A SINGLE man who lives by himself owns and does all his cooking with one single pan, it has emerged.
Nathan Muir of Colchester uses the same sauté pan which his mum bought him when he left home to cook everything from scrambled eggs to omelettes, and has never felt the need to purchase any more.
He said: “They sell these sets of pans. Why I don’t know. Just wash the pan after you’ve used it and stop being so lazy.
“I can’t exactly cook with two pans at once, can I? I’m not an octopus. Anyway the stove’s back burners don’t work. It’s a rented flat after all.
“My last girlfriend said I at least needed a frying pan, but what use is that when I need to boil an egg? Exactly. Whereas this pan’s an all-rounder.
“I think people only get lots of different pans to look like they’re better cooks than they are. Whereas actually I’m the best cook, because I can do it all using one pan.”
Ex-girlfriend Grace Wood-Morris said: “I left Nathan over his f**king tragic devotion to that pan, so please don’t tell him he makes a brilliant bacon sandwich on it.”
