FAQ: Smoking Point

I have heard olive oil is not safe to cook with at high temperatures. Is this true?

Regarding most olive oils, this is true. However, Stamatopoulos & Sons extra virgin olive oil has been tested by The Olive Center at UC Davis (click here for results) and is verified safe to cook with up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Our olive oil has an exceptionally high smoking point which enables it to endure high temperatures.
