About Crisco®

For all the ways you cook and bake, Crisco helps you create memorable moments with your family and friends.

Since its introduction in 1911, Crisco has revolutionized the way food is prepared and the way it tastes. From being the first shortening product made of plant based oils and oil seeds to creating the first cooking oil that was promoted for its light taste, Crisco has been making life in the kitchen more delicious for years.

Crisco brings to mind homemade, down-home, and traditional meals. It is recognized, comfortable, and trusted across generations, yet it is simple and unadorned. It brings about a certain pride in meal creation and attainable excellence in cooking.

More recent innovations include Canola, Corn, and Natural Blend oils; Crisco Baking Sticks for baking ease; and alcohol-free No-Stick Cooking Sprays. We're proud of our past and look forward to remaining a key ingredient in kitchens everywhere.

Crisco brings variety: from baking to grilling; from American to Asian; from simple salads to a complete home-cooked dinner; from scratch baking to a convenient shortcut. Crisco is also a versatile ingredient that adapts to your cooking style.
