Test Kitchen video tips: Storing oils

October 21, 2011 |  4:14 pm


I'm often asked by new Test Kitchen interns why we keep our oils in the refrigerator. Essentially, we refrigerate our oils to keep them fresh and from going bad. Because of their high fat content, oils can go rancid quickly when left at room temperature or exposed to light. Refrigerating them extends their shelf life.

For more information on storing oils, check out the video tip above.
