Start the skillet with a little fat and use a lower heat.

You could use a dish towel too...

Okay, that's another reason I'll keep that skillet just for eggs. I already cook the eggs low and slow, with a lid. I like my bacon crispy, it would take forever at low heat.

It's good to know if I ever have to use the same pan for eggs and for bacon. But, I have enough different pans that I can pick the one I like best for a job. I usually do bacon on ungreased stainless steel.

I didn't say low heat, I said lower heat. When I finish cooking the sausage and potato, the skillet is too hot for eggs so I turn off the burner and cook the eggs with residual heat. I cover the skillet so the topside of the eggs cooks. But that's just me.

i can only speak from experience.the hard anodised aluminium pans i have were bought about 8 years ago.not a "posh" brand(couldn't afford it,rebuilding after divorce)not even kirkland.they were tesco own brand.they are mid weight between aluminium & s/steel.they have been dropped,used in the oven,on the hob & even on the barbecue.i use metal utensils sometimes & whereas they are not as good as new,they are damn near & still so non stick that i don't always have to use oil when frying.i have solid iron electric hob plates so it is easy to tell if a pan has warped & these are still 100% flat & true.

you cannot beat the price - quality that Sam's club offers on their "commercial" line. They are on the par with better non-stick pans, and also their plain aluminum pans are also exelent.
I have number of pans I bought from them and I am extremely happy.
