ommelet maker
« on: March 20, 2019, 07:45:49 AM »
does anyone have one?  I was at a hotel over the weekend that had delicious ommelets and I went to look online.

https://www.amazon.com/Holstein-Housewares-HH-0937012SS-Omelet-Maker/dp/B01J681UF0/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1UJ0OOFVSXTVZ&keywords=ommelete+maker&qid=1553085846&s=gateway&sprefix=ommelet%2Caps%2C150&sr=8-1

it's cheap enough, for sure.

It doesn't really seem like a necessary item since they are super easy and quick to make in a pan but if you have the storage space why not.


I am personally not a fan of omelets with the filling cooked into it. I prefer it as a filling wrapped on the inside.

I think if you liked it, have storage room, etc-- you should get it! This is the kind of stuff that I personally avoid-- but I find it no big deal to cook an omelet. So, ymmv, for sure!

I did accidentally buy a breakfast sandwich grill at one point and T LOVES that thing.

The one  thing I will say, and you may find the same with this omelet maker, which is a similar style, is that it is hard to clean. Anything that sloshes over the side, etc, just is tough to get 100% clean every time.

There are a number of reviews that say it is only nonstick for a few months of use though.

I had a waffle iron that lost its non-stick abilities and one day it ended up in the trash with waffle all over it because I was so pissed off.

That looks more like a frittata maker than an omelet maker. Like MM, I like my omelet ingredients in the center, with the eggs on top. I think you could get the same effect from a small cast iron pan (or 2) in the oven and would be a pan you could use for other things. YMMV, but I'm also not a fan of teflon/non-stick coatings. People are generally really bad about not over heating them. You can get the same result from a good, well-seasoned cast iron pan without the nastiness of teflon.

Yes, the clen up makes me hesitant.  I think I will pass on it.
