Lauren - Interesting. I’ve always heard extra virgin olive oil is the best kind of oil to purchase but I didn’t know the oil can break down over time due to light. Good to know!

sarahluvzveggies - how long does olive oil take to break down? i cook with it all the time and go through a decent sized bottle in 2 months or so. i tend to leave it on my counter as well in a clear bottle.

Ralf - Ah, this is a new Seagate product. I’d love to try it. I use olive oil frequently too Sarah! I wonder if the olive oil already been sent to retailers or is it only directly available through Seagate… I typically buy Seagate stuff from a local health food store.

Shirley R. - Very true about olive oil being mixed with other oils when you purchase the cheapest products – what most people do! Wondering what this olive oil tastes like. Sounds like a great addition to the kitchen!

Louis Camassa - This is the best tasting olive oil I’ve ever used (and I’ve always bought high-quality primo products). It actually tastes like you’re biting into an olive! I haven’t used it for cooking yet, but drizzled on salad and steamed veggies-yummy!
