Olive oil is the best for almost everything and is the safest for frying.

We use olive oil for most things but not for cooking chips, i use sunflower oil ...People used to use dripping or half solid fat and half oil for chips, ( some still do ) i was brought up on the latter as were many but that was before the results of health education became known...

Yes Pamela, I don't use olive oil for chips but for everything else. Here in UK, scientists and nutritionists are trying to persuade brits to use olive oil as med diet the best

Rapeseed oil is an excellent and very healthy cooking oil and very versatile, also good for salad dressings.
