    Water makes them fluffier because the water evaporates leaving air bubbles in the egg.
    Milk binds to the proteins in the egg making the egg tougher, but more flavorful.
    I usually do a combination of the two, which gives eggs that are a little fluffy, but still flavorful.

    Don't put too much water! LOL It actually makes them light and fluffy. Just a small splash of water. Then beat them very well.

    Water?? Water is flavorless....why add water when you can add milk, which will increase the creamyness, right? Water is what you add whenever you want to DILUTE something, so why dilute the flavor of the eggs with water? :):)

    It's just a small splash, like a teaspoon, and it makes the eggs much fluffier. You can taste up the eggs anyway you wish.

    Water works better than milk for fluffiness.

    I usually use a splash of milk when I make scrambled eggs or an omelette. It does make the
    eggs fluffier and taste better.
    The french omelette requires a little water in the egg.

    Cooking on low heat without any additives in olive oil makes them the best!

    What makes eggs fluffy is whisking . Whisking incorporates air. Most scrambled eggs are over cooked and that makes them tough. Cook until just moist ; they will keep cooking after removed from the heat.

    Melt a little butter in a pan, add throughly whisked eggs and a splash of milk or water, salt, pepper. In Texas, we often add hot sauce or pico when they are served.

    Yes but nearly the same effect can be done by just using a hand mixer or whisk and beating the eggs then when you cook them let the bottom cook until the last possible minute then fold instead of doing a fast scramble.

    I personally do not like eggs that have added milk or water but its more of a preference thing.

    Milk, I ain't talking about none of the 2% crap either. I am talking the milk that makes your arteries harden as you speak kind.

    Yes. However, this kind of cooking technique requires tremendous discipline... it should only be attempted by trained professionals...
