What type of oil do you guys use?

I would rather have something on the healthier side.

Thanks

    Stick with Canola. (Peanut is good, pricey, but good.. But then there's several people with peanut related allergies).

      For home use I use Canola. If you're doing it commercially, you may need one of those blended oils that don't break down as fast at high temps. I like to keep my temp @ 165.

        OOOPS! I meant 365 degrees. Here's a web site on everything you need to know about oil. http://missvickie.com/howto/spices/oils.html
