    What a great question. Each type of cooking oil can differ depending on to what extent it has been refined, or processed; so this should be a consideration when defining the smoke point for individual cooking oils. The amount of refinement changes the durability of the oil. In essence the more refined, the more heat a cooking oil can manage. But, in general here are a few smoke points for some of the more popular cooking oils:

    Canola: 225F unrefined
    Canola: 350F semi-refined
    Canola: 400F refined

    Corn oil: 350F unrefined
    Corn oil: 450F refined

    Butter: 350F

    Lard: 361F - 401F

    Grape seed: 420F

    Flax seed: 225F   

    Peanut: 320F unrefined
    Peanut: 450F refined

    Rapeseed: 438F

    Safflower: 225F unrefined
    Safflower: 320F semi-refined
    Safflower: 450F refined

    Olive: 320F unrefined
    Olive: 406F xtra virgin
    Olive: 420F virgin
    Olive: 468F xtra light

    Soy: 320F unrefined
    Soy: 350F semi-refined
    Soy: 450F refined

    Also, packaging on store bought oil should have the smoke point for the contents noted on the labeling. But, I hope this helps you for now.

    Have a great day!
