Making Scrambled Eggs with Stainless Steel Pan

Do you worry that eggs will stick on your stainless steel pan?

As a matter of fact, there's no need to worry as there's no reason you should hesitate to cook eggs with your stainless pan.  Cooking eggs in stainless steel pan or skillet is simple and easy.  To make scrambled eggs, you'll need to have eggs (suggesting 3 eggs per serving), cooking oil, salt and pepper to taste and a spatula.  Before cooking, make sure your pan or skillet has been seasoned.

  • Prepare your eggs before cooking.  Crack the eggs into a shallow bowl.  Thin the eggs mixture with either milk or water.  Use approximately one teaspoon of milk or water per egg.  Mixing eggs with the liquid will make the cooked scrambled eggs more tender.  Whisk the egg mixture until well combined.
  • Preheat your pan/skillet on medium heat for about 2-3 minutes or until you feel the hot air when putting the hand over the pan/skillet.
  • Put in enough cooking oil to cover the bottom of the pan/skillet then immediately turn the heat down to medium-low and pour the egg mixture in.  Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste.
  • Let the eggs begin to set before stirring the egg mixture.
  • Use the spatula to scrape the eggs from the edge of the pan to the center, forming large soft curds.  Continue scraping your spatula along the bottom of the pan to redistribute the eggs as they cook.
  • When the eggs look wet but are no longer liquid, gently mound the eggs into the center of the pan/skillet.
  • Turn off the heat and leave the pan/skillet on the stove.  The heat from the pan will continue cooking the eggs.
  • Transfer scrambled eggs to a plate and serve.

The key to perfection is that you'll need low, gentle heat and patience in order to make good moist scrambled eggs.  You stainless steel pan also needs to be seasoned and preheated before cooking.  The cooking oil layer serves as non-stick coating as well as adding flavor to the eggs.
