I don't think it matters where it is from. I love fish, my wife on the other hand hates it, so you would think she'd pick up on that smell long before I do, but she doesn't. And neither are some other folks I have cooked together in the past. I do not know how or why it is, but it just is that way. It stinks to me.

I know that my parents have GI problems with canola, I don't. I use peanut oil for deep frying and canola for pan frying.

I kept using canola for the fry daddy and was just unhappy about my fries. Decided a change of oil was a good thing to try and yeah, they got better.

There are only two oils in my house:

Canola oil for shallow frying ... which I don't do too much of and never deep fry.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil for everything else.

Your avatar...The Lady of Shallott...nice.

I've decided to add a new oil for light frying and where I don't want a flavor to my dressings...grapeseed oil. Nice and light.

I use grapeseed oil and flaxseed oil.


Grapeseed oil is Highest in essential fatty acid, Linoleic Acid (Omega-6) and Low in Saturated Fats high smoke point good for frying.


Flaxseed Oil - Oil Pressed From Flax Is Incredibly Rich In Both Omega 3 And Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids If It Is Freshly Pressed And Unrefined. These Two Essential Fatty Acids Are Important For Immune System Development, Digestive Support, Healthy Brain Function, Soft And Smooth Skin, Circulatory Health, And Anti-Aging Benefits. Good for salad dressings, smoothies and uncooked.
