When diver and Olympic bronze medalist Tom Daley set out to post an Instagram photo of the English breakfast he was making for his American boyfriend, Dustin Lance Black, he wasn’t prepared for the outpour of responses he would receive over his frying pan. 

Sunday morning full English breakfast for the American :)

Just one quick look at the cooking device and you might have one of two responses:


1. “Wow, what a convenient way to make breakfast.”

2. “There is no way in hell that pan can properly cook all those items at once.”

The MasterPan All-In-One Frying Pan, however, is capable of making breakfast dreams come true.


The fry pan has designated sections, so you can simultaneously cook your eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, and beans. The item description reads,

One pan to rule them all… MasterPan All-In-One Frying Pan is a humungous 38cm wide frying pan, designed to cook every damn thing at once.

But not everyone on the internet was sold.


To settle the score once and for all, Daley’s boyfriend took to Instagram to prove the pan was no hoax.

With all the curiosity around @tomdaley1994’s new pan, thought I’d share the result: #mesmerized. Just add #HP

According to the Daily Mail, as a result of the press, the MasterPan saw a spike in sales. After the photo was posted, The Fowndry, the company behind the pan, sold out of the product (meant to last for three months) within three days. All for a good English breakfast.
