Stop Cooking with the Wrong Oils! | Serving Up Science

Season 3 Episode 303 | 4m 08s

Not all cooking oils are created equal. With so many options available -- from coconut, to vegetable, to olive oil, and more -- what’s a home chef to do? Sheril explores characterists of cooking oils and offers solutions to this cooking conundrum. When it comes to what we do in the kitchen, selecting the right oil is about temperature, taste, and impact on health.
