Having an egg pan is of interest to most cooks. Eggs can be delicate or strong, and as such, they require special attention. Once you find your good egg pan, it should be guarded and kept away from all of your other every day pans. Even if you don't go to such extreme measures to protect your good egg pan from unwanted use, it should at least be noted that good egg pans are important enough to consider special.

The Calphalon Unison Slide Nonstick 10-inch Fry Pan with Poacher Insert makes choosing an egg pan easy. The nonstick surface is appropriate for standard egg preparation, like scrambled, fried, or over-easy, but the highlight of this pan is the removable insert. The six-cup egg poacher insert makes it easy to add a popular, but often underused, option to your egg repertoire. There are many methods and theories on the best way to poach an egg, but most of these approaches are designed to be used to keep the egg from running or spreading out. With a confined egg, safely ensconced in an individual cup, you no longer need worry about wayward eggs.

Dishwasher and oven safe, the pan can, of course, be used for a variety of applications. Constructed of heavy-gauge hard-anodized aluminum with a stay-cool handle, the pan could handle most every day jobs. However, considering the importance a good egg pan is to the kitchen, you may just choose not to.
