Depends on what kind of olive oil you are talking about.
Extra-virgin has a very low smoke point and thus can burn very easily--it's not so good for cooking with, it's mainly used for low- or no-heat applications, like making dressings or sauces. It would not be good for high-heat use like sauteing.
On the other hand, refined aka "light" olive oil has a high smoke point and neutral flavor and is ideal for most cooking tasks.
>>7365967 Say you want to decide between light olive oil and sunflower oil, which one is better? I think it is dependent on what you are trying to cook but I am a beginner so would love to know when to use each.
