Best Cookware for Omelets and Frittatas

Breaking a few eggs and tossing together some chopped ingredients might make the humble omelet seem like one of life’s simplest kitchen creations. But the fear of flipping your omelet all over the floor, notwithstanding, a poorly made omelet might turn out runny, rubbery or burned to a crisp. And while we’re all for the master craftsman not blaming his tools when things go awry, a well-constructed omelet pan, whether it’s a multipurpose pan or one designed specially for foods like omelets and frittatas, can go a long, long way to helping you achieve the perfect fluffy interior, crispy edges and restaurant-grade presentation.

Best Specialty Value

TeChef Frittata and Omelet Pan

None

Omelets to Order. A simple but effective way to bring the hot-breakfast station to your home.

What We Liked

A specialized omelet pan like this dual-sided piece from South Korea-based TeChef will take the headache out of messy omelet flips over a single frying pan. Divide your egg mix equally on both sides, then add chopped omelet ingredients like cheese, onion and pepper on one side; when you’re ready to combine, simply flip the other half onto the main side and get ready to serve, an easy task with the non-stick Teflon surface. Get it here.
