I found that a mandelin works the best, but be carefull it is really sharp. You can also bake the potato for 20 to 30 minutes so they are no so hard and they slice easier. Hope this helps.PJ.

The first thought through my mind was to use a Mandoline. That's what I'm going to try.

Do you have any suggestions regarding how to thinly slice sweet potatoes? I find them so fiberous as to be difficult to slice.
