comment What oil to use when cooking steak, and what difference does it make?
Olive oils have a wide range of smoke points depending on their quality. Your standard quality extra virgin stuff burns between 300F and 350F, much too low for frying. If you shell out for the good stuff you're fine, but for those prices who's cooking with it? seriouseats.com/2014/05/…

comment Order of combining wet and dry ingredients when baking
I think that's why you normally see batched inclusion of dry into wet when using a stand mixer. It'll produce a different consistency, but that doesn't make it bad.

Extra virgin olive oil has a very low smoke point, meaning it's very easy to burn. Burnt oil smells and tastes bad, and may even catch fire under the right conditions.
