This 8" fry pan is a perfect omelet pan for individual size and handy for smaller saute.

I like the handle, but found that the pan was too thin to hold heat well. Cooking scrambled eggs took 25% longer than my old Pampered Chef pan. I did test lower temperatures as recommended by the marketing department, but ended up back at my standard temperature.
Also, despite using canola oil, the eggs do stick.
ManPans: Thank you for your honest review. We realize that these pans are not for everyone nor should this be the only pan in your arsenal. They do take a little more work and time to cook some foods in but we think the benefits of nontoxic, nonreactive taste, durable, long lasting, metal utensil safe outweigh the criticism. When frying you must start with a clean surface and use a metal spatula and some oil. Check out the cookware comparison chart under About ManPans.

My 8 inch ManPans skillet ended my quest for a safe nonstick surface for cooking eggs. The use of low heat makes for a gentle, predictable cooking surface that truly is nonstick. When patience with the low heat is exercised, fried eggs turn out perfectly. Simple cleanup is an added bonus.
ManPans: We are happy you found the secret to frying eggs! While ManPans does not have a non-stick surface like most polymer coated pans, it does have a stick- resistant surface that is non-toxic. The key to longevity is to keep this surface clean using an occasional deep cleaning with dry salt or by using Bar Keepers Friend cleaner. See our care and use section.

I just want to say this frying pan is really nice. It is just what i have been looking for.
The eggs fried really nice and they didn't stick. It cleans really very easy.
Thank you Jill Gruberger
ManPans note: Thanks for the review Jill! You must understand that if you cook your eggs on a low heat setting, allowing your pan to get up to temperature before use, eggs cook perfectly. Also, the use of a metal spatula really helps!

It is wonderful to have a pan that the
scrambled eggs don't stick to ! Great to use.

I had been looking for a "Green" pan, so was avoiding a lot of what's out there today. A few I had been looking at were Cast Iron, Ceramic, etc. The idea of using metal utensils and cooking with less fat than cast iron was a Win-Win for me. I only bought the 8in fry pan to test it out before coming back for the set. I must say that so far I am very pleased with the performance of this pan, and I will be back for more cookware. I like to cook with a low flame anyway to control time. This pan heats evenly and required far less flame than my old pan. It weighs less too which is nice for my wife. Clean up was even easier than expected. The four rivets which hold the handle on to the base of the pan are the only issue with cleaning, if your not careful food can get left behind in crevices here, but the plus side is that the handle is firmly attached and has a nice solid feel. Lastly I love that these pans are made right here in the good ol' US of A. Thanks ManPans for making a great product!

I bought these pans for my husband and he loves them! He thinks they're the best pans he's ever used. And he loves that they're made in America!

There is just my husband and I now and so we don't need big pans. I have RA and the lightness of the pans are great and so easy to clean. I wish that we had these years ago. It doesn't take much heat to cook with. I like that this ECO-friendly and made here in America. I feel that this is a safe product.

We have only cooked eggs in this pan and so far the non stick is working great. It also cleans up very easy.

i love this little pan! so light and i just want to grab that fat handle and flip my food. it needs just a little butter to keep the omlettes from sticking and a little care. i like to think of it as a light-weight alternative to cast iron.
