    Depends on what you cook. I use olive oil for the taste but rarely cook with it. I use canola for cooking at lower temperatures and peanut oil for cooking at high temperatures, such as for stir-frying. Rarely, I will flavor with sesame oil.

    Olive oil is generally not good for frying. I normally use sunflower oil.

    Supermarkets cheapest oil, labelled as vegetable oil , is normally rapeseed oil (in UK anyway), which is very healthy , close to olive oil for composition of saturated fats etc.

    I always cook food with olive oil and mustard oil as they are very healthy oils.

    I only use grapeseed oil to cook with. I have many olive oils, some extra Virgin olive oils, which are too delicate to use during high heat cooking. Regular olive oil is good for low temp cooking.

    I prefer to flavor my food with olive oils, not cook with them.

    Olive oil is my go-to - rarely use anything else unless canola to deep fry on rare occasions and to wipe down non-stick skillets or bbq grates.

    Just a basic vegetable oil for general frying.

    Maybe a basic olive oil for more delicate cooking.

    I use olive oil as well. When I go to restaurants or even at home I pour in on my bread often times too. I use vegetable oil as well.
