Which size Pot Shop pan for scrambled eggs?

Sirrith | Jan 30, 201601:56 AM     11

Hi all, I've been using a very thin De Buyer pan to make my eggs for the past few years, and I'd like to move on to something thicker and less rust-prone. Even though the price of the Pot Shop of Boston omelette pans is quite offputting, I think I'll treat myself.

The question is, what size should I get? 8" or 10"? I'll be getting the "natural" finish. I like my scrambled eggs with rather large curds and juuuuust a little bit runny. I cook them quite quickly, they're done in under 2 minutes. Normally I do 2 eggs if it's just for myself, but sometimes do go up to 4 (although I have no problem with doing 2 rounds). The 8" should be enough for this, but because it only costs $20 more, I'm very tempted to get the 10". Is there any downside to me just getting the larger pan if I do only 2 eggs most of the time? I'd hate to spend that much money only to realise that I bought the wrong size.

Thanks!
