Cooking oil is an essential ingredient in any commercial kitchen. No matter what you plan to cook—oil takes the forefront in all kitchen activities. Be it for frying, sautéing or using it as an ingredient in creating sauces and dips—oil is the foundation for all your kitchen needs.

But with so many options in the market today it is easy to get confused with choices, making it hard to decide what oil is the best fit for your kitchen.

However when it comes to choosing an oil, the texture, flavour and smoke point become the most important criteria. Oil can influence the texture and the flavour of your entire dish and you need it to be compatible with your cooking style.

Apart from these, you might also want to know your chosen oil’s performance levels—whether it is food safe, whether it is organic, whether it is local or imported, whether it is Halal or Kosher certified or if it has any added ingredients.

All of these questions can be a little overwhelming and to simplify the decision, here are a few bulk oil options best suited to your commercial kitchen.


One of the cult favourites, canola is best used for light to medium frying. Being a super versatile oil with a neutral flavour it can be used in a variety of dishes for marinades, gravy, sauces, margarines, spreads and salad dressings. Although the Cookers canola oil is 100% sourced and refined in Australia, they also have an organic canola oil range which is manufactured overseas.


One of the most popular oil blends from Cookers, XLFRY is locally refined in Australia and is great for deep frying food—think crispy chips, chicken schnitzels and golden fried fish. Boosted with premium cottonseed and high oleic oils, XLFRY not only increases the oil life but improves frying performance due to the reduced gumming. To top it off, it is Halal and Kosher certified making it a great option for heavy duty deep frying.


Olive oil is a name we all know too well, especially for its health benefits. Made from Aussie grown fresh olives, Cookers extra virgin olive oil is not only Halal and Kosher certified but is also compatible with vegan and vegetarian diets. Being cold pressed, Cookers extra virgin olive oil retains its fresh flavour, aroma and nutrients—making it a great addition in salad dressings, dips, marinades, tomato dishes and Hellenic & Italian cooking.


One of the most premium blends by Cookers, ULTAFRY is a high performance frying oil. It is locally refined and fortified with heat tolerant high oleic vegetable oils. This helps to extend the oil life and improve frying performance. This high performance oil is not just low in saturated fats, but also has high levels of the unsaturated fats which are good for you.

The ULTAFRY blend is specifically designed to sustain longer periods of deep frying without compromising on the texture of the food.

Cookers offers a wide variety of oils for different kitchen requirements and it is easy to find a blend best suited to your needs.
