Huh? I have heated dry cast iron in the oven to 500+F with no issues, as well as my LeCreuset dutch ovens on a stovetop to sear meat. I have never seen the cracking issues you describe.

well many people can also say they same about defrosting meat. allowing meat to reach temperatures in the danger zone doesn't mean you will defiantly get food poisoning but just cause it hasn't happened doesn't mean it wont or it cant. this is no different not saying it will happen every time but that it can happen and has been known to happen. personally i spend a lot of money on my kitchen equipment as i buy the very best i just don't like to take the chance knowing that it can happen.

i do it at the same time. if it's possible, but there is no difference, what is important is that oil is hot when you add food.

I put the pan on, light the fire, pour in the oil/plop in the butter. However, it's a Wolf stove and the pan gets to temperature pretty quickly.
