adding oil to butter to help prevent burning - why?

Michelle | Jun 9, 2003 08:40 PM

Can someone explain to me why adding oil to butter is supposed to help prevent butter from burning? I understand that butter burns at a lower temperature than oil, but what I don't get is why adding the oil is somehow supposed to raise the temperature at which the butter will burn. It seems to me that the butter will still burn, but now it is just mixed in with oil. Can anyone tell me? Thanks in advance -
