ISO best oils for frying
 
What are some of the best oils for frying?

oil for frying
 
In general, oils with higher smoke points. Corn, peanut, canola, and several others. For deep frying especially, buy inexpensive oil as you will need a lot of it.

I buy peanut oil for deep frying and extra virgin olive oil for everything else. Not saying it is ideal but I just don't want to try to keep a lot of different oils on hand so it's what I do.

Peanut oil for stir frying.

Canola oil for deep frying.

Light tasting olive oil for sautéeing.

Extra Virgin olive oil and dark sesame oil are for drizzling on flavor, not for frying.

You can use other oils such as vegetable oil, grape seed oil, rapeseed oil, palm oil, corn oil, sunflower seed oil, and on and on ad nauseum, but if you stock every conceivable oil there will be no room in the pantry for other things, like food!

For deep frying, I find peanut oil works very well.

Although I prefer grapeseed oil for sautéing.

I use a vegetable oil for frying. If ever do I do deep frying. So I use only use a minute amount for even frying. And I use Extra Virgin Oil for the table. I prefer to use the oven instead of the frying pan.

I don't buy lard but I do use the fat saved from something like braized pork shoulder.

I use the big container of soybean oil from Costco for deep frying, which I do most every day of the week.
