    Anyone? Bueller? (I have no idea.)

    Also, is it OK to use vegetable oil and corn oil interchangeably? Aren't they basically the same?

    It's been a while since I had home ec. Thanks

    Ummm . . . I do know Canola Oil is from Canola, also known as rapeseed.

    Do they really squeeze rape seed to get rape seed oil?


    Corn oil is a type of vegetable oil, as is soybean oil.

    When it's labeled "Corn" or "Soybean", that's what it is. When it's labeled "Vegetable" that means it might be either or a mix or any other vegetable oil source, usually depending on what they can find most cheaply at the time it's processed. Sometimes the bottle will state what that mixture is,

    I use canola oil when I want to cook something without adding flavor to it. It is really light.
    When I want to impart some flavor, I use olive oil.

    I use motor oil. Naturally, the fiancee hates when I cook. :)

    If I had my druthers, I'd use bacon grease.
