      I rarely use it, tastes too much like coconut, not a must flavor in many of my dishes. I also seem to have a rather explosive digestion with refined coconut stuff like coconut milk ... I think i can live without ...

          Love the stuff. My favorite is the smell it gives when I season my cast iron pans with it.

          Have not tried it as a moisturizer yet, but might just start doing that soon.

            I love it for frying eggs and fish. It's regular use seems to have spiked my LDL, not that it worries me, but I need to look healthy to the system so I've replaced with homemade tallow for now.

              I love it if I need cooking fat for eggs, fish, pork or chicken - and I always lick the spoon, lol. But there are so many yummy flavors and excellent nutrients in the plant and animal world that I try to switch it up as much as I can.

                I like to use the strongly flavored coconut oil in place of butter on things, such as vegetables, as like a butter substitute. It has a nice flavor.

                      I don't like the taste of coconut oil, so I use the one that has mildly had its flavor removed. I use that one all the time for cooking. Does anyone know, if coconut oil has any beneficial effect on skin problems? Rosacea in particular. My boyfriend suffers from this.
                      I think I'll start slathering it in my face. My skin gets so dry after showers.

                        I have heard that coconut oil is great for skin ailments such as rosacea and yeast infections! Definitely give it a try! Nothing to lose, everything to gain!

                            Hmm?

                            The way you season a cast iron pan is by oxidizing an oil. The oxidized fat turns into a glass-like sheen to provide that awesome non-stick finish. Coconut oil is one of the most oxidation-resistant oils out there since it is almost entirely saturated fats. Good choices to season a cast iron pan are flaxseed oil, safflower oil, soybean oil and canola oil because they break down so rapidly and oxidize so completely. It's a sin to use coconut oil to season a cast iron pan!

                            I had to nitpick there. If you refuse to buy those fats, you could use a refined olive oil, though it won't be as effective. I use cheap olive oil and get modest results. They'd be much better using flaxseed oil or safflower oil, but I won't buy them.
                            Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                              Why not cheap-as-hell soybean oil? Since you're completely oxidizing -> polymerizing the fat, where's the harm in using it to season a cast iron pan?
