Single Fry Pan
Been using for 2 weeks now. I add a few drops of oil before cracking the egg and it works fine.

Cute Pan but some design flaws
Cute little pan that creates the perfect shape for putting an egg on a muffin or cutting in half and putting in a pita. But.....the handle is weighted too heavily and on the burner without the eggs in it will tip over. I have a gas stove and the burners are not flat. If I put the eggs in first and then put on the burner, the weight evens out. Also, like others pointed out, be prepared to use a non stick spray and even with that, your eggs will stick. The handle can get too hot as well but I normally don't have a problem with that because I don't grab by the penquin.

The pan does work great for a single egg, and yes you do have to use oil or spray (which is no big deal to me). However, I agree that the handle gets so hot that I've burnt my hand. If this could be fixed I would buy more of them.

I love mine!
I love mine, it works exactly as described and is very useful. It fits on my kitchen wall really easily, hanging from a nail and is cute there too.

non-stick? NO it STICKS, Sucks
Do not waste your money! No matter how much butter you use, the non-stick functionality still does not work. from day 1 this never worked as a "non-stick" egg cooking solution. i would recommend it if the non-stick coating works, but it does NOT! great idea, poor product quality.

great little pan!
I bought this pan as a freshman in college because it was small and so easy to fit in my dorm, and I've found has been a great investment ever since. Aside from the advantage its small size offers in terms of storage, it's just the right size to leave you with a nice round egg, in which the white actually gets a little fluffy, rather than just spread in skinny tendrils as often happens with a larger pan. Plus, the whimsy is a nice little touch for the morning. As one reviewer observed, the pan is not really non-stick, so you should use a little butter or olive oil.

Single Fry Pan
I use this little pan almost every day to make wonderful egg McMuffins at home. Using this pan and the accompanying small egg turner makes cooking breakfast very quick and easy. Just remember since the pan is small in diameter, you must reduce the flame (for gas stoves) or position it closer to you (off center) with electric stoves.

Do not waste your money.
The handle on this fry pan, including the Penguin, got so hot that I severely burnt my hand.
