Ok...I see no need to cook eggs on anything but Non-Stick. Its way easy and easy to clean up.

You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

I do not have "non-stick" pans in my kitchen as I dont care for them. I have a separate cast iron skillet that I use for such as eggs and french toast.

I learned from an elderly cook on my first job how to care for an egg pan. The first rule is to not wash the pan. Let me explain. You do not want to soak the pan in hot soapy water. I wipe/wash mine out with a soapy wash rag then rinse with cold water and dry.

The next thing is to never boil, braze, or steam in the pan. Next dont cook meat in it.

To get a seasoning started on the pan, use pam or other cooking spray later using a combination of butter and veg oil should be fine.

I also find that corn oil does not treat an egg pan well.

After cleanig spraying or wiping with oil is a goog idea. The idea of seasoning in the oven is also a good one if the handle can take this.

OK, I'm going against what others have suggested by saying this.

I'm assuming the pan is stainless steel with either an aluminum or copper bottom or lining sandwiched between the stainless steel.

Your pan is probably too hot. Keep the heat lower than you normally use it. I wouldn't go above a medium heat setting. Be generous with the oil.

It's essential that the pan be absolutely clean and smooth. If you had boiled any water in it, chances are there's a mineral coating in the pan that will cause the eggs and other foods to stick. You need to wash and polish the surface using a stainless steel cleaner such as Bar Keepers Friend, Cameo, or any similar none or low abrasive powder cleaner.

There is no need to season stainless steel pans. In fact, seasoning and stainless steel just don't go together. It is, however, essential that the pans are absolutely clean and smooth.

Try this and all your problems it will be solved [link removed]

Wolfgang Puck's stainless is basically like Emeril's - SS with an encapsulated aluminum disk on the botton.

First - NO - DO NOT try to season it like cast iron - you'll only mess it up and make things stick. As someone noted - SS has to be spotless to be non-stick.

Second - this stuff is a little tricky until you learn how to use it ... it's real easy to over heat it. Keep your temp to medium or below. I usually go somewhere between low (egg scrambles) and a little less than medium (fried eggs).

Repeat after me .... "Hot pan + cold oil .... food will not stick". How many years did the Frugal Gourmet try to drum that mantra into our heads, gang?
