question about stainless steel frying pans

i finally got rid of my toxic teflon pan and bought a new stainless steel pan. i heard that food won't stick if you heat the pan up first before adding cold oil.. so i tried that the other day but the food still stuck so i thought maybe i hadn't heated the pan up enough. so then today, i made sure the pan was good and hot before adding the oil.. and the oil started smoking as soon as it hit the pan (and started burning to the pan so now i have to clean it with baking soda and vinegar)! the food didn't stick though but i thought i was going to set off the smoke alarm any second. what am i doing wrong? is there a better way to keep food from not sticking?
