I learned to flip an omelette (American style) when working at the Holiday Inn's breakfast buffet. My first was in front of an audience... of course, I warned them to stand back. It went well!

I taught my son to flip eggs when he was about 10. While practicing is probably when he developed high cholesterol!

I actually used to be able to do this, but in recent years for some reason, lost the knack of it.

Just get out the pan and practice; it's like riding a bicycle, you never really forget. Lot's of luck and don't spill the beans. ROFL!!

Or,,,,,one could always purchase one of those awful split "Omelette" pans and be done with it. Of course that would be akin to stowing away on the Titanic. Have a nice voyage........................

Callisto said it right......... Also, get yourself a 1# bag of beans and practice flipping them in your omlette pan. And practice...and practice....and practice some more. But nothing helps with egg beaters. I have to eat them because of my diet and have had no luck. I just end up scrambling them as best I can. They don't look pretty.
There's no reason to flip an omelette. A proper omelette can be made without flipping, and if done properly, there will be no browning.

And 10" is huge. Much too big for a 2 or 3 egg omelette.

from back to when i was a kid, i can't eat browned eggs. the flavor changes and tastes burned to me. years later when i was an adult i read somewhere (it was several years ago and i can't remember where) that browned eggs were not healthy because the protein is changed in some way. has anyone else read this before? i only order poached eggs when i eat out.

come to think about it i don't see many people flipping omelets. i usually see the 2 or 3 fold onto the plate method. flipping an over easy egg is a tricky accomplishment. i learned to do out of necessity when i lost my spatula after a move and just HAD to have a "dipping" egg. LOL
