I believe they would substitute the same, as far as measure; BUT you won't necessarily get the same result with whatever you're cooking! Certainly worth a try, unless you need to be sure your food comes out PERFECT for some reason. If you're baking, it might be flat or otherwise wonky...

To substitute shortening with oil is a 3 (oil) to 4 (shortening) ratio. Since the recipe asks for 3/4 cup shortening you will need 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon of oil. Please note that using oil instead of the shortening called for in a recipe in baking items such as cakes, cookies or pastries will cause the items to be more dense (less fluffy).
