I don't want to use a metal flipper on my nonstick pans, but my plastic ones just cling to the eggs (even when I spray them with oil). Does anyone know of a good flipper for eggs?
Funny I've been looking myself and to no avail. I bought a inexpensive one from a supermarket and one from WS eggs stick to both. Ugh
Pampered chef makes rubber scrapers safe to 500 degrees. They came in several sizes. I really like them. I can get in there and do what I want. My other Half likes spatulas safe for nonstick. I think they are too combersome and bulky. They have no precision.
I also like them because I can push the egg white around and shape the egg.
Can you use those to safely flip an over-easy egg?
Yes. I don it all the time. The edges are. Urged which really helps. Is a scraper with a scoured off spoon shape. There is more than 1 size. I prefer the smaller.
Edges are curved - scraper with squared off spoon shape
May I suggest the small silicone one from Oxo -- also recommended by Serious Eats, so you know it's got to be good: http://www.seriouseats... As noted there, it's called a "cookie turner" but it is absolutely perfect for eggs. ;o)
I should have known Serious Easts would have answered this exact question. Thanks!
