    Price, smell, flavor. Extra-virgin is what you get after the first press.Extra virgin olive oil has a light flavor and aroma, and is better used for dressing and dips than for cooking. Regular oil is the product of multiple presses, with a bolder flavor and stronger olive aroma. It's a good cooking oil for anything that's 'mediterranean' style.
