This^.

I used to cook chicken breast in pan on stovetop & cooking wine added just a hint of flavor, plus the salt is fine with me-
and I have no use for a bottle of (proper/real) wine sitting around since I don't like the taste of wine by itself.

If I'm cooking with red or white, I just use some from my wine cabinet. But I do keep a bottle of cooking sherry in the cabinet. Sometimes a tablespoon is all that's needed to give a gravy or soup an extra kick and I'm mindful of the salt so I cut back on that. I have one of those signs in my kitchen that says "I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food"!

If you can't drink it don't cook with it.

Use real wine. Some goes in food and the rest to drink

Cooking seafood like mussels with wine is a must. Not only does it kill parasite and bacteria, it also enhances flavor and the richness of the sauce.

I use the same wine I drink. Cooking wine is just garbage. You don't need to spend $$$ on wine either.

I've mentioned before on this board--buy a small, 8-10 oz bottle of wine & use it for cooking--drink or discard the rest. Few dishes call for more than a cup of wine. Keeping a bottle of jug wine in the fridge & using it for cooking periodically is just as bad as using "cooking wine". Unless it's a fortified wine like sherry or brandy, it will go bad in just a few days.

This.

Cooking wine is to wine as military music is to music.
