This might be the point of confusion. What we are primarily concerned with here is the creation of a somewhat resilient matrix of polymerized oil and carbon in order to produce a relatively non-stick cooking surface. The interest is therefore not in incinerating (it sounds like) the applied oil/fat into pure carbon.
