The other option is not impressive.
While the bottle/brand shown in the listing is impressive looking and would make a great gift, the other option, Massimo Gusto, looks like a cheap Mexican knock-off.
I will admit that I haven’t had the chance to taste the oil yet, but honestly, if I saw the brand in the grocery store, I wouldn’t have bought it.
Perfect Hostess Gift
Excellent avocado oil
I have tried extra virgin avocado oils from California and New Zealand and this Mexican oil is every bit as good and at a much better price.
The oil is clear and has a buttery feel and subtle flavor. I use it mostly for stir-fry because of its very high smoke point (higher than refined coconut, grapeseed, peanut, almond, safflower), but it is also perfect in dishes where the peppery fruitiness of olive oil may be too overpowering.
Amazon offers a very good deal on this oil. I just placed two more orders.
Great product. Highly recommended.
A word about the seller (Kalamala): I have already submitted a 5-star feedback for this seller, but I wanted to let prospective buyers know that the two 1 liter glass bottles arrived in perfect condition. Kalamala carefully wraps each bottle in bubble wrap and adds packing peanuts to the box for extra protection. See the photos I posted.
Great Product + Great Customer Service
Massimo Gusto Avocado OIL
TRY THIS IN HOMEMADE SALAD DRESSINGS. I HAVE PROBABLY BOUGHT TEN BOTTLES AND JUST PLACED ANOTHER ORDER. QUICK DELIVERY AND PACKAGING IS BULLET PROOF.
Great Product at a Great Price
Great buy on a healthy oil
Massimo Gusto Extra Virgin Avocado Oil, 1 Liter Bottles (Pack of 2) ) because it’s cheaper.
It is great for deep frying. You can get the oil really hot so things cook quicker and are less greasy when done. I’ve done battered flounder, potatoes, mushrooms and beer-batter onion rings, all with great results. I’m kind of new to the deep fry, I’ve avoided it in the past because the oils are generally not very healthy. Avocado oil is healthy, like olive oil, but you can’t get olive oil hot enough to deep fry without smoking up the kitchen and making the oil bitter. No problem with the avocado oil. Highest smoke point of any commercially available oil. I’ve had it up over 450F with no smoke at all.
I also make a balsamic/garlic/herb vinaigrette, and I made it with this oil. It was very good, better, IMO, that with olive oil.
So far, the only thing I’ve with it that I didn’t care for was aioli. There is a butterry-sweet undertone to the avocado oil that didn’t belong, and there is a tangy aspect to olive oil that was missing. So, I’ll be sticking with olive oil for the aioli.
The price for this or it’s plastic-bottled equivalent makes it possible for me to make it a regular part of my cooking. At the local grocery stores, most don’t have it, and if they do it’s like $16 for a 6 to 8 ounce bottle, so I just never tried it before, though I wanted to.
I hope this company will keep the quality up and the price down. If they do I’ll be a regular customer. Seriously, in the next month or two I am buying a dedicated fry pot and some more of this oil, and I’m going to start deep-frying on a regular basis.
Please with Purchase
The oil arrived well packaged! No danger of breakage here!
I love the taste of the avocado oil and have used it in cooking and salad dressings. The best thing I have used it for is making a focaccia-style flax seed bread. It added a nice flavor that the recipe needed. It is also very nice for sauteing vegetable in a stir fry.
The price through Amazon was no worse than good quality olive oil.
Best All Purpose Cooking oil!
I’ve ordered it 3 times so far. Each time the bottles were a bit different, and I liked the addition of the spout thing, but I was sad to get a clear bottle instead of the darker ones- the darker bottle protects the oil from sun damage better. I’m hoping the next batch I order (because I will be ordering more) will have the darker bottles again.
LOVE THIS STUFF.
