I use avocado oil often.  It doesn't have a strong flavor - you don't really *taste* avocado in my experience.  One of the advantages to using it over olive oil, is that has a much higher smoke point, so for cooking it is more flexible.

I'll use olive oil when I want a stronger flavor, or for sauces and garnishes - but I mainly use avocado oil for the actual cooking.

EDIT: I doubt Gloves makes his own 🙂  It is actually quite common, available at most grocery stores now.

This. 

I use a cast iron pan and the higher smoke point of avocado oil is huge for my low ventilation apartment.

wow  thanks @spacepup,  been looking for a good oil.  is the cost about the same?  and where do you find it??  what about grape seed oil?

In general avocado oil is one of the more expensive oils. I also will use truffle oil on occasion for a more earthy flavor, or as pup said olive oil for a fresh taste (makes a nice salad dressing base). Avocado oil has basically no taste to it, I use it for everything from steaks to popcorn.

I recently upgraded to the ultimate theatre popcorn experience, coconut oil. It gives it a slight flavor, and the signature color. Also always add Flavacol, you can skip the butter entirely. Here's my "recipe": https://toobusycooking.netlify.app/recipes/literally-theatre-popcorn

@Gloves, @spacepupdose avocado oil go bad? and can you use it for frying like french frys or fish?

I'd not use it for frying way too expensive. In my experience it doesn't go bad, though admittedly I use it up pretty quickly.

It's an incredibly high sodium content flavoring. Like, it's super condensed salt. It's literally what theatres use, and is the reason why their popcorn tastes the way it does, and why without it you'll never get the same flavor at home. You need to buy it, trust me. Please go follow my recipe, it'll change your life.
