There are so many options for cooking oil on the shelf that it can be very confusing. Peanut vs. Olive??? Here is a break down on what oils to use when. Oils with high smoke points such as light refined olive oil or light virgin olive oil are best for searing and browning. Medium-high smoke point oil such as canola, peanut and soybean oil are good for oven cooking, stir frying and baking. Oils with medium smoke point such as palm and virgin coconut oil are best for low-heat baking, sauces and sauteing. Hope that helps!
