In this dialogue, I think it is clear that the woman said there is no cooking oil left!
I've consulted dictionaries to find "not that I know of" a veru confusing phrase. It has at least 2 meanings: "so far as I know, the fact is not like this" and "so far as I know, there is nothing."
Could you think of other examples of its usage?
