If you'll just answer the basic question ... what type of cookware are you using ... and describe what you are doing - we probably could help you! As long as you want to play 20-questions ...
i'm using a cheap stainless sauce pan (it looks like a little pot with a handle on it), i'm turning the stove on medium, heating the pan, throwing in a bit of butter, then putting in the eggs and stiring them with a fork.

they will not scramble on low 1/4 temperature.

If you make eggs a lot, get a non stick pan. You don't have to get a $160 All Clad, just go to a store and you can probably pick one up for $12. And get some olive oil too. I could never make fried eggs very well till I used olive oil. That stuff is like WD-40 for eggs.

I have to admit that I don't consider scrambled eggs to ever be a "health food" - lol!!! Regardless of the pan type, LOTS of butter is my key. Whether one of my stainless steel pans or nonstick, eggs come out fluffy & buttery - & dry, which is the way I personally like them (can't stomach gooey eggs), but that's up to the cook.

The amount of butter used does depend on the cookware. For nonstick I use approximately 1 tablespoon of butter for each egg; for stainless I double that amount.

The butter itself doesn't make the eggs "dry" - the amount of butter just allows me to cook the eggs to the dryness level I like without them burning.

Bang, those look like my pans. I didn't pay near that for them though. I'm sure I didn't pay more than $30-40 at Kohls.
