    I think this is because the fat isn't really absorbed into the egg, unlike a lovely fried mushroom which soaks it all up! If you put a tbsp of oil in a pan to fry an egg and measured most of it afterwards, I doubt much would have been used up.

    Same goes for fish from the chippy, it's free if you take the batter off....

    Seems to good to be true!! I can never get mine to cook properly when I use frylight as it is overdone on bottom and gets stuck to pan and snotty on top. Would love some tips. I tend to stick to poached or boiled eggs now because of it.

    I spray with sprylight, put in the egg, turn down the heat a little, then cover the frying pan with a saucepan lid. This seems to then cook the top so its not 'snotty'. Works everytime :0)

    turn the heat right down you have your pan too high as its cooking the bottom before the top. Sometimes if i have the pan too hot take it off the heat and you'll find the egg will still cook.

    That's what I do, and if you put the lid on it takes care of the 'snottiness'
