stainless steel and cast iron suck for eggs. heard this pan is good.

Yes I heat up my stainless steel for cooking eggs. Helps tons. But not always and not perfect. Looking for something better.

love ceramin enambled cast iron. much better at distributing heat. Get it hot, only use oil/butter on one part. Drop the egg, lower the heat (or turn it off). The egg won't spread, and won't overheat

I use a glass pan. It heats up fast and no chemicals/iron from the pan is getting into your food.

ANY pan will work if you are cooking your eggs in enough fat. If you like a fried egg (over easy, over medium, sunny side up) you should cook them in a generous puddle of oil - some chefs use an inch of oil, get it very hot, and once the egg hits that it essentially floats and cooks beautifully.

Like @Matt 11, I have no problem with non-stick pans if they are properly used. The BEST pan of this variety is SCANPAN, hands down. I cook with everything, I have a huge collection of great pots and pans, and if I had to keep only one skillet it would be my ScanPan. Perfectly nonstick, but you can brown meat without ruining the nonstick finish. I've tried the new ceramics, and they all stick w/o oils. Scanpan is perfectly nonstick w/o oil! (I swear I own no stock in this company - it is just a GREAT pan!

Hi, cast iron is excellent but you have to develop a natural film of fat on it that keeps from stick but to really get it there takes a couple of years, but i think there is a way to cure it the first time you use it and get it going. I have a couple, I learned by watching the way my mom used hers. Beats the poisonous teflon ones!

I just got a ceramic one, was only about £15 and works great. Apparently you're not supposed to use any fat with them but I ignore that and use butter anyway. I notice the egg spreads out much more, I suppose the ceramic might be better at distributing heat hence it's uses in aerospace applications.

Hard to beat non-stick/teflon pans for eggs. Yes, I know… THEY'RE TOXIC! (No, they're not.) Don't burn your PTFE (or PTFE-replacement) and you'll be fine. There's some nice ceramic pans out there too (e.g. Ozeri Green Earth).
