    Sesame oil need not to be refrigerated, just store it below 25 degree C or room temperature. Keep it away from strong odorous materials and direct sunlight.

    I've never refrigerated sesame oil, and have not had problems leaving un-refrigerated. I only buy small bottles which is easier to use within a relatively short period of time (month or two).

    Sesame oil does not have to be refrigerated. However, like other oil, if the room temperature is too high, it will affect its freshness. For me personally, I don’t use sesame oil often, so to keep it fresh, I refrigerate it and then take it out about 15 minutes before using. There could be some sediment at the bottom but it does not affect the quality.

      I keep mine in the freezer because it takes so long to use it up. A little goes a long way

    I have never refrigerated sesame oil and kept in on shelf for years. I don't use it often but do like the unique personality it gives to whatever you use it in.
