Very fast and perfect for something you need to eat quick before you take the train to work. I sprinkle some Gouda in if I have the spare time.

Too hot. Browning on an omelette means too hot. Turn the heat down - be patient. This would fail in French cooking class.

This omelet made my morning. I loved it and my kiddies loved it to. The only problem was that it took me 2 minutes to make and not the 40 seconds that is advertised on the recipe title at the top of the page. So that was a bit of false advertising on your behalf but other than that the omelet was amazing!

Hello... an "inverted pancake turner" is just a regular pancake turner, turned upside down... come on guys...

You don't need an inverted anything, any spat will do; preferably a rubber one.

Hey I'm a beginner, and this looks amazing. But I will use milk instead of water and a spatula instead of the inverted pancake turner... I hope it works!!

None of my local stores sell an "inverted pancake turner." What can I use instead? I'm at a loss!

This was a great recipe! I used milk instead of water though, because water ruins the consistency of the batter. I also used shredded turkey & chicken, cheese, and a little bit of sauteed onion to put inside. It was very filling!

This recipe is overly simple. I'd recommending using milk instead of water and making sure you season the egg mixture with just a little salt and pepper before cooking.

It was great for me just with cheese in the middle... grated Cheddar. I put the lid over the pan after I added the cheese so it would melt and then I flipped the side over.

That's a good one. A few suggestions:

* instead of water, use 2 tbsp milk per egg (4 tbsp 2% milk for 2 eggs)
* a dash of salt or Vegeta seasoning.
* add garlic powder, Italian seasoning to taste.
* use plastic spatula notion for tucking the omelet edges under.

This is a classic and it does take some practice. (Though Jacque Pepin made it look disgustingly easy on PBS...) But I've got a news flash for you, folks: the inside of any restaurant omelette is going to be "underdone" since the inside (or the top, as it cooks in the pan) doesn't touch the heat source. Once you've gone so far as to actually scrape the uncooked portion off the top and stuffed it underneath an edge to cook, then allowing it to cook longer will dry the top / inside out a bit but will also burn the bottom / outside. You could put it under broiler, but now you'd've made a frittata. And flipping it will indeed cook it but it won't be a "traditional" omelette then either: it'll be stuffed scrambed eggs! The theory holds that the heat from the folded omelette will finish cooking the inside. My thoughts? Just throw some cheese on the top / inside before filling; it'll melt and you'll never notice the "gross" and "slimy" consistency. And keep practicing!

'Tis better to flip the entire omelet before adding filling ingredients so the egg cooks through. Under-cooked eggs is the most common source of salmonella poisoning.

This worked okay for me. It took 3 minutes, not 40 seconds. Not sure about 'inverted pancake turner'. I used a spatula. I think the other commenter just didn't cook it long enough.
