I use it in almost everything that requires an oil or butter. I've even use it in place of vegetable oil in my cupcakes. The cupcakes are to die for!

We've had wonderful compliments and rave reviews with our Dutch Oven potatoes, or even the meats that are cooked in this buttery favorite -- all cooked over the coals on open fire. What a treat. We now use it exclusively in our bread machine as the sole oil component for perfect elastic bread with full butter flavor.

This stuff can completely replace butter when preparing quite a few things. In my experience, toasting bread in a pan with this oil actually outperforms real butter by tasting better and being less soggy. Also, olive oil is obviously far more healthy for you than butter is.
The only real downside in my opinion when comparing this to butter, is price. Buy a smaller container first to test it. You'll probably end up regretting that though, as I did. I ran out too fast. :)
Most olive oils taste the same to me, but this stuff stands apart from the rest. Thumbs up to the Sciabica family.

This is our favorite brand and type of oil, from dipping, cooking to butter substitute like popcorn. We bought it by the gallon until they discontinued that quantity. :( The price for a gallon was the best deal as we'd easily use it within 6-8 months. It still seemed fresh after that period of time.

I first tried to toast this in a regular toaster on Rudi's Spelt Bread, first lightly brushing the oil on the bread. That didn't work at all, so I gave up. A couple of months later, inspiration grabbed me, and I put the bread in a skillet with the olive oil, right after sauteing mushrooms in olive oil. Voila! Crisp toast, toast flavor, and this olive oil is FANTASTIC on the skillet toast! Totally double yum! =^_______^=
I've been without buttered toast for over two decades, and now I get something even better, and even better for me. It's like Christmas in July to have found this solution to buttered toast that I'd been missing for so very long!

Many years ago we saw this olive oil advertised on one of the food networks and decided to try it. I have to agree with Mr. Sciabica this is the best of all the oils. The flavor is so light and fresh that we use it for almost every thing in the kitchen where oils are used. We have given it to our grown children and they too agree that it is the best olive oil they have ever used. We plan to continue using it for many years to come so please don't ever discontinue it.

I haven't bought butter since I started getting this oil! It gives cakes and cookies a lighter taste and lets the true flavors of fresh veggies come out in sauteing. Not to mention it takes much less oil than butter for cooking.

I tried this on popcorn and it was delicious. I didn't order a big enough bottle so I have to be a little conservative with it until I order the larger one.

This oil will work well,even in dessert recipes without overtaking flavors. I used it in banana bread instead of butter. It turned out great!!

I purchased two bottles of oil over the phone. Thier website was down for upgrades. They charged me for unfiltered oil, even the bottles said unfiltred, however the oil was filtered. Not happy with the service. The oil was good though .
SCIABICA RESPONSE: (This review was intended for our Unfiltered Mission Spring Harvest) Unfiltered Olive Oil will "settle out" over time. After the first few months out of the press, it may appear relatively "clear". I am sorry that you were not 100% satisfied. Please contact us to utilize our 100% Satisfaction, Money Back Guarantee. I'm glad you still liked the olive oil :)

I have tried olive oils from all over the world. This is by far the finest I have found. And it is right here in the USA.

I like the fruitier oils for salads, but for cooking this is the one. I may never use butter again

I buy this by the gallon, and it keeps well - I use about 1 gallon in 6 months.
The flavor is excellent and my family uses it for everything from salad dressing, dipping to cooking. It's my favorite and recommend it to anybody.

This is the most fabulous olive oil I have ever tasted. I use it for everything! My husband has heart trouble and is on a low fat diet, but he can have this healthy olive oil. We can eat quite normally with this olive
