    Cool

    I use Rice Bran oil. It has one of the highest smoke points at 490*, is very mild tasting and is great for stir frying and deep fat frying. Check it out!

    Olive and grape seed for high temps.

    Canola oil for my paper shredder and sometimes for higher temps.

    Coconut for massages. Before I got married I went through a lot of it!

    I just read through 33 posts and finally,somebody had mentioned Avacado oil on post number 33.
    I just bought my first bottle of Avacado oil yesterday and was trying to do a search on how and what to use it on. I realize that even post number 33 is dated back in 2012 but this might be interesting to kick start it again.I did read that it is good for your heart and eyes.

    Low grade olive oil and rapeseed oil for frying, but only if I don't have any duck fat or bacon fat on hand. Currently have 6 kilos of duck fat in the freezer so it will be a while.

    Occasionally I'll use coconut oil for Asian cooking.
    Don't drink out of ornamental ponds in Tiergarten. You will get sick.

    I remember when the food Nazis demonized coconut oil to the point that movie theaters stopped using it for popcorn. Theater popcorn has not been as good since. Now it's at or near the top of the list of healthy oils.

    Just wait long enough and any oil you choose will be or have been healthy. I use peanut oil and olive oil mostly, but occasionally use bacon grease or butter.

    Check out post 35. He does. I never ever have used duck or goose fat.I am not sure I would like it. My first try at eating duck was a disaster and haven't liked it since.

    Animal fats (from properly raised and fed sources) are way healthier than any trans fats or hydrogenated wanna be oils. So there's that.
