Sausage cooked in the pan followed by eggs.

Canola oil used during sausage. Setting 6 of 10 on heat.  For 15minutes prior to cooking eggs.


Eggs slightly undercooked.

Pan too hot, after cooking sausage pull pan from burner reduce heat to 4-5, after 5mins. or so return pan to heat , you should really have enough fat in pan from sausage.

You've been battling the" cast iron cooking" for a while now, haven't you?. You get it keep persevering!!

I have jars of it in the fridge I made with this pan and use it to cook with.


But I figured the canola oil and fat from the sausage would be good enough for the eggs.

You used too much heat. Try 3 or 4 not 6.

Soak and clean your pan.



Next time, as noted, use 3 to 4 and give the pan plenty of time to pre heat.



Rinse the pan but try not to scrub the oils off of the surface so much.



Repeat.  You'll have it stick free in fairly short order.

+1

I have an electric stove, glass top, and I almost never go over 5/medium for anything. (Only exception is if I'm pan-searing a steak a-la the Alton Brown method). Bacon, burgers, grilled cheese, eggs, sausage, chicken...anything, they all get cooked at 5, never more than that.

That, and with eggs (I make mine over easy usually)...always use more butter than you think you need. Be luxurious with it. It really does help, and depending on how you make your eggs any excess is usually left behind in the pan anyway.

It might take 10 minutes to get the pan to the heat I need, sure, but I've never had a pan of eggs that stuck to anything once I got it seasoned


Sheesh I'm honestly considering setting up a side business of curing pans and selling them to people who can't get it right themselves

Operator error.

Your fault.

I don't go higher than 3 (I think my stove is out of 7 or 8) for eggs even with my teflon pan
I'd probably keep it at 2 for cast iron

You need to control the heat a bitt better.

The eggs will always stick if the heat is wrong.

You also need to keep scrambled eggs moving and get them out of the pan before they finish.  

Cast Iron is awesome!

Yup. I just picked up an old as hell Griswold #7 that is polished like glass.  Stripping and reasoning as I can.
