Following up to Matti Lamprhey

Hmm. I don't think olive oil will stand up to the high temperatures
which are often associated with deep frying. I wouldn't use it for
chips, f'r instance.

Its smoke point is 210C Sunflower oil 200C Corn oil 210C.
Rapeseed and Grapeseed have slightly higher smokepoints but all
are OK for deep frying. You might of course like or dislike the
taste imparted, which is not typical for english chips.
