I cook most everything with olive oil. But then somebody said this thing about grapeseed oil. Because of its high smoke point, or something rather. Naive in this matter, I pose the question to you. Grapeseed oil? Please confirm/reject in the comments.

    Grapeseed oil is a thing. I use it instead of peanut oil to do high-temperature stir frying. It has a high smoke point. My current bottle came from Trader Joe’s.

    High smoke points sound delicious. I’ll probably just drink it straight. Thanks for the info, I’ll check it out.
