Not that this answers your question but there a machlokes between American Poskim and Eretz Yisrael poskim regarding which oils are kitniyos. In America they are more mekel regarding certain oils.

That's right, cottonseed oil is used in a lot of snacks here, since the CRC follow the psak of Tzelima Ruv Z"L that it's not kitniyos. In Israel they follow the psak of the Minchas Yitzchok that it is kitniyos.

Those aren't great source for halacha. There have been many issues with that including claims of forgery and misrepresentation. Discussed elsewhere.

The Leon Ruv of Lakewood said that this year you can Turn it up to the highest heat then pour hot water and cover it with two layers and youíre good for Passover

What's the deal with covering sinks and counters that can be kashered and are kashered? Chumrah D'Pesach? Does one have to cover it?

Brief summary of Rav Chaim Meir Roth Shiur 4/3/2020
1)Self clean makes oven kosher lpesach.

2)Counter is enough to cover with thick plastic-No hot water needed.

3)Sink is enough with insert-No hot water needed.

4)Garbage cans should be on the street. Bleach should be poured on chumitz gumir in the garbage cans.

5)No sreifas chumitz this year.
No private fires ! Itís an aveira
Throw in the toilet
Flush in the toilet a kizayis chometz instead of burning.

6)If you donít taste anything you canít make a bracha -You should be yoitze from another.

7)Remember to make Eiruv Tavshilin.

2,3- many don't want to cover or have difficulty finding a covering that will hold up and be easily removed after pesach. We advised that irui roschin without an even meluban is sufficient ( in general, people do not do even meluban correctly according to the MG"A brought down in the MB who says that plates with flower designs you cannot do even meluban since the stone isn't flush)
4- even if you'll get a ticket? Pouring bleach or any poigem should be sufficient. If the garbage can belongs to the township R Shmuel Fuerst said it's not a problem regardless. Enen if they're yours, any poigem should be like charcho kodem zmano

5- not sure why you can't just burn it safely in a BBQ grill which is made to burn things...
