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 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.

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

OLIVE OIL TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.

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

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 @ email@example.com. Thank you & have a nice day.

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 with olive oil for everything. I thought it was the healthiest for the body. I only use canola when necessary. I use a spray of canola to grease a baking pan or spray on the grill before cooking. I do not eat butter or margarine. I have my husband using the light smart balance with olive oil and omega 3s.

I use canola oil happily since I learned that the information about canola made with rapeseed and coming from Canada is untrue and is one of many frauds that circulate in emails on the Internet. Extra Virgin Olive oil is another oil I use but mostly in dressings for salad or for cooking Italian dishes. Mixed with fresh pasta and herbs, smothered with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, expensive EVO oil really makes a magnificent dish! Also I have found that canola and olive oil sprays are wonderfully convenient in roasting and for baking. And on occasion, I use walnut oil, which is a terrific ingredient for a vinaigrette tossed with a variety of lettuces, ripe olive slices and whole California walnuts. Delicious!
