Learning how to make an omelette is really useful. It makes a quick, simple and delicious meal whether you eat it plain or add extra ingredients as a filling.
The secret to a perfect omelette? It has to be using really fresh eggs and a dedicated omelette pan.
In an ideal world you should never use your omelette pan for anything else. Doing so would mean that it would need washing, which could then cause your omelettes to stick.
So what is an omelette pan? Well, it is basically a small frying pan, about 7 to 8 inches in diameter (which will hold 3-4 eggs), and made from either thick aluminium or cast iron, with or without a non-stick finish. A feature of a good omelette pan is the curved edge which makes it a lot easier to turn out the finished product.
