Price of Cooking Oil in Australia


Vision Direct

ai1

We normally buy our cooking oil in about 20 litres at a time, a box of 4 x 4 litre cans of Olive Oil from our local Fruit shop. Our last purchase was at $2.25 per litre, in October 2010, but it is not on special this time, so I am paying $3.25 this year.

Here are some current prices of cooking oil from two of my local supermarkets that I checked on 11th Oct 2011.

The cost per litre is shown on the right, with the cheapest oil at the top. The prices range from $3.20 per litre to $5.60 for Canola Oil and from $3.25 to $14.00 per litre for Olive Oil.

Olive Oil is available in some very different qualities, and I assume the one I buy for $3.25 per litre is not the best 🙂

  1. Extra virgin is the highest quality olive oil classification
  2. Virgin olive oil
  3. Ordinary virgin olive oil
  4. Olive oil
  5. Olive-pomace oil

There is my one, at the very bottom, but what more is needed for frying chips ? I hope it is better than the Canola oil of the same price though…

For special use we also have a bottle of the Casa Barelli Extra Virgin Olive Oil, near the other end of the price scale.
