    My husband and I love our executive cookware, but everytime he cooks eggs (sunny side up), they stick. He gets sooo frustrated! He keeps trying to go back to our old pans (they are gross and peeling, but NEVER stick). I had to finally throw them away so he'll stop using them. I have personally never had anything stick to them, but he swears they are bad for eggs. What's up?? Are we doing something wrong?

    Even though I have heard many say that you don't have to use butter or oil in our nonstick pans, for eggs....I ALWAYS add a pat of butter or margarine, heat up the pan till the butter melts and bubbles, and then add in my eggs. First, I like the flavor it adds, plus for something as delicate as sunny side up eggs, you need it.

    How high of a heat is he using? For sunny side up, medium is as high as you would want to go I think.

    I haven't had any problems either. I even tried it without any oil and it was fine. I usually just brush the pan with oil first.

    I never use oil on my eggs but I have found if I dont let the pan get warm enough then the eggs will stick.

    I use the spritzer, but I agree that the temp that you set it on makes a difference. Make sure he's not putting it too high.

    Yup gotta agree - pan should be heated on Med heat for about 5 minutes before putting eggs in - no oil or butter ever needed - slide right out -

    I never use butter or oil in my exec pans when making eggs. Sounds like either he doesn't let the pan heat up first or he heats it too high. Mine stick when I heat too high.
