This Pan Is the Secret to Making Perfect Omelets at Home
Less butter and the perfect egg slide? Yeah, you need one.
I've been trying to perfect a French-style rolled omelet for about two years. It's only slightly embarrassing that although I work for a food magazine and consider myself a pretty decent cook, I could never seem to nail this classic egg dish. (If you have no idea what kind of omelet I'm talking about, this is a good video tutorial.)
I thought I was destined to have unintentional scrambled eggs (aka my omelet fails) forever, until I decided to switch up my cookware. I tried the 10-inch GreenPan ceramic nonstick fry pan and was seriously amazed. It cooked my eggs evenly, I didn't have to use as much butter and my omelet slid out of the pan with ease. (Side note: Is there *anything* more satisfying than the perfect egg slide?)
This piece of cookware is an investment, but right now it's on sale for $99 at Williams-Sonoma. And it's not just great for cooking eggs. It's oven-safe up to 600 degrees, so you can sear, roast or sauté to your heart's content.
I also love that it's chip-resistant (and ok to use with metal utensils) and free of potentially harmful perfluorocarbons (PFCs), so you don't have to worry about icky chemicals leaching into your food. Plus, it's dishwasher safe, which is a must-have for lazy cooks like me. Basically, it's perfect.
Buy one and perfect a French omelet—something tells me you'll have more time at home to nail the technique.
