Transporting cooking oil

Hi all.

I know this is going to sound extremely silly but I plan on taking a 5l sealed unopened bottle of cooking oil in checked baggage.
This is because cooking oil is bloody expensive at the destination that I am heading to.

Is this allowed in checked baggage?

There are usually warnings when checking in that you cannot take flammable substances. Is cooking oil flammable?

The FAA site (https://www.faa.gov/hazmat/packsafe/) indicates cooking oil is acceptable in checked baggage - see the chart found at the link.
