What is the boiling point and melting point of cooking oil?

These are "smoke points".
Safflower - 510 F (266 C)
Soybean - 495 F (257 C)
Corn - 475 F (246 C)
Peanut - 440 F (227 C)
Sesame - 420 F (216 C)
Olive - 375 F (191 C)
The exact temperatures will also depend on how pure the oil is.
The boiling point estimates that I've found are pretty sketchy, but a fair estimate for soybean oil (most cheap cooking oil is soybean oil) is about 300 C (or 572 F).
I have started to watch this show and I love it. I checked Funtrivia and there isn't a quiz on this show that I could find, so I figured there should be one and here it is. This quiz covers only season 1 of 'Point Pleasant'.
