I never cared for canola oil. My favorite cooking oils are clarified butter, peanut oil, and grape seed oil.

Avocado oil is out of my budget. Otherwise we would use it more.

It's not just from heating or from being "rancid" as Canola Oil Mayonnaise has that same fishy flavor as I discovered once while ruining a perfectly good (and highly craved) egg salad.

Costco here in Southern California carries it at an affordable price.

I used to use Canola Oil almost exclusively, and used Canola Oil Mayonnaise. Neither I nor my family ever noticed a fishy flavor. It may be one of those things similar to cilantro.

Smoking Points of Fats and Oils:
Based on the above classification, the ideal cooking oil should contain higher amounts of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, with a minimal or no saturated fats and trans fats. Different fats and oils have different uses. Each performs best within a certain range of temperature. Some are made for high heat cooking, while others have intense flavors that are best enjoyed by drizzling directly on food.

The smoke point of an oil or fat is the temperature at which it gives off smoke. The smoke point of oil depends to a very large extent on its purity and age at the time of measurement. A simple rule of thumb is that the lighter the color of the oil, the higher its smoke point. When frying, it is important to choose an oil with a very high smoking point. Most foods are fried between the temperatures of 350-450 degrees Fahrenheit so it is best to choose an oil with a smoking point above 400 degrees.

The table in the following link gives you smoke points and other good information about cooking oils.

thanks, I will try pricing it at Sam's. WE do not have Costco darn it: We live in Walton land. Anything that would interfere with Wallmart is off limits. I am not knocking WalMart by any mans. They have done a lot for the community, and the country. More that many realize, but it does get a little tiring, knowing we are limited because of their presence.

I just bought a liter at Sam's a couple of weeks ago. It's $7.99.

I also use
EVOO but never heat it, raw only for salad dressings and to top dishes.
Organic Coconut oil for certain dishes and stir fries
Butter for eggs

Thanks. I saw Dabur Bottle in indian store. I used to think that it is strictly for hair as some Indians do use it for those purposes. I will use it for cooking. Rohu Fish in Mustard oil was my childhood favorite dish !!!
