I get the LouAnna brand of coconut oil at Wallie and cook with that. I think olive oil can be used if you are sauteeing, but not high heat frying.

I use Spectrum non-hydrogenated palm oil for a solid shortening, macadamia nut oil for a liqiud and butter. Lard is also a good choice. I also have cold expeller pressed coconut oil and the plain stuff coconut oil. Boy, I have a lot of fat!

However, you can't get olive oil too hot or it will break down.

I used to think it was too but now I use coconut oil (virgin and expellar pressed) and rice bran oil almost exclusively. I don't even buy olive oil anymore.

I'm interested to try palm oil. I meant to order some with my last Tropical Traditions order but forgot. That one is definitely next on my list to try.

I use butter exclusively for pan searing meats, clarified in most cases. Oil wise, prefer Peanut/Olive/Canola/Vegetable in that order. Peanut Oil seems to tolerate the higher heats in my wok so that is used most.
