What is the recommended cooking oil

yddac, Dec 14, 10:39am
to use for cooking chips in a chip cooker. Sorry if this has already been asked.

I just use a generic salad and cooking oil. Some prefer to use the likes of chefade depends on what you like I suppose.

Thanks cgvl. Anybody else got any other preferences.

If you want flavour, use beef dripping!

fisher, if you're still around, why did you switch!If you don't mind saying.

Chefade and Beef Dripping are saturated fats; not cooking oil.
If you're looking for oil with no flavour; enhancing food flavour, then I cant go past Rice Bran Oil.

I use rice bran oil, by far the best and worth paying extra for

I buy in the tin now - better value and use for nearly everything.

Only oil I use is Rice Bran - it's got a high smoke point, so great for deep frying and stir fries, a lovely bland oil so you taste the food not the oil.

Fisher, like elliehen I'd also like to know why you changed please.

Rancid canola oil versus saturated fat.hmmmmKathy complained of swollen eyes and breathing difficulties when using canola. .research showed canola was not the miracle oil it was claimed to be.Don't use the deep fryer often (used it in restaurant with chefade)As long as it is "hot",it's fine with a better flavour.

Beef dripping for really deep frying
coconut oil for low level fat frying (frypan)
