timmmay: I cook eggs how I like 'em - pan hot to the point of smoking, bit of oil, then scramble them with some cheese. So cast iron and stainless steel are similar for this role... ok I'll have a look when I next see a sale at Stevens or Briscoes :)


That's a brutal way to cook eggs, you'd hardly taste the egg at all.  My kids would love it too. laughing

I would try either cast iron or carbon steel (not stainless steel) for your application. The seasoning part is not hard and if you bought a cheap pan it doesn't matter anyway.

Possibly, I just like them better that way. I like them the way cafes cook them too, but not as much as my way. It gets worse, I usually cook them with beans and hot Mexican chillis in adobo sauce, so nope I don't really taste the eggs!

Thanks for your thoughts, I'll look around for one of 'em :)

timmmay: So.. for cooking eggs and vegetables at high heat, steel or cast iron?
i don't fry eggs at high heat but either use one of our non-stick pans or the skillet.  i never had much luck frying eggs in stainless as the eggs seemed to stick too easily (probably something i'm doing wrong) but always worked out better in the skillet.
