What kind of oil (vegtable or corn oil )
Please use blended vegetable oil, pure corn oil, sunflower oil,
soybean oil or grapeseed (canola oil) because these oils have a high
smoke point. Peanut oil is not recommended because it greatly
impacts the flavor.
• Oils should never be mixed when deep frying.
• High heat, water, and burnt food particles break down the oil’s smoke
• Replace oil if you notice:
- Excessive smoking at normal temperatures
- Strong oil discoloration
- A rancid smell
- Excessive foaming around the frying food

Why can't you use olive oil with Cuisinart pop
We just bought a replacement Cuisinart popcorn maker after our 7 year old one died. Was surprised to see the note about not using olive oil in the manual since that's what we have always used. Apparently the concern is that olive smokes at a lower temp than other oils but it's always worked fine for us in the same model cuisinart. We like the richer flavor and health benefits -- we don't need to add butter when we use olive oil.
