Grapeseed oil has a clean, light, neutral taste and can be used in almost any dish, hot or cold. It can withstand high heat, up to 485°F. You can store it for 3 months at room temperature (so long as it doesn't exceed 70°F) or longer in the fridge.

BENEFIT: Grapeseed oil is rich in the antioxidant vitamin E, which is often in short supply in our diets. (If you need more convincing, see more of why you should eat healthy fats.)
