Why Would You Get an Omelet Maker?

Updated on March 17, 2010

For many people omelet is part of the satiating breakfast. Combined with sandwiches or a bowl of cornflakes, the omelet can be a complementing side dish or it can be enjoyed on its own. 

Basic and plain omelets are made of salt and eggs, it doesn't take much expertise to prepare them in a pan, but for those who like to do more things at once, and time is a factor, omelet maker is a must.

Omelet, or otherwise referenced to as omelette makers are cheap kitchen appliances, in the ballpark of a sandwich maker. If you already have a sandwich toaster, you'll probably want to buy a plain omelet maker, because more advanced models will let you toast sandwiches and make waffles which you obviously do not want. They cost more, too.

There are three basic variations of the omelet makers. Electronic is going allow you to cook other meals too. These are pretty much the same as a sandwich maker only with deeper panels to prevent the egg from spilling. Choose one of these if you don't have a sandwich toaster and would like to have a good all-rounder kitchen tool.

Microwave oven omelet makers are kidney shaped plastic bowls stuck together with a hinge. You can use these in your microwave oven. The most important benefit is the ease of cleaning. After you've made your omlet in one of these, put it under hot water and flush. The non-stick surface will make sure you don't have to think about it too much.

Oven top omelet makers are like a pan split in half. You can pour egg into one half and close the thing. After a while you can turn it for a perfectly turned result. These pans can be used to make pancakes too.

Even if you don't have an omelet maker, cooking one in a regular pan is a walk in the park.

Hatch 2-3 eggs into a bowl. Salt it and start mixing with a fork. Once it's nicely scrambled, pour the mix into a pre-heated pan and let it stay for a few seconds. After about 20-25 seconds the bottom layer of eggs is starting to cook, so using a wooden spoon or spatula push the edges towards the middle.

It will allow the still uncooked liquid blend of egg white and yolk to flow to the bottom of the pan and touch with the hot surface. Do this a few times and when it's all solid, switch the oven off. Fold it in half and slip it to a plate. The first one probably won't be perfect, but you'll be able to master it in a few attempts.

If you think it's too hard, or want to save time on the process, or like the omelet a bit more thick and filled with other ingredients, an omelet maker is just for you.
