I know about it, but don't use it either. My favorite is sunflower oil.

I've switched to avocado or coconut oil.

No canola oil here anymore. I see the smell and taste thing isn't just me.

I use olive oil for most things, but I like Good Seasons salad dressing mix so for that, I use half evoo and half canola oil with red wine vinegar.

I have never noticed canola smelling of tasting fishy, unless I cook fish in it. It's what I use in my deep fryer, exclusively. Light olive oil for sautéing or pan frying, canola for deep frying, and peanut oil for stir frying.

This reminds me of people who ask me not to garnish their food with cilantro because they think it tastes like soap, so I garnish their dish with epazote instead. It doesn't taste like soap, it tastes like gasoline!
