Olive oil for frying and cooking

Good olive oil is suitable for frying and also for cooking up to 180°C. However, there is a widespread opinion that cold-pressed olive oil is mainly used in the preparation of cold dishes. This is a mistake. Cold-pressed olive oils are also suitable for warm dishes, because olive oil is the only cold-pressed oil that can be heated up to 190°C.

For frying, for example, temperatures of 160° to 170° are recommended. As you can see in our heatability table, this is easily possible with good olive oil. In Mediterranean cuisine, see Italian, Spanish and Greek cuisine, cooking and frying is done almost exclusively with olive oil.

Fry with olive oil, which is most suitable ? We recommend a mild olive oil from our range.
