Oil is made up of a number of organic compounds.  If you heat it slowly the 
compounds start breaking down at their indivdual boiling points, the basis 
of fractional distillation.  If you heat it quickly by dropping it into a 
hot pan, everything reachs temperature roughly simultaneously reducing the 
breakdown of the oil into component compounds.
