Sunflower Seed Oil??

Hi - We accidently picked up sunflower oil instead of olive oil - how is this best used? Is this ok to use for everyday cooking?

I've recently started using sunflower oil. It is a neutral oil, more like canola. The nutritional value is supposed to be very good. I expect to continue using it because I don't believe it has the questions that canola raises about its purity and safety -- as far as I know, sunflower seed hasn't been breached by GM attention. It won't take the place of olive oil, though -- in terms of flavor and cultural status.

Another advantage is that it has a higher smoke point than olive oil. But yes, it does lack the flavor of olive oil.
