Crispiest Potato Chips

['1 1/2 pounds russet or purple potatoes about 1/8" thick (a mandoline helps)', '1/2 cup distilled white vinegar', 'Vegetable oil, about 8 cups', 'Salt, Nori Salt, or Paprika Salt, for topping', 'medium heavy pot', 'a deep-fry thermometer', 'a spider or slotted spoon']

Slice 1 1/2 pounds russet or purple potatoes about 1/8" thick (a mandoline helps). Place in a large bowl, add cold water to cover, and stir to release starch; drain. Repeat until water runs clear. Return potatoes to bowl; cover with 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar and 6 cups water. Let sit at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. Drain; pat dry.
Fit a medium heavy pot with a deep-fry thermometer; pour in vegetable oil to measure 4" (about 8 cups). Heat over medium-high until thermometer registers 300°F.
Working in 6 batches and returning oil to 300°F between batches, fry potatoes, turning occasionally to cook evenly, until golden brown and crisp (oil will have quit bubbling), about 5 minutes per batch. Using a spider or slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined wire rack. Season with salt, or Nori Salt or Paprika Salt.
