DoorDash’s red-hot market debut is a lesson in placing orders to buy stocks on the market, according to CNBC’s Jim Cramer.

“It’s true that people using market orders took DoorDash to levels that maybe ... were far higher than they thought they’d have paid,” the “Mad Money” host said after DoorDash shares closed 85% higher on Wednesday than the $102 price in the initial public offering.

DoorDash shares sold for $182 apiece when trading began in the secondary market, a big jump from what the company was valued at in the IPO.

Investors who place market orders through a stockbroker buy, or sell, equities at the best available price on the market, giving up control of making a transaction at a predetermined desired price. Limit orders give investors more control over the transaction price.

“With a market order, you never know what price you’re going to get, which is why I always tell you to use limit orders,” Cramer said. “With a limit order, the transaction won’t go through if the price goes beyond the level you’re comfortable with.”

Cramer’s comments come after the major averages declined during the trading day. The Dow Jones slid 105 points, or , to 30, and the S&P 500 dropped to 3, The Nasdaq Composite tumbled almost 2%, ending the day at 12,

“The averages were holding up fine until we saw where DoorDash was headed,” Cramer said. “That’s when the market rolled over.”

The stock of DoorDash, the leading food delivery company joining GrubHub and Uber on the public markets, closed at $, giving the company a $ billion market cap. Market players valued DoorDash nearly twice the $ billion in the IPO.
