Whenever I try to make an omlette, or a crepe, they always seem to stick to the pan. Thus, they fall apart when I try to turn them over, and not only that but they are usualy burned as well.

How should I go about fixing this? It kind of ruins the meal in a way, and a burnt omlette doesnt really taste too well :\ Any ideas?

If you don't want it sticking at all you're going to have to use some sort of fat, but your first priority should be purchasing a non-stick pan.

Well I do have the buttery spray (I cant belive its not butter), o calories, 0 fats.
So I assume that doesnt work then?
Anyway, how much do non-sticking pans generaly go for?

Prolly about 12 bucks up to 20 bucks, non stick pans are kick ass, just dont put it in the dish washer, you just need a try towl to clean it with..

big tex... why can't you put the pan's in the dishwasher? if you have a decent pan, putting it in the dishwasher shouldn't cause any problems. I've had mine for quite awhile and clean it via the dishwasher repeatedly.

who gave you that non-stick pan myth?

Im a chef and I cook on the non stick pans up to 30 times a day, and we have found they last longer if you just wipe them with a dry towl. If they are a good quality pan, and if you dont make a huge mess, there should be no reason to put it in the dish washer

You can also get one of those pump action oil sprayers. That's what I use to coat the pan before cooking.
