You clearly haven't read this thread. It's not just the edges.

It's the pan
I'm sorry. Its not the pan. No matter how you say it. And I mean no disrespect.

It's no surprise that different pans cook differently. So a Greenpan is not cooking eggs well when it's used a certain way. So yes, it's the pan because it cooks differently from another pan. BUT Yes, it's the cook because you have to change your process to accommodate pan differences.

So forget abut griddle videos and McDonalds videos, etc. Focus on the pan you have.

Had NO issues cooking them on it.
Same gas cooker, same oil, same brand of eggs.

It's the pan.

I've taken photos but won't let me upload from my phone. Will upload later.
Return, donate or toss the pan? Life is too short to worry about eggs..

Wrong. As I showed, other people with greenpans have the exact same issue and they're not even aware of it as seen in that video I linked to and many others.

Did you miss the bit where I state I've had this pan for years and I've tried many different methods of frying eggs in it?
I've tried different fats, temperature, how long I heat the fat for before putting the egg onto it.

It's very obviously the pan and NOT my fault.
This isn't an ego thing. It's, I've tried many many ways and it always results in this.

It's. The. Pan.

I think like pizza pans, the carbonised layer on the cheap pan is what makes it so damn effective at being non stick.

On my expensive greenpan, which is non stick, eggs stick. A lot.
The non stick is very much intact.

On this dirt cheap non stick and much older and far far far more used pan, eggs don't stick. At all.

The cooking surface makes or breaks the outcome clearly.

If you live in the UK, once the restrictions are lifted, come here and cook eggs on the greenpan.
I will film it and share the link here so others can see that I'm not wrong.

Because I guarantee you will not be able to cook eggs without what happens when I do on the Greenpan.

Clearly your mind is made up. Why are you banging your head against the wall? Go buy a new pan!

If there is no doubt in your mind that it's the pan, why did you come here and ask for help? Remember your plea? "Please help...".

You've been helped in numerous ways:

You could buy a different pan
You could try a smaller burner
You could try different heat levels
You could try different fats
You could try a lid.

Read back over the thread for a comprehensive list.

...or keep banging your head against the wall.

..again you're not reading all the posts. I didn't know until JUST EARLIER TODAY having cooked eggs on this pan.

As I already said MANY times I've tried all those different methods.
Last one was a different pan having realised after trying many other ways, that it's the pan and not my method of cooking.

Don't think buying a new pan would help. This pan works despite it being ancient.
Tefal pans, once they lose their non stick coating, which is a matter of one or two weeks, become useless for cooking eggs in.
This applies to almost all non stick pans.

As I said. I think it's the carbonised layer that's on this pan that makes it so damn good.

I'll try it again tomorrow and see what happens.
