2 questions really -

1. What oil do you use for an all-purpose cooking/frying oil? (not deep frying)
2. How much do you pay for it?

I've decided to finally start buying organic cold-processed oil and I bought Spectrum organic extra virgin olive oil, which is okay, but I paid $9 for 25 oz. Is this a decent price? Are there better options out there? I would actually prefer canola but I heard that olive oil is healthier. Thoughts on that would be helpful as well! Thanks!

Um, well I use animal fats or coconut oil for frying or cooking. I try to use olive oil only unheated or sometime lighty sauteed.

Hi. We just started using organic oils, too. I just found this website yesterday on another board. It has coupons for foods we eat, including oil.

olive oil is not the best choice for cooking. it is wonderful for light saute and cold uses.

we use grapeseed oil for most of our cooking. we also bake with palm oil, fry with coconut oil.
