In my opinion, I think it's best to have a throwaway mail on GMail for simplicity. Want to sign up for a sketchy website, or you need to to download something? Use that email just in case they send you verification stuff, or important things. You could always delete the email later. Also, it's a clean slate and you get to use a simple email manager.
But, for security wise, I would have to say the one-time websites because it's a lot less traceable and no data collection.

What would you perfer to use?

For real life needs i use my main gmail account, for not so needed ( throwaway) account i use my spam email instead

For every game account, ( could aswell be a registered antivirus account) Im always using specific email so its unique and wont be shared anywhere
