There's so many! i never know what to get.

I use olive oil the most when cooking. With baking I use canola oil. Canola oil because it doesn't alter the flavour of taste when baking. So when you use it, it doesn't dry out the cake (keeping it moist) and it doesn't have any flavour in it either.
There are healthier options of oils like coconut oil and ghee (which I use when I'm making rotti).
It just depends how many gallons/litres do you use of it, what it's used for, the particular food you plan to cook it with, the expense and if you want the healthier option.
I use coconut oil. It's suppost to me much healthyer and you can littrely use it for everything, even to wash your hair. Just use about a spoon or two for frying stuff in a pan, or rub a little bit into your cake tins, and I think it makes amazing roast potatos. I wouldn't recromend it for deep frying though, I would use either sunflower oil or something similar.
Hope this helps!
Extra Virgin Oil. xx
I like using butter, olive oil and canola, though, pumpkin seed and sunflower oil are also very good for cooking.
Olive oil usually leaves a taste. Vegetable oil and Canola oil do the same thing, though Canola is better for you.
But if you don't what oil to use in a frying pan, you can always use butter. It works good for nearly everything. Sometimes, it even works in the water.
You can pretty much use any oil for anything, vegetable, canola, peanut, and olive oil are okay. If you wanna saute something you can still use a little bit of any in a pan, I personally like to use olive when I have it. And some oils have a distinct like sesame seed oil which tastes nutty, that are used for certain things for the taste. Things like lard or crisco are mainly for frying, except you can bake with crisco too.
In my cuisine we use olive oil most of the time. But then again I'm Mediterranean.
I use olive oil most of the time.
I ask my brother the chef.
But EVOO is good like 85% of the time for most things.
olive oil (not extra virgin), coconut oil, or clarified butter for cooking
never used peanut oil. but it does have a high smoke point and neutral flavor which make it good for cooking
I can t cook to save my life man
I like Olive or Avocado oil to cook with.
Depends on the meal. I mostly use seame oil, grape oil, olive oil, and others...
My go to for cooking is olive oil.
I find olive or canola work for most things.
Only way I remember it is by if it says extra virgin oil it means it's for salads.
I always use Vegetable oil
I use vegetable oil.
Tbvh, i can't cook. This is one of the skills i have yet to learn but we use olive oil.
I use olive oil the most. It doesn't smoke until a relatively high temperature and it tastes good. If I need a lot of oil for deep frying, I'll definitely get something cheaper like corn oil. Peanut oil has a higher smoke point than most so sometimes that if I want to cook hot. Sesame seed oil gives Asian cuisine is Asianness. I use a lot of various infused oils for flavoring touches.
Most probably use one based on the price and what they're used to using culturally. Non saturated fat is more likely break their molecular bond at high heat which turns into a free radical and can cause issues with cells and even potentially cancer. Also high amounts of omega 6 (which is the cheapest and therefore used in industry processed foods mostly) causes inflammation which is a precursor to disease in general. Saturated fat was demonized years ago based on contaversial science but not many question the world heart associations obviously. The only oils I have is olive and coconut. I use oil mostly for cold recipes like dressing or low heat. I also eat avocados, flax and nuts so I don't use the oil.
Light olive oil is for high-heat cooking.
Extra virgin olive oil is pretty great all around but not for high-heat cooking. Definitely the best one for vinaigrettes and as a finishing oil tho. Great for cold dishes and salads as a dressing. (also healthiest over all if I remember correctly)
I think peanut oil is mostly used in Asian cousine, not much experience with it.¨
Corn oil is largely used for frying.
Coconut oil is mostly for desserts in my opinion.
Vegetable oil is a pretty good all around cooking oil that doesn't have a very strong flavor of it's own.
Canola oil is basically the same as vegetable oil but healthier if I remember correctly.
Sunflower seed oil is healthy option for searing and sautéing things.
Sesame oil is for low heat frying and some Asian dishes.
I use EVOO for most of the stuff I make. For mayo I'll use just regular olive oil. If you use extra virgin the mayo becomes bitter when you emulsify it. I also use coconut oil for a few things. Buy the refined coconut oil cuz it doesn't taste like coconut.
It's a matter of preference and what you are doing. Just got to practice your tastebuds
Sunflower for example is a very mild oil so you use that for dishes where the oil shouldn't be too noticable. Coconut oil is usually good for Asian dishes, but should never use it for a steak. So on and so forth.
Cold pressed oil is the healthiest, I usually prefer olive soy and vegetable oil, but Sesame, Peanut and Sunflower oils are great too.
Smoking point of the oil i. e the temperature you want to cook at is the main decider.
Flavour is the 2nd point
Usually it's smoke point
If you want to use oil for salades. Use first press olive oil - which is meant to be consumed cold not cooked
For cooking it depends on the smoke point. So if you want to sear a steak. Do not use first press olive oil as it will burn at a very low heat. You want a more robust oil such as grape sead or canola oil. You can raise the temp high and the oil won't burn quickly
Other than that it comes down to taste. Neutral oils vs others with flavour
I always use olive oil.
Only ever use Olive Oil, except for a few things that do better with butter (like mushrooms!)
olive oil for most things but you fry in canola oil
I use the recipe.
Vegetable oil for lighter things and baking. Olive oil for heavier things.
Hmm I usually use canola oil or avacado oil
i like olive oil
Olive oil and then that Asian oil I forget what it's called. It's in the Asian section of the store.
I use olive oil mostly
As a chef, plain vegetable oil is best for pan frying and sauteing, roasting (or you can use duck fat).
Olive oil is really strictly only used for salads and marinades etc.
