Urban said:well, if you must deep fry, it's far better for you than vegetable or corn oil. I made potatoe chips in it last week, and they were damn tastey. FYI, olive oil has a reasonable smoking temperature, but virgin and extravirgin (TWO hymens) have low smoking temperatures and are therefore NOT suitable for cooking.
