Reduced Fat Potato Chips

If you're curious about how reduced-fat potato chips are made, and perhaps want to try the process yourself, this patent application is surprisingly plain-language, and includes helpful instructions. Their example calls for fancy equipment and esoteric fats, but there's no reason you couldn't do the same with olive oil in a conventional oven.

Note that this was devised by General Foods (now Kraft Foods), and neither General nor Kraft is known for good potato chip brands. I'd imagine the superb Cape Cod reduced chips (I really like their new "Waves") are manufactured via a different process.
