I use peanut oil because it has a very high smoke point and is low in unhealthy saturated fats. Strangely peanut oil does not trigger an allergic reaction in those who are allergic to nuts. Cooking oil studies by the Mayo Clinic show that Coconut oil is high in saturated fats.

I find the major drawback of peanut oil is it is rather expensive to buy so I reserve it for high heat applications such as baking.
