T Fal have recognised this and have come up with the 5 inch aluminum, one egg pan for just that purpose.
Of course there isn’t anything stopping you using the one egg pan for cooking small quanities of anything, but personally I like to keep my egg pans just for eggs. This is just a hang over from ‘the old days’ when the material used in pans wasn’t like it is now and if you used your pan for anything other than the eggs, they would forevermore, stick to the bottom.
Of course this doesn’t happen with today’s technology. And so there is no reason why you can’t cook a single serve of anything you like in the pan and you will still get the same excellent results when you cook your egg.
The T-Fal 5-in. Aluminum One Egg Pan has a non stick surface that makes it easy to clean and the aluminum will give you quick even heating.
Hand washing is recommended for non stick surfaces but as the eggs don’t stick, this is and easy task.
