"Cold oil hot pan, food won't stick" seemed to be the Frugal Gourmet Jeff
Smith's mantra.  I've never forgotten it.

My memoery of his mantra is:

Hot wok . . . .cold oil . . . food won't stick

I buy into Bear's description of the success of this adage.  Oil becomes
much like creasote when slowy heated to high temps in a deep fryer.  Makes
sense that small quantities can distill out and plasticize pretty quickly.
