A well-stocked kitchen should have a variety of cooking oils available so you always have the right oil for the job, but many cooks keep only a couple of oils on hand that they're familiar with, like vegetable, corn or olive oil.
The good news is oils don't cost much to try out, they can sit around for years without going bad, and they add the flavor your dishes have been missing!
I love the flavor almond oil adds to cakes, and vegetables sautéed in sunflower oil are pretty darn tasty, but my favorite non-basic oil is sesame oil because it works so well in both sweet and savory dishes, and a little dash goes a long way.
This chart created by myfitnesspal breaks down fourteen different types of cooking oils available at the market today, so you can make an educated choice and expand your horizons in the kitchen.
