4 Options When Choosing the Best Pan for Cooking Eggs

by Lisa Thompson @ RunCooking.com

One of the most frustrating things about cooking eggs is finding the appropriate frying pan to use. If you choose one too thick the pan may never heat up in a timely manner. Choose a pan too small and you may not have enough room to stir the contents. Finally, if you choose a pan that isn’t non-stick leaves you with a cleanup that could last you until the next meal. So now you are left to scour the Internet for a set of pans that fit your every need. But the number of options online is so mind numbing
