An inexpensive one, maybe. I don't have much space in the pots and pans drawer.

That Calphalon omelette pan isn't what I call inexpensive. A quick search and the cheapest I can find is CAD 47. I'm not sure I like that kind of omelette that much.

I'll have a look, but I don't expect that good a bargain.

Thanks for reminding me that grocery stores often carry stuff like that.

I need to come onto this thread once more to thank Taxy for giving us a link to the Julia Child omelet technique. It's so easy and good that I had to purchase an 8 inch non-stick pan today, something I swore I'd never purchase (non-stick pans). I've experimented with seasonings in the egg, and with toppings. They've all come out great.

Thanks TaxLady.

Don't buy a crappy grocery store pan.
You are a Costco member, right?
They have a two pan set of non-stick for $29.00. It consists of one 10 inch saute/omelet and one 12 inch. It could 9" and 10" not exactly sure.
But, these look and feel just like Calphalon. They are the Kirkland brand. The price was so good I bought the two pans.

Time will tell how good they are. But for $29.00, its a good deal anyway you look at it. Both have riveted handles and are oven safe.

I usually follow the North american/English way of making omelets but for lunch today I followed the Pepin French omelet method demonstrated in his video.

I have to say I am impressed! It worked a treat and I ended up with a lovely spinach and Swiss cheese omelet, nicely set on the outside and cooked but almost a tad creamy on the inside. I think this is my new omelet making method. It was delicious!

edit: I used my tried and trusted old Le Creuset omelet pan, so no probs with the fork scratching the inside.

Good point. I am a member of Costco and will have a look.

I was thinking of getting one at Loblaws or Maxi, one of the President's Choice Brand. But, I just remembered. I have bought a PC digital thermometer and a PC burr coffee grinder. I threw them both away. PC Brand is often good in food, but maybe not so good in kitchen stuff.

Huhhh? Why not? I can't imagine how someone who loves to cook as much as you do wasn't at least as curious about non stick pans as well as everything else having to do with cooking. Next thing ya know you'll be frying grated Parm. cheese to make lacy and tasty disks for salad toppings.

I've had non-stick pans, a long time ago. That's why I swore them off. I hear they have improved a lot since the '70s.
