    I bought some peanut oil, and I really like it! I use olive oil for almost everything. What kind of oil do you like to use and why?

    I usually use rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, light olive oil or clarified butter to cook, seasame oil to finish Chinese dishes, extra virgin olive oil as a salad oil and in dressings and I've recently started using cold pressed extra virgin rapeseed oil and find it better than extra virgin olive oil in some cases, and it's produced locally. Walnut oil in some salad dressing too, my girlfriend got nuts about all the different bottles of oils and vinegars in the kitchen, lol.

    Damn skippy!

    But for deep fried goodness... Can't go wrong with canola oil!

    Mexican dishes get corn oil.

    I tried Wesson vegetable oil for frying and I didn't like it.

    one thing I want to try is avocado oil, I heard its great stuff!!! Has anyone tried it?

    Canola oil is known as rapeseed oil here. I've used avocado oil in salads and it's pretty good.

    I feel that the Peanut Oil is better for the large outside Turkey and Fish Fryers. It is readily available in 3 to 5 gal. sizes and has the high burn (smoke) temperature needed to sear the flesh properly. Sometimes I use Safflower or Canola when in the house.

    Extra virgin olive and rapeseed oils are also good massage oils unless you want to use them as a "carrier" oil for an aromatic, then grape seed oil is the best
