Thanks. I guess you can't really go wrong with the calphalon warranty. I think all clad nonstick pans also probably have the same type of warranty. I'd be curious to know what some of the cooks who cook omelets daily use.

If you're interested in Calphalon non-stick, you can find a 10" and 12" (packaged together) with lifetime warranty for $50 at dept stores, on amazon, etc...

I wouldn't shy away from cast iron though. I make all my omelets and egg dishes in mine. It works as well as any non-stick pan I've used. I use it for baking, for frying, for making sauces. The best part is that I can scrape it, cut on it, use whatever I want on it. It's very versatile. Yeah, it's a bit heavy, but I never have the need to use non-stick. I'm not really a fan.

While I love my cast iron pans, always use non-stick for omelets. Lightweight & do what they're supposed to do: non-stick. I can't imagine trying to flip an omelet in a cast-iron pan.

Lodge makes a rounded wall/light slope CI skillet ... thou it still would be heavy to flip

Williams Sonoma sells a "French Steel Crepe Pan" made in France for $25. It is 9" wide, 1" deep and makes an 8" crepe or omelette. This is the type of pan traditionally used in France for omelettes. It needs to be seasoned and lore has it that good French cooks never use the pan for anything but eggs and, once seasoned, just wipe it out with a towel. It is light enough to flip, unlike tradition cast iron.

If you are making your omelettes with a lump of good butter, 2 eggs beaten with a bit of salt, and reasonable heat (not enough to brown the butter), you will get a perfect non-stick omelette every time.

I'm not sure the salt is absolutely necessary for a "perfect non-stick omelette". Have never used it, & still get great omelettes. Herbs & any filling won't have you missing any unnecessary salt added to the eggs.
