For the longest I thought because olive oil was one of the healthier oils around it was good to cook with too. Boy was I wrong! Olive oil has a low smoking point which means that it gets hot and breaks down quickly when heated which also denatures or destroys the healthy properties of the oil.
This oil is best used as a dressing and not for cooking.
Here are the 4 top best oils used for cooking according to Everyday Health.
1. Avocado oil
2. Walnut oil
3. Sesame oil
