    Hey, I'm new to Slimming World and Frylight seems like a stroke of genius. I'm just wondering, as it seems a bit expensive for a small bottle, which type is the most popular and how long a bottle would normally last? Thanks xx

    Mine lasts about a month, so it doesn't work out that expensive. I use the sunflower oil spray.

    I use whatever one I can get, some stores only seem to do the green one (olive oil) and some only do the yellow one (sunflower oil?). Mine lasts for ages, a month or so! I could probably go through 3 bottles of regular oil in that time.......!

    I used to use the sunflower oil one as it was cheaper in Asda. But now the olive oil one is cheaper so I bought that instead and in my opinion the olive oil seems to last a little bit longer and you don't need as much to cover the pan.

    Thanks everyone, I've heard the buttery one is really nice, anyone tried it? I might get a couple of them while they last so long, they don't seem as expensive when they last ages!

    I hate the olive oil one!! I use the sunflower 1! I think it is just personal taste so you might have to try a few to get one you like!!

    I've had the olive oil one for about 3months and its just ran out - such good value for money! And i prefer olive oil anyway to sunflower oil so i would always use that one i think.

    I have only ever used the sunflower one but as when I last went to Asda as I have nearly run out, I thought I'd buy some in ready and the olive oil one was cheaper so I have got that to try.
    I hope its ok, I suppose you don't notice the taste in a lot of things but I hope its ok for SW chips!

    I use the buttery one because it smells nicer :rolleyes: but I have to admit Im a bladdy fool cos it doesnt taste any different and costs loads more. I MUST go and ditch it from my Tesco trolley :rolleyes:

    What is Pam spray like? I appreciate Fry Light isnt great so wouldnt mind trying something else.

    Olive oil fry light for me - can't live without it.

    And If you've not tried it - the Salad light (which is the Fry light salad dressing) cesear salad one is delicious. (Free on all plans)

    ITs £1.99 but lasts forever (not quite, but has lasted me bout 6 wks and i use it all the time)

    i have both, chips need sunflower oil one other stuff olive oil one. they just taste better! sunflower oil can heat up to greater temperatures before burning than olive oil so works in these situations better.

    the stir fry one is nice as well, it has garlic and soy added (amongst other stuff)
