Battle of the Oils


Olive oil, Pure Wesson oil(soybean), or Mazola(corn)oil.
Best to use for cooking?


I use coconut oil. It is believed that coconut oil retains its goodness even at extreme heats.


Ditto coconut oil


Frying - either peanut or coconut oil

Seasoning - olive oil


I've heard macadamia nut oil is good too although I've never personally tried it.

Coconut oil is just awesome. Gets me salivating when it starts heating up.

I would use olive oil to drizzle on top of food.


Ditto. Mainly use it for baking. Otherwise I use PAM for frying. Although interestingly enough I noticed they sell coconut spray now. A little expensive though.
