Peanut oil sold in Asian markets is less filtered so has a stronger peanut taste. When you open the bottle and get a wiff, there is no mistake what kind of oil it is. American made peanut oil is neutral in flavor as it has been filtered to take out the smell and taste.

I guess I am an oil queen. I use rice oil for my deep fryer. It does not smell and the food comes out tasting clean. Maybe your oil was a little rancid since the smell won't go away. Try boiling some vinager or mulling spices.

Just did this today and it worked FABULOUSLY!! Fried lots last night and today the house smells HORRIBLE!! SOOO I brought to the boil and then simmered on the stove one sliced lemon, one sliced lime, an inch of sliced fresh ginger and about 4 broken sticks of cinnamon. Left the house (pot attended by family member of course!) to shop. Came home about 1 hour later to a WONDERFUL SMELL of my potpourri! NO smell of cooking! YES!!
