I'll disagree.

My partner is Korean-American and her family is from Korea.

Both she and her family use "toasted" sesame oil to stir fry and sautée with.

They also use it in marinades and things.

But they use sesame oil like I use olive oil.

I use toasted sesame oil and chili sesame oil to add to a marinade and in addition to peanut oil when stir frying. I never ONLY use sesame oil to fry.

I like to add a few drops to my homemade wonton soup after plating. Added to eggroll and wonton filling also and in some dressings.
A small amount goes a long way to kick up the flavor.

I have been gawking at various types, toasted, unrefined, dark, chili infused, etc.. I get so confused I end up not buying any of them!

I just want it to make a fakeout-takeout, or would it be a takeout-fakeout, Chinese meal from time to time.

Thanks B
I like TJ toasted sesame oil.

Also House Of Tsang and Ka-Me brands.

Nope, same reaction to either one. Just watched one a week or two ago where that was a primary reason for the chef using it being chopped.

It can be easy to overdo it, that's for sure.

That's a good idea. I'm going to try adding a few drops next time I marinate some cucumbers.
