Rated 5 out of 5 by notomarx This isn't the expensive oil but good for cooking.
I also use this oil for oil pulling. I interchange this oil with coconut oil. I like it because it doesn't have the rich sesame oil taste. To get a good sesame oil is very expensive. I use this to cook when I want to add extra oil to my dish. There is a taste but not overpowering.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LadyL46 No sesame flavor at all!
This CANNOT BE SESAME OIL! I just love sesame oil for flavoring my stir-fry recipes. But there is absolutely no sesame smell or taste whatsoever. I won't use it or order it again!!

I bought this after reading the rave reviews. And I was delighted that it's organic. That being said, it just doesn't have the body or rich, nutty flavor of good sesame seed oil. Would not recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Axle2 Can you tell me how to get to sesame seed?
This is a great oil! I've used this in lion's head soup and in a lot of recipes where I've used olive oil.
I refrigerate most of my cooking oils, to slow down them going rancid, like olive oil, and coconut oil, which solidifies most of the time; but this sesame seed oil has yet to do so in the fridge, and I have used 2/3 of it already. That makes it quick to use, where I normally have to thaw the other oils.
As far as taste, it has a light, and indeed nutty flavor, like peanut butter, but only slightly. This oil blends very well with most anything I've used it with.
As far as the container goes, I do not like the pouring cap, because it can pour a little fast, and has left residue behind after use the ran down the bottle and onto the counter.
The price does seem high, but I'm guessing sesame seed oil is not easy to make, and this is organic to boot. On a positive note, a little sesame oil goes a long way.
Overall, with the great taste, ability not to solidify in my fridge, how well it works with cooking, the health benefits it has, and also organic, I am happy with this purchase and would want to get it again.

I've been reading wonderful things about the nutritional benefits of highest quality Certified Organic Sesame Seed Oil, and other natural seed oils. And we all know how delicious Sesame Seed Oil is in certain cuisines. However, I didn't buy this Swanson Organic Sesame Seed Oil to consume for nutritional or culinary purposes. I bought it, because it is wonderful for topical use.
I was buying Sesame Seed Oil from Swanson in a 4 ounce size to mix 50-50 with Apricot Kernel Oil to create my old favorite, my own custom 'Sesacot Oil' that I've been making for about 40 years. I love it for every moisturizing type of application, from after shower and after shave to general face and body skin conditioning.
I found the Apricot Kernel Oil here at Swanson in a 16 ounce size at a great price. So I was very happy to find highest grade Organic Sesame Seed Oil also in this 16 ounce size, so I could come out even, as it were.
This Swanson Organic Sesame Seed Oil is top notch. It fulfills my expectations and needs for my 'Sesacot Oil' concoction. This is really a very good oil. I can tell from its fresh, high quality aroma, feel, and taste, that it will fulfill all of its intended nutritional and culinary, as well as topical purposes. Works for me.

I enjoy using this oil. It has a nice smell to it and goes well with chicken and stir-fry. It also adds health benefits in place of bad oils such as vegetable oil.

I absolutely love, love love, this product! I use it in my home-made raw nut and seed butter as well as on salads. It is the only raw sesame seed oil that has a strong fragrant wonderful taste... and the price is right!

Since a few years ago we started using cold-pressed oils. I'm so happy to find that SWASON carries almost all my favorite oils made this way.
Unlike its roasted version which is overpowering for me, this oil is fresh, smooth, natural, mildly flavorful. It's very good for salads, oil pulling, skin moisture, massage.
It is not easy to go bad if you store it in refrigerator. Mine is still tasty after one year in cold place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Steve25006 Expensive dissappointment
The main reason I like sesame oil is the flavor. This brand has absolutely none at all. If that's what you're after, try a different product.

I am using this instead of olive oil for high heat situations. I have read it is a healthier alternative than olive oil at high temp.
The only thing I would change is that it is in a plastic bottle.
Great price and taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helleborealis Organic goodness,but in plastic :(
Great organic oil with nice lightly nutty flavor, just needs to be repackaged in glass when received. Good for high heat cooking use, and hair and skin.
Sesame seed oil is rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants, good for my skin by keeping it hydrated, moisturized and nourished.

I guess the oil was ok, but putting it in a plastic bottle was a no-no. I won't buy it again, unless you put it in a glass bottle.

More than pleased with the quality, taste and performance of this product! I use it liberally in stir frying, broiling as a marinade... I imagine I will find more and more uses for this oil as time goes on. Thanks Swanson for a real winner here!
