Only some of them are good on salad|
Sometimes I think that there are too many things in my life, or at least, that I should pay more attention to the things that I have. Other times I notice I'm missing something that is subtly different from all the other things I have, and yet somehow essential.
How many distinct cooking oils are there in your kitchen?
I accept that I have a problem
And how many vinegars?
You should come visit my custom vinegar cellar
The oil count does include 2 different brands of canola oil, 2 different brands of olive oil, and my roomie's pam cooking spray. Without those I think the count would be 9. I did not count the open and full bottles of the same exact balsamic vinegar separately, but I did count different varieties of balsamic.

I agree with you on not counting exact duplicates and on counting the different brands of olive oil separately (I have "regular", cheap-ish extra virgin, and expensive extra-virgin myself), though I'm not sure I'd do the same thing with the canola, as I'd treat them as interchangeable regardless of the brand. I didn't remember the cooking spray, though (more useful for its lecithin than its oil, really).
Bah, I forgot the cooking spray and the balsamic, so I just changed my answers.
8 cooking oils if you count the jar of ghee, which I think is totally correct, though I would not also count the various other butters we have in the kitchen.

Home Goods clearance is a dangerous thing.
The actual vinegar count is 8: rice, cider, balsamic, white balsamic, white wine, rose-infused, regular (for cleaning the coffee pot, natch) and another infused one, can't remember if it is something citrus or the
hellfire thai peppers. I know I have oils infused with both, and an ancient decorative bottle of rosemary..something? that's from a farmer's market so long ago I'm afraid to open it.
ok you got me on the rose-infused vinegar...
