No taste, smells a little burnt
This coconut oil is NOT Extra Virgin which means that the coconut taste is gone. No problem, I bought this to use in my hair with my flat iron. I have used Extra Virgin coconut oil in the past and love the way it makes my hair feel and smell. I also use the Extra Virgin in place of butter on my toast.
When I used this particular brand in my hair, it smelled a bit like campfire smoke. Not fond of that smell. I might just use this up for baking because there is no taste.

Good, but different
This is a good quality coconut oil. However, for some reason it takes a little longer to fully melt than the brand I previously used. It also is kind of "grainy." I Think that there are coconut fibers left in it. If this is in the description, I missed it. I think I might go back to the old brand since I use it for Oil Pulling and I prefer the smooth, easy melting of the other brand.

No taste coconut oil is good for anything.
I use this organic product with no taste for any cooking needs as well as skin care and oil treatment for my hair. I can scent it if I want. I use it to remove makeup. There's nothing better I could put on my skin or (occasionally) fry food with.

Just what I wanted
The benefits of coconut oil without the flavor. Nothin' against coconut flavor, mind you, but I don't care to have it in everything I saute.

5's across the board !
Our whole family loves Jarrow coconut oil. We use it in place of butter and for sauteing veggies , etc... The flavor is mild and light and it feels good to know you are doing yourself a favor while enjoying your foods at the same time.

Great for Cooking!
It's easy to find Coconut Oil but not so easy to find Coconut Oil WITHOUT a coconut flavor!! Although we use Coconut Oil WITH a very subtle coconut flavor, when I'm cooking, I'd prefer NOT to use one with flavor. This product fits the bill and is fairly priced.
I only wish it was in a GLASS jar.

Didn't like the taste
I like my coconut oil to somewhat have the smell and taste of coconut. I use it as a replacement for butter in hot cereals etc. This had an unpleasant taste and no smell.
I like the Swanson Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil much better and will order it next time instead.
I will use the Jarrow for other purposes.

Really like this
I do lots of things with coconut oil, put it on my face as moisturizer, eat it for heathy fats, bath in it. Give my scalp and hair nice treatments.

This is my new butter. This one is great if you have company and they are not used to have their food saute in coconut oil. Really great and people cannot tell the difference and so healthy.

This is a great product for cooking or topical use; it has no "coconutty" flavor or odor as do the extra virgin products. Unfortunately,as with everything else, it is becoming more expensive quickly.

A staple in my kitchen. I use in my kitchen as well as homemade deodorant. It's unscented so I can sneak in my baking when a recipe asks for vegetable oil.

Great Product for Frying Foods Also.

Great Cooking Oil!
I purchased this product because I wanted my entire family to shift towards a more healthier lifestyle. They're not really into the strong flavor of extra virgin coconut oil so this was the next best option in order to gain the benefits that coconut oil has to offer. It's a big hit with my family and we use it with everything.

I use coconut oil for cooking. This brand is organic and costs much less than any other coconut oil I've seen. It smells and tastes so good. Haven't tried it in my baking yet, but that's next.

This is the best priced coconut oil I have found. I like the neutral taste because I use if for cooking and as a butter substitute as well as in other foods that don't need a coconut taste.

Good for cooking. Great value.
Good price and works well for cooking as a replacement for butter or cooking oil.

Great moisturzer and tasting
It is a very great deep conditioner for natural hair and moisturezer. I use it for food too. It was great tasting as well.
I am glad I chose it because it has a very huge size container lasting for few months if you dont use a lot of it. Usually other cocount oil is in small coainter that last only one month or few days. It is worthy money!

ONE OF MY FAVS
I use this after shaving my legs, after being in the sun and I keep a seperate container in my pantry for cooking.

Neutral taste, great price
This is a great product for cooking because it has no taste of its own, but enhances the flavor of whatever ingredients are in your recipe. You can even use it mixed with olive oil as a salad dressing, and it will stay liquid at room temperature. Swanson's has the best price I've found anywhere, too.

Won't buy this brand again
I have used several different brands with no problems. This particular one had an "off smell and flavor", almost like smoked salmon - with an "best used by" date of 2012. First item I have ever returned for a refund!!!
