Oils for Deep Frying

Fine Cooking Issue 71

The best oils for deep frying have a neutral flavor and a smoke point higher than the temperature at which you’ll be deep-frying (which is usually 375°F). Good choices include peanut oil, safflower oil, and corn oil, all of which have smoke points above 400°F.
