Peanut oil is usually best for frying, but anything with a neutral taste and high smoke point will work (canola, grapeseed, or safflower are great).

Yes, you do want a high smoke point and grapeseed would be my first choice. After that canola.

That sounds wonderful, Ronna! Like ChefOno, I prefer either butter or refined peanut oil. In fact, I fried some breaded chicken cutlets in peanut oil the other night because I had some handy and they were delicious.

I've been using rice bran oil lately for pan-frying b/c of it's high smoke point, neutral flavor, and health benefits, and have been perfectly happy with it.

Everybody..Thanks so much. So heres what I did. I four pork loin cutlets which I pounded and then breaded using two different techniques: 1. flour-egg-crumb and 2. egg-crumb. Then I fried one of each in butter (ala Milanese) in one pan and peanut in another. I preferred the crispness and the dryness of the peanut fried cutlet that had been floured-egged and crumbed. We ate them with tomatoes and rocket and lemon. I also fried some sage leaves with anchovy paste sandwiched between the leaves and dipped in a simple flour-water mixture of Marcella Hazan.
Thanks to everybody for your insights and opinions. Chris that chart is a keeper.
Chef Ono, I know what you mean about Canola Oil and that is basically why I posed the question.

I vote for peanut oil. It was One of Julia Child's favorites as well.

Ha! Ha! and OMG!
After all that! Turns out that the flour I used to dredge the cutlets was Trader Joe's Buttermilk Pancake Mix that my sister had put in a container. Fortunately I didn't give the two "winners" much of a dredging but still...
