What is the boiling point of oil?

Answer

Oils used in food preparation have a range of boiling points, from about 375 F to about 510 F. The boiling point of oil depends upon the specific type of oil that is being heated as well as its specific purity. Crude oil subjected to refining involves a spectrum of different boiling points to extract the various elements comprising it.

Olive oil reaches a boiling point at 375 F. At the higher end of the spectrum, safflower oil boils at 510 F. The boiling point of the different elements that comprise crude oil range from 34 F (liquefied petroleum gas) to more than 750 F (refinery gas oil).
