Butter or Oil: What’s Best for Your Recipes?

From MinuteFood.

It’s a question I ask myself ALL the time when I’m about to cook something: should I use butter or oil? And the answer is…well, it depends.
There are a few main reasons we cook with fat in the first place: to add flavor, to transfer heat from the pan to the food, and to keep that food from sticking. Butter and oil differ in all three of these jobs, and it basically boils down to what they’re made of.
