It has been said using olive oil in modederation is good ,so what the problem with that? However using canola good also. When making dressing for salad's I use olive oil liking the flavor.

I cook w/virgin or extra virgin olive oil. I thought this was the best for a person nutritionally. Please inform me if it isn't @ katsue98@yahoo.com. Thank you & have a nice day.

I cook with grapeseed oil. It is wonderful. It is also good for you. something different, I really encourage everyone to try it.

I use canola oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil (each sparingly) for oiling a pan or in salad dressings respectively--I don't fry, only bake, roast, broil or sauté. Sometimes when baking desserts I will use butter, but I don't bake often, mostly during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season. Most desserts for me are fruit or berries of some sort. Occasionally cheese and fruit.

I cook fish in peanut oil. I tried canola oil but it didn't taste good, can you tell me if it gets rancid easy? maybe that's why it tasted bad

I cook with Canola due to lower in sat. fat. And olive oil, heart healthy. I think about how it act's or looks inside the body. Shortening, when I use it, it is so dang hard to get off a spoon or mesureing cup. After letting hot hot water run on it it still hangs on. I started thinking about how it does that inside my body even if the body temp 98 warm inside it just wont go away and that started freaking me out! So I rarely use it anymore. Olive oil, sit it in the fridge and it hardly thickens. Sit it out at room temp like your body temp and it's smooth again fast.

Olive oil, very seldom canola oil (when the recipe calls for a larger quantity of oil). Also use olive oil and lemon juice to season vegetables. Better than butter!

I use Extra Virgin Olive oil for dressing dishes. I use grapeseed oil for cooking.

MY PANTRY IS ALWAYS STOCKED WITH THREE (3) OILS.... EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, MAZOLA OIL AND PEANUT OIL. THESE OILS WILL TAKE CARE OF ANY TYPE OF COOKING OR BAKING.

THOUGH, WE DO USE BUTTER FOR FRYING SCRAMBLED EGGS AND MAKING PANCAKES.
