoes around in the water with your hands to rinse the starch from the potatoes.Dump out water and repeat rinsing with cold water until water in the bowl is clear and not starchy.
Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat to approximately 300°F. Working in batches to avoid crowding the pan, add potatoes to oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove with a fine mesh strainer or fryer scoop/skimmer and place on paper towel-lined sheet pan.
Lower heat to medium. Place once fried chips into pan, working in batches. If the chips brown right away, oil is too hot. Cook for 30-45 seconds or until chips are just starting to brown. Remove with a fine mesh strainer or fryer scoop/skimmer and place on paper towel-lined sheet pan. Sprinkle with sea salt.
