I told me you can buy a omlette maker that cooks both sides at once and light up when the omlette is done. Do they really do a good job and which is the best one IYHO.

    I've only ever cooked one side of an Omelette, then rolled it in the pan as I serve it. Don't know that I'd ever want to cook both sides.

      This is the best omlette maker. I'm afraid that it doesn't light up though.

        Get yourself a teflon pan and read this, and you will be the best omelette maker--

          Neat link... although I don't buy the

          "Never allow any pan, particularly an iron one, to sit empty over heat--this does something to its internal structure so that foods stick to it forevermore."

          I let my Cast Iron and Carbon steel skillets sit over empty heat all the time to preheat and dry off -- I never have an issue with sticking.

            Me too. I once got a phone call while drying off a cast iron grill pan and forgot about it for about a half hour on medium heat and came back to find it much improved. Some of the accumulated polymerized fat had been reduced to ash, and the remaining surface was smoother after reseasoning.

              I have interview footage I did in a Michelin star'd restaurant, where the kitchen staff was super heating their carbon steel pans - almost red-hot. They had some belief that they cooked better if this was done weekly.
