Question: What Is The Smoke Point Of Avocado Oil?

January 14, 2010
I've had avocado oil in salad dressings, but never cooked with it. Does it have a high smoke point like grapeseed? or lower like butter or olive oil?

Avocado oil has one of the highests (if not the highest) smoking points among natural oils, i.e., above 500 oF (around 520 oF for refined avocado oil).
