Which Cooking Oil Should You Be Using?

There’s an oil for everything. But which oil should you use for this thing?

From avocado to walnut, it seems like everything can be used to make an oil. This provides with us with a plethora of options, but not all oils can be used for all things. Just ask someone who tried to use coconut oil in an iced bulletproof coffee (totally wasn’t me…. I mean, what?).

Finally, there’s a quick and easy guide to using the most common oils in our pantries. You’ll see that some have lower smoke points, which means they are used better at low heat, while other can be used when you’re in the kitchen, wrist twistin’ like a stir fry.

Not sure which oil to use? There are many to choose from, so choose the one best suited for your culinary adventure.

Oils are used in nearly every recipe, so you’ll always have them in your kitchen. And now, you know how to choose the right ones! And there are health benefits to each – just take a look at this light reading.
