Why You Should Never Reuse Frying Oil
It’s not a good idea to reuse cooking or frying oil. For one thing, heating up oil lowers its smoke point so it will start smoking at a lower temperature the next time it is used. And the longer or more frequently oil is heated, the more HNE it will contain. Most restaurants not only fry foods in polyunsaturated oils, but reuse the oil over and over again. Consider that one more reason to limit your consumption of fried foods.
What Causes Oil to Get Rancid?

Unfortunately, even if it never gets near the heat, oil will eventually get rancid just sitting around in your cupboard. In addition to smelling and tasting nasty, rancid oil contains harmful free radicals and shouldn’t be consumed. The more polyunsaturated fat there is in an oil, the faster it will spoil. For that reason, buy nut and seed oils – which are high in polyunsaturated fat – in small quantities and store them in the fridge. Oils that are lower in polyunsaturated fats, such as like olive, canola, and coconut oil, are fine stored in a cool cupboard.

What Oils Should You Use?

Taking all of this into consideration, here are my recommendations for the best oils to use in the kitchen:
High-heat cooking
For frying, searing, grilling, stir-frying, or roasting, I suggest light (or refined) olive oil, avocado oil, clarified butter (also known as ghee), refined palm, or coconut oil. All have a high smoke point and are low in polyunsaturated fats.
Medium-heat cooking
For gentle sauté, stewing, baking, or braising, any of the above would work fine. For extra flavor, you could also choose a filtered olive oil.

Off-heat cooking
If you're making a salad dressing or drizzling over a finished dish, choose unfiltered extra virgin olive oil, or unrefined or toasted nut and seed oils for maximum flavor and health benefits.

Too much of anything is good for nothing. This holds good for any oil we use!

It is a good idea to restrict oil consumption to two teaspoons per day.

I have learnt to say :nono: to ALL fried stuff served in feasts! ;)

Very informative post. Actually people have some idea about refined oils but they are ought to use those stuffs. In the current scenario, people have started working on the naturally extracted oil which is actually good for health.
