# Thread: Does olive oil evaporate?

1. ## Does olive oil evaporate?

If I put olive oil+tomatoes in a frying pan, and lightly sautee them, the smoke I see coming up is purely water vapor? Does olive oil lose calories when you cook with it?

2. It's a myyyyystery oil!!!

I don't believe it does. The water evaporating is from the tomatoes, not the oil.

No, the smoke you see is the olive oil burning away. No evaporation.

8. Yeah, but in an odd way it can.

Therefore, we arrive at the logical summation that cooking a tablespoon of olive oil for ten minutes would yield 1000 calories.

at a high enough temperature, it should evaporate.

I don't know about it losing calories or not...I always add the full amount of calories from the amount of oil used in cooking
