Best High Temperature Oils To Cook With

I get a lot of questions about what oils are best for cooking. Here is a breakdown of what I like to cook with and the benefits of each oil.

Rice bran oil:

  • Full of antioxidants, and rich in Vitamin E.
  • The smoke point of 490F good oil for frying.
  • Also good for your skin and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Grapeseed oil:

  • Very High in PUFA Omega-6s, Especially Linoleic Acids, good for hair skin and nails.
  • The smoke point of 420F


  • Not likely to affect people with dairy or casein intolerance.
  • High smoke point of 482F.
  • Rich in oil soluble vitamin A & E
  • Supports healthy digestive track
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Make sure it is made from grass-fed cows, goats or sheeps

Coconut oil:

  • Rich in Lauric acid (a fatty acid that can kill viruses, bacteria, and fungi)
  • The smoke point of 350F

Olive Oil:

  • Good for low-temperature cooking (simple sautee)
