Olive oil is recommended for medium heat and under because it will break down faster under high heat, it has a pretty low smoking point. Coconut and peanut oil are better to use with high heat in general.

You want to avoid cooking with oil at high temperatures as much as possible anyways, because heat causes a chemical conformation in the structure... basically, when it's heated and then cooled, some of it changes to trans fat, and no one wants that!
