I use extra-virgin for everything. Buy it by the gallon. The flavor & the health factors are worth the $$ to me.

i feel the same way about rice bran oil. it has a milder taste, a higher smoke point, is MORE HEALTHY, and cost less than evoo.

but as i said, when i want the flavor of the olive oil in the dish, i use Frantoia, exclusively.

Amazon.com: Frantoia Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 2 bottles: Gourmet Food

Thanks everyone for the tips and information on Olive Oils. I think I will just stick to Extra Virgin Olive Oil eliminating the extra bottles of Olive oils in the kitchen.

Good for you!!! I agree - it's SO much easier to just use the best. While the Berio I use by the gallon obviously isn't an artisinal extra-virgin, it's fragrant & lovely in both salads & cooking. I love it.
