I never consume butter, but we use coconut oil a lot in cooking. The only thing to keep in mind is that it will impart a distinct coconut taste to whatever you cook in it. We also use walnut oil. We save our olive oil for things like salad dressings. In our house, we use oil sparingly in cooking... we'll maybe wipe a pan with a tiny bit of it, or wipe down our grill with a little to prevent sticking. So I'm not sure if something cooked in a big pan of bubbling coconut oil would taste good or not.
