You have a lot of options for cooking oils. Some are better at certain temperatures, others are best with certain types of food. The folks over at MyFitnessPal have created a chart that helps you pick which oils are best for what kind of cooking you want to do.
MyFitnessPal's chart goes through the best oils to use for different types of cooking, then details what types of cooking uses they're best for and some extra nutritional information. For example, avocado oil's great for searing meat and has a good amount of vitamin E, while sesame oil is best for low-heat stir fry but doesn't have much in the way of vitamins. As we've pointed out before, you should have a lot of different oils in your kitchen, so this chart helps you use them right.
