Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Olives release a robust, fruity oil, so its no wonder why it's the most popular on the market. Though its low smoke point makes it not the best for cooking, it works great as a base of vinaigrettes and batters.
Try it in this Spanish Olive Oil Cake.
Corn oil, too, is a common frying oil, much due to its high smoke point. Aside from being used in fast food kitchens, it's also a good starting point for sautéeing.
Try it in this Turkey Sandwich with Peanut Chile Sauce.
This oil works best with high-heat cooking, which is why the skillet is its BFF. Be sure to use it consciously since it has a nutty undertone.
