    the oil best to use (in all cooking actually) is coconut oil. its more expensive, but doesnt go rancid in high heats like most oils. (and it makes food taste so much better!) olive oil is a cheaper option and can still handle heats fairly well.

    bang on dude!!! saturated fats are the most stable and the least likely to be damaged by heating (polyunsaturated are at the other end of the scale- tendency to turn to trans fats). some nutritionists even recommend using butter over oils for this reason (Ian marber is one who springs to mind ("The Food Doctor")). since coconut oil DOESN'T have a negative impact on LDL cholestrol levels in the body (depsite what some prats continue to state, even though there is NO EVIDENCE AT ALL TO SAY THIS THE CASE) , then using it over butter would be better still.
