Avocado oil is the newest trend in healthy cooking. The oil has the highest smoke point of any natural oil. Oil smoke point is the temperature which you can heat an oil before it starts smoking. Avocado oil can go beyond 500° F before smoking which makes avocado oil much safer to cook with. To break it down in laymen's terms, anything you cook with oil, you can cook with avocado oil. You can find avocado oil in any specialty grocery store and most regular grocery stores as well on the oil isle.
