Do I need to keep oils, vinegars, and dried spices in the fridge?

venividibitchy | Aug 30, 2010 10:35 AM

I've heard things about "oxidation" and spoilage of oils, dried spices, and vinegars, and that for health and culinary benefits, one should keep them all in the fridge.

Right now, everything except for the sesame oil stays out, but tucked away from light and the heat of the stove/window. I could put them in a cupboard, but I wonder if the fridge would be better?

What's the real scoop? Help appreciated.
